Birthday Craft

Hi all,

I finally got back into the crafty mood this week --- pushed in part by my daughter's birthday. I got all crazy and decided to decorate her cake (not so crazy as to try to make the cake itself as our oven burns the bottom of things). I have never tried to make a children's birthday cake before so it's not too bad for a first attempt.

As always I learned a few things I will do differently next time I make this style of cake... icing whiter, try something different for the turret cones, bigger/taller cakes, etc... Hopefully she still likes princesses next year!

Hmm ... might need to see to straightening those turrets too!

I also made the card. We gave a similar card to one of her friends and Jessica liked it that much I thought I'd make her one too.

We had some family and friends over for morning tea/lunch... sausage rolls, party pies and cake. All easy stuff.

Now for a little sit down and a coffee then tonight I start making 50 place cards for a wedding ... the crafty fun never ends!

I will post the other things I've done over the last few weeks soon. 

Take care,
