So I'm a former savory/pastry chef/ cake artist. I've ALWAYS been super tactile. I LOVE working with fondant and gumpaste though I don't get to do it nearly as much as I used to now that I'm a fulltime mom. It's a really fun easy thing to try. I highly recommend that you do. If you have a Michaels or Joanns near you then you can at least try it out. Buy a small box of premade fondant, a small fourpack of gel color and play! If you have any questions PLEASE feel free to ask. I love showing people that they're just as capable if not moreso than some professionals. In fact I inspired a classmate from highschool and helped her to open her own cake shop in our hometown! Give it a try I bet you're pleasantly surprised!

Here are a few of my pieces

Wow, now that's talent! I'd be good at eating them, but that's about it!
You seriously need some slate feet and copper hackles on those chooks!

Those are gorgeous! You are a natural, but I'm sure you also practiced a lot to get to that skill level!

Indeed! It does take practice but it's SUPER fun! I've always kind of been geeky in the art realm. I also am a henna artist in my spare time.
