birthday cake is finished!!

I have slaved away and finally finished my daughters birthday cake - I hope she likes it. I am rather proud of myself to be honest and pleased with how its turned out! 

I now just have 24 hours to prepare food, pass the parcel and my mind for about 30 5 year olds at her party!!! 

Happy Friday people, have a fab weekend!

I've been a busy little bee this morning - I have baked the cake - well its in the oven while I'm chilling with a cheeky bacon butty and cuppa!   The rest of the characters are made  - I'm not too sure about little brown mouse, he's a bit fat.... but I'm sure she won't mind.....

Oops.... Birthdays and Busy-ness!

Big apologies to my followers! I've not updated my blog for aaaaages!!!  It's been a busy month for me I'm sorry to say, mostly work and gerneral life!  I've not had time for crafting much lately as life has just got in the way.... don't you just hate it when that happens!?!  I've had my birthday, dads birthday and mums birthday is tomorrow. 

My daughters birthday is the next week......  I made the foolish choice of asking her what birthday cake she would like for her 5th birthday party - The look of horror on my face must have been a picture when she asked for a Gruffalo cake!  I have made the Gruffalo to sit on top, just the cake to do now for her party on Saturday.... What do you think so far!?!  He's made out of fondant icing, I was pleased with how he turned out!  Will post pics of the finished item later in the week!
