what a difference a cake makes....

So sometimes I just wanna have a play.... and this was one of those days lol..

I wanted to try a birdcage cake as I love the vintage feel of them... so as I was building up the cake I realised what a nice two tier cake this would make too lol...

I love the vintage gooseberry green and cream together - although it took ages to attach all those pearls lol..

then I added the birdcage

and a few flowers just for a splash more colour... 

Hope you like it and thanks for looking xxx

Good morning... 

Well Sam (the wife) turned 40 in December so I said I would make her a cake (well I could hardly buy one now could I lol).  Sams favourite cake is Coffee and Walnut as it's what her Mom maid her every year.... gosh I had a lot to live up to lol!!

Well the cake was a success and even though i'm not a coffee lover I may have had a slice or two lol..

We also had two small parties - one for friends and a family meal...

This was her friend party cake... blue blue blues lol..

And her family meal cake...
