mmmmmm Cake

I thought I would share with you one of my first hobbies. I don't do any of it much anymore so these are quite old photos(before I got my prettiness gene!)...
A cute snowman Christmas cake

I actually loved this cake at the time and still do. It looks so simple but that bow was a real pain(only now I have found out about sugar paste...all my cakes have been made with regular icing!)

My first ever Roses
mmmmmm Dinner party cake, divine
Dalek cake for a friends son

Mater from Cars, loved him and I believe it was the first one to be made and posted about as I could not find one cake like it at the time on tinternet!
Giraffe made a little bit too big lol!

My most recent cake and one of my all time faves!
My eldest sons 5th Birthday cake not many photos of this one, this is a photo before it was totally finished but you get the idea
Postman Pat cake for a friend

and because it is that time of year...
I Loved the lid for this coffin but little bug hands make BIG mess!

Another Fave of mine, made for my hubbys Birthday the first year we were together.

So there is one of my older hobbies, hope you enjoyed the pics :)
