I’m so sorry about the camera issue… it wasn’t really a technical issue, I just couldn’t find my charger haha… but i’ve found it now, so i’m back! So I said berries were up next on this sweets deco tute but I just remembered that I already have a tute for strawberries and blueberries. So i’ve updated the existing one here with an additional raspberry tute. Therefore today’s tutorial is actually the final one: how […]

The difference between making sweets jewellery and parts for deco is that you want to keep it as simple as possible for deco. […]

First, good news! This blog is now mapped to a domain now! The domain is ‘www.hikaria.com’ and I decided to take it before it got taken again. Actually, I wanted ‘hikaria.net’ because I used to own that domain, but unfortunately it appears to be some sort of fantasy French website now. I was pretty sad about it because it’s like having someone move into your old house that you still want to live in, but […]
