Busy in the kitchen...
Just taking a while off to say hello to you all. I'm not allowed to show you any progress pictures, but the cake is coming on fine. Well, one of them is. The problem with decorating sponge cakes is that you have to do it relatively last minute - a couple of days before hand is ok, much more than that and you start to lose freshness. So I'm very happy that The Cake is at least partly fruit.
Not saying any more though. Will post pictures next weekend when it's all been eaten and Mr and Mrs Picperfic are happily ensconced in the Bridal Suite somewhere or other. (Going on honeymoon M?)
The birthday cake however is not even a mere picture in my imagination. Nothing inspiring has come forwards. Just don't know what to do.
Then after those cakes, I have my own birthday cake to make, 2 for my husband (he's going to be 50 and wants 2 parties) a christening cake, an anniversary cake and several birthday cakes.
Perhaps if I turn the computer off now I'll manage a few rows of knitting. Haven't so much as picked up the needles all week. Serious business.
