And now for the down side :( yup, everything has a good side & a down side. I was also trying to achieve something I thought would be hard & yet easy, if you know what I mean :) I was using the eyelet mould to try to make some holey effect, if you see the FIRST picture above, you can see what I mean. I knew it was going to be hard to achieve same & that probably can't be attempted just by one attempt. I have always used Gum Paste as a medium for my decor which, of course I made myself after attending for the class many years ago. I decided to use store bought Fondant & I bought the product from Cake Connection & saw at the back of the package that it was a product of NZ, I was happy. I rolled it slightly too thin. Thought that the bows would look more dainty but I forgot to take into account that the holes would sag slightly when I place it in the rolling pin. So I had temporarily happiness when I saw how beautiful the holes made the Bow; like a see through effect; but my happiness was temporarily as after I hung it on the long wooden rolling pin to dry; it fell down, oooh nooooo!!! But it doesn't matter because going to doing it again, roll it slightly more thicker, most probably tonight & then it will be a battle of the wills between Mr Holey & me.
Till my next post, xoxo, Ophelia
