Hayley ordered this 8" chocolate biscuit cake for her daughter's first communion. ... except, I was meant to make the flowers turquoise!?! Hayley came in and we chatted and I redid the cake in the right colours. Phew!
... I've forgotten the name of Geraldine's husband. It'll come back to me. Either way, this is his birthday cake. He had a big birthday recently and Geraldine ordered this 10" coffee cake to celebrate. As he is a plumber it was only right he should be on the job. I've included a few of his passions here, Leeds Utd., Fishing and a good cup of tea. Everything is edible (except for the banner supports).
his is an 8" chocolate biscuit cake that was made to celebrate Mia's communion day. It's based on a design we made previously... with the addition of a mini Mia. Everything is edible and handmade (except the tulle on the dress, I'm not that good. Yet.)
My fabulous friend Nicola has campaigned tirelessly for the Together for Yes group and this week a gang of about a 100 of them are meeting up in Fingal. I was only too happy to donate a cake. I believe in women x
Note: I've received quite a bit of abuse for this cake. I have been called quite a few names over the past few days and yes, I could delete the cake and pretend I don't support this cause but ... I do. I believe women in Ireland should be allowed full autonomy over their own bodies. I trust them to do what is right for them. I, at this stage in life, will probably never need to avail of an abortion but my friends might, my neighbours, kids, cousins, people I don't know might and who am I to stand in their way? Regardless of what you believe in I think everyone should follow In Her Shoes. You'll find it on twitter and facebook. It is an account made up of 100's of women's stories. Why they made the choices they did. Women shouldn't have to justify their choices but this is where we find ourselves. Life isn't black and white. It's many shades of grey. Take care and remember it's all about choice and you choosing to ring me, mail me, pm and dm me abuse and, frankly, bizarre images, is you choosing to bully me and showing your true colours. https://www.facebook.com/RepealTheEighth/
I like feeding my family and friends. Love new recipes and love making cakes. Love making anything really, I'm creative. I share my home with my husband, three sons, a dog, a lizard and a tortoise. I've made this life for myself but frequently lament never getting to be 'just left alone'. Only need 5 minutes mind as for some sodding reason I start to miss them after that.
