A friend of ours had made some home made wine which he sent over for us to try, it went down very nicely I must say. Whilst making the birthday cake and having the oven already on I made some vanilla cup cakes as I wanted to decorate them with fondant and try out my textured rolling pin that I bought at the cake show at the NEC last November. If you zoom in on the photo you may be able to get a clearer picture. I topped it off with some of the flowers I had left over from another cake I had made. I hope he likes them.
I was asked to make a birthday cake for someone's sisters 30th Birthday, they had given me an idea of colours and how they wanted the design doing. I made a 12" square Victoria sponge cake, covered in almond past and white sugar paste then coloured some white sugar paste with voilet colour paste to get the shade I wanted, they wanted feathers to match and a glitter "30". When putting the design together how they had wanted I found it did not look quite to good so changed it slightly, I hope they like it.
