Our Fondant Kebaya class which coincided with Mother's day (on the next day) was attended by 5 beautiful and doting daughters - Azza, Izzati Lau, Marina, Mustari and Salasiah. Azza chosed a light lavender color, Izzati chosed golden yellow, Marina chosed purple, Mustari chosed baby pink and Salasiah chosed a vibrant red for their kebaya cakes. They took the opportunity to attend this class so that they can present the cakes to their respective mothers on Mother's day(Sunday). The cakes used were rich moist chocolate cakes.
The ladies were given templates for the kebaya and specially made cutters for the scalloped lace pattern. Actually the FMM Straight Frills cutter is used to cut out the scallop lace pattern on the collar, slevees and edges of the cake. But due to high demand for this product, it is not in stock now. I have checked with ICCA and Cake Connection but they are out of stock for this particular pattern. So as they say neccesity is the mother of all creations, i took the liberty to get my iron monger to make the scalloped lace pattern cutters. It did not cost me much to make my own cutters so i gave each student a set of cutter free of charge so that they can make their own fondant kebaya cake in future. Moreover they dont't have to spend much to buy the FMM cutters. I hope to make more different cutters and give to my students who attend our classes. Meanwhile enjoy the pictures of the Fondant Kebaya cakes that my students made. One thing i have to mention here, these five ladies are really super talented as they decorated their cakes with minimum supervision from me. In fact Mustari, who is a succesful business woman said that decorating her cake was therapeutic as it was a way of letting out her stress from her hectic life.
