I am already in the second day of my weekend – I do love days off (though would love them more if I hadn’t been waiting in for a parcel that never materialised). It’s almost 9.30 and I have been up for 2 hours and in those two hours I have finished whipping up some vanilla buttercream, decorated and packaged up a dozen cupcakes and tidied up my kitchen. I do love being productive but I guess it’s the sign of a busy mind that I can’t just “sit” and do nothing, like ever!
Today I am selling my first ever cake – someone saw a cake I had made for a friend to take in to work (it was her birthday but she is such an amazing friend I wanted to do something special so I made her a rich gooey mocha/cappuccino cake).
I am quite proud of the results though in the space of a few weeks I have moved from flowers like the ones on that cake to these:
Experimenting with all different types of tool and taking hours to do things showed me one thing about creating the perfect (well, almost) fondant/gum paste flowers…it’s all down to having good tools and the right ingredients.
Anyway, someone is coming to pick up my first ever commission cake this morning; I feel in part sick and happy (sick because what if they don’t like it and happy because I LOVE doing it)…
