I was away on hols last week and went to the knitting & stitching show with my mum and sister, they are much more crafty than me, sister can pick up needles and knit anything, she bought fab giant needles to make a rug or scarf, they are made by a lady in England who had world record knitting needles there, they were about 10 foot long. really cool, i bought some material, really cool jelly roll to make patchwork quilt although must finish my current quilt, will post a pic of it when i go about finishing it, but someone there told me i was defo a quilter if you start one thing and move onto the next! not sure is that good or bad thing. But defo if you are into sewing, knitting, papercraft or generally interested in crafty things like us you should defo go along next year.
I made a cake when I was off for my friends sisters 30th, she wanted a handbag cake in cerise pink so I’ve posted the pic below, the cake is based on cake from the Planet Cake book which is an Australian book leant to me by a friend. But if you want to try a few cake projects its brilliant book with loads of basics & techniques at the start of the book and then beautiful pics of the cakes & cupcakes with full templates at back of the book. It outlines in detail with pencil drawings step by step instructions. My cake was a Channel Handbag with the padded sides & the two iconic C’s and twisted handles. I also added on black beading on the end of the cake for detail.
Bit disappointed never got to make my Halloween cookies this year but was action packed Halloween to celebrate my friends hen party in Galway… there’s always next year! Although I did manage to make Pirate Cupcakes for my godsons Halloween Party, he really wanted a Skull and Crossbones Cake, but its on the way… in the mean time I had to keep him sweet!!
Hope you like it! Vick xx
PS. I was over at the International Cake Exhibition in Birmingham at the wkend so will upload some cool pics of that the cakes were AMAZING.
