Sweet bundle of love …

I started a beginners cake decorating course at night school in September.  My daughter, who is getting married in 18 months’ time, has asked me to make her wedding cake and whilst I feel very honoured, I also feel a little daunted too …

She asked me because I made my own wedding cake … but that was 24 years ago and I only decorated it as my mum made the fruit cake base!  So I thought I’d better do something about it now whilst I have plenty of time to practise …

So far I am loving the course.  We have a lovely teacher (hi Tracey) and I’ve made friends with a great girl, Claire, who helps me enormously.  On the very first lesson, Tracey got us doing some sugar modelling … here’s my first attempt at sugar crafting…

I lost count of how many times I did the ears and took them off again, but I have not laughed so much in ages – it was great fun! 

Now for something I feel a little more comfortable with … my friend, Ana, asked me to make a new baby card for her friends in Italy.  I used my favourite baby stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Bundle of Love…

I just love this two-step stamp set.  The images are so cute they are adorable!  I used whisper white and pretty in pink for the card but the lighting wasn’t quite right when I was photographing it and everything turned out looking a little pink – maybe I should sign up for a photography course next! 

Thanks for dropping by today
