More Adventures in Cake Decorating!

Yesterday was our neighbors’ other son’s birthday, so once again I made an Angry Birds cake. She wanted a simpler one this time, so I ditched the FBCT technique for good old-fashioned buttercream decorating.


Food and Biking

Teddy and I haven’t been up to too much exciting recently, other than eating, hanging out, and biking.


Adventures in Cake Decorating!

About a month ago, our new neighbor Angela asked me if I knew of a bakery that made character-themed cakes for children’s birthdays. I told her that unfortunately, I did not. About a week after that, she asked if I could make her son an Angry Birds cake for his birthday. I love anything arts and crafts related, so naturally I accepted the challenge! She really liked the looks of the fondant cakes, but I have very limited experience in fondant, and one of the cakes she liked had actually been created by another technique called Frozen Buttercream Transfer. After doing my research on the technique, I moved to the design phase!


Ichinomiya and Domannaka Matsuri

We’ve been busy biking around, hanging out, and having fun the past few weekends.


Hirokoji Summer Festival

Today, we biked down to Fushimi, had lunch, hung out, and watched the Hirokoji Summer Festival.


Visit From Miriam

Last weekend, our friend Miriam visited us. Miriam is also from Pittsburgh, and lives in Shiga Prefecture. She’s doing the JET Program.


Photo of the Day: Days 1-30

A group of our friends on Facebook decided to do a thirty day (which has now become an ongoing) photo challenge. One of the posters wanted the group to be made private, so I decided to share my first thirty days on my blog.
