World Aids Day Dinner 2010

Handi's Cakes proudly supported the spectacular World Aids Day Dinner 2010 and I am proud to be part of this really meaningful event.

I made 5 tiers cake for the event with red signature ribbons all over the cake. Transporting the cake was a little challenging, but the cake finally made it to the dinner.

Covering the white section ... need more work to smooth it

Christening Cake for Madeleine

It's been a while since I updated my blog, but I guess better being late than never.
I am still crazily busy preparing my shop, and hopefully the shop will be ready by this year, then I can sit back and relax enjoying my glass of wine.

During this busy period, I got a little entertained by making the pink Christening cake for Madeleine, with all girly details from butterfly, bear, flower, and ribbon. Simple, girlish & clean concept.

From sketch to the real deal ....
