YoYo Clown Dolls

I made one of these for each of my daughters.  The first one, I made before she was born and we didn't know the Gender.



Since I am not very fond of non-gender colors for babies, I waited until the baby was born before I made her clown.

This baby took her time and was about 14 years behind her sister.  We knew she was a going to be a girl.

I am writing up this pattern and hope to have it available in the future.

Christmas Cake





This is my very first attempt at a Fondant cake. I used homemade MMF and homemade Gum Paste for the Star Tree. Glued the stars together with Royal Icing, brushed it with a little water and sprinkled sparkling sugar over all.

I made this for Christmas 2012, and am only now remembering to post pictures.
