|Mommy & Baby D|
2 kind friends helped in my quest - one helped to bring back my number one cake pan and another helped to bring back the Sesame Street candles and cupcake rings. Thanks Andrew and Kenny.
I searched for my old Sesame Street character figurines, which I had bought some years ago as cake toppers for Ascensius' first birthday cake. Decided to use them to decorate Baby D's cake, instead of trying to make my own figurines.
The number one base cake is quite long and the shape is irregular. It would be my biggest challenge ever but I was up for it. All in all, it took me 4 nights to bake all the cakes and cupcakes and to complete the cake decorations. It was pretty hard work and I was glad to have the support of my hubby, whom even sat with me to roll out fondant and help me to cut the little stars! I think he has the potential to be a cake decorator! Hahahaha
At 12am the night before, I felt like I was racing against time. Progress was slow and I felt really tired! By 3am, I had to hit the sack and my back was breaking after sitting down for the last 5 hours. I was sure I would not be able to complete the cake and cupcakes, plus I would look like a big panda at the party! I felt sad.....
I prayed hard, I asked for help as I felt really stressed out. "Lord, please do not let my efforts go to waste, I have come so far! Please give me strength and peace to complete what I set out to do. In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen!"
I went to bed, had a good rest and started working again at 9am. By the grace of God, I was truly amazed. The huge white fondant piece covered the number one base cake totally! ^_^
The rest of the cake and cupcakes decorations were completed before 1pm! As the party was at 6pm, I even had a chance for a nap!
