Musical 18th birthday …

Well, I’m still enjoying attending cake class and learning more and more each week. I know I still have a long way to go and still have lots to learn, but I’m having a fab time. And it’s so great that all my card making skills can be used in a similar fashion with sugar crafting – only wish I’d cottoned onto that years ago – think of all the fun I’ve missed!

So when my friend asked me to make a cake for her son’s 18th birthday I was both flattered and honoured to be asked, and so happy to do it as she is such a great friend.

Deborah gave me a brief – she’d made a card and wanted me to do the cake the same. This is the card Deb did using Stampin’ Up! products …

What a great card, and so appropriate as her son is a musician in a local band and got a guitar for his birthday!

Debs is a fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and a member of the Pink Ladies team. You can see more of her great projects on her blog here.

So, set with the brief and photos of her card, this is the cake I made …



Everything on the cake was edible – including the strings – as long as you like raw spaghetti that is.

Apparently, Lewis had cake for breakfast on his birthday … sounds good to me!


Thanks for dropping by today
