Thanks...  I sent her the email.  The thing is, I think doing what we do, I suppose we're almost trained to notice the slightest of imperfections?      And here's the cake for later today....   
Non-cake related dilemma.   Lovely lady who has designed the invitations, table plan, table menu/running order cards etc for my son's Bar Mitzvah.   I'm driving her mad with my OCD amendments!!!  There were quite a lot on the table plan!   I can't help it.    The table menu cards are all done and awaiting my OK to go to print (after me asking her to remove a tiny circle on one of the images, because it was bugging me and changing the title of a speech from "My Big...
Sorry, Maisie...  missed this when I posted just now. No.  LOL!!!  See above!
Slowly, Mel!! This morning, I had a hair appt (gotta cover that grey!!) and then once I'd got back and made my son lunch (he was poorly - got sent home from school....  nearly had to trek up to north London to get him from school, but turns out another girl who lives a couple of roads away was going home, too...  so Student Support Manager asked if there was any chance her mother would drop Daniel home, too! LOL!) it was getting on a bit!  I baked the egg-free cutting cake...
Once the surfboard was completely set, I turned it over and attached a wire (usually, my 'glue' of choice for this is royal icing, but as the recipient has an egg allergy I used Candy Melts).  I put a decent amount on the back and then settled the wire into it.  Once dry, I glued a piece of sugarpaste over it to make it look neater (and to doubly secure it).  As the top tier of the cake is a dummy, I'm not concerned about sticking a wire in it.  If it had been a real cake,...
I haven't been brave enough to put the surfboard on the cake yet!  I will later, though...  want to make a palm tree to go on the top tier, too, so will position them both at the same time. Nope, no seashells will adorn this cake!    It's not so much the £10 a paid for the mould, it's the fact that my friend's son specifically mentioned how much he liked them when he saw them on another cake.  I honestly think that it's been accidentally thrown away...  either hubby or the...
That moment you realise that you should have made a hole in the dummy top tier BEFORE the entire cake was assembled and fully decorated.... Need to attach something to the back of a gumpaste surfboad then stick it in the 'cake' (so the surfboard stands straight on the top!!! B*gger!)   *sigh*
He's cute and you instantly know what he is!!!    
If you could all say a little prayer to the cake gods or have a word with the cake fairies to help me find the brand new, still in its packet sea shell mould that was delivered last week, I'd be ever so grateful.   I've looked.   Hubby's looked.   I'm now starting to wonder whether it may have been thrown away (in the envelope it was delivered it)...  when my boys help to 'tidy' if it's not 110% obvious what it is or where it goes, there's the risk they bin it.  I'd...
Thanks, ladies.   I have absolutely no idea what make they are...  the box for the compressor doesn't even have a make!!  There's a model number - I'll see what I can find if I Google it...   This looks like it (without the manufacturer name on the side)   http://www.airbrushsupplyonline.com/compressors/min-baby-elephant-airbrush-compressor-as-16-oil-free   So not the most expensive of models, LOL!  No idea at all what the airbrush/gun bit is, though.  I'll take it...
