Oldie for FFriday

Hello Everyone
If you can leave a comment. I value what you think of my humble offerings. I don't usually post on Fridays and do my oldie on a Saturday. I'm hoping to go to Ally Pally, so thought I'd try and post tonight. As you know Erika posts an oldie see here and I thought I'd post another cake that I made nearly 30 years ago! I apologise for the quality of the photo. It is a scan of a print. Digital cameras didn't exist then. I made it for my daughter's second birthday. It was inspired by a cake I'd seen for Goldilocks and the Three Bears. It had three "beds" of differing sizes - Daddy Bear, Mummy Bear and Baby Bear. The cakes were Victoria sandwiches. The bears and coverlets were fondant icing. I "painted" the coverlets with food colouring. have a great week end


  1. Hi Karen this is an amazing cake your daughter must have loved it. Enjoy Ally Pally I am hoping to go on Sunday. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  2. What a super design Karen even got the little bedside mat! Look forward to seeing your shopping. Have a good time. Best wishes Jackie x

  3. That is a fab cake, I bet your daughter loved it! It must have been a labour of love painting those bed spreads. Hope you have a good time at the show. Cara x
