A group of us got together at work and decided we would have a fund raising event. We decided on a Pink Day in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness. It was an opportunity for the cooks among us to get baking and a couple of the girls made cards. Here are a couple of pictures of what was made. I purchased three of the cards and I think they are beautiful. Despite there not being many people in the office as there usually would be we managed to raise around £111.00, which we were all pleased with.

As most of you know my main craft is baking. I am still trying to find my way with my new Cricut Cake, I have a lot to learn still! So recently in between trying to master this machine, i have gone back to making sponges and am taking orders for Christmas at the moment after having put a poster up at work designed by one of my friends there. I now have a number of orders for the traditional Christmas cake and some sponges all to be decorated. So, I think i am going to be fairly busy over the next few weeks. However another friend of mine celebrated her birthday this week at work and normally my work mates would go to the local supermarket and buy a selection. I was asked to make to sponge cakes once of which was the one in the picture which was a Lemon Iced sponge cake. I think it went down well and I have an order for a smaller one for another work friend who is buying it for her Gran who loves lemon sponge. I will also be making some more goodies over the next week as we are holding a fund raising event at work, so will tell you morenext weekend.

Well those of you who have been following my projects will know that I got a new toy a few weeks ago, since then I have been trying to get the hang of things. Have a look at the photo's, they are by no means perfect but I have managed to get some shapes cut out of the fondant from my Cricut Cake. There is still a long way to go but I am not as frustrated with it as I was at first. It seems to be a case of trial and error at the moment, but I am quite please with my afternoons work.

Well, apart from having my new toy, I have also been trying to finish off a few things, one in particular. This is a baby shawl for my niece and god daughter who is expecting her first baby at the end of the year. I am pleased with the way it has turned out and it was an easy pattern to do. Julie, I hope Jo will like it when she sees it.
Julie, I saw your comment on my last post and I am sure Mum would be proud and very interested in what we are doing, in fact she would probably join in.
Must dash off now, I need to get to grips with the Cricut Cake, it chewed up the last piece of icing I was cutting out, not quite got the hang of it yet.
