Gingerbread & Cutters

I've never tried gingerbread cookies, and I just got a gingerbread man cookie cutout thing from Germany AND I had nothing to do :P so I thought I'd try out my new cutters. I got many many MANY cutters! I just love them and I absolutely can not wait to use all of them.

I bought this very awesome printing cutter thing. It cuts out cookies shaped like biscuits and prints any word/sentence you want! I've been wanting to try it ever since I got it.

And here's the cute gingerbread man!! =)

Pretty Cool, huh?

Pin It now!

Cakes and Coffee Cups

The simplest things can sometimes be just amazing!

Coffee Cups, I never thought I'd ever make them out of fondant.

This cake is for my friend's mom, so it's a special cake. She likes coffee (obviously :P) and she likes blue.
So your truly decided to take the more challenging path! =D

I gave the fondant coffee cups a try and thought they looked cute and then created the cake around them. They weren't as hard to make as I believed they would be. The only challenge was making them stick without any tylose glue, which reminds me: I really should get my hands on some of that glue, it would make my life much easier..

Anyway, cups done! I did not want to simply just cover the cake with fondant. Then I remembered I once saw this marbled effect in a cake book I have (Yes, the Cakeboss one =D ). It was also brown and white, but for a beautiful fall cake (with fondant leaves and everything). So I got out my marshmallows and some brown and some white fondant. Then I twisted and kneaded till I got that marvelous marbled effect!

Isn't it just wonderful? So simple, yet so pretty.

After covering the cake with the marbled fondant, I placed the cups on top and added a little coffee (Nescafe to be exact) to the cups and voila!

Cakes and Coffee Cups, don't you just love it?!
