Hi folks! Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet of late. It’s been a stressful few weeks..there has been a lot of not so good stuff going on and it really got me down. The kind of down where you don’t want to get out of bed in the morning. I kind of withdrew into myself and went incredibly quiet. It’s what I tend to do in difficult situations. But thankfully things seem to be settling down now and I’m feeling a bit more positive. I’ve been much too hard on myself lately and I need to stop it. So I’ve been trying to stop worrying about things that might not even happen anyway and just take one day at a time. I’m a natural worrier so trying to relax can be a challenge for me. But I really don’t want to worry my life away so I’ve been trying really hard to just chill and enjoy each day as it comes.
I have been baking but not posting much because I’m currently without a computer. My laptop has hard drive failure, hopefully we will get it fixed soon! Until then I have to make do with my phone for my online activities (thank god for smart phones!)
This kept me busy over the last couple of days..I made a cake for my friends wedding!
It was a simple vanilla sponge cake with vanilla buttercream icing. I was honored to be asked to make such a special cake! 🙂
Here is a few more cakes I’ve made for family recently…
My son with his 9th Birthday cake, he told me exactly what he wanted so I did as I was told! The bottom cake is chocolate mint, the top cake vanilla madeira with vanilla buttercream and strawberry jam.
Lightning Mcqueen cake for my nephew’s little boy. First car cake I’ve ever attempted. The Birthday boy seemed pleased!
Not a decorated cake but I had to include it – Cappuccino cake from Mary Berry’s baking bible – this is a gorgeous cake! You’ll find the recipe here on the lovely Claire’s yummy bakes blog.
