Tomorrow is Brad from Writing to Freedom blog’s 60th birthday. He is having a blog party in celebration and has invited to guests to join by writing a post about their muse. You can read about his party here: https://writingtofreedom.com/2021/05/26/celebrating-our-muses/
I have more than one muse and I have written about my writing muses before. Today, I am going to write about my fondant art muses. There are three, Flute, Toot, and Hoot and they conspire to help Michael and I think of fun ideas for our Sir Chocolate books illustrations and also for cakes for celebrations.
Flute, Toot, and Hoot are party clowns and they like celebrations, socialising, and having fun. Sadly, they have not reacted well to the pandemic and lockdown and after the first 6 weeks of lockdown in March and April 2020, when they helped inspire our Dinah in Wonderland cake and the Fondant cat parade, they upped and left for quite a long time.
They popped in at Christmas time and helped to inspire our Gingerbread and chocolate houses diorama, but they they disappeared again.
I thought we weren’t going to be able to have a cake for Terence’s birthday this year and they just were not playing ball but then suddenly, about a month ago, they popped up like three brightly coloured clowns – oh! they are brightly coloured clowns – he he! and inspired a summer beach cake.
Here is the dolphin and …
here is the boy in a sailing boat with the dolphin on the ocean.
Here is the entire cake with the windsurfer resting and considering the swells while the boy in the sailing boat and the dolphin go past.
Do you have a muse? Tell me about him/her in the comments.
