Busy, busy busy here at Poppy Mallow, just like I like it - I was able to sneak a few minutes to take some pictures of the hockey-themed dozen I was working on today though. Apologies for the bad lighting

They're not supposed to be but I think the pucks are so cute - they're made out of chocolate fondant. The sticks are painted with gel colour - I learned very quickly that a hockey stick has a distinct proportion - if you get it wrong it just looks like a funny twig thing.

In real life they were vanilla and strawberry buttercream and the red was red not an orangey colour. I don't mean to toot my own horn but the strawberry buttercream is deee-licious - I bumped up the strawberry content so much I was nervous that the buttercream base had been pushed to it's limits and would separate into a hideous clumpy mess, but she held. Proud of her.

  1. I love those little pucks - how sweet (pun intended)!
