WOW youve missed alot :)

Yes I've been super busy recently, and yes your probably a little neglected, but I'm here now :) hush hush, it will all be alright!

So what exactly have you missed? LOTS of cakes and behind the scenes talk, and the event of the century for me! But I know how my posts become super long like a bucket of tangled spaghetti so I promise to keep this one simple and include lots of yummy piccies to feast on,

Ok to kick things off we have the 4 tier wedding cake I needed to complete after I came back from the Fern show, lots of ribbon roses to make or 'soft roses' as people like to call them, in baby pink and light pink, this is how it turned out!


The couple were supplying their own topper so I just made 2 small roses to adorn the top with :)
The groom came to collect it and he seemed so excited about the wedding which I thought was super cute! and it looks like they had an awesome day from what I see on Facebook :)
Next was a little dinky....George themed from Peppa Pig! I themed the actual cake part on his 'dine-saw raaawwr' and had a little George sitting on the top:

and the little tail hidden round the back



After that I received an e-mail explaining I had won yet another competition!! I had totally forgotten about it bus was chuffed all the same! I was announced as a runner-up alongside Becky from the Fern show, that was a surprise as I didn't know she had entered but was chuffed for her too, and we both got our goodies :)


Weeee! Really excited to receive this stuff! I haven't used any of it yet, but I'm sure I will get round to doing at some point!

Then I got to do a cake that I had been looking forward to for a long time! A bride who wasn't afraid to have just what she wanted on her wedding day, and did it all her OWN way, not how someone else thinks she should have done it....which is exactly how I want mine! LOL When at first she wanted a New York themed wedding cake I was excited as it was still very different to the 'traditional flowery cakes', but when she changed her mind and went with what her heart REALLY wanted i could have squealed :)....a ZELDA wedding cake! Yep... the little dude in the green costume who appeared in many video games was about to appear on top of a wedding cake...but not just a white wedding cake....nope, a colourful one themed around the game 'The Windwaker'.

I did plenty of research and found some very funky things like painting fish, weird coloured blob things and mini men with leaves for faces but I didn't question it....if it was in the game, it was going on the cake!

Feast your eyes on an awesome brides dream wedding cake:


It was alot of work making all the tiny details and trying to get them just right, but I just love the way a cake comes together when you work so hard on it. Brides, if your listening...go with your heart, and if your heart is telling you to have flesh eating zombies, aliens, or skeletons on your wedding cake.....do it! And I'm your girl for the job ;) ha ha.
