These sleeping gumpaste babies were made as a caketopper for an upcoming cake. I worked on sculpting these 2 babies for a few months, everytime I made the faces they would look like little aliens and I felt as if I would never be able to get the faces correct. I had been wanting to finally get these faces right instead of creating my very own baby aliens although there is nothing wrong with a cake showcasing baby aliens. Finally one day when I least expected I finally started to see a baby face emerge as I was sculpting and these 2 little babies are what I ended up with, I have yet to attempt making these kind of babies again but I know I will have to give it another try in the future. And I will end up with faces that are completely different from these two. I must say it was worth the time it took to finally come up with sculpted babies to add to my cakes, I am so glad I tried, because if I would not have tried I would have never realized that I could do it.
If there is something you have been wanting to learn in cake decorating but are afraid it will not work for you, or that you just don’t know how to do it, make the decision that you will do it regardless of how you feel. If you don’t try you will never know the abilities that are waiting deep inside you just yearning to get out, and when it does it will surprise even you, there may even be a time when you will think to yourself, wow, I did that. That will be one of those moments in life that you will never forget and once you master that particular thing there will be another around the corner tapping on the door of your creativity urging you to step out and try something else that is new to you.
So make it a point to try something new this week that you have never tried it will be worth trying in the long run. Good luck and Happy Creating!!!
