Happy new year to one and all & Best wishes, health and happiness in 2010.

Well the eve of New Years Eve we travelled down early for my friends wedding, we dropped off the cake at around 3pm & went for a swift drink to releive the stress! I have to say a two hour drive & icy roads with three cakes, two elephants, and very nervous Vicky was a nerve racking journey. All I could think of was we’d slip on ice & we’d have cake splatered all over the Jeep! Thankfully all went well.
The wedding of my friend Kerry who I lived with in College who married Rick front man of former band The Hinges! Kerry asked me months ago to make her cake & saw a pic of two little elephants which she wanted on top of the cake – elephant bride & groom. The bridesmaid dresses were beautiful Cranberry colour. Kerry decided to go for a Fruit Cake, Chocolate Biscuit Cake & Chocolate Sponge & Chocolate Buttercream. I made an 11 , 9 & 7 inch cakes, which were covered with almond icing & white fondant. I also added Cala Lily’s which was a mixture of raspberry & ruby colours mixed together, I dusted them with Ruby dust, these were taped with Ivy leaves.
Previously I had only made a one tier cake for my cousins wedding after party during the summer so this was a real test for me.
Happy Cake making xx
