Evening my beautiful foodies,
Long time no blog. I know, I know, it is shocking! It has been a rocky few months of up and down, cakespiration and life evaluation, but I am back and fingers crossed, I am here to stay. You guys voted for more foodie tips, lets share! Caketastrophies to fabulous successes, sharing is caring and food is love.
Me, little miss piggy in Costco!
The past few months I have been tested a little, I've tidied my cupboards (hooray!), experimented with new sugar craft designs, invested in new tools and written my first few press pieces, about myself! It has been a total rollercoaster. I visited the fantastic Cake & Bake Show, in Manchester, buying my body weight in sugarpaste and attending tutorials, with a blog soon to follow, including tips, and was invited to my first press product launch, in LONDON! An amazing, new, delicious product - stay tuned for the blog!
Dragons & Bears...
My tidy cupboards!
I completed another order, with a request for cats, furniture and eyebrows - on a cupcake! Made me smile and the clients were very happy! Take a peek below...
And some little mini cupcakes for my fellow Brand Booster Bitesize Course finale...
Not forgetting Mother's Day...
Family of chocoholics...if you hadn't guessed!
In addition, this month I had my first official photo-shoot and pictures taken for the paper! I wasn't looking my finest, having eaten some beautiful Easter treats from Hotel Chocolat (pictured below). I tried a Salt and pepper chocolate - mind blowing, but obviously delicious! The official pictures and newspaper story will be online soon!
Hotel Chocolat Egglet Bliss!
Paint the roses red <3
My Nan's traditional chocolate yogurt cake! Recipe soon to be in Sheffield Papers!
Sadly, this month saw the tragic and sudden passing of the beautiful Gabi Smith, aged 12. I have been fortunate to work with her amazing, strong mother Faye and spent time with Zach, her brother and her. After the initial guilt, the amazing funeral and the heartfelt send off, with balloons, Faye & Zach are sure she is partying in heaven, with her earthly and heavenly father. I made chocolate cake, Gabi's favourite, to celebrate her wonderful life. Rest In Peace Precious Gabi <3
More to come my sweets! Keep posted, as things are hotting up in the Red Velvet kitchen.
Love and warm wishes this cool spring,
