one of the many million things on my to do list for today was marzipan the cakes for my hubby's sisters wedding which is in 2 1/2 weeks. I made the cakes a while ago, and they've been maturing nicely. so far so good.......
so this morning, first day back at school, get K and E ready, take annual first day back at school photo in the front garden, drop them off, where they are excited to see all their friends, and go running off with hardly a backward glance (sigh........), walk home, right cakes.
Cake 1 - spread with apricot jam, marzipan it, put it box. OK
cake 2 - this one is to be cut into 2 smaller squares to become the middle and top tier of the cake.
measure, cut.

not cooked


guess I'm going to Marks and Spencer's......


  1. Not cooked? Not good!!! Hope the rest of your day turned out fine!

  2. Aargh! I made the cake for my brother-in-law's wedding a month ago, and it was the most nerve wracking task of my adult life I think!!

    I didn't even attempt a traditional fruitcake as the icing and marzipan was worrying me. I made a tiered lemon & almond cake instead. Still terrifying!

    As long as there's something to cut for the photographs, you'll be fine. Good old M&S :o)

  3. Oh dear. But so glad you were able to take it in stride! K x
