Bees-Z Garden

Last month, two of my colleagues and I had to do some course assignments jointly. As another colleague, LJ, is better in English, we "arrowed" her to do the consolidation for us. She obliged despite her busy schedule. In the end, the two reports (part 1 & part 2) were very beautifully crafted and presented, all thanks to her! I meant, we did our parts too, but she had to put in more effort to ensure that the parts gelled well.

In order to show my appreciation, I've decided to bake a cake, and had it decorated in fondant for her. Well, it was a long over-due token of appreciation. But then, it's better to be late than never!

This "Bees-Z Garden" consists of three bees- LJ, SC (another colleague) and myself. I used the marble pound cake as the base cake, crumb coat it with buttercream and covered them with rolled fondant. I made it into a garden of bees because it reflected that we are as diligent as bees! Heehee... We had to do our report outside our working time, during weekends or weeknights. "Beauty Bee" represents LJ, who has eye shadow on her eyes. Heehee... The four flowers actually represented that she is most diligent.



"Bonny Bee" is SC. She is working on a three-flowers branch. As for moi, "I" was just moving towards a two-flowers branch. Slow & steady is what I represent myself! "LOL" I hope LJ likes this theme and the cake.
