Cake and blogging elsewhere

Current work: Medical and nonfic
Listening to: Joe Bonamassa
Reading: next on TBR

Had a wonderful weekend – Saturday evening went really well, and Sunday was very productive. Will be telling Essex tales with pics later this week but, in the meantime, a) I’m shattered (late night Saturday, early morning yesterday, and I walked 17,200 steps) and b) the deadline is screeching, so I’ll leave you with two things.

Firstly, the cake topper from my stepmum’s cake. My friend Nicky (who made the cake) is incredibly talented, because this is all done in sugar. Isn’t it lovely?

Secondly, I’m doing the Male on Monday slot at the Pink Heart Society today. Those of you who have met DH can start smiling now. (No, it’s not him - but my subject is his double.) Curious? Go and have a look! :o)

Lovely cake. Hugs on being shattered and best of luck with the deadline.
The sunshine does make a difference, doesn't it?

Wow! That is a serious cake decoration! Lovely! Caroline x

Olivia Ryan said...

Looking forward to the Essex tales and pics, Kate! xx And yum to the cake!

I've always wanted to be able to decorate cakes. It's gorgeous and looks so real!

Good luck with the deadline :D

I love cake decorating and used to do it loads - a miniature dolly's tea-party for my daughter was my favourite (with spotty fondant tea-pot, a matching little sugar bowl containing a silver spoon, two types of sandwich (marmite and jam!), teeny fondant roses and a miniature birthday cake with seven candles atop).
But I have to say that these flowers are seriously good...

Nina - thanks - and we didn't have sunshine yesterday. Grey and FREEZING on the east coast :o(

Kate Hardy said...

Nell - thank you, and so do I!

Kate Hardy said...

Caroline - she's amazing. She did a Tardis one for son's 10th and it was fantastic. She also did me an M&B cover for my 40th, which amused me highly!

Kate Hardy said...

Olivia - on their way :o) (And the cake tasted even nicer than it looked. Obviously we didn't eat the flowers...!)

Kate Hardy said...

Lacey - I'm so glad I have talented friends who can do this :) And thanks. I think I'm going to need it!

Sharon - that sounds adorable. (And if you have a pic, I think that'd make a fabulous blog post...)
