All Sorted

Thank you so much for all your help again and your lovely comments. Thankfully, with Anne's help and finding out I've been a bit of a plonker everything is all sorted out now. Sorry if I've made a right mountain out of a molehill, I'll try not to do it again.

Sally made a lovely comment about my cakes and this reminded me I haven't shown you any sugar craft for ages. It tends to go on in the background and I forget to include it so I thought I'd show you a photo of a flower spray I've been making for a Diamond Wedding Anniversary. Isn't that impressive, 60 years!!!!!


My Mum In Law has made the cake for her friends but asked me to make the spray. It was quite difficult to come up with something suitable but in the end I found this spray in my trusty Alan Dunn books of an Orchid and silver chillies and leaves. I've added some sparkle to the chillies for the diamonds!

Apologies for the poor photo, it's so difficult to get anything decent when you don't have a cake to put them on and the light was so poor I had to use a slight flash to get the sparkle but not wash the colours out.

Thank you for visiting and have a lovely weekend.

I do like the new name - a subtle change (so we know we're in the right place) but very effective.

Wow! What a stunning piece! Gorgeous colouring and so lifelike! 60 years of marriage is as breathtaking as your orchid! So glad you have managed to sort out your new name and header.

Ooo I do envy you your sugarcraft. This orchid is beautiful. My sister decorates wedding cakes and has tried to show me how to make some of the simpler flowers but I just don't have the patience.
