Whirlpool MSA sugarpaste course

Here's my final wedding cake circus. It's quite colorful because we actually montaged everything we did beforehand on it. Yet i like it as a colorful bouquet. I don't wanna talk about the bride and the groom:D So hard the face part. But there are some ugly couples too, right?:D

It IS a hard job. Think twice when you ask for flowers but don't wanna pay much, it takes lots and lots of time, and patience. Some you prepare petal by petal, especially the lilium, i wouldn't make under $30 or something:D

A sad fact here is, in Istanbul: you have a price of slice, and you get paid by that. So it's a no flower, or all flower, you cannot change the price that much. It's a waste of hard-work. In the states, though, you get your cake for a certain price - probably lower than ours-, then any other decoration you wanna have on, each has its own price... Time for a revolution:D

2nd and 3rd Day

On the second day we continued on animals and today went onto cartoon characters, where it started going downwards. A suggestion: Never accept a Mickey mouse order!! Because on very specificly defined characters like, the slightest mistake makes it look real cheap and ugly. You don't have the elasticity like you do with other characters, because everybody knows what Tweety or Pooh exactly looks like. So everyone, including the ones who lack even a tad of knowledge or talent on art, will come up and claim you did a bad job.
Anyways, after a thorough explanation, here's my ugly ugly ugly Mickey Mouse (yet it was the best in class- no room for modesty) and a slightly better looking Pooh:)

And the others are my sweet little bunny, dinosaur and swan from the other day...
