Happy New to all of you especially to my readers and those who supported me through rough and awesome time of my voyage ! All of you are truly fabulous. 2011 will be fabulous as there will be a lot of changes for good and better here at Big Boys Oven. We hope the 2011 direction that we are going to adopt will bring even more awesome goodies for you especially my readers, my students and my clients
2010 was an awesome year for us at Big Boys Oven even days towards the count down I was still baking and sculpturing cakes. I couldn’t believe myself every second was filled with work related activity. Here at Big Boys Oven, we had been put to test in all area, even baking a 25kg wedding cake, endless macaron marathons, engaging new talents to work with us . . . . . . I got to say it was truly fabulous.
So much happens. having my new facebook Big Boys Oven by Sunny Yaw was truly exciting. Most of my bakes are featured at my facebook. The word busy had now become a norm to me. My diary is already booked for January, Febuary & March 2011 for wedding cakes sculpture. I am so honoured too as my baking classes had prepaid bookings this 2011. Thank you so much in trusting me. I think 2011 will be truly exciting indeed! I think a big project is on the pipeline and will let you know once ready!
My latest work was this specially designed and sculptured engagement cake for Juliana Umar. This time I had the cake covered with handmade light grey fondant, the weather was good and the fondant worked perfectly. Definitely you do not want to have any disaster fondant.
Then I had my fondant roses spray painted with silver and set them aside to dry. Using my hand piping technique with royal icing, I created a darker grey 3D flowers and leafs effect surrounding the cake itself leaving some empty space at the middle.
Once completely dry. I then had the fondant flowers arranged in the middle. Perfect!
Verdict: Juliana Umar was awesomely disbelieve the cake that I had sculptured. She was speechless! Congrats Juliana Umar, especially your engagement day today!
