Fruit Box Cake - Handi Mulyana - Handi's Cakes

Topsy Turvy Fruit Cake


My Bucket List Tick..... 
So I have wanted to do a Cake Decorating Class with 
Handi Mulyana of Handi's Cakes
for the longest time now. 


I finally got the opportunity when he came to Canberra in August 2014.  
With thanks to Latorta ( www.latorta.com.au ) for Hosting him 
and Helena and the staff for all there amazing preparation for the day.
The Cake created was the Fruit Box Topsy Turvy.


There where so many learning outcomes.  
Given that I have never done a class before and am completely self taught 
with my cake decorating I had much to learn.


 I got to work with Modelling Chocolate, Molding, Airbrushing, Painting, 
Creating a Topsy Turvy Support Structure and so much more.


THE YUMMY FRUIT!




FRUIT BOX DISPLAY!


THE REFRESHING JUICE DRINK!



TOPSY TURVY!


And the Finished Product.


I think Handi needs to come and visit Canberra again very soon to teach another class.  
Maybe not when the temperatures are at -5 degrees however.

Thanks Handi.

My friend Lisa recently celebrated her 40th Birthday by having a Dress Up Party.
The theme for the night was come as a famous couple.
