Hi all, apologies for the delay since my last post. Such a busy time with family visiting, and birthday season for us!
I’ll start from where I left off last time, which was my impending birthday 😊
As you can see, my amazing daughter in law made me a beautiful cake 🍰❤ and we had a family get together to celebrate.
I got some wonderful gifts 😍 including my Airbrush kit…yay! Some more cakey bits and bobs from my Amazon wish list which I’d shared with my nearest and dearest ❤
Amazon gift cards which I promptly made inroads into buying this lot!
PME Anodised Aluminium Round Cake Pan 6 x 3-Inch Deep https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B008AB8KIK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_taa_Blc3AbZN23EWP
Because I seem to use my 6″ tin the most and I only had the one 😊
Wilton SCISSORS FOR FLOWERS IN PLASTIC SCISSORS FOR FLOWERS IN PLASTIC, WHITE https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B004BQ3GEG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_taa_Nnc3AbCGC92B5
Because I am going to challenge myself and try making buttercream flowers 🌷🌸🌹🌺🌻💐

Because…well just because I needed them!

For an upcoming birthday cake 🍰🎂

To save the faff of swapping tips when piping 😊
Wilton Icing Colour Gel Paste Primary Colours Set – 6x 28g https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01I3K7VUU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_taa_Nuc3AbD0F0WMR
Because I really like Wilton colours and there were some different ones in this set that I didn’t have
Primrose Bakery Everyday (Exclud Can) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B015YX077I/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_taa_cxc3AbTE5D7D8
It was 99p… I couldn’t resist
The Fifth Elephant: (Discworld Novel 24) (Discworld series) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00354YA9K/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_taa_kzc3Ab6C9RTMD
And just to prove it’s not all about cake (mostly….but not all lol 😋) I also got this for an amazing 99p! If you’ve never read Terry Pratchett, this is a bargain but I don’t know how long it will stay at that price so grab it quick!
I also had a practice at doing buttercream rosettes with one of my new Wilton tips, the 1M. Now I know why it’s so popular, it almost does the work for you! I need to practice getting them all the same size, but the cake looked pretty anyway I think?
Last weekend, I also hosted a Stand Up To Cancer bake sale at my house. Although slightly disappointed with the turn out, I still raised £100. Many thanks to my friend Elaine Morris for helping out and making cake too, and to Abi, my daughter in law who couldn’t make it but donated a fruit cake, and joined us later on 😊
Last but not least, yesterday we celebrated my mother in law’s and my hubby’s birthdays. I made a very special cake for this. So special it deserves its own post!
So, for now
Stay safe and healthy
