decoupage and cake stencils

Spent a leisurely morning on my sunny  balcony making these decoupage dishes 

Dear daughter quite fancies trying the technique too , so she is decoupaging her French folder dividers as we speak with lovely silver wrapping paper.

She also covered the whole kitchen in icing sugar dust to make buttercream for cupcakes
We tried some pretty stencils on sugarpaste, but BOY is sugarpaste difficult to manage in a hot kitchen. I had a feeling it was quite a technical thing to get right..and it is! Used the tip of smearing a little white veg fat to stop it sticking to board, but then when trying to lift the cut piece up, it started stretching out of shape, darn it.
anyway, its OK for a first try

We managed to gobble a couple down

Back to work tomorrow...........
