I think i am becoming addicted to this blogging malarkey!!!! Thought i would add a few of my birthday cakes for you.
This one is for a friends grans 80th Birthday and I loved doing all of the intricate lacework in royal icing. Very detailed but really satisfying when you see the end result i think. Loved making the roses, leaves and flowers as well and assembling them into a spray.
And my second cake below is totally different, for a friend who is an avid Newcastle united football supporter and she actually got me to go along to my very first football match at St James park a few years ago. Although it was a good day i never caught the bug and think I'll keep save and warm indoors with my card and cake making, it was freezing and i had 2 tops, a fleece, a coat and a pair of leggings under my jeans.
The top is all made icing and coloured with edible pens and food colouring and the decoration was painted on by my own fair hands, ok i admit i did some tracing. Again another satisfied customer.
Hello all my lovely blog friends......... This is the little bit about me section. I live in Durham and married to Kevin, this year we will celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary, I really don't know where the time has gone. We have two children Mark 30 and Emma 29 and 1 granddaughter, Gracie 9. I have been crafting for as long as I can remember as my mother was a keen crafter. She started me off with cake making, cake decorating and I soon progressed to knitting, crocheting, sewing, cross stitch, embroidery, and papercrafting. My two passions at the moment are cake decorating which I have been keen on for over 25 years as a hobby and I have been card making for just over 12 years. I am now one of Crafters Companion Staff Members, little did i know by starting to watch crafting tv that i would end up with a job at CC and i just love it. I still carry out some design team work and demonstrate in stores around the country. I will keep you updated of upcoming events and demo's.
