Yesterday was my first visit to Home Cake. I went in for sugar flowers, came out with a plan involving fondant butterflies. All of the Seattle blogs that marvel at that place are not kidding. It's like a magical baking junk shop, from back before junk shops became "antique malls."
When I got home, though, I decided to wait on the fondant & make the tiny tortillas instead. We have a Mexican food tradition at my Cinco de Mayo baby's birthday parties (which also gives us a good excuse to stand around drinking sangria while watching the kids play), but of course this year all the food has to be miniaturized. For fairies.
And then I had to take a few moments with the last of the light to try a shot through my second TTV camera, which arrived yesterday afternoon. As soon as I get out from under this party, I am working on my TTV setup so that I can do something besides plant myself & awkward camera situation on the front porch in order to take pictures of the sky across the street. I do like those wires, though.
Anyway, then I made some fairy heads. I couldn't resist this Klutz book, but since the girls are too small to manage the fiddly bits, I am pre-assembling the bodies & heads, then we'll put them together & add faces & flower skirts at the party. I am not even kidding myself about this part: I hope that the girls will love the project, but it's mostly an excuse for me to set up a satisfyingly tiny & fussy assembly line.
Speaking of tiny & fussy! Today: fondant!
