In the past..

I thought this morning, since this is a blog about me and my cakes, that I should post some photos of other cakes I have made. I have made quite a few more than this, but back then, didn't think to photograph them. Amelia's Number 3 cake.
The request was for white chocolate mud cake, pink and girly.

The top layer was actually the top layer of our wedding cake

My first cupcake sale!

Yesterday I completed my first cupcake order! It was for a 30th Birthday, and basically they had to be chocolate mud cake, and boyish, oh and 30 of them. The rest was up to me.

So I coloured some RTR icing, rolled it out, got out my cutters and set to work. I managed to get all of the decorations cut out by Tuesday afternoon, they were quite easy to do. I made the cupcakes yesterday morning, iced and decorated yesterday afternoon, and they were collected this morning.
How they were to be set out.
I quite like just these ones on their own too.

Off to the park!

It was such a lovely day today, so my good friends Rach, Jillian & I decided to take the kids to Maitland Park. The older kids went on the play equipment and the swings, whilst Harrison stayed on the picnic rug, played with his toys and tried to eat every bodies food. I took my camera, but the kids weren't really in the mood to pose. Rach took a fruit platter and some cordial, it was yummy.I love this photo of Harrison!HarrisonKeenanAidan

My messy little man.

The last few months have been filled with independence for Harrison. He loves doing things himself. He is such a little man these days. Part of this independence is feeding himself. For me it has been hard because I hate messes (or I hate cleaning them up), but I have had to forget about the mess and let the man do his thing. It's been a few months since he will even attempt to let us help him. If we spoon feed him, he just pulls the food out of his mouth, and smooshes it onto the highchair tray, the scrapes it back up and eats it again. It's just gross. He now has a bath after most meals, as it's easier than wiping him down.

This photo was taken the night before his 1st birthday. I love it.
