Made this cake for my daughter's piano teacher for teacher's day celebration. Initially plan to make it only next Thursday and intended to make the piano using fondant. However, baking mood just strike on me.... due to last minute change of decision and if I were to make the piano with fondant, it will definately not dry within one day, so I make it with styrofoam instead. Lucky I have my daughter to help me with the detailed of a grand piano. She really helps me a lot to produce this final product, thank you ZR for your helps.

This is my first time using royal icing, not as difficult as I thought. I made the butterflies wings and let them dry overnight. The next day I make the body and attached the wings to it. The following day, I got all these butterflies done, pretty easy. In this cake, I only wanted white, yellow and green, hence came out with white fondant flowers to go with it.

Knowing my son loves dragon and his birthday is getting closer, I tried to make it using fondant. Have attempted several times making dragon / dragon character in the book titled 'Eldest' and I failed all. Thinking that this round I'll pass (have yet to make its' body) but I'm wrong.... Guess I'm just not cut to make dragon, it's too tough for me.

These penguins were done sometime back with the help of my children and hubby (thanks for their inputs and patient with me). One of my favourite figurines but didn't get the chance to put them on cake. One of this day I'll make them again and will let them be where they are supposed to be (either with an igloo or ....).
