This week has been crazy! A close friend of mine married her partner of 10 years on Saturday, and I had the pleasure of baking their wedding cake. I have only done character cakes before, so when Sarah and Graem asked me if I would make their cake, I was more than a little nervous. After giving me some general ideas, the flavour and creative aspect was left to me - and this was the result. White chocolate cake with lemon Mousseline filling, iced with a white chocolate buttercream. The bride and grrom wanted something simple and elegant, and told me they weren't afraid of colour - so I did a periwinkle blue icing and textured it to look like plaster, and added fresh flowers to match their decor. I am so happy that that they loved it! The guests were intrigued by the blue cake.
Baking kept me busy, but I did find time to finish a couple of knitting projects also.
First, I finally added a drawstring to the ...a time to dye "Songs of Meditation" newborn longies I knit a while back. These are going to be sent as a gift to a friend who is expecting this winter.
Also, I finished up another tester for a fellow knitter - Hippy Pippy's "Intergalactic". I love how they turned out!
