Marzipan Fifi

I was planning on squeezing in some cardmaking this afternoon but this kind of took over. Maddie absolutely adores Fifi and the Flowertots and had asked me for a Fifi birthday cake for Thursday (3rd birthday). The last couple of years I've made the birthday cakes rather than buy as I just prefer it that way so this afternoon I have fashioned Fifi out of marzipan :o)

It was rather tricky (it's only the 3rd time I've made a figure) but lots of fun and she's turned out quite well considering hehe. I just need to make the actual cake and ice it etc ready for Fifi to go on top.














Marzipan coloured and ready for action














Hmm I didn't do a great job of taking photos as I went :o)



















Almost there now



















Just needs a finishing touch



















Voila!
