Well, how have you been this wet and windy weekend. We bobbed out a couple of times but didn't stay out long, so I spent the day in my kitchen today and worked on a couple of valentines cakes that I had been asked to do, I hope my customers like their orders.

Hello again just another quick post, I have been catching up with my blogger friends and been nominated by Andie for two awards. Thank you so much Andie I am chuffed to bits, here they are everyone I hope I have done this right! Well i now need to nominate someone but it is so hard so I would like to nominate all my friends from blog land, I hope you accept and enjoy the awards.
Well here we are again, I have just sat down to have a few minutes at my computer. Hubby is fed and watered and so are the two dogs. Our older one Kyrie is poorly at the moment we have been to the vets and we have to give her some tablets and I am hoping this will sort things out. Anyway I mentioned yesterday I was making another cake, I know I am posting pictures of it on my blog but the person it is for is not likely to see it, one person may and that is my friend Jenny, but I don't mind her having a sneaky peek before tomorrow. One of our works colleagues is celebrating the big 50 tomorrow and a few of us at work have been planning something special, I was asked to make her birthday cake. What do you think. I need a bit more practice on the smoothing out of the icing but I don't thinks it has worked out too bad. I can't wait to see her face tomorrow when she sees what we have all planned.

Well here it is with roses attached, not sure if it still needs a bit more or whether the roses should be placed a bit differently. I am going to e-mail a photo to my "client" and see what he thinks. I have also been asked to do another cake for valentines day for someone else, will post some pictures of what I do when ready.

What a cold and windy weekend we are having in Cheshire, it is not very pleasant out there today and our garden is getting a real battering, a lot of our plants are now damaged especially our Australis we have lost all the tops of it now and I am not sure whether it will now survive. We will have to wait and see. Anyway I have been playing in my kitchen and as mentioned in earlier posts I had bought some cake dummies which you can use to practise with. I have been asked to make a valentines cake for someone but he wants to see the design first. Here are a couple of pictures of where I am up to so far. It will be finished off with black roses, which I am in the process of making (very fiddly). I will be taking a picture of the finished example hopefully later on today. I have now started a round design and will be using my cricut cake for the shapes, will post some pictures when finished..
