First MMF Girl Figure

This figure is somewhat sneak peek of what I will be making in the next few days. Its "purely" MMF a.k.a. Marshmallow Fondant, I am a bit comfortable with the medium so I gave it a try. During the creating process of this figure I was nostalgic about those childhood memories I have of molding clays, it made me smile. I am not 100% satisfied with the result but I am happy that I am able to construct something that is recognizable - a girl. My husband thinks she looks like one of the stepsisters from Cinderella (: The skirt is actually cupcake covered in MMF too. My inspiration came from one of Debbie Brown's books - Enchanted Cakes for Children. This book is perfect for cake enthusiasts, its awe-inspiring.

In the next few days I will start my latest cake project, the most challenging one yet. Since I am usually uneasy before a cake project, the creation of this figure helped me in dealing with the tension. It made me realize that I will be making this for real, so no more second thoughts.

This video cannot be in my YouTube Channel ,being skeptical if its YT worthy its posted in private. So I made a poll, I will decide once my latest cake creation video is available if it should be in YT. Feel free to vote, I would really appreciate it. Enjoy!
