One of my favorite aunts in the world is my Tita Belle. She’s always sweet, loving, warmhearted and fun. Back when I was little, I’d always get excited whenever we’d go visit Tita Belle – excited to see her, of course, but also excited to try her overly delicious banana cream pie! I’ve associated BCPs with Tita Belle ever since. 😀
Today, my beautiful Tita Belle celebrated her 57th birthday. I know that she’s really happy. Her all-time dream of having her own dairy farm has finally come true late last year. And I really must say her dairies’ milk is sooo yummy. And for some unknown reason, I like to drink the milk cold and raw. Somehow, I find it sweeter than when we’ve pasteurized the milk. Do you want to try some raw milk? I’ll give you a free glass! With Oreos! 😀
Anyway, I wanted to do something really special for my Tita Belle. I never tried this before but as they say, “If there’s a will, there’s a way!” And you can bet that I’m going to WILL myself through this! haha 😀
Here goes nothing. Here’s the idea, my concept of how the cake should look like.
Step One: Make Modeling Paste for the Cow.
I wasn’t able to take any photos while I was making it. I was hell-bent on getting the task done. It was, after all, my very first attempt. After letting the paste mature overnight, I started molding the cow. Looks okay to me. What do you think? Not bad for a first timer, right? RIGHT?! haha
Step Two: Make 2D Decos
This was my second time making such cuties. The first was the dolphin topper I made. This one has more details, more colors. It’s really quite a time-consuming task since I have to be extra careful with my piping, how thin or thick the icing is. It breaks easily too! My goodness is thing so delicate. But it’s really worth the effort. Look at the cowgirl. I really find the cowgirl cute! LOVE IT! 😀
