Awwww - that's lovely!!!!!!   Don't knock it.  After almost 19 years, I'd take any romantic gesture I could get!!!!!!!
*sigh*   I'd have bet my bottom dollar I had yellow cupcake cases.   Nope.   My local store (well, Romford - 20 minute drive) hasn't got any.  I called Hobbycraft and they said they have some mustard-yellow ones.  They'll have to do, I guess.  But I'm sulking.  They're for lemon meringue cupcakes.  I wanted a lovely bright sunshine yellow!!!!!   Friend brought me some of the white paper lolly sticks that I need - but they're MUCH smaller than what I really wanted...
LOL!  Seriously????? Well, hello neighbour! I'm off the Woodford Avenue between Clayhall and Gants Hill!!
Yes, it was definitely 'scented' she said.   However, it wasn't a genuine enquiry...  it was an acquaintance saying "how much would YOU charge for this cake?" - as in, she's at a wedding and couldn't believe the price!  I didn't realise that at first though.    I gave her a 'ball park' figure.   When she told me what the groom's mother paid for the cake, I nearly fainted.  EXACTLY four times what I quoted (and I wasn't being cheap because I know her!!)   Oh how the...
I've just had someone ask me for a 3 tier cake - the bottom tier to be strawberry scented sponge and the top two lavender scented sponge.   I haven't come across this before...  any ideas?
Where about in London are you?  :o)
Thank you for all your good wishes.   It turned out fine in the end!   I got up at seven and filled, marzipanned and sugarpasted the bottom tier.   I then put the 9" dummy on it (which should have been fruit cake...  that was just in a box to be taken with separately!)   Then the 7" choc orange cake went on.   Dh drove to the venue and I had the top tier with the models in a box on my lap and I assembled when we got there.   All was fine in the end.  Spoke to...
Thank you!   Well in the morning "all" I have to do is fill and cover the 11" cake.   Stack all 4 tiers (albeit two of them are now dummies!)   Fill and cover the 5" cake that they're taking home with them.   And attach the lace and ribbon.   And attach the roses.   I'm getting up about 7-ish (it's 1.30am now) and have to leave by 11.30am at the latest.  11am-11.15am would be better.   Night night! x x x
Hi folks...  sorry been a bit AWOL, but I've been up to my eyes with 'stuff'...  kids' appointments at school, hospital - plus I've been caking....    I didn't get to bed until 3am last night.  Just don't ask!!!!!!!!   Had the nightmare of all nightmares today.   I'd stacked tomorrow's wedding cake.  Hubby got in from work (very early - what a blessing!) and said "that's not straight"...  so I looked and the bl**dy thing was starting to COLLAPSE!   O.M.G!  That's...
Thanks for posting the pic, guys.   LOL - that's so funny!!!!!  And clever!
