When I got home, was still in a sore kind of mood. Went to switch on the TV to see if there were any news as to what's happening.. but trust the TV news... which is like no news. All I saw was the ticker which read (translated) "Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as been released from jail... yada yada yada". Channel surfed for a while but there was nothing much to watch.. not even on my favorite Asian Food Channel (AFC) on Astro. Switched off the telly and went into the kitchen (ahhhh.. one of my favorite place to be). Saw the left over gum paste and fondant that I have from the last cuppie session. Mmmm.. now, why don't I do some gumpaste and fondant toppers. If you need the recipe for gumpaste, please hope over to Min's blog "Baking Projects".
Cleaned some of the cutters and other equipment that I needed. The time was around 11am.
Did I have fun... as my mood meter turned from sore.. to sour... to easy...to happy and smiling. Oh yes, playing with gumpaste and fondant is definitely therapeutic for me. Started off with the normal flowers and leaves cutters. These are easy and fun.
Cut out a couple of butterflies just to a variety.
After having done about a few dozens of them, decided to put away these cutters and tried some free-hand stuff. I remember seeing these in some magazines in MPH some time back. Recalled that they look vaguely like these.. but without having the image in front of me, I must say that these are really very crude models of what they should really have looked like. Ha Ha.. just like software applications.. these are definitely versions 1... have to wait for another day off to do versions 2.
You may have to use a little of your imaginations to picture in your mid what I really wanted them to look like..
If I didn't tell you that this is supposed to be a frog... would you have thought that it was a lizard.... buahahaha
Hoped that by putting 2 little flowers atop the lotus leaf made this frog look more like a frog... No?? ...sigh..back to the drawing board....
