There were quite a number of stills from the movie on the web, but most were blurry, so i tried my best with what i could get off Google. ah. how decadent.
the pink i mixed was a little more 'peach' in real life, then again it was almost evening when i took these photos. i don't have much rococo or french type scrapbook papers, so i picked one closes to the wallpaper colours in the movie photo. ooo i am really liking this photoshoot :O
since the topping on this 3-tier beauty was a St Honore, i'd suggested to my customer that it be a removeable one, for versatility. i'd forgotten to place a prop for scale, so here are my fat fingers again XD if you were wondering how large this cake is, it's approx 5inches wide at the base. i think this might be the largest 'mini' i've ever made! C:
I did likewise on the simpler rose petal cake.
the white St Honore certainly does stand out on it :O
She'd also requested some strawberry eclairs, instead of the raspberry pairing that I had previously made. the raspberry went onto a pastry similar to the religieuse, but just 1-layer, more commonly known as "Nipple of Venus" where my customer is from. if you do decide to google for the term, please ensure that your SafeSearch is ON if you're at the office XD or if you have kids sharing the computer :P
i tried my best to photograph them (there are 3) but no matter how i arranged, my gutterbrain still registered something more sexy :P
MOVING ALONG! ;P ;P ;P
i tried but couldn't seem to take a good photo of the 'seeds' on the strawberries! This variation of the strawberry eclair was also off an image I found online:

i was pleasantly surprised to find out that it was from a local bakery! I really loved the caramel sea-salt macarons that they used to have, but i'd not enjoyed any macaron since i found out that they will no longer sell that flavour (or so i'd been told when i enquired) as it was a special seasonal promotion item :( :( :( :(
ah well. am on a perpetual diet anyway. :P
getting ready to be packed and sent to Russia! :D
some arty-farty shots i tried to take....with the evening sunlight -_-"
lol the rose petals kept flying all over the place with the window open XD
i want to some day write a 'fake food' book or magazine :E :E
i can dream, can't i?
(oh man, i'm feeling so self-conscious and embarrassed for even playing with the photo my cheeks are burninggggg......*blush*)
i do want to try making this in 1:12, but piping in any scale is difficult as it is! so maybe another time, this venture bunched my my shoulder and hands, luckily bf is always around and quick to help me massage the pains away.............i'll be taking it easy before i move on to my next commission :)
meanwhile, i was really surprised by the number of entries to my giveaway!!! wow i had an inkling as to the number of regular readers i have, but my comments had always been few (maybe cos i'm lousy at replying T-T), so thank you all for participating and for all the nice (and SUPER FUNNY omg i sometimes had to stop taking a swig of my drink so i wouldn't spray on my monitor) comments!! i do have to remind all who participated that i can only accept valid entries, multiple replies in one comment only entitles you to one entry...this is to be fair to those who have entered correctly :( I understand that this might be due to a language difference, but i'm so sorry i don't know how to phrase it or explain it better :(
I will be preparing some Christmas printables and boxes, so watch out for those on my Etsy ^ ^
Have a super week ahead!
