FFfAW Challenge – 198th

198th Challenge

Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers

Week of 01-01 through 01-07-2019


This week’s photo prompt is provided by Akshata Ram
He had wanted something special for his daughter’s birthday and she had delivered an adventure playground like no other. She had captured the essence of the place down to the last detail.
It had taken hours and patience, but it was perfect, her best work, and she knew he would be pleased.
This kids would love it.
And the best bit was that it was spun sugar and all edible.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Wow! Love the idea.

    • My ex boss used to do sugarcraft, and some of the things she turned out were fabulous. Years ago, a cake maker’s window had a display of Cinderella’s golden coach, mice footmen and all the magic……… all done in spun sugar. She became famous for it and had the monopoly on black icing for years. She made a christening cake with peach coloured icing and tiny flowers with a black swan in each corner. Wonderful.

    A great write…I tried my hand at sugarcraft in the 1960s, it was fun.

  3. Love this! I wish I could be a kid again!

  4. How wonderful! It reminded me of a time when I was little and in the hospital, one of my friends brought me a huge Easter Egg made from sugar and it had a sweet scene inside! Great story!

    I love this! It’s such a positive, vivid image. I love to learn from other writers, and it’s amazing how you capture the entire moment in only a few words!
