the cheap, the cute and the practical

My cheap plastic shocking pink shoes. The price was incredibly cheap (unfortunately they're not very comfortable either) but every time I wear them they always make me feel like a little girl again. Is it the color or the polkadot bow that makes me feel like that? I think it's both, whatever it is, they are cute.

A cake for my niece's birthday. I have a secret Don't tell anyone that I didn't make the cake myself, I just decorate it with buttercream, sprinkles and fondant. After a few failed attempts to make a perfect cake, I just give up and buy one. At least the buttercream and the fondant figures were made by me. This is the practical one.

What I'm trying to say is, it doesn't cost much to make us feel happy. It's what inside your mind that counts.

“It isn’t what you have, or who you are,
or where you are, or what you are doing
that makes you happy or unhappy.
It is what you think about.”

Cupcake dihias teddy bear dari fondant.

fondant: untuk menghias kue, bahan dasarnya gula bubuk. Kadang-kadang disebut plastic icing. Dijual di toko bahan-bahan kue dalam bentuk seperti pasta warna putih. Bisa dibentuk-bentuk, diberi warna dengan mencampurkan langsung pewarna makanan ke dalam pasta fondant dan diuleni hingga warnanya tercampur rata. Karena berbahan dasar gula bubuk, rasanya manis dan bisa dimakan.
