Oh how time runs away, I had not realised it had been some time since I last posted on my blog. We are busy doing some more DIY so the house is a bit of a top at the minute, I will share more of the DIY with you later. My life is extremely busy at the moment both at work and at home. Here are the latest creations from my kitchen. I had three birthday cake orders to complete, one was for a 4 year old boy and he wanted a Fireman theme, so I printed off a picture and added some wording. Unfortunately the icing sheet had lifted a little while it dried so it is not as smooth as I would like, I added some red and white balls of fondant to decorate the base instead of using ribbon and I hear the young man in question was please with his cake. The second cake was for a 50th birthday a friends wife at work placed an order for her cake and she had supplied me with a picture and had said she did not want the usual white with colour added, so I produced this lemon covered cake with white flowers and bow and tag added and also some beading. The final cake was for a certain football team supporter this time the icing sheet went on perfectly and I also managed to do some royal icing, this has been a bit hit and miss for me but like everything else I just need to practise.

I need to get a portfolio together which I have more or less for most of the cakes I have done, but if my friends and I are going to make a go of the Wedding Side of things then I need to get some designs together for Wedding Cakes. In an earlier post you saw a pink and white design with small flowers which I made from fondant. This time I have kept it quite simple but is quite effective. I have used a black and white them and I have used black ribbon with a black strip with square diamante on it, I have used some white and silver butterflies, and black feathers, of course this can be done in any colour them, I have just used what I had in my goodie box.
