A little cake for me.............

I know I had already said I had done my last cake for the next 6 months in my last post and… I go breaking it……For the FIRST TIME I made a cake for my birthday …Yeah yeah you heard right "FIRST time a cake for MOI, all lovingly made by MOI and little bit of self indulgence and what is wrong with that I say :-)

Self indulgence is okay but to stay up till 3:00am doing it while your hands are paining brings CRAZINESS to a new level.

Till two days before the D-day I hadn’t even decided whether I will do anything, didn’t feel like and was missing my parents a lot…….. This decision sort of grew on me ….The kids wanted a cake, there was extra cake, fondant, buttercream etc… from last week, there were two roses I had made long time back ( A black/Burgandy rose and a two toned ‘Osiria’ rose) and the centres for a Red Ranunculus which I made last year inspired by a photograph by Julie Scholz but never got around to finishing (How it ended up becoming a hybrid between a Red Ranunculus and Red Poppy on the cake is a result of time and laziness) and most of all I wanted to do something to keep myself occupied so that I don’t think too much about my Parents and get myself down.

So the day before my birthday and on my birthday I was still making the cake, the flowers and doing the finishing touches. I wanted to try something colourful to keep my spirits up, I don’t know whether it reflects ME but here you go MY BIRTHDAY CAKE…. A vase made of red velvet cake with gumpaste flowers. Hope you like it. Thank you so much for all your support.

P.S. More pictures available on my blog and shortly on FB for those who might be interested in having a look.
