WOYWW and a few cakes

Happy WOYWW. Here we are again at midweek. It'll be the weekend again before we know it. Where do the weeks go?

Here's my workspace this Wednesday still with lots of Christmas cards on the go. I've spent the day Slicing snowflakes!!!! and staring out of the window while the machine was doing its stuff watching the weather changing down the valley. One minute gorgeous sunshine, the next rain.

I also thought I'd share the view I have out of the window and the reason why today has been a very frustrating Wednesday. Yesterday two lovely Gas men arrived to dig this hole at the bottom of our drive to repair a gas leak. They had to turn our gas supply off but promised at 4pm yesterday afternoon it would be back on within 4 hours!!!!! At 4pm today I was making my 3rd phone call to see where the engineer was and when the gas would be back on. Having no hot water for 24 hours is not funny!! Happily he arrived at 5pm and we are now fighting for the shower and have had a lovely cooked dinner. No spinny dinner tonight.

Lots of lovely WOYWW's have asked for some piccies of my cakes so here are a few. They are all Wedding cakes apart from the large flower which was DD's 7th birthday cake.

I hope I haven't bored you to death with them all and if you are wondering who these mystery WOYWW's are then you need to pop over to Julia's blog and all will become clear.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the week.

Flippin heck Lisa, those cakes are just amazing!

We have a girl who uses a slice at the crop and it works well, but I think I'll stick to my Expression!! You are obviously a tidy worker looking at your desk!

I suppose getting the kettle on for shower isn't an option?

Hi Lisa, you already know I think your cakes are gorgeous. I love the one with all the daisies on.

Lots of nice light onto your desk and your stool is lovely. Did you decorate it?

Sympathise over the no hot water situation as my boiler (which is only 2 years old) keeps playing up and it's driving me mad!

Hi Lisa

Still rain at this end, when it starts in tghe Fens it never knows when to stop.

Beautiful sugarcraft, especially love those roses. How I wish I still had the dexterity to do them, I used to so enjoy it. But seeing your lovely creations are the next best thing.

Jules said...

Wow Lisa you are one very talented lady.

Not only do you make gorgeous paper creations you make fantastic cakes too. I love the pink roses!!!

Just one quick question .. .. is that basket under your super organised desk an empty ironing basket? LOL!!!

Love Jules xx

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

OMG!! I am so impressed with your cakes. They are gorgeous. You do great work. When I think of decorating cakes, I think of putting cake frosting in a bag and squeezing it out to make squiggles. Since I have arthritis, I have never had any grip. Now I might actually be able to decorate a cake at least ONCE in my life. Happy WOYWW (#1)

Hope Jacare said...

Artyjen said...

Lisa, your cakes are fantastic. The daisy one is my favourite, but Freya's flower is beautiful too. It amazes me how realistic your roses are. You must have endless patience.

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh fabulous Lisa - no wonder you're so busy - those cakes are a dream - bet the couples were overjoyed.

Paula said...

Amazing cakes, Lisa!
Sorry to hear the annoying workmen ruined your day. Though it is hard to call them "work" men as they seem to spend more time staring into the hole than actually working in them!!

Kathy said...

Hi Lisa, catching up at last with some blog-hopping and I find some gorgeous cakes to make me go wow!. They really are fab - what a clever bunny you are.
Grrrr about the gas men - I hope by now everything is fixed and the hole is all filled in.
We had a wonderful week in Yorks - we were soooo lucky with the weather - mind you we did have torrential rain, bright, warm sunshine and then a hailstone storm - all in the space of a bout three hours one day!
catch you again soon

Kim Piggott said...

Phew! So glad you got your gas at last what a nightmare!
Your cakes are utterly stunning you are so clever!

Beryl said...

Hi Lisa - thank you so much for visiting - I know I've been very remiss over the last few months. Been very busy with the house and garden but once he weather changes and I'm stuck indoors I hope to get back into it again. I love your garden and cake photos and I don't mind seeing your stool again at all. It's fab and I'd love one just like it.
