I've been baking and decorating cakes and cupcakes since my son was born 18 years ago and now I'm doing the same for my 6 year old and others. I love eating and baking desserts, but my favourite thing to do is create a little piece of art on an edible canvas. Like all mums my days are always busy running around for everyone else so when I get some 'me' time I relax by either baking or making sugarpaste decorations for cakes and cupcakes. For those other mums out there who love everything CAKE I'll post some recipes,ideas and photos of decorations that can be handmade at home...sorry if I don't post every day it's sometimes hard to escape into solitary!!!

Had a quiet day at home with 4 yo whose still getting over her flu.
Got a bit bored sitting watching TV, so decided to quickly cover cake board with
wrapping paper to see what it would look like. Photo is not that great because it's
late in the afternoon and it's been a cloudy day anyway. The 3 black cake wrappers
are handmade...I suppose it's obvious...not as good as the laser wrappers.
Glued diamontes on one and ribbon & small buckle on the other to see the effect.
Have to finish covering cake board...have no white/black ribbon at home.
Time to go...dinner to be cooked.
