The C word......

Well hello there..

Blogger tells me I have had lots of visitors... feel free to leave a comment or question..

So as the C word is on its way my house smells like the spirit isle... 

The good thing about making your own or buying from a cake maker is that you can pick exactly what goes in..

I have had port, sherry, dark rum, brandy and cider requests so far lol..

Now if I could just remember to feed the cakes and not me these cakes will be VERY merry lol!!

My fist cakey challenge...

So hello and good morning.

I hope you are all having a fab day..

Now as some of you will know I have made cards for several years, however it is all about the cakey side of crafts now... however what we have realised is the two can mix..

So here is my first cakey post for That craft shop - a shop that not only sells amazing card crafts but lots of things that can be used on cakes too...

So this week the theme is THINK PINK

and here is my cake:

So that fab Ballerina is one of TCP's stencils... I just used some coloured royal icing to stencil it on the cake..
The rest is just pink icing, flower petals and a ball tool..

Thanks for looking and why not come and join us xx
