The cake enthusiast community in Ipoh had the pleasure of learning from visiting instructor, Liew Yoke Moy from Cake Art and Sugarcraft at a two-day Gum Paste Orchid class. Through the forum Malaysian Cake Decorators' Club (MCDC), created by Joanne Fam to facilitate learning and sharing of the joy of baking and decorating among the cake crazy community in Malaysia, we have created MCDC Ipoh, a link in Facebook to further connect and bring happening cake events our little peaceful (jamless) town, Ipoh which is 2 hours drive from KL.
This being the first event organised under MCDC Ipoh, we had it at my home. Yoke Moy was wearing a mask as she was having a slight flu the day before. After sleeping it off in KL, and making an early morning journey, here she is in Ipoh ready to start class immediately upon arrival. Enthusiastic teacher breeds equally enthusiastic students!
Day 1 consist of cutting, thinning and veining of petals.
Day 2, dried petals all ready to be dusted with petal dust.
Steaming to set the colours.
My 4 orchids!
Yoke Moy is willing to conduct similar classes again in Ipoh if there is a demand for it. Thanks to all my Wilton student who have attended...this is a highly recommended next step upon completion of Wilton Course 3. And also to Ling Tze, another fondant, gum paste player all the way from Penang.
