ANIME LOVE

      This morning I woke up to a message from a friend telling me that TOKYOPOP had shared my Naruto cupcakes picture on their page! I feel like a kid on Christmas morning, it was such an awesome surprise! I love anime and TOKYOPOP, and got a friend addicted to Naruto which then…

“Let them have cupcakes…”

she said with a strange combination of indifference and concern. Cake is ALWAYS a good solution to any problem. Save for the odd one or two issues that it would act only to perpetuate the situation.

Wild lions I have known

So after a cupcake-free month, filled instead with determined Monanimal sewing, I have been asked to make African animal cupcakes for a christening… they left me with  loads of room for colours, and these are probably the brightest christening sweets I’ve ever seen!

Death of a Dream

ケーキはおいしいです!<3 ❤ ❤ It’s time for tea! Nothing better than something deliciously sweet… and cute of course! I made these cakes throughout 2007 for family and friends -ancient, I know – but as soon as I get back to my pretty home lands I’ll get right back to work on sculpting some more! Iitadakimasu!

The lands of little Mystery

Little Mystery Come see my pretty Mystery She plays in fields of coal Her eyes reciting melodies Imprinted in her soul She rests beneath the rain-kissed trees And paints on clouded skies While driftwood dreams, amidst the breeze Embark upon her sighs Be kind to little Mystery Whose mind dwells far away In search of…
