After a busy week both at work and at home, I completed my latest order Thursday evening. This was for a 12" sponge cake covered in lemon fondant and handmade flowers. This order came via a friend at work whose partners mum celebrated her birthday last week and they have arranged a get together for Saturday evening (I don't think she knows about it or at least not the cake). It was a bit of a nightmare to actually cover the cake due to the fondant being so large to cover it, however I managed it. As always I am very critical on what I do and as every crafter knows when you have made something for someone you look for everything that could be wrong. I carefully took the cake into work Friday morning wedged cushions around the box and got there with no mishaps. My friend Jenny was the first one to see it (she and my friend Alison and myself are looking at combining our skills and creating a small business)and I know she will give me the honest opinion, and it got the "wow" factor. Also the rest of my friends thought the same as did the person who ordered it, so that gave me a boost of confidence. Here is a picture, this as said earlier was a 12" sponge cake and the cake tin is the largest I can fit in my oven so at least I know what size of cake I can go up to.
