Okay, the title of the blog post has nothing to do with the cake design :p. I have so many "back log" due to delay in posting up the cakes and I still have this CNY theme cake that I really must post :). So put the even older cake post on waiting list first :)
This was a cake ordered by Koe Gee as a CNY gift to her parents. So the snake (guy) and cow (lady) represents the zodiac of her mum and dad. The frames were there to mimic the parents glasses.
So here they are, surrounded with mandarin oranges (I still have some at home! Must make juice out of them... anyways.) and gold ingot (non edible).
Koe Gee also wanted a CNY greeting on "red paper" and due to space constraints, I suggested to have just one sentence.
