What day is it?

The 8th of August is hurtling towards me at warp speed.  I have a cake to design and make and a party to cater for. ...... "Piece o' Cake!" 
 Oh yeah, just one little hiccup --- 
It is a themed costume party for twins turning 21.

The cake is baked.  Fortunately, this year they were happy to have ONE cake (instead of one each) and they both wanted a 'good old fashioned' fruit cake - so that is now done and needs some time to mature.......smells good!

Today I got on the base layer of Marzipan (Almond Paste).  
The next few days will see the Top layer of (fondant) icing go on.

If you are lucky, I will give you a sneak peak at some of the elements that evolve as the cake is created over the next week.

(Watch this space......If I can get a decent photo of a round cake covered with white icing I will post it!)

  1. Fruit cake is goooood! I can't wait to see what you do with your fondant icing! I have dabbled in cake decorating and I know how much work is involved and how hard it is to get a fondant which tastes good and is thick enough to cover perfectly. Oooh this is exciting. Please do keep us posted!
