About Me

My photo
Welcome to my small little world of sweet treats. Passionate about baking cakes, cupcakes, truffles and eating them too! Having being exposed to such wonderful home-made treats from a very young age, I hope to bring across my passion and love for baking and creating new recipes through this site. All in all, this will focus on fun as well as healthy baking, decorating and everything else creative (could include my love for painting/sketching as well, so I could divert a little from my blog's title :)). Thanks for visiting!

Some more additions to the Dora family!!

 Backpack and Swiper - a total of 3.5 hrs to make these, so not so bad!!

Swiper's whiskers are quite long...so I need to trim them!!

Now comes Dora!! It took me a total of 5 hrs and 45 minutes (yes I timed myself) to make her and get her to behave!! Her arm kept falling off and out of those almost 6 hrs, I spent two hours only in getting the right brown skin tone that she has!

I need to fix her eyes...have to clean them up.

 Overall, I am not disappointed with the way she turned out. I thought she was quite close...Or maybe, I'm going to redo her till I don't get it right!


  1. its good for a first attempt :)..so what hav u used here?clay?

  2. Thanks! it's not clay, it's fondant mixed in with a little gum-tex powder. Is this someone I know?

  3. she does look close to the actual Dora..............great work for doing everything by hand!!! but is she edible?
    cannot wait to see the whole cake.......:-)

  4. Yes Pooj...she's as edible as you'd like it to be...in other words, if you have a super sweet tooth, you would like to take a bite of it. I wouldn't, it's too sweet for me..Kids might like it..Thanks Pooj, I tried so hard to have her look like Dora...spent 2 hrs on just the skin color!
