We have beautiful sunshine at the moment. I hope it lasts and OH is off today. I'm hoping to go shopping. We are toying with buying a new tele. I am such a TV addict that I have worn the current one out. Is it worth getting it repaired or cut our losses and get a new one with a 5 year warranty...?
Anyway, as most of you know I try and post an oldie as inspired by Erika at Snappycrafts. I always post on Saturdays as I don't do a Friday post. I love her posts on Saturday. They really make me smile.
As it's so sunny I thought I'd post a photo of one of the cakes I used to make. When my kids were little (30 odd years ago) I could not afford to buy shop made cakes and they weren't readily available on supermarket shelves like they are now . I am slowly (when laptop behaves!) scanning my photos. It was inspired by Jane Asher. I own her Novelty Cakes book and one on Fancy Dress.
Everything on the cake is edible and the cake was a rich, matured fruit cake, covered in marzipan first. It is a little rough and ready by today's standards, back then I didn't have access to the beautiful cutters etc and had to compromise a lot! I made several of this style for friends as Birthday cakes, Retirement, Anniversary. I used sit in front of the tele and mould/create the flowers. Little fingers would be out of the way. I'd hide them in the garage to dry.
Enjoy your week end.
