Personally I stepped into this cake decorating class with perfect ZERO in skill and knowledge of its utensils. What we learnt from Anis was not just the individual techniques but hands-on to all step by step and ways of handing and forming this delicate icing to each concepts, techniques and its applications. Huh, loads of informative input to me as begimner...

The hardest one for me is fondant. Anis had prepared plain fondant, yet I still had hard time kneading and handling that sticky sugary dough. Maziah came out first with her apple green colour of choice and Wan Mahani chosen baby blue. I had later found out they matched up to the color of shirt they'we wearing...ha ha ha...

Here we go with the" Three Sisters Fondant".

Wan Mahani's lovely girlish baby blue fondant with her white skirting and scallops and pink dots. It goes very well with her pink roses. Mine in the middle, a simply pink squared and white ribbon with one tone plied string footing. Maziah came out gorgeous in green. I like her drape! We suppose to have four, but Zana has to depart earlier due to emergencies...we tought of her along the way, take care Zana...
Here is the close-up.
