Not believe? Try it yourself!
It was retailed at the price of RM5.30, 5 different type of cakes included. Design by YAMAGUCHI MAKOTO, the Chairperson of Origami House. Thank you for designing these for us, if I ever meet you in real life I must get your autograph for life!!
Origami (折り紙?, from ori meaning "folding", and kami meaning "paper" (kami changes to gami due to rendaku)) is the artof paper folding, which is often associated with Japanese culture. In modern usage, the word "origami" is used as an inclusive term for all folding practices, regardless of their culture of origin. The goal is to transform a flat sheet square of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques.

I was kinda out focus these days, so I went to shopping and see this I knew I had to get this. I am not a big fan of origami (paper folding) and bad at it actually!
The first one I fold would be shortcake. I love how they focus on the littlest details!
I'm glad that it included an instruction on both English and Japanese language, the instructions were clear and easy to understand.
First of all, fold 1/4.
Fold the edge down along the existing crease line.
Fold corner to corner. Open and squash.
Fold the flap up and edge to the crease line. Open top layer and rise it so it become 3D.
Continue working on "whip cream". Fold in half and fold along printed line to make a zik zak form.
For "strawberry", fold half.
Fold corner to the center and fold corner inside. It's really simple and cute!
OMG so cute!!
Lastly, assembly all parts together. I use eyelash glue instead of normal glue because I couldn't find my glue stick. (don't judge the lazy me LOL)
Peel the plates and put the cakes on top.
It's all done. Each cake can fold up to 3 pieces, imagine if you buy 3 sets it could make a whole cake!
And here is 4 sets of cakes but I will just make it a big skip!
CHOCOLATE CAKE, OMG even the choco stick decoration!
MONT BLANE, walnut is my least favorite but look at the paper under the cake! Just like those from bakery's right?!
PETIT CAKE, the marron have same way as folding the strawberry!
CHEESE CAKE, that mint on top is killing!
I already started to love origami, it gives me a great way to kill time and to peace myself when sometimes I was so stressful. In which this also makes a great gift and if you have child or younger brothers or sisters, this could be a fun activity to play at home. My favorite would definitely be shortcake!
What do you think?
Previously my only experience of water-coloring was in my elementary school. Today will be my second day of learning watercolor painting (on internet). I wish to take classes but had no chance so I just YouTube searching and this painting was learned from EkaterinaSmirnova. Her tutorial is so easy to follow, you can find the tutorial from here.
Feather and Popsicle tutorials from ART TV by Fantasvale. Her tutorials are really easy to understand.
Late night practicing on painting feathers and ice-creams. Watercolor can truly bring out the effect of being soft and fluffy, I wonder why I never like it before.
One of my makeup bag just turned into an artist bag. I love to collect stationary, especially stamps, pens and inks!
I bought this solid watercolor from Daiso, it costs RM5.30. I'm glad I bought this, it works great for a beginner.
Extendable cup. Also from Daiso, RM5.30. Great for savingplace so I can place inside my bag.
Now starts painting.
I used 20 minutes to finished this painting. I decided to write "Sakura". Now for the comparison.
I guess this is a 3/5 for myself. Need more practice.
Til next time!
