Cake peek and blogging break

I am taking a short break from blogging , will be back in a month or so. In the next couple of weeks we will be packing our stuff and moving to the new house we bought, which thankfully is not so far away from where we are living now. Until I see you all again, take care and have fun !

Here is a cake I made two years ago, my first attempt to make a sugar bow. The bow is handmade out of sugar paste, trimmed with gold luster dust.

Archana, congrats on the new house! You must be very excited! Lots of luck with the move!

That sugar bow is mind-blowing. I find it hard to believe that it's not made from fabric! Is it edible? Or is it removed when you cut the cake?

Lovely Cake..Congrats on your new house!

Linda said...

Oh my goodness, Archana... if that is a "first attempt", you are really in the wrong line of work. How about your own cake decorating school??? Forget "decorating", how about cake art! Simply amazing!

Good luck moving, and wishing you all happiness in your new home :)

Hi
Archana

I have seen your blog many times. Your cakes are really amazing. Your decorating ideas are very good. Your blog inspired me a lot, which resulted in me creating a blog on cooking. And why don’t you post your cake recipes, especially your icing method and recipes. And did u go for any classes for cake decoration?

Hello Archana, What an amazing blog! You are indeed very talented. I cant wait for you to come aboard again and stir up more wonderful creations. I enjoyed myself just ogling your baking marvels. You are literally nudging (actually poking hard) to get off my b*&% and do a little practicing of fondant flowers myself. Thanks for sharing!
BTW .. I am not a blogger just a casual visitor from Kuwait who dropped in your side and couldnt get away until every word was read.
Get back soon.. will ya?

yummy yummy food for tummy said...

Archana...
U truly r a bakeogenius, cookogenius! photogenius etc ...all the genius's falling short to describe u!
I have to say that I do love all of your cakes,the lovely colour combi,the beautiful and intricate designing..the best detailing and bestest photography..plus resolving a puzzled mind which looks at the pics droolingly, thinking..how that must hv been made...wt simplifying narrations and tips with which u have done it! I hv to tell u that when i followed the links of Wilton decoration, i found that your work was much advanced and prettier than that shown by them!!!
u r truly W.O.N.D.E.R.F.U.L!!!
Best Regards,
PDM

Your cakes look so gorgeous!!! I wanted to ask you for a long time whether you took formal classes in cake decorations.I have recently started trying my hand in baking so wanted to know if all these decorations are do-able for a novice like me.There are some classes offered by local Michaels....so wanted to find out if they would benefit me.

archana said...

qa,
Wilton classes at Micheals are so helpful, those are the only ones i ever took. Wish you all the best. Do check out this website too

Anamika said...

Thanks Archana for visiting my blog site and leaving encouraging words. It helps one to do more. I like your website and the way you have categorized food. I must say, i have to learn recipes from you and make them here in Botswana. Lets keep in touch to share our experiences on food.
