One of the things that has kept me busy over the last few weeks was making my Sister’s wedding cake. I have never undertaken anything of this size or importance but although a very stressful time this melted away when I saw the look on her face. She loved it!!
After much research I decided on a Madeira sponge. It’s a dense sponge that handles the weight of extra tiers well but keeps moist too. In the middle i used buttercream and strawberry jam. Mmmmmm.
Yes I did use all these eggs!
Don’t forget to grease your tins
Tin is wrapped in a newspaper blanket so the outer cake mix doesn’t cook to quickly.
Brought my friend along for the ride!
Had to get my Sister’s poodle on the cake!
Ignore the mess!
Tired but very proud of our achievement.
We had a fantastic time. My Sis looked like a Princess and the cake went down a treat!
Hello everyone! I don’t know if you’re fans of shellac but I wanted to do a mini review of my new shellac polish Bluesky light blue no. A101.
I really love the colour; a lovely summer pastel, very good coverage and super shiny!
The polish has been on for 9 days now and has held up pretty well apart from a small chip on my thumb caused by the removal of a price sticker.. Grrr!!
Here is the colour on the brush.
I have an array of colours from both CND and Bluesky and I really feel it’s down to the colour as to it’s staying power no matter what brand you’re using. Unfortunately this means it’s abit of a gamble but for just £5 for a bottle of Bluesky on Ebay you can’t go wrong!
I would definitely advise anyone to get this colour.
