This year end, I had been baking loads of macarons, believe me or not the word of macarons had been buzzing in my ear almost in the month of November and December. Even in January will be yet another macaron challenge for me, who would ever thought I would be given such a challenge, yes! I got to build macaron towers, two mini macaron towers requested by Didie and next a 2 feet tall macaron tower requested by Penny! such an intrigging challenge, it is a sure fun! :)

The World of Marzipan

It had been an honour to received this “Power of Schmooze”, a blogging community involvement award from such a famous food blogger, a food columist, a cooking instructor, a food photographer, a writer and also a wife with two little lovely and adorable kids, Jaden. And we, Big Boys Oven would like to thank you Jaden at Steamy Kitchen in Sarasota, Florida for given this award to us, thank you. Other recipients are Luna Pier Cook, Kirk, Wandering Chopsticks, 80 Breakfasts and Vanilla Garlic.

Schmoozing as defined by Dictonary.com is the ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.” When it comes to blogging, schmoozing is your ticket to making new friends, getting yourself noticed and building a reputation. Some bloggers are gifted with the ability to effectively schmooze and others not so much. To recognize those bloggers who exhibit strong schmoozing skills, the new Power of Schmooze award was created!

In this article that I am going to pen down, may not be new but it had been something really treasured in my heart for a long time and I decided to venture back this fantastic and exciting craft, Marzipan. In this mazipan world, not many people would like to venture as they really take time to be crafted and many had lost their patient. But for some who pursue and found this passion will able to tell you their story of their creation, how they able to bring a pieces of confection made of sugar and ground almonds to live. I would said the joy encountered whereby money could not buy.

For once I had mischeviously crafted myself with marzipan into marzipan……. hahahahaha…. it is me…. Sunny Yaw, the one pictured below. As everyone says, when you start any experimenting with something, you will do it to yourself first, and this is what I did…. me, mazipan Sunny Yaw in his chef uniform, looks young, innocent, yuppie and cute, ……lol.


With mazipan, I also created a pair of frog singing and celebrating with joy. They looks so lifely, joyful and cute.



I also created a little lion cub sitting alone looking for love and seeking for someone to cuddle or to be taken home……….



Lastly I crafted a pair of lovely piggy having fun and also trying hard to be very naughty………….

Here, I would like to express that the works of mazipan can be very time consuming and takes a lot of patient but the rewards are really overwhelming. To create something so lifely, so joyful and so wonderful can be very rewarding. I therefore would recommend this craft to you as it brings lots of joy into your life.

Love, Sunny Yaw
