I did the most difficult first. Minnie. She was sculptured from styrofoam and covered with sugar paste. Minnie is a celebrity and every child in the world knows her so a little bit out and she will look different so I had to do way in advance for the just-in-case I need to re-do. Having said that I had to re-do her eyes three times!!!!!

For the little shoes I got the template from Deborah Hwang and change it slightly to a pair of baby boots from her Converse. They look deceivingly difficult but it was easy. I love making them. Then I added Minnie to the back using Minnie cookie cutter and paint over it.

Next are the 'presents' which I loosely wrap with fondant to give them a softer look. BTW not all 'presents' are cake. The real ones are pandan butter cake.
