Morning lovely Crafters and dear WOYWW friends. Another Wednesday rolls by and it'll be the last opportunity to sit here with a leisurely cuppa and have a potter around the desks on a Wednesday morning for a while since the schools break up this week here in Yorkshire. Next week, it'll be a mad posting and a quick whizz round the desks late into the night as demands on my time will be made by a practicing teenager!!!!
I'm really going to make the most of this week so here's my desk this morning.
As it had to be totally cleared and cleaned in honour of a cake last week I thought I'd take the opportunity to have a really good sort out and tidy up but it's taken longer than I thought and there is still lots to do.
The view the other way.
I found a box of cards I made many moons ago and have binned many of them to avoid future embarrassment but the pile in the front there have a chance of being revamped when I've got time.
I think I need to find some better ribbon storage too.
They are beginning to take over!!!!
If you want to share the delights of your desk with the world then you need to pop over to see the Desk Headmistress, Julia, HERE.
And lastly, I know you've been patient, so here it is. That Cake!!!!!!
The bottom two tiers are chocolate sponge covered in chocolate buttercream, a nightmare to work with, it gets everywhere and you have to clean up every last crumb. The top two are styrofoam, what a dream to cover. The tiers have alternate pink and orange piping around the base of each and the flowers are all fabric but I loved those huge pink gerbras.
So what do you think? I liked it in the end but am still not sure about the lime green ribbon. If it'd been mine and I wanted that colour I'd have wrapped it around the base of each cake above the piping. Still my lady was very happy with it and said it was exactly what she had envisaged so that's what counts.
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely Wednesday whatever you are up to. I'll be back later in the week with the H20 stamping tutorial. Thank you to all those who asked for one.
