I was not a huge fan of C&H back in its hey-day, but I did read it in the newspaper (and in full colour on Sundays!) and pretty much came to the conclusion that I would attempt to portray the personalities of these two characters through their facial expressions. I decided on fun-loving and mischief-causing expressions for the precocious Calvin, and sarcastic for the smart-alec stuffed tiger.
The faces of C&H are hand painted onto fondant. Which reminds me - I need to get a new brush, old one no longer gathers into a point at the brush tip :(
Bumble bees were requested as part of the ensemble. To tell the sexes apart, the female bee is adorned with a pink bow while the male bee gave me an excuse to pay homage to the Mad Hatter :)

Hobbes and his paper hat is A's favourite!
C&H kicks Barney and Elmo's a**, any day ;)
I know I've been rather quiet for the past few weeks and owe you guys pictures. Hopefully, I will soon find the time to let you in on what I've been up to. In the meantime, here are pictures of lovebirds for a 10th wedding anniversary along with birthday cupcakes with a purple theme.
