Hand Painted Bows, Ribbons and Fabric Roses.....

The Cake Gods and Goddesses were conspiring against me with this one….
First I couldn’t get any ideas on what to do ‘cos my head was full of ’DIY mini Home Renovation’ ideas (which we are in the middle of at the moment, that’s why I have not been very active on CakesDecor lately) and starting a cake just wouldn’t stick…
……then I started running short of time and stressing out and by then an idea and me were just poles apart …..
…. then it was the plumber with our old kitchen sink ( The kitchen is still unusable ’cos we have to do bit of DIY waterproof painting and tiling etc.., luckly I baked the cake just before the plumber came.. phew) ….
…then it was a Positive parenting course I had to attend yesterday…… etc and finally when I was 3/4 way there the lights goes off at 5pm (winter is starting so it gets dark early) but there was a silver lining in this only a fuse had gone lose and power points were still working ….so I used a couple of table lamps to finish off the cake. One of our friends came and fixed the fuse problem for us. So nice of him.

So with the lights back , took some photos of the cake with my hubby going off in the background about how late we are, we will be the last ones, they will be waiting etc….. ;-), so don’t blame me if the photos don’t look that good!!!

He was right………We were the last ones actually…. most of them had actually finished dinner too …..OOPS

With all that stumbling blocks… this is what I finally made: A full Vegetarian Cake with painted ribbons , bows and fabric roses for a lovely Aunt very very close to my heart…………………. she was very happy with my effort which made my day :-)

Thank you so…so… very much Goreti, riverview, Nicole and Elli :-).
It seems the cake Gods and Goddesses have not stopped there……my right hand is paining since yesterday when I use the middle finger and the ring finger and just noticed a swelling above the wrist :-(((… Going to the doctors today I hope and pray that I haven’t got the CTS. Hopefully it is my DIY home renovation that has caused it !!!
