A really time consuming cake, this one. I struggled for inspiration for how to create an office scene and came up with a polystyrene desk and stool. There were so many little bits that I wanted to add once I got going – the little glasses, a cup of tea (I always like my figures to be doing something rather than sitting there empty-handed) and an empty IN tray.
I’m not sure what has happened to the wording on this cake – I can promise it wasn’t wonky in real life! Some good news too – our camera has come back from being mended today! Hurrah, no more phone pics.
This is my Auntie Linda’s 60th birthday cake – she also retires at the end of September.
I’m going to have to get my thinking cap on for this Tuesday when my Mum retires – She’s already had cupcakes for the office but I’m thinking a nice fruit cake for when we can have daytime brews now!
There were some lovely entries in last week’s Cake of the Week.
and a Guiness Cake from Jackie Marum at JackieCakeStop
I’d love some more people to join in this week. Don’t forget they don’t have to be decorated cakes – disasters, cake recipes and mini cakes are all welcome.
