Piggy Bank Cake

The past few weeks had been terribly busy for me and mentally exhausting.

I had to let go of staff for the very first time. Done with much professionalism, but I could not resist holding her hands and praying for her. It was a painful experience for me.
Most of the past weeks were spent preparing for a business review, even weekends. Praise the Lord, the review went relatively well.
Over the weekend, I finally got a chance to get my hands dirty with cooking and baking, how therapeutic! I made, for the very first time, hainanese pork chop. Result was pretty good. But the best part was, I was able to bake and decorate a birthday cake for my brother-in-law. Very pleased with myself for being able to juggle cooking for almost 20 people and making such an adorable cake. :)

Isn't it cute? Idea is not original.. inspired by many similar cakes in other blogs. Mine was a pound cake with cream cheese frosting. Covered with fondant. Chocolate coins and notes from Candy Empire. My children ate up all the chocolates.

The curly tail. And the imperfections.

Happy Birthday, Felix!!
