This was the trial run of the assembled cake, after taking this photo I added a little more pink shading to the Arum Lilies on the topper which you can see in closer detail further down on the photos taken by Alex on party day
Morning to you all, how's your weather ? It's been pouring here all night and no sign of giving up yet and the heating is a must today.
At long last I have some photos of the anniversary cake I made for our daughter and son in law for their surprise party a couple of weeks ago.
There had to be pink lilies and ivy to match her flowers and wedding dress which was also pink, the colour she wanted right from a little girl.

It's years since I did any sugarcraft as I gave it up when MS took over my fingers and it became too much of a worry with orders to complete and fingers that didn't always want to work. But having trawled around for a decent ready made cake and finding nothing that really appealed or otherwise cost a fortune I decided to get my fingers working again. I won't be making a habit of it mind you as it did take me ages to perfect all the flowers but I was fairly happy with the end result.
Everyone had a 'party bag' to take home in the form of a cup cake in a little pink box, tied with silver ribbon and a name tag all decorated with a sugar paste rose - I made about 60 of them
Thanks for taking a peek and hope you all have a good week.
