Cakes, Bakes, and Me

Cinderella got her man…and cake!

The show is over for another year πŸ˜” but what a show it was! Sell out audiences and amazing feedback from all…. including the local press.

As usual, after the final night we had a little party for the kids, with the Director acting as DJ and playing songs from past and present shows, finishing up with this year’s opening number ‘Mr Blue Sky’.

Every year I think it can’t get any better, but every year it does! The set this time round deserves a mention all of its own. Either side of the stage extension were two revolving turrets, and we also had a rotating stage set! An amazing design by Edward Munday, our Director (and one of our ugly sisters!) and built by Edward, Bevan, Danny, Dan and Darren, with help from Bev and Rebecca. I don’t know how they managed in the time we had, but they did, and it certainly paid off 😊

Here are a few photos from our last night, plus one of the cake I made. I’m a bit disappointed I haven’t got any of the ugly sisters as they were a sight to behold! (I’m the Queen by the way, Prince is my real life son James, and Cinderella my daughter in law!)

The cake was a vanilla sponge with white chocolate buttercream, covered in a marbled effect fondant using Renshaws decor ice in white, and Wilton’s black gel food colour. I added a little CMC to the top of the turrets.

James and Abi as the Prince and Cinderella

Now what am I going to do with myself? Make more cake obviously 😁😍😘

Until next time

Stay safe and healthy
