My first fondant figures. I used books by Ann Pickard, she is a UK sugar artist, and wonderful demonstrator. The girl cake is BC with chocolate seashells with plumeria and BC leaves. The open spaces on the cakes are for the candles. The palmtrees are made with a large bamboo skewer shaped in marzipan, then wrapped with brown gumpaste. The surfboard is done in gumpaste with fondant accents and the turtle and flip flops are fondant. Huge thanks to the ladies in the CC galleries for their inspiration!
