Things have been CRAY!
(that means crazy by the way)
but I promise I will try and get a new post ASAP
I've been working on my decorating skills
if you follow me on insta-gram then you would probably know that already (wlizardbreath is my username there)
on the weekend, I whipped up a batch of Royal Icing and got to practising my flower pipping... I made lilacs (I piped over 200 tiny little flowers), 2 dozen Daffodils, roses in 3 different colours... STILL not great, but they are getting better, and I made some Chrysanthemums... Those are hard... maybe easier in butter cream? I'll have to play a little more with them
So on Sunday, I made a cake (a 1-2-3-4 Vanilla Cake)... but it was kind of dry, and I won't be making that again..
I whipped up a batch of butter cream (I need Butter cream tips... Will I get more flavour if I attempt a Swiss or Italian Meringue butter cream?? The simple stuff just doesn't cut it for me any more), and covered my cake in a light sky/teal blue, 3 large lilacs, and some green (obviously) leaves, and then a darker teal blue on the edges... My edge piping needs work too
I also practised some basket weave pipping too... Pretty easy when it is a flat cutting board... probably going to be harder once i try to do the side of a cake.
Anyway, Once things settle down a little around here, I will get you a new post as soon as possible... and I'll try to get a few pictures of my cake and flowers on here (but I made a bad and forgot my phone in my locker at work... and all the pictures are on there)
I'll be back... I promise!
