It’s been a long day, a day with beautiful family, beautiful children and a very special day for one gorgeous little boy
was so jam packed that this week I just want it to be as boring as possible.
I know it’s not going to happen, but I can wish can’t I
last week was the last week of term and Easter happenings were all around
I baked some Easter gingerbread for the kids at school
I made an Easter bonnet for Amelie using a flower tutorial from here (I originally saw it on someone else’s blog but I cannot remember where, if it was yours please let me know)
I had an order for a 60th birthday cake which I absolutely loved making
gingerbread numbers and a chocolate layer cake
so this week, I intend on using the yummy homemade soap I received in the mail, thank you for the surprise sweet lady ♥
this week I am going to bake some naan bread from my new cookbook from the loveliest of friends (you are awesome) which I am absolutely loving
and this week we are going to enjoy the first week of school holidays and I will be smiling as I am SO proud that my girl got through her first term of prep, exhausted but filled with inspiration and willingness to keep on learning (love you baby girl ♥)
Whatever it is, I hope it’s filled with lots of giggles, hugs and love ♥
and if you want to laugh, pop by here as well
There has been a lot of construction over here lately and there will be a lot of baking happening soon too.
Constructing a fondant flower to be used as a cake topper for a cake order
and manically constructing an Easter bonnet for Amelie for tomorrow’s Easter parade.
Thanks for the encouraging words, I hope it looks good after all the cutting, pasting, stapling and
I was inspired by a lovely friends birdie I have hanging and recycled some lovely wrapping paper too.
Happy creating you lovely bunch of girls, two more days of school left..yay!!
Thank you so very much for leaving such sweet words on my self-portrait, I really, really appreciate your comments always and love that you liked the cake in progress as well.
Sorry, I didn’t manage to reply personally to you but you all had me smiling with your sweetness.
I thought I’d share the finished cake with you, it was made for an order for a spaceship crazy
3-year-old boy and inspired by this awesome illustration.
I have been told the cake was delicious but you know that’s all good to hear from the parents but what I absolutely loved was the look on this sweet little boys face when he saw it…priceless!
Hope you are enjoying your Friday, we have been enjoying the rain outside and hoping it will stop for the weekend festivities.
Hugs and thanks again for making me smile and hello to new friends that are joining along ♥
It feels like I haven’t baked for you in a while.
Oops, I think I may have been too preoccupied with twirling around.
I made a caramel mud cake and a pear & almond tart for an order but I have more to bake so I might not pop round for a bit.
I’ll have to share my pear & almond tart recipe with you too.
Promise I’ll visit, I hope you put the kettle on, I’ll bring cake 😉
Happy creating ♥
