Jared has his very first academic exam on Monday, 10 May 2010. The exam timetable and reading material instructions came in 2 A4 pages long.
Hubby and I are not sure if Jared understands the importance of this exam but we were a little worked out by this exam. Hubby did revision with Jared on his non-Chinese subjects in the morning before Jared goes to school and I will do revision with Jared on his Chinese subjects in the evening when I returned from work. Jared is not used to study or do so much revision in a day.
I hope Jared will be able to understand the questions and answer them well. We are concern that he may make careless mistakes, as he always do.
I used to tell my sister not to be so worked out by her kids examination (as our parents did not and had no time to worry about our exams) and now, we have to be reminded that this is only his 1st exam and there will be more exams to come and he is only in Standard One.

I always love cute cupcakes and to make figurines or models require fondant or gum paste. However, I do not like the hard and sweet taste of fondant. But I can't resist the cute figurines either. I have been browsing websites of baking and culinary school and registered with them so as I'm notified of their classes.
On 20 Apr, I received an email from Cake Connection on its May 2010 classes and I saw this "Animal Fondant Cupcakes" class and the picture of animals figurines which were so cute and I registered for the class.
There were a list of things that we have to bring to the class. As I am a first timer to fondant cupcakes, I need to buy 7 items out of the 10 items to bring to the class. Hubby was very nice to drop by House of Ingredients which is located near our house and bought a 2.5 cm round cutter (RM3.90), modelling tool set (RM29.90) and Flower Blossom (RM14.50). I bought Wilton 9" rolling pin from Cake Connection itself (RM39.90).
Side view ... just a cute.
Back view ... even cuter, especially the tails.
Giraffe ... this is the last and most tedious and detail figurine to create.
