More than 1000...

Hello to you all. I am so excited. I have made over 1000 hits on the site and i must admit I thought it would never happen. But it has and I am glad to see people are visiting and reading (although it could just be my mum and dad)!

So I thought since people are visiting it might be nice if people said hello!!!! Please comment. I would love to hear what you think of my creations please.

So it is getting close to July and this year I have two cakes to make for my girls. Last year I only had one so you can guess our little family has expanded. Anyway, the reason I am reminiscing is my first daughter could not make her mind up last year as to what sort of cake she wanted. She changed her mind so many times I gave up in the end and did a simple cake for her.

The cake was a white chocolate mud cake with orange blossom water and white chocolate ganache filling. I had originally planned to model one of the disney princesses but didn't end up doing that and used some little tinkerbell figures I had instead. The cake was decorated with white spots, and red roses. Needless to say she loved it anyway.

Sweet as Mum or nanna for that matter

I haven't done too much this week with cake so I wanted to put up some pictures of some cookies I made for Mums day presents.  They are a lovely vanilla or lemon shortbread. With royal icing on the letters and RTR topping on the dresses.

Cake, lemon, buttercream and curd...yumm!

This is one of my favourite cakes to make. The flavours just spring to life and blend so well.

It is a lemon sour cream cake with lemon buttercream and lemon curd. The outside is lemon buttercream tinted a nice deep yellow colour. It looks a lot darker than it was thanks to the black background I used for photographing. Might try white next time.

I was asked to make it a buttercream coating on the outside and decided to add some fondant discs on the bottom for decoration. 

 Hope the birthday boy liked it.
