After a lot of persuading and support, he left Bread Story in July 2007 and joined Big Boys Oven. He is also one of the co-founders of Big Boys Oven.

Boxes of Gifts

It had been ages that I had decorated a cake. I would say the last one was around 12years ago when I took up my first job at Sunflower as an apprentice. It was fun as everything was new to me. I was the young and innocent. I do say what I learned is something that money can’t buy. Anyway, I came across this book written by Jane Price, the home guide to cake decorating had really caught my eye. The fondest picture of boxes of gifts on the book cover had flashed down my fondest memory lane.

So without wasting any energy and time, I whisked up some sugarpaste, baked some buttercake and start creating. This centrepiece is surprisingly easy to make. Below is my version of Jane Price’s “Boxes of Gifts”.

I guess I did well after such an absent from cake decorating. I hope you will like it.

With Luv, Sunny Yaw
