Happy New Year - A new organised me!


I am starting 2009 as I mean to go on - with lots of projects on the go and lots of news years resolutions that will NOT be broken! One of them being to be Mrs Organised and to update thishere blog a LOT more regularly!

I am showing today a cake that I did at the end of November. I have done a number of cakes for this family and love that they encourage something a bit funky but give me pretty much free reign on the design. That is another resolution for this year - to produce more funky cakes and offer something a little bit daring or different. Not sure how the rest of St Helens will take this on board but time will tell!

Every bit on this cake was edible - I had to think a bit in advance to make sure the 'ribbons' on the top were dry enough to hold their shape - I made these out of 50/50% flower paste and fondant. It was only when I had finished that I remembered I have some really cool black and sparkly ribbon that would have looked brill around the edges of the cake but never mind!

I would love to know what people think of the design and what resolutions are out there for 2009!
