Birthday weekend bonanza...

First up was BIL - for whom I made a light choc sponge and this is intended to look like a bottle top, cake tasted good and I was pleased with overall finish. I also tried out some flooding - which would have gone a lot better had my royal icing been stiffer to start with, however the end result was all that mattered and I'm pleased with that too.

Next up was Mum's birthday cake - a rich fruit cake fully marzipanned and fondant iced - this was great to practise using a tappit to make the letters and the flowers were using my punch. Picture quality could be a lot better, it was very late at night and I should have taken some more when I was rested and in natural daylight!
