Peanut butter cheesecake

This looks so yummy, I really must give it a go :D

I love this blog - in particular I love her idea of a communal virtual party where we can all inspire and be inspired through our shared recipes and photos.

Fairy Cake

This was made for a friend's 4 year old grandaughter. I had so much fun making it. I was able to fully indulge myself in all things fairy, pink and sparkly to my heart's content!

The only restriction I was given was that the fairies shouldn't be fat! So I tried very hard to produce dainty fairies - I had to give in and use florist wire for the legs of the standing fairies in the end but I was really pleased with the overall effect.

The cake itself is vanilla sponge (coloured pink of course) layered together with cream cheese frosting, the castle was modelled out of cake pop mix, when it is chilled I find it really good for modelling with.

The whole thing was iced with rolled fondant, the figures and flowers were also modelled from fondant and then I used royal icing to piped the details.

I was actually quite sad to see it go, however onwards and upwards, this weeks challenge is to produce a cake that is a  monkey riding on the back of a tortoise!

This week I have 
  • Entered and won the village craft show - including making a lavender bag at 3am in the morning
  • Made a three tier pink birthday cake
  • Made 2 tutu's for my daughter and her friend,  a skirt and matching scarf for me
  • Made a giant chocolate cherry cake
  • Been to two parties
I guess that might explain why I'm so tired today so I'm chilling out, watching Cake Boss and doing absolutely nothing :D

Pretty in Pink

"Pretty in pink" Cupcake platter

So this is what I made this weekend - a mixture of standard and mini cupcakes decorated with royal icing and sugar flowers, plus some almond cake balls dipped in dark and white chocolate.

I took them in to share with my patchwork class and they went down very well :D

Today I have been mostly making . . .

Party bags and hair scrunchies out of a beautiful butterfly fabric that I have been hoarding for ages. I am really pleased with the results and will post lots of pictures tomorrow.

I have also been working on my new online shop which can be found at folksy. Just click the link at the bottom of the page to go straight there.
