Birthday Girl...

Hey Everyone...

Wow it's been a busy week! I am so sorry I have been so sparse in my blogging! Things have been so hectic what with the wedding being only..... 5 weeks away! I cannot believe it! Anyway that's for another time!

Today I wanted to blog about a special cake I made for a very special 6 year old! My lovely eldest niece turned 6 last week, and to celebrate we all went to London Zoo on Sunday!

Although the weather wasn't great, my two nieces and nephew had a great time seeing all the animals! 

My sister asked me to make her a special cake... her favourite... Strawberry shortcake!

It was the first time I had used icing to make shapes without cutters, so I was rather nervous. The fiance printed out a template for me and I got going!

It was actually really fun - I loved seeing the character come together...

I used pipe-able icing for the details and also piped my first ever edging - I think it looks rather professional!

I used some alphabet cutters from the new 'Cake Decorating' magazine, which my lovely father-in-law to be has subscribed me to as a belated birthday present. And I used some strawberry flavoured buttons which my sister-in-law to be gave me for Christmas! I even used my homemade jam from last year to fill the middle of the home baked cake! 

My niece loved her cake - and she also loved the monogrammed cushion I made for her! I really love making homemade gifts for the people I love!

Love Jewel xXx

P.S. Tomorrow is a big day! I go for my final wedding dress fitting and if it doesn't need any altering I get to take it home! Eeeeeeee!

P.P.S I have TWO giveaways at the moment - get in quick!
