I'm back!

Hello again - did you miss me? Sorry I've been away for so long, life has been very busy in the Stashbasket Kitchen. But the cakes are now done for this week, so I'm allowed back on the computer. This cake is for Mike and Mandy - that's them on the side - they chose the design before you ask. Strange methinks, but they are very happy with it. (It's a gluten free chocolate almond cake underneath all that icing).

They didn't want a fussy cake - personally I would have like a few more somethings round the sides and on the top. But as I frequently discover, it's each to their own.

The other cake for this week has been Picperfic's wedding cake. She got married today (and my word was she excited!) I'll post some pictures of that one tomorrow. No, I really will.

And I'll probably be a bit more chatty. But for now I need some sleep. Also need to get ready to go out (I'm now beginning to regret not going on a very strict diet as none of my clothes seem to fit any more).

Oh why is chocolate so flipping good?

Yes, you have ben missed. Glad to see you have been productive and what a cake! No wonder you have been quiet. Now we'd all like to see the wedding cake soon please. Well done. Can I give you some Brownie points or would you just prefer the brownie! Sorry that wasn't fair. All the Best.

I think the cake is fab - I love the faces on the little characters!

Ooh, smashing cake, Michaela, as per.

.... I have a terrible urge to snap their little heads off though. Is that wrong??


ps. Before you lambast me, snapping the heads off a couple of marzipan people is quite quite different to smashing the head a bunny made of chocolate!
