My First Cartoon Character Cake -- Spongebob

Sarah Ilyana , my second niece, turned ten in January but I could only give her her cake in Feb. After discussing with her mother, it was agreed that I would TRY and make a Spongebob cake. As always, reality always hit me after I agree to something... this time, I went "YIKES..... I dont even like that cartoon...and I have NEVER made a cartoon character cake out of fondant before...

But make the cake I must, especially after I have given her sister, Farah, those fantastic minicakes (thanks, Adlina again).. and so I tried. But first, my husband helped me by cutting the cake to size. I just needed to cover it in fondant in the appropriate colours and design.

Surprisingly, as I figured my way around the cake, I got more and more excited.. especially as I put the face together... the character seemed to jump out and say 'HI, its me.. Spongebob'. Actually got nods of approvals from the men and boys in the family.... my husband, my sons and newly adopted employee-turned-son.

The rewards came in Sarah's expressions... she went 'Eeeeeeee....' and shook her head. That's her typical reaction to great happiness... trust me... the feeling was ''WOW'' for me..

My Second Class

Second Class…..

Second class had a student coming all the back from Kluang – Anita. She was willing to travel so far just to learn… within a week, she was already making a small business out of selling the fruit tarts I taught her…. The feeling of achievement was great…. Teaching does has its rewards…

In this class, I had to conduct in both BM and Mandarin… there was one lady who didn’t understand BM… surprise…. surprise…

Anyway, ask the students to come up and try for themselves to mould the tart… after a few calls, only one came up…. Then slowly slowly about 5 to 6 of them came up to my table… the rest later came up but tengok tengok saja.

My assistant… my son, Afiq, tested the coconut tarts for doneness. He inserted the tester, turned around and said ok. Then he closed the oven door and left the tarts to continue baking …. Until someone reminded me about them… luckily they were just turning a nice brown and not burnt…. That’s Afiq lah….

Next Class…..

27th Feb 2010…. Puff Pastry --- demo on how to make puff pastry from scratch…
28th Feb 2010…..Durian --- Durian Fudge (guarantee best sekali) dan Durian Mousse.

See you there…..

Note : For now, I am teaching at HOI selayang… will teach at another place soon.. cannot announce yet..
