I forget whose blog I saw this idea on, but I loved the thought of it and wanted to have a go. My friend's 50th birthday provided the perfect opportunity. I'm really pleased with the way this has worked out. Rubbish framing, but it was only £1.89 (so much better than our local framers who would no doubt have charged over £50 for a similar effect).
Then faced with the problem of my neighbour's golden wedding, I had another go, and I like that too. Oh yes, and here's their cake
This cake was ordered by Doreen's mum - a 96 year old lady still living on her own. I spoke to her last week. She was a bit tired - she had just driven the car into the garage and scratched it on a tree at the side. This tree had long since annoyed her so she decided to saw it down. It took her 2 trips to the dump to get rid of it all.
I'm not sure which made me smile most, the fact that's 96 and still driving, or that she's 96 and sawed a tree down, or that she's 96 and had to make 2 trips to the dump on her own. I have many visions of her struggling with trying to see over the steering wheel whilst being hindered with twigs and leaves! She's only little, but blimey, I hope I'm going as well as that at her age!!!
Update - I got it wrong, Doreen's mum is 98!!!!
