Also this week my husband said we were visiting one of his work friends on Saturday and asked if I would make a cake to take for them (this was Thursday night when he informed me). So, yesterday after going shopping straight from work, I decided to make some cup cakes, I decided this because I found them easier to do rather than a large sponge cake. I made lemon sponge mixture and this morning when I got up around 7.30 am (I am always up early in a morning) I made a lemon flavoured butter cream and I had some yellow fondant left over from a previous cake I made so made some flowers and added white centres to them.
I have been so busy of late, I have not had much time to post anything on my blog. As usual you will find me in my kitchen, and I am currently getting ready for my Christmas Cake Orders. I have 10 Christmas cakes to make and they are all fruit cakes so that makes it a lot easier to plan for as I can make these well in advance.
As well as preparing for Christmas I was asked by a friend at work to make a cake for her daughters school prom party. Apparently a few of the mums had got together to organize it and I was asked to make the cake for them. I made a 12" sponge cake and the colours were white fondant icing, I made glitter stars with blue fondant and edible glitter dust scattered over them and added the words Class of 2011, Good luck year 6. Here is a couple of photo's I am sorry my photography is not very good, I never seem to get the lighting quite right.
