Happy Clowns Cake


After a week of hard work, I can finally show you what I was working on. It's a birthday cake I made for my friends' son who turned 2 yesterday. A funny little fellow who likes to entertain his friends, and therefore my choice - a cake with clowns.
I'm still a beginner when gumpaste and Marshmallow fondant are concerned, but I'm learning. There are things you don't realise until you start working with these and sometimes things that seem so easy when reading about them become difficult or problematic once you put your hands on them.
So forgive me all the imperfections (and there are quite a few), because I certainly hope to improve with time and learn from my mistakes. I want to say a big THANK YOU to DD from DDpie's Slice for being so helpful and supportive with me. Everything I know about decorating cakes with MMF and making gumpaste objects, I've learned from her and reading her blog. It's not easy trying to teach or learn something at such a distance. And I've never seen or touched any other MMF or Gumpaste except the ones I made. So, who knows if I'm making them right.
This post is just for me to show off a little bit ('cause I am proud of myself indeed), I'll be talking about how I made the cake and all the little details in (hopefully) near future.
Have a nice Sunday, everyone.



ALLEGRI CLOWN

Ed eccola, la mia seconda torta realizzata con il Marshmallow Fondant (l'MMF) e le figurine di Gumpaste (pasta di zucchero).
Una settimana di lavoro che davvero ripaga quando si vedono le faccine felici dei bambini e si sentono tanti "Wow" dalle bocche dei grandi.
Ringrazio la mia amica Simona, che mi ha dato l'opportunità di fare questa torta per il compleanno del suo cucciolo che ieri ha compiuto due anni. Un bellissimo e buffissimo ometto che adora divertire i suoi amici, e per questo ho scelto per lui il tema dei pagliacci.
Buon compleanno Lolò!




TORTA S VESELIM KLAUNIMA

Uspjela sam! Učim, griješim, ispravljam pogreške, ali iznad svega napredujem. Rad s fondantom od marshmallowa nije lak, ali samo se vježbom može ići naprijed. Stoga, pokušavam, griješim i učim.
Nadam se da vam se sviđa ova torta s veselim klaunima koju sam napravila za rođendan klinca mojih prijatelja koji je jučer napunio dvije godine.
Zasad samo slike, poslije ću se vratiti na tortu i kako sam je napravila, kao i sve detalje.
