I know, I know, I've been MIA. I hope you haven't left me. I am an emotional blogger - I find it hard to post when I'm feeling down. But the other reason is, I am fussy. I like to have pictures to accompany my posts. It makes for more interesting reading I think, when there is something visual there too. But since the photos I really wanted were on hubby's camera, I couldn't get them when I wanted them. I am still waiting on said photos.
Well, no more putting it off; even without those pics, I will go ahead and post. And it may not be in chronological order! But I'm going to get over that and post anyway. I will try not to bombard with posts one after another with what has been going on. There is a bit of cake, and a bit of Erik. A bit of family and a bit of fun. All the bits and pieces that make up this blog.
But first up, just a cake....
This one was made as a gift to my husbands grandmother, for her 80th birthday. Only a small cake, 6", fruitcake. I made the flowers, trying really hard to come up with a spray that was both classic, but with a more modern, cleaner feel to it. These were the first flowers I had made since class! We had to transport the cake with us over the 3 day journey interstate for the celebrations. Fortunately, it made it there with minimal damage - a couple of leaf tips and only one orchid petal broke off. I was able to fix the petal, thankfully, and the broken leaf tips were not even noticeable.
