I hope everyone's had a great, long weekend?!
It's Monday and instead of doing the serious amount of tidying I really should have spent my day doing, I was making cakes.
I've offered to make some fairy cakes for a girl who I work withs engagement party, now that I think about it I'm really not sure what possessed me to do such a thing because they all went a bit skew-whiff. Actually, I know exactly why I offered, because I love making cakes and really wanted the chance to make lots and lots, but like all of my plans its not really going to be the buttercream dream I was imagining.
She basically said just said PINK & BUTTERFLIES for a theme, something fit for a little girls party...so I said that I'd make some over the weekend so that she could see if we're on a similar wavelength and I'd bring them in tomorrow.
So, this is what happened
I cut out lots of butterflies from the fondant icing and the laid them in the seams of books in the hope they would dry at an angle...
...made the taster cakes...
...and then this is what happened next=
I do like them but they just aren't what I had envisioned. I think they would probably be fine for my little cousin but they don't look particularly polished (I'm thinking Joey's letter to the adoption agency in Friends when they think a child's done it)
Well, hopefully my friend will like them tomorrow but I will let you know either way!
What do you think of them? Family & friends can only be so honest...
