Easter Basket With A Bunny Of Fruits

>>  4/12/2014


Would you love to have a pair of the long pink ears pop up at your Easter table? I have ones made from fruits. It's an Easter Bunny sitting in the Easter basket with eggs.

The Bunny is made from the yellow apples and a pear.  It's a very easy fruit craft so you can invite your children to help with it.

Gold Carps, Lotus and Water Symbols

This fruit display was designed for a 60th anniversary of a Korean man. I decorated the display with lotus and gold carp sculptures which are the powerful symbols in asian culture. The wavy pattern in the watermelon is the water element. It unites all decorations in one display with a deep meaning.

Korean Traditions in Sakhalin Island

In my previous post I wrote a little about birthday traditions.
60 year old birthday is a very important date for asian people. It's a big event with lot of guests.

I am sharing few photos of a head table. Traditionally it should be decorated in rich and bright ways, with pyramids of food and sweets.
In the begining of the event a big korean family take photographs at the table. Later the treats will be given away to the guests.

Sweet Tower With Berries

>>  4/04/2014


Dear Reader,

In my blog you have seen different types of towers made of fruits, macaronies and sweets. 

My latest tower creation is a mix of fruits and baking. To be precise it is a mix of berries and baking.
This tower looks like a real cake garnished with different berries. The largest berry in here is a watermelon.
The tower's layers are decorated with bisquits covered with white icing.

This display was designed for a  45 year old woman's birthday party which was a Berry Theme Party. It was a challenging work because I had a task to present nicely the berries as strawberry, red currant, blueberry, raspberry, blackberry and watermelon. I had no better idea than the cake tower.


See more towers in this blog:

The inscription in watermelon shares a popular russian saying that in the age of 45 a woman has a second youth and she is good again as a berry.

Age of 50 is considered as Golden Age for both male's and female's birthdays. See a fruit display "Golden 50'" .

Asian people celebrate 60 year old birthday. This date is a very important day for them. I often do fruit displays for 60 year old partyies. Usually these events are decorated in golden color here in my city.
