I'm still undecided whether to start using this site as my main blog or keep the other one on my website going, ummmm decision, decisions......... I Sometimes think it'd be nice to just have a place to be a bit more myself as obviously I have to watch what I say on my own website as customers can browse it, but then I really don't know if I have time to keep 2 up to date.
Well anyway, after a great weekend and demoing at a fab sugar group in Cardiff I think I've finally over come the sudden nerves I suffered at the training seminar, what a hoot we had and Ceri was there to give me a hand, what an angel he was. I'd got caught in traffic and was about 15mins late in arriving with people already taking there chairs as I arrived to set up. But after an initial flurry of activity I was given a cup of tea to calm myself ready for a giggle, OK so the dragon's head didn't fit, mmmmm took me a while to work out why (like the next day!) and I'd forgotten a couple of tools, nothing too major though, but it was all taken in it's stride and i don't think anyone noticed (NOT!!!).
I'm getting ready now for Exmouth BSG Exhibition on Sunday, I've a table there supporting the event and I'm going to do a bit of modelling, chatting, maybe a bit more modelling and then more chatting, and if I've time to have a bit of a shop before more modelling and chatting I'll be as happy as pig in muck! Can't wait and if you see me there then say "hi"
So is anyone ready for the holidays? The kids break up on Thursday from school and then we've got a whole 6 weeks to fill, I've some staggered holidays planned so as to make the whole lot go really quickly, I think it only works out that the first week and last week we're at home for the full week so I'm really looking forward to it!
Well I think that's all for now, I'll try to keep this blog posted, it's soooooo much easier to use than the other but we'll have to see what happens.

Think I got a little carried away with this one , really enjoyed doing the cats and wanted to cover the whole board and cake in butterflies and flowers. I broke loads of the butterflies and then looked at the cake and there was far to much happening for my liking so went round and flicked aload of flowers off, still think it looks a little cluttered but happier now
For my son who's going to be 8 on tuesday but is celebrating over the weekend with his cousins and family. Chances are you may not even know what 'Gogo's' are, but my son is mad about collecting them at the moment. They're 99p a packet and you get 3 little plastic figures and 3 stickers to put in your sticker book. We're on series 3 at the moment and the theme is explorers.
This cake was taken from the last theme of the sticker book, the city. I thought it was great colours and would translate well into a cake.
The cake is an 8" cake with and oval cut out of it and placed on the top. The 'stickers' are flowerpaste and rice paper, and the buildings are modelling paste that have been airbrushed. I modelled the big gogo, but the small ones are the actual plastic ones you buy

I've got my BSG Demonstrator training and I'm soooooo excited, I know a couple of people who will be there so I'm not feeling scared just can't wait, all I need to do now is try and find a nice passport photo of myself, argh! don't fancy my chances...lol.................
Hope you like the new cake pictures, have a great weekend what ever you're doing!
Going classic for this one, you'd never guess but I don't do many flowery cakes, not really my 'thing'. But I do occasionally enoy them, saying that I've another one next week too! lol

Made for my son last year for his 7th birthday, apparently there's some technical issues with it, like "he wears the watch mummy so can't be sat on it" :0O ........kids! don't you love 'em. lol
For a man who loves flying his model plane and can be found atop of a hill doing it.
The plane is made from flowerpaste and is inserted into a posy pic, (largest posy pic you ever did see , as I'd ran out of small ones! looks like a rabbit, lol)
