The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award
This is my first post using Windows Live Writer. I’ve seen a few blogger talking about this in the last couple of days, so I thought I would give it a try since I already had the program. So far so good.
I have been awarded The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award by the lovely and talented, Jennifer Lane.
I am supposed to tell you you some things about myself but I’m sure you sick of hearing about me so instead I’m going to show you some of my latest sweet creations.
My nieces were visiting today before they travel to America for the summer. We had some after dinner treats.
These were for Eric’s bowling party a few weeks ago. The chocolate slices had popping candy inside.
A joint effort with my sister-in-law. This cake was over two feet tall and at least twenty pounds of sponge cake, buttercream and fondant. It had a one inch wooden dowel running up the centre to support the structure engineered by my sis-in-law. Each brick was individually indented and painted, and the roof sparkled.
My niece's first birthday cake. Sugar free carrot cake and vanilla cream cheese so minus the sugar paste the kids could indulge just a little.
On to passing the award. As some blogs are award free there is no pressure to join up.
