In our younger days, the grandmother story was that if you peeped at someone of the opposite sex peeing, you will get a stye
Anyway, this unexpected leave gave me time to made a batch of sugar paste. I have been so inspired by Glad, my friend from Kitchencapers (a cooking forum), who makes the most fantastic creation out of sugar paste (fondant). She is really good with her fingers and she is so creative.
After a bit of 'long-distance' coaching from her, I decided to try some on my own. After mixing the sugar paste, you have to leave it to 'develop' overnight so that the paste is more mallaeble. Me, being the kancheong spider, just could not wait. With whatever paste that was left on the table and scraper, I created my first sugar craft figurines.
Here is my sugar baby girl sleepy snugly under her blanket and a cherry blossom.
And here is Ratbit with his swiss cheese. This was supposed to be a rat but in the end, it turned out looking more like a rabbit. This is what happens when you try cross-breeding a rat and a rabbit. Hmmph..
Now I cannot wait for the rest of the paste to be ready.
