I was asked by a friend of mine to make a cake for her little girls 5th birthday. The brief I was given is that it had to be "unicorn". The birthday girl is just obsessed with unicorns.
As you all know I am on a bit of fondant binge at the minute and I went straight to youtube for a fondant unicorn tutorial... but there are none! So I opted to watch a few videos of fondant horse making and adapted a couple of them, in this what looked easiest type of montage, to make my little unicorn. Not the smoothest or most perfect unicorn you will ever see but I think she is adorable! And not too shabby for a first attempt!
Her name is Twinklekins and she was not harmed or eaten at the birthday party. The birthday girl has decided to "keep her forever"!
I think I am getting the hang of this fondant thing... but NOT the being back at work/life/social/extra curricular/blogging/baking/crafting it's less than 99 days to.... shhhh... Christmas... thing! So you will have to forgive how sporadic and non specific my blog posts are. I am also reading a lot of posts on your blogs, but not getting to comment... forgive me! I will get around to you all soon.
Hope you are all having a great Tuesday!
