It was a Thursday well spent. Sarah (whose exciting new blog is coming soon) & I went and enjoyed the last days of Yoko Ono's exhibition at the MCA. Below, I share through photographs, while Sarah shares with words the thoughts and experiences both of us faced that day after catching fragments of Ono's life.
When I told a friend I had just visited Yoko Ono’s exhibition, she said, “Oh right, that chick... John Lennon’s...”

Hello! Excuse the poor finishings & alignments in the cakes below. It wont happen again! I have ordered some great tools from Wilton & hope to perfect my fondant work very very soon. Speaking of fondant, I usually hate the taste of it. Even after countless events and multiple wedding cakes I re-attempt at eating it, hoping for a difference. Although, I still manage to get let down by the over sweet sugary plastic texture. Every time.
Of course I don't want my customers to experience the same thing from me. Neither do I want them to experience store bought fondant from the big brands. No matter how expensive & branded it is - it tastes ridiculous. So i went ahead and discovered the other kind, the marshmallow fondant (cheering). I was so overly excited by the outcome that my enthusiasm started to make me feel exhausted. I couldn't express in words how tasty and creamy marshmallow fondant could be - so i stood there in front of my mum & made distorted expressions with my mouth, nose, eyes and brows to convey the message.
Its the same amount of over sweetness like the common kind, BUT it doesn't just taste like plastic in disguised as sugar. It tastes like the real thing - MARSHMALLOWS! It may not seem like a big deal, but going from nothing to something is always great. You would rather chew on marshmallow than plain sugar, right? Right? YES. So I'm going to share this recipe, its brilliant & easy! Find the recipe at the end of this post & those who attempt it, thank me later (...with promotions hehe).
