My sister’s friend Jo is getting married and had her hen party the other weekend. Sarah asked me to come along to her picnic on the Sunday and bring some cakes of course!
I did some Henna ones for Jo before and she asked for them again.
Henna is proving popular I’ve got another Henna order for September…
Our lovely neighbour and friend Eva left to go back to Malaysia the other weekend so Amy threw her a big party.
I made her a cake with London landmarks on it to remind her of her time here. I was going to make her a big cat cake but thought that was too mean.
(She REALLY hates cats!)
This is the O2 (not a bridge EVA!), london bus, taxi, Gherkin and pigeon
Policeman, crown jewels, big ben, phone box, union jack, underground and GLA building
Eva and her Aunty Amy
So the big piece of news for the week was that I have finally chosen a name for when I set up my business. The Little Bird Bakery has had very good reviews from friends and family, it encompasses what I can see from my kitchen window and also has the added advantage of having a neat strap line ‘ a little birdie told me about your cakes’ which is what is currently happening! So I’m really happy and all thanks go to my sister for the brain wave. She wins the box of cakes.
You know when you decide upon something and then all of a sudden everything becomes connected to that thing? I took Hettie for a tour round IKEA on Sunday and saw many references to little birds.
The first was this lovely kitchen tray, which I had to buy…
And the second was this lovely fabric which they have unfortunately sold out of at the moment but I might be tempted to go back and buy it next time.
I also bought this lovely cake stand
And have to go back and buy this one too
This Friday/Saturday I shall mostly be baking cupcakes for Lizzie and David’s engagement party. I’m being a bit adventurous and going for vanilla, chocolate, lemon and coconut and gingerbread flavours with vanilla, chocolate, mint and lemon buttercream swirls.
Wish me luck.
