Hi guys! I managed to sleep from 2am till 5am then 6am till 10am and I'm sooo happy I managed that! Honestly feel like I have someone sitting on my chest. Breathing is difficult. Docs reckon it's a side effect to my tonsilitis and my chest is clear. Hmmmmmmm. If I did have a chest infection I'd hate to see it!

Hubby and I are watching twin peaks this weekend. Been off work since Wednesday with my chest and we've just decided to have a proper lazy duvet weekend with lots and lots of naughty food. Pretty sure he's gonna let me order a takeaway tonight too! Hehe.
All I've eaten is chocolate pretzels, chocolate mousse, homemade cookies, egg bagels and I've managed to pull a nice dinner out of my hat each night to claw it back in haha!

Twin peaks is awesome though, gonna marathon it today I think!

So next cake is a Cardiff city t shirt and I'm doing a two tier Minnie Mouse with 24 cupcakes for my niece in London so will end up doing a 4 hour drive with that HAHAHAHA *cold sweats* that's why I got the cupcake tower. Can't believe it was so cheap!

Tiddy I'm glad your feeling better let's hope it stays away for you today! Bloody thing must be a nightmare!

Maisie I'm so sorry about your boiler! It happened to me last year. Soaking wet bedroom argh! I hope you manage to salvage a lot of stuff!

Nanny it's just a piping course. I'm gonna go with beginner as we were taught how to make piping bags haha, something that I'm happy about cause I'm ****e at it!

I hope I haven't missed anyone out!

Well, the christening cake is done. I'm not gonna do my usual thing where I list what I hate about it, mainly because you'll all shout at me...!! icon_wink.gif

Text a photo to the client (my BFF) and she's happy. icon_smile.gif

Hi everyone rubbish weather here today as was yesterday.

 

 Marvel love both cakes, though the black one is my fav. I think your ruffles turned out well they look good you've done a great job on both.

 

Tiddy glad to hear you had a pain free night hope it stays like that for you. Lovely brush embroidery i so need to try that.

 

Maisie hope your boiler problems are sorted and not to much damage was caused.

 

Kuuushi glad you got some sleep a duvet day sounds just what you need.

 

Nanny have fun shopping with Sarah.

 

Hope everyone's pets and kids are doing better and that everyone's deliveries go well. Sorry if I've missed anyone

Hi everyone,

 

this is my 3rd attempt to post here but keep getting interrupted. 

 

Mel, sorry to hear about your mum. Hope she is well soon x Also hope your cake woes end!

 

Lizzy, thank you. Yes I'm very happy my friend is home,  but I am a bit paranoid it will happen again (fluid build up in her brain). But give it several weeks and I'll really relax then!

 

Siany, we are all singing 'Everything Is Awesome' in my house and we can't get the song out of our heads. I really liked the Lego Movie- really funny :)

 

Kuushi, I could do with a piping course. Your RI work is fab. I made this choc mud cake to bring to my aunt's house today, and decided to pipe a shell border. I had to redo it quite a few times to get anything decent. Still not happy with the final result but much better than my first few tries:

 

 

It's got raspberry buttercream filling and ganached on the outside and I can't wait to have some later. Mud cakes definitely rise more than my normal choc cakes. This has only 3 layers (I left out the 4th layer cos it already looked quite big as it was) and with 3 layers, 2 layers of filling and the ganache the cake is 3.75" high!!

 

I'll catch up with the other posts when I've got more time, until then hope everyone is well :)

I salvaged the one thing I kept in the airing cupboard that I would've been gutted to lose. Needless to say I'm finding it a new home now. I hope the wet patches in the living room dry out and I can paint over them. Well the ceiling and the coving anywY, I just hope the pattern on the wallpaper is busy enough to hide any marks cos I'm not redecorating the whole room. My bedroom is next, jo's inspired me.

Beautiful christening cake m4rvel, no wonder your friend is pleased. My favourite part is the ruffles actually and you said you weren't very good at them. Nothing wrong with them, I think they're lovely.

Glad you had a good night tiddy. Hopefully it's a sign it's going away at last.
I don't plan on covering a whole round cake, just sticking a few squares on it. I've seen one (pretty sure it was here) I'd like to take inspiration from (shamelessly steal!) that I think is more within my capabilities. So if whoever made the round one could re post it to save me trawling I'd be very grateful. If whoever made it doesn't mind me copying that is. I wish I could remember who's it was. Jo I think. Or roxy maybe.

Jean your mud ake looks delish, nothing wrong with the piping as far as I can see, looks really neat. I love mud cake.

Hi everyone,

 

Hope all are well. :)

 

Lovely cakes everyone. ;-D

 

Tiddy, glad you had a pain free night and hope you continue getting better. 

 

Barbara, enjoy shopping with your daughter today. Its raining around here which I am not complaining at all!!! :grin:

 

Mel, hope your delivery went well. 

 

So, I delivered my cake too. And set it up at the venue. It was beautifully decorated but the table for the cake was near the windows, so didn't get any good photos.

Hi bashini, I'm not complaining about the rain either, anything that's not hot is fine by me icon_smile.gif
I see what you mean about the position of the cake but you can still see how beautiful it is and the separators look lovely,

Quiet on here today isn't it?
post #14891 of 17778
Hi everyone, have fun shopping you all say? You kidding? I'm knackered!

Brilliant cakes everyone.

Love your wedding cake Bashini.

Aw Maisie sorry about your boiler.
Tiddy, glad you had a pain free day.

I'm back! And smiling icon_smile.gif Delivery went well, luckily I didn't get caught in the awful rain we are having while taking cakes from car to venue lol as I realised halfway there I'd forgotten to bring a brolly!! The Groom survived the trip too, surrounded by a big layer of bubble wrap! Really hope they liked it, the only sad thing about some deliveries is not seeing the people who actually ordered the cakes.

Here are the pics:

Love the christening cake Marvel, really pretty and I love the doggy! The cake delivery gods are all yours tomorrow, they did the trick for me today icon_smile.gif

Bashini that's really lovely! Love the top ball arrangement, how did you get it so nice and round?

Oh no Maisie your poor house! Floods are the worst as the water goes everywhere :/ Hope you can get everything fixed soon x

Siany I love lemon Madeira, it's my go to lemon cake, layered with lemon buttercream and lemon zest, yum! If you've got leftover white choc ganache, I mix in some lemon extract (the alcohol Neilsson one) with mine to make lemon ganache and use that to cover my lemon cakes! I'd love an agbay, just not got anywhere to keep it! I'd definitely go Kenwood over KA, I researched and found the same as you about the motors etc, and from what I've read Kenwoods are bulletproof, I love mine!

Kuushi hope you are ok, that doesn't sound nice at all but glad you got a bit more sleep. x

Hi everyone else, don't want to miss anyone but also don't want to add worlds longest post lol! Off to the pub for dinner in a bit, hubby's treat icon_biggrin.gif
post #14893 of 17778
Thanks everyone!icon_smile.gif

Maisie, sorry I missed your post about the boiler. Hope you get all sorted soon. icon_smile.gif

So Barbara, did you buy anything or was it just your daughter who bought stuff?

Mel, your cake is gorgeous!!! icon_smile.gif Glad all went well. Regarding the flowers on the top, I used a 5" round cake card and a big lump of sugar paste in the middle. And then stuck the roses first around and then filed the top. Then added the filler flowers. Hope it make since. icon_smile.gif

Siany, I love lemon cake too. But not the Madeira unfortunately. Mich Turners cake is fabulous too! icon_smile.gif

Kuuushi, glad you got bit more sleep last night and hope you get better soon too. icon_smile.gif
