I’ve been working on some of the characters for the competition cake again this week. I’m quite pleased with them so far, but there’s loads to do yet. Also this week I’ve been trying out recipes and icing techniques for Christmas biscuits…yes Christmas seams to arrived early to my kitchen this year! I’m preparing ready for my Craft Stall later in the year and don’t want any nasty surprises with soggy biscuits or the taste not being just right....

I’ve been sooooooo busy in the last few weeks. Cake pops for a wedding, and I’m starting to work on the characters for the cake I’m planning to enter into my first cake competition. My fingers are starting to dry out already from the delicate shaping of the tiny fondant bits and pieces (must buy some really good hand cream this weekend). I’ve planned out the shape and size of the cake, the catagory section is “A wedding cake of two or more tiers. So I’m goi...

This year i have decided to do it as a business and have been getting everything i need ready. One of the things i have been looking into lately is copyright.

I had promised some friends (a couple that I’ve recently met that I would be baking them one of my yummy cakes,the “Rum Pineapple Upside Down cake”). It’s one of my ...
