Under the Sea Cake ..

This was my first attempt at making things with fondant icing…it was my little boys first birthday and he loved the shower curtain we had just bought, so I thought I would go for “Under the Sea”..he recognised the things on top so that was a bonus!

I think if I’m honest I was so very pleased with myself (and relieved!!) that I was hooked on fondant from then on….either way it’s a cake I was and still am proud of.


Spider Cake

Last week was the birthday party of my little one’s friend…7 years old,..his sister was having a party at the same time (the grand old age of 3).

Anyhoo I offered (as our gift probably to his Mum as much as anything LOL!!) to make the cake…

As per usual no fancy tools or tins but I reckon it came out OK…main thing is Dylan liked it….only trouble was he left the spider at the party venue (apparently there were lots of tears about this)…going to see them in the next couple of days …don’t tell him..I made him another spider =)


Anyone for cake?

I made a birthday cake for a colleague at work ….thought I wold keep it reasonably simple because I decorated in between nights and had to get some sleep…I had made a plan for what it would look like….somehow this is nothing like I had planned{rofwl} {rofwl} …don’t know why I bothered really they never really come out the way I plan with the exception of the cheeseboard cake I did but I was so worried it would go wrong ( and it was my gift for a friends 50th) I stuck rigidly to the plan then.
Anyhoo thought I’d share the end result…don’t be fooled by the flowers going down the sides (they can hide a multitude of sins !).
