Fashion to Icing Cake Designs

It was just another weekend roaming in town where I look for inspiration. I saw this dress which I had captured through my lense at the Art & Craft Centre when I was visiting the Malaysia Tourism Centre along Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur. The colours were so soft, vibrant, elegant and such a unique combination. It was a modern flora batik design and crafted into an elegant evening dress. The colours somehow had embedded deep in my head and it was so strong that I decided to transfer them into my crafted icing cake.



Truely, it is fun to create something so inspiring when you never know what you can stumble upon.

Love, Sunny Yaw

    Hi Sunny & Sidney, thanks so much for gracing my blog with your presence. It is truly appreciated. I hope that you’ll return to visit whenever you have the time to spare.

    In terms of drying the okras in the sun. Since growing up, I would see my mom always slice the okra and place it in the sun so that the absorb could be absored before sauteeing it. It would be in the sun between 1 – 3 hours only only left. That way, it was never slimy. Also, she added the salt towards the end of the dish finish cooking that way, it did not yield any moisture to cause it to get slimy.

    Please let me know if you have any further questions.
