Hope you all had a good week. Monday was taken up with a crop session. We usually do one at my place on Fridays, however, since I had two cakes to do, we changed it to Monday. Just a few of us - eating, chatting, having a laugh, and sometimes, even getting one or two layouts done. I'm usually having too much fun to actually finish a layout, but I always do finish it later.
This week has been filled with baking and caking, so I'm going to bombard you with a few pictures of the cakes I made. I did a batch of M&M cookies for a Red Cross charity bake. These cookies are so yummy - crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside. They bake up so well and are very easy to make.
If you'd like to try out this recipe, I got it from here. I substituted the chocolate chips for the M&Ms and left out the nuts. Do try the original recipe too.
Daisy with Balloons
This was based on a cake by The Cake That Ate Paris. The client loved the design and wanted it replicated, but with a Daisy Duck. I think it worked out pretty well. The inside is vanilla cake with chocolate buttercream.
Here's the top view.
The birthday girl loves ballerinas, so what's better than a pretty cake with flowers, hearts and a little ballerina sitting on top. This cake was chocolate with chocolate buttercream.
This is my first ballerina - I still need a lot of practice for my figurines.
Next week's cake fell through, so hopefully, I'll be able to do more scrapbooking instead.
