Give the gift of cake!

Good afternoon to you on this horrid rainy Saturday. Well I am mostly staying in this weekend as I am working on my friends wedding cake. The wedding is on Saturday (Eek!) which is getting close, all I have got to do is finish the cake, learn a reading and sort out my outfit!  

This morning I marzipanned the bottom tier which is fruit and then cut the tester cake. Luckily for me my boyfriend James was on hand to help with the tough job of Quality control! No sooner had I cut it than he had whisked half away to take to his parents and put dibs on the other half for work! Its lucky that I have a boyfriend that will put up with cake tasting on a regular basis (I'm not keen on cake - I would happily beg for cheese - but cake I can take it or leave it!) This brings me to a little cake/gift tip I have. If like me you ever have bits of fabric and ribbon hanging around here is a good little way to turn a couple of slices of cake into a rustic gift...

Stack Cake (Wendy's special recipe... oh alright Delia's finest!) into a rectangle
Then wrap in two layers of greaseproof paper
Then wrap in a square or pretty fabric (which can be made even cuter with pinking shears) and tie with a ribbon or string (I thought sending the other half to his newish job with a pink bow was perhaps a little too far, otherwise it would have been a pink ribbon!)
Hey presto, cute cake! Not bad for a tester cake eh?

  2. This may not sound fair, because it’s not

    But did you know that you can be a guy’s dream girl...

    I mean, you can literally check off every box on his “perfect woman” list...

    But if you mess up this one thing, he’ll drop you the second another option comes along?

    My friend James Bauer discovered this missing “secret ingredient” all men are constantly searching for in a woman.

    And most women have no clue it exists because guys aren’t even aware of it.

    We just KNOW when it’s missing.

    The really cool thing is, when you know how to give a man this “secret ingredient”...

    It will send a shockwave of desire for you straight to his brain and he will HAVE to have you.

    In fact, when you do this... watch his face light up, almost as if he’s just been zapped.

    It’s that moment when he says to himself “Where have you BEEN all my life?”

    Every woman should know this. Check it out here: ====> Why men leave “perfect” women... <=====
