I can't believe it, I have won the fabulous giveaway fom Wendz at http://15coastroad.blogspot.com/. I am so thrilled because I just love Wendy's blog and the beautiful things she makes on Etsy. Thankyou so much Wendy.
In my last post I mentioned that I had made a flag cake for my sister's Royal tea-party. Here it is .....
I adapted the recipe from the barefoot contessa's flag cake, which is a bigger rectangular cake with the stars and stripes on it. Mine is a little squashed up, but nevertheless I was pleased with it. I used an image that I got from the graphics fairy , printed it, then backed it with card. I added 2 florists wires to the back, which were covered in florist tape and then stuck in to the cake. I had a lovely time at my sisters tea-party watching the Royal Wedding. It was wonderful, the couple so happy and relaxed, despite the enormous pressure on them. I loved the trees in the Abbey, that was a touch of genius, it just softened the whole image. A lovely day. I hope that you enjoyed your day too?
I finish with two beautiful floral images from the graphics fairy. I love this site, she has some absolutely wonderful images that we can all use. Please do pop in and see for yourself by clicking on the above link.
