Wedding Favours

My sister-in-law had a fabulous wedding last Saturday. Before the big day, she handmade a few items for the wedding herself including a lovely two-tier ang pao box that looks like a wedding cake, and the sleeves to slot in polaroid shots with the guests which are then given to them as gifts.

The wedding favours are small fruit cakes covered with rolled fondant and decorated with some sugar paste flowers which I helped to prepare. I thought that the preparation process shouldn't be too difficult since the cakes were taken from a relative's bakery shop, and all I need to do is to decorate them. But little did I know that the whole process was so time-consuming. It took me two days to make those small sugar paste flowers, and another day to make the rolled fondant and to paste the flowers on the cakes. On top of that, I took another two days to make the boxes, load the cakes in it, and finally tied the boxes with ribbons. I was very worried that I couldn't make it in time but I'm glad that I managed to do it.. phew!

Hi, just love your mini cake favours. Do you mind sharing your recipe? Did you use ready made fondant or did you make up a batch yourself?

Hi Vivian,

I've got the cakes from a relative's bakery but I made the fondant and sugar paste myself. Pls send me your email address and I'll send the recipe of fondant to you.

Btw, thanks for dropping by! :-)
