Hello, to all my friends, I bet you thought I had left the country. Well I am still here, I have been so busy of late as usual in my kitchen making cakes, well what else, although I do have other hobbies I don't seem to have much time for them. I am trying to get ahead with the large orders I have for Christmas Cakes and have now made six fruit cakes of various sizes and more to do. In between I am still doing other orders and here is a picture of one I completed this morning. This is for a friends son who is mad on mountain bikes so that set the theme. It is not as perfect as I would like as I had problems getting the edible sheet to lie flat and I know it is because the fondant has not been as smooth as I would like. As on my last picture cake I was concerned about seeing the edges of the decor sheet so I have tried my hand at some piping work that we were shown in our classes earlier in the year. I have not done this since then so it is not as tidy as I would like but it does finish off that edge. Now the challenge is to get it to work in my car in once piece, I have not had any problems so far but you never know so I had better pack ,my repair kit to take to.
And finally we are now grandparents our son and his fiance gave birth to a wonderful daughter in the early hours of Tuesday 25th October, I have not been to see her yet but judging from the photo's we have had she is beautiful. Hopefully I will be able to share some photo's soon with you. PS: sorry for the second picture being on the side, never seem to be able to get that right but hopefully you get an idea of what the cake looks like. Bye for now. Sue c
