This week I got my dream mixer. Ahhhhhh - she's a beauty. For weeks (maybe months) I've been looking at colour charts, booklets, internet etc etc. Which colour should I get? A red one to match my tablecloth? (how decadent). A black one to match the worktops? (too much blending), a brushed silver one? (too much polishing). Instead I finally decided on classic cream. Bearing in mind I don't sell enough cakes to buy a different colour each year, I felt the classic cream may last me a lifetime (that's what I told Huffle anyway).
I have been commissioned to make a fake wedding cake. When I say fake, I mean that the cake is real and so was the wedding, but it has been and gone - unfortunately we weren't able to attend as it was in the America. The happy couple have come home for a few weeks so a cake was required. I modelled the couple on top of the cake on their wedding pictures. Hope they are happy with the results. (The groom kept getting fatter and fatter - which is nothing like real life eh Mr Pickle?). He also kept falling over - was he drunk?
CONGRATULATIONS to Mr & Mrs Pickle.
It is also Mr Pickle's birthday so I made some cup cakes for him. They have glitter on them (I think he'll like that touch!
Actually Mum piped these - she can't pipe she says - I think she can now. She has now been given the official title of ASSISTANT CHEF.
