"Angry Bird Fondant Cake 翻糖蛋糕"

循语今年六岁。K2 幼稚圆,明年就上小学了。为了让她在幼稚圆个美好回忆,特地为她做了个蛋糕让她在学校庆祝。此翻糖蛋糕瞒花时间完成。我先在她生日前个周末做好所有的公仔待用。第一次做翻糖蛋糕,抱着玩玩的心态,打算如果做不成,就做个巧克力蛋糕当后备。想不到成果还想当满意。

Shey-Nell turning 6 years old now. She is study at K2 kindergarden and going to enter primary school next year. I'm trying to make her have a memorable birthday during her kindergarden. Therefore, I decided to make her a special cake to celebrate at school. This fondant cake spent me quite some times to complete it. I prepare the Nagry bird doll a weekend earlier before the the cake making day. This is my first time playing with fondant cake. My backup plan is to make a chocolate cake for her in case I failed. Who know the result still satifying.

      it till the dough does not stick to the hand.

           more firm to avoid the cake sink. I'm using chocolate butter cake for
