Chinese New Year Cookies and Fondant Cake Decor

Was terribly busy during the weeks running up to Chinese New Year with the various baking of Chinese New Year Cookies.  It was a fun time churning out all these cookies.

 Also had an order for some cakes to be delivered before Chinese New Year.  And since it was the Lunar New Year of the Rabbit, came up with this simple CNY cake decor.
For the edible cake decor:-   Fondant rabbit signifying the zodiac rabbit year.  Fondant plum blossom flowers signifying luck.  A red fondant background representing joy, virtue, truth and sincerity since red is an auspicious colour.  And all things gold for prosperity.

Simple and nothing too elaborate for the fondant cake decor...  Yet bringing out the significance of the Chinese New Year festival.
