April gone already?? YIKES

Good grief April has come and gone already... just goes to show how time flies when you are having fun..
I have been playing with cake decorating. Something I have always dreamed of doing... I love the saying "having your cake and eating it too" LOL now its a reality
I was busy getting stuff together for a baby shower for my first grandchild that I threw at the end of April. and it was just full steam ahead for the whole month. Here is a pic of the cake I made for the occasion.

Cake made for Mikael's Baby Shower

The cake was a vanilla flavoured Madeira style with butter-cream frosting and a lemon curd filling, I made the ducks from white chocolate which I coloured with edible gel cols. The bubbles were piped butter-cream and Kool mints and rolled fondant pearls I made in my spare time .. it came out so much better than I had planned and I know its not doll related but it is creative LOL That's my excuse and I am sticking to it... I now have to find one of the cake I made for my daughters wedding last May it was my first real effort and It too was awesome...

My grandson is a doll and thats good enough for me LOL below is a pic of Mikael who is now 10 weeks old.

Gorgeous little man

Angelina Fibres

Angelina Fibers
How excited am I??? LOL I just got a small shipment of the BEAUTIFUL Metallic Angelina fiber Jellybean sampler kits in stock....and yes they are HOT FIXABLE.... They are just awesome! Each Kit contains 5 colours each weighing 1/10 of an ounce each with that being enough to have a good play.

I use the Angelina fibers in my doll making for wings and other stuff as the colours are just so vibrant and I have never seen anything like them making all my creations unique! But they can be used in quilting, scrap-booking and so much more...

They are little hard to photograph as they reflect the light a little too well LOL... but trust me they are beautiful rich colours.

the new colours included in the metallic range are....
  • plum
  • peony
  • hollyberry
  • fuschia
  • christmas green
  • charcoal
  • copper penny
