Christening Cake

November 19th, 2004

This was made specially for my first nephew, and was one of the last cakes I made before leaving Australia.  Looking back, I am really thankful that his name is Ben, as it would have taken so much longer to make enough building blocks to build almost any other name. I wish the travel between Australia and Scotland was shorter, that way I could make it home to make more cakes for my niece and nephews.  It’s just fortunate that I am from a family of talented ladies who are more than capable of making wonderful cakes.

Assorted Christmas cakes

December 25th, 2003

So, I went slightly nuts this year and made a few Christmas cakes.  Made using Mum’s fruitcake recipe for that traditional Christmas feel. One for each of my sisters, one for my parents, and one for my sister’s work.  A  bit of a crazy time, but nice to put a personal touch to Christmas.

This is the first time I experimented with modelling people.  It was fun, and I am sure that I will improve with practice and patience.
