Cancerians Crab Cuppies


Specially requested by Reny for 2 of her colleagues who were having their birthdays this month. The brief was to make something simple for 2 different guys for them to share the cuppies with their kids at home. But something 'simple' wouldn't do kids much excitement enjoying cuppies, I want them to savor the look as much as its Vanilla & Choc Chip flavour.

Needed to squeeze my brain to get an interesting theme quickly as I don't have much time, a basic idea that can be slightly modified into two different set of cuppies. Albeit the different personalities, at least Dodi & Bondan share something in common: their zodiacs! They're Cancerians.

Hence come the idea of making this crab as center piece, one was hanging out on the beach with earthy colour tone, and the other was in the bottom of the sea with teal blue tone.
Along came other sea creatures you can find in the sea and on the beach to accompany each crab.


Orange marbled yellow fishes, seashells, and starfishes...


All figurines were made of fondant, the sand was made of brown sugar. This fake sand looked sooo real but I bet it tastes hundred times better!


They come in clear plastic boxes, a set of 8 cuppies. Wasn't a too bad job for such a short notice (Reny only texted me Tuesday afternoon to get this delivered by Friday!) and I was quite happy with the outcome...


Looked like this crab feel a bit trapped. Poor little things. I wonder if they actually get eaten, too! :)

When you said "was quite happy", I was thrilled! Did not imagine the cuppies would be that cute. They were perfect. Well at least to me as I almost wanted to keep them for myself :)

Thank you sista for the great, very impressive cuppies! Watch out for more short notice orders from me hehehe.. :)
