Have had a busy day today - making and icing family birthday cakes, and also making a necklace for a birthday present.
This one is for my granddaughter, she is giving up ballet shortly after her next exam, and concentrating on her tap and street dance, which will give her more time on a Saturday reducing her lessons from 3 to 2 hours! She is a busy little bee with swimming lessons, Brownies, doing all her craft and homework, so something has had to give! So I thought it only apt that I make her a cake with ballet shoes on before it is too late. (I remember doing a similar cake for her mum when she was Ellie's age!)
I can report that she loves the cake, albeit it is pink, (not her favourite colour, but you don't see ballet shoes in purple!) as they called in with the cake board for it whilst I was in the last throws of icing it and didn't have time to hide it!
Fortunately there will still be a surprise as having received the board and iced it, I made a few quick roses (I call them marzipan roses, although they were made of sugarpaste!) to put on the board. Knowing that she really likes blues and purples, I edged the pink roses with some purple!
This evening I have sat and made her a little necklace and bracelet, so will share that tomorrow.
Thanks for dropping in!
