About Me

My photo
I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

Fondant Roses

Made fondant roses and flowers for the cake for the anniversary party this weekend. I am not good at the icing roses, so I usually sculpt them from fondant. These are tinted rose and yellow and coated with pearl dust in pink and gold. I have full roses, rosebuds and cut-out daisy-like flowers. I also have green leaves. When I ice and decorate, these will be placed on top with icing vines and additional leaves. I will post a photo of the completed cake on Saturday.

No sewing today, maybe tonight after kids are all bathed and in bed. Gotta finish the dress...
