So, what do you want? The good or the bad? I think….the bad news should come first…hopefully then the good news can make up for it. It’s once again the time of the month for July’s DB challenge. However, after much thought and consideration, I’ve decided to opt out of this month’s challenge. Being unemployed means every cent counts. When the challenge was first announced I was really excited. However, I needed a reason and an occasion to make this cake. None came, so in the end, I decided I was not in a position to spend extra money or something which would most likely go to waste. I will however, attempt this challenge the instant I’m given an opportunity.
I know that many will visit the site today in anticipation of July’s challenge. So…for the good news, I’ve decided to post up the few cake orders I’ve been busy with in the last couple of weeks.
First up is a Tiramisu I made for Krys’s colleague’s husband. I opted for a more general sorta design as the cake was to be cut up into small pieces and served as dessert.
Next, was a Chocolate Banana Cake. This was my first time making chocolate butterflies and I had lotsa fun. It was obviously for a girl as I seriously doubt any guy would appreciate a cake decorated in butterflies.
The next was my pride and joy! Haha! 🙂 But seeing that up till now, I’ve been mastering the art of using chocolate decorations in most of my cakes, I’ve decided it was time to work with sugarpaste. As this was a Mississippi Mud Cake for a 6 year old girl, teddy bears and lotsa pretty, colourful gifts should not go wrong.
