Batik Cake for my Grandpa!

Hi everybody! Today, I want to tell you about my Batik Cake that I dedicated to my Grandpa.. :3
In my Chinese culture, I usually call my grandpa with "Akong" (Cultural way to call grandpa). My Grandpa is a really nice man, love children, kind and care. My Grandpa is a Batik Seller. Do you know what Batik is? Batik is an Indonesian art of decorating cloth, using wax and dye, has been practised for centuries. Check This out for more Information about Batik! ;)  What is Batik?

Back to my Grandpa,.. :) Because of his passion and expertness to Batik, I decided to made Batik Cake for my Grandpa. Mmmm, quite difficult. But I made it! The pattern ideas are from my bestfriend, GOOGLE. :P

Blue Color is made from teal color, light and dark. I'm using Wilton gel color. Texture on text are made using Makin's Texture mat. Batik shapes are made using W&W brand decoration cutter that available in my country (Indonesia).
