In Chinese culture, birthdays are often celebrated with Longevity Gods. In this case it’s a lady celebrating her birthday, thus the Longevity Goddess, presented amongst lucky peaches which are also synonymous of long life!

      Cheers Edena! :)
      It’s made of sugar modeling paste. It’s cooked sugar with glucose and vegetable gum that is worked as a modeling paste and it allows us to create precise shapes like that longevity lady!
