Well, what a busy few weeks of cake baking and sugar crafting. My family seem to have birthdays very close together sometimes, but you cannot have a birthday without cake can you. My first cake was to celebrate my mums birthday, a very tipsy fruit cake covered in marzipan and icing. She likes flowers and pink, so pink roses and white hydrangea flowers were what I chose to do.
Next it was my beautiful nieces 18th birthday party so two cakes had to be made super quick. I chose a four tiered velvet cake and vanilla sponge covered in jam and buttercream combo for one of the twins and then I baked another alcohol soaked fruit cake for the other one.
I dressed my fruit cake with a girl in pink ,but when I set up the cake for cutting, I placed mini champagne candles around the figure and in her arms, it was a celebration after all. I hear from my brother in law this morning that any left over sponge cake has been eaten for breakfast ! it sounds like the celebrations are carrying on for another day.
