after yesterdays cake disaster I needed to find some positive things to think about regarding this wedding we're going to/helping organise/supposed to be helping cater for before I messed up the cake...........

so here are some of the many sugar daisies I've made to decorate the cake, the plan is to have rows of the little sizes around the tiers, and a cascade of all the sizes tumbling down one side. My confidence in my ability to manage this is currently at an all time low, but I'm hoping that if I manage to get all the bits safely to Scotland ( I've only got to pack everything to survive a 8 hour drive and a trip on a car ferry, no problem) then a large glass of wine will help with the assembly process.......

and here's a shot of Miss K with a practise hair do, one of the plans is to french plait the top bit (well her auntie is going to do that, she's better at them than me, but she doesn't know yet....) and then leave a pony tail, which will be curled. Plan B is to make 2 little plaits, and bring them round the back to made a little crown, but then I think the length of hair will be too long to curl, and Miss K thinks she might want curls, and then she changes her mind.......

and here's my borrowed dress, back from the dry cleaners, and all ready to wear,

I've been trip trapping round the house all morning in my new shoes trying them out, and working out if I'll get blisters.

tomorrow we go to collect the wedding dress, and then go and buy lots of lovely food for the buffet, oh and a new cake...


  1. Good luck with the final preparations - I'm sure it will all be perfect. The sugar flowers look lovely. Have fun!

  2. The flowers look fabulous, and I'm sure they'll be fine on the journey and look amazing on the cake! K x

  3. Looks as though you've been working really hard and achieving stacks fir the wedding. Was sorry to hear about the cake but those flowers are lovely and your idea for using them to decorate the cake sounds gorgeous. Hope it's a magical day.

  5. Your flowers look gorgeous and I'm sure the cake will look perfect!

  7. I'm sure the cake is going to be beautiful judging by the wonderful flowers you've made.....that's quite a journey you've got to make with it all but I'm sure it'll be worth it and you'll have a lovely time.
