I absolutely adore fondant (gum paste) work, or working with marzipan. Its great fun to make all your own decorations and an awesome way to express your creativity. Use food colouring or colour powders to give it some flair and pazzaz or to make a design that's been requested. I am a firm believer in bringing your children into the kitchen to bake with you. Its the perfect bonding time and really the best type of fun. I know I have said this before but I say it again. We lead busy lives and so do our kids, spending quality time with them is so very important because before you wipe your eyes out, Father Time has sped past and your babies are all grown up with kids of their own. At least they can now pass down the fun of baking and cooking with their little ones too; with the famous words, "this is how your crazy granny does it!" (Or grampa, dads :-D). So make the best of the time you have with them now.
I'm sending a slice of cake to Father Time but as Murphy would have it; that won't slow things down!
Love your kids with all your heart!
