Introducing Kelvin Chua

 ......'' Greetings from Malaysia! my name is Kelvin Chua, first and foremost, a huge thank you to Lyns, for inviting me here and to share my little passion in her blog.

I was graduated as a graphic designer in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. After few years working as a in-house designer, I traveled across the globe to United Kingdom. I wasn't aware about the sugarcraft things until i visited a exhibition in London late 2008. i was addicted to this craft ever since that. Not purely because i like beautiful things, most importantly it is another way for me to express my love and passion of art.

Apart from learning from internet and books, competing in several international competitions in UK is another way i polished my skills. I love to turn my imagination into reality, something people can see it, and even feel it!

Kerry Vincent is my lifetime learning example. All her works are art. They are stylish, elegant and they stand out proud! How i wish i could have the opportunity to fly to US one day to meet her in person!

I'm now a cake designer and sugar artist back in Malaysia. I love sharing my knowledge and experience of art and sugarcraft with everyone who interested. I always challenge myself to create something more impressive than my last piece.

Art is endless, so let your imagination runs wild. one day if you find yourself stuck with idea again, maybe you should start decorate in a reverse way: distort! and distract!

nice meeting you all! happy cakeing and sugaring!

lots of love from Malaysia
Kelvin Chua

Quick introduction

     Greetings from the Pacific Northwest! This is Scott, and I've been invited by Lyns to be an occasional contributor here on "If You Can Fimo, You Can Fondant".

     I have been decorating cakes since I was 8 years old. My grandmothers both excelled in baking, and I was always more than happy to lend a hand (not to mention my over-eager sweet tooth!).

     The fondant trends in cake design today are inspring! I enjoy creating special occasion cakes to suit my clients, but the work seen today from so many sources keeps my mind always grinding, creating, and celebrating the fact that I love what I do!

     Thanks go to Lyndsay, for asking me to share the love and passion for our sugar arts here on her blog.
I look forward to many enjoyable topics and learning experiences to come.

     Happy caking, everyone!
         Chef Scott

The Kerry Bear Contest

Just a quick reminder time is drawing near for the Kerry Bear contest deadline. I am in the throws of announcing another competition with some surprise guests for you. I can barely keep quiet.

Many of you are wondering how to mail your bear and do not worry, Kerry Vincent will be judging your bears based on your photographs. The bears can come when the weather cools and only if you want yours in the photo shoot for my book cover.

When we are finished we shall return your creation back to you. I must say I am very happy with the response this far and hope to see a steady stream of bears in the next 2 1/2 weeks. Happy Sunday to you all!
