My brain is not in hibernation that's why I'm not writing anything here. In fact, my brain and hands are working overtime to make enough merchandise in time for the craft show I'm joining in November. So many things to do, so little time!
I've got tons of pending projects I want to share and a few tutorials as well. So the sooner I go back to knitting, crocheting, sewing, gluing and get everything done. The sooner I can get back on track on my blogging.:)

It's almost 2 years since the last time I made these toys. The toys are starting to show it's age that the kids are ignoring it and wouldn't play with it anymore. So it's time to make new ones! I was too happy to do it.:)

It feels like forever since the last time I wrote a new entry to my blog. I've been working on new flowers and bows that I sell on my website and my felt addiction is back! Well, I'm going to have to blog all about that some other time.;)

It was my husband's birthday last Saturday which gave me a reason to bake a cake! The other reason why I opted to make one (instead of buying a yummy ice cream cake from Coldstone) is that I need to practice because I have a cake order in May.
It's been awhile since the last time I made Marshmallow Fondant and I saw this new recipe online that I just had to try. I also want to make sure how much cake batter I need to make a 10" round cake (2 layers) and 6" (2 layers).
I was looking for a moist, dense cake recipes because it works well for tiered cakes. For Greg's cake, I tried the butter cake recipe I saw on the Wilton website. I found it to be too sweet and turned a bit dry as well. So it's time to try some other recipes to find the best cake.:)
As for the design of Greg's cake, I still didn't have an idea of what to do until I covered the cake with fondant. At first I was going for the design I'm suppose to make for the cake order so that I can actually practice. But I felt that it's so unfair for the birthday boy if I give him a cake that won't actually represent him.
The figure is made to look like it's lying on it's tummy because my father-in-law told me that this is Greg's favorite position when he was still a kid while he watches tv.:)
It's a simple cake but made special for our Daddy Greg. Happy Birthday again and we love you!
