Dear diary: Marsipan decoration galore!

NaghmnlösI’m so tired right now, because the last two days I’ve been working non-stop making decoration for a huge 6ft long canoe cake with a Hawaii theme. We we’re supposed to be three people on this cake, one sculpting the actual cake and the other two making the decoration. But the third person was sick so I had to make decoration for two.
Thursday I only had a 30 min pause (which was lunch) and yesterday I didn’t got a break until the cake was all done.

I made so many marsipan fruits that I now never will make another one ever again! So many bananas, oranges, clementines, limes, lemons and dragon fruits, my own creation ♥
I also made hibiscus inspired flowers to really give a true Hawaii feel to the cake.
It was a lot of hard work, but the end result was amazing (especially considering we were only two people working on it) and everyone was very impressed with it, so I’m happy 🙂

Behind the Doors – Tsum Tsum Villian’s challenge

eventNovembers Tsum Tsum event is here, and it’s all about beating the badies!
We get the typical map with missions one must clear if any progress can happen. Here we have three different doors villians to beat. The red one, with the Evil Queen, is the easiest one out of them and then the purple (with Ursula) is harder while the green (with Dragon Maleficent) has the hardest missions.
If you play with the Snow White (red), Ariel (purple) or Aurora (green) tsum tsums you get an extra bonus as a help in trying to finish the mission.

I used Snow White basically for every mission behind the red door, and since Ariel is one of my favorite tsums to play with so I als used her a lot. But Aurora didn’t do anything for me, don’t know if here skill level is just to low or because she has the hardest missions, but either way her skill doesn’t adds up to the missions. I think I only used her for 2 missions (including the one where beating Dragon Maleficent).

Anyway, this one was fun but a bit to short for my taste. Like I finished every mission in 3 days, even then spending a lot of my time at lessons in school and didn’t buy any extra hearts. Bit of a bumer really, I had hoped for a longer event. So not one of my top 3 favorite events I can tell you that.

Review: Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

imageThe Lunar Chronicles is one of my favorite book series, and any new story from this universe is like a treat. It would give more depths to the characters and making me understand them better. Well, or so I thought when I began reading Stars Above… (more…)
