Forgive the very bad photo, but it's dark and there's no natural light. This is the first cake from the new kitchen. It's heading off to London to a man (known as Taxi Ted) who is retiring. I wonder why he's called that. He's a ship broker.

I seem to have spent all weekend doing this cake, washing and ironing. No time for knitting. But that will all change tomorrow I hope. As a present, I have been sent a skein of something very lovely... but that's another story, you'll have to come back then. For now it's my bed time.

Night night, sleep tight everyone.

I don't know which is more amazing - that cake or your lovely hat!
I am clear on one thing: either would be WAY beyond my abilities!!
Beautiful work. Both.

That's a fantastic looking cake Michaela - having tried some of the penguin cake at Kerrie's I know it will taste even better than it looks! Abi x

What a FUN Cake!!

Thought of you last night while watching "The Queen: 80 years of Royal Service" or some such title. (What can I say? I'd come on right after Jane Austin's "Persuasion" - not the best production I'd ever seen). Anyway, sorry to say that I didn't note your smiling face in any of the documentary shots.

ps:TBG posting your pressie this afternoon.

Man oh man - you really give good cake! It reminds me of that Skoda advert where the car is all cake ....

..... mmmmm, a cake the size of a car - what a truly fabulous idea!

I hope the non-taxi driving Taxi Ted enjoys it
