We celebrated our Golden Wedding Anniversary this week.
I have been worrying whether I should attempt to make the cake or not
We are having a family dinner out at our favourite Italian Ristorante.
Sooooo,I am taking the cake. I wasn't sure that it would be nice enough
to take, but I played around for weeks with so much icing,I was about to give up
and buy one.
You know how you talk yourself out and then into things
Well that's what I kept doing,until this week,only a couple of days until the dinner,
and too late to order one,I made a heart shape butter cake.
I wasn't sure whether to use the roses I had made or the purchased ones
These are the ones I made from Royal icing.
So I got to decorating and within an hour it was done.
All that worry and it just fell into place.
I put the ones I made on the cake and the bought ones around the edge.
I'm not very good at the iced writing,so stuck on some I cut off a 50cent card.
I think it's really come out all right.
Now I wanted to make a Dream Catcher which seems to be all over Blogland at the moment.
My friend Sandy at For the Love of White blog
posted a tutorial of some she had made.
I haven't had time to shop for a hoop yet but had a pair of plastic bag handles
in my stash of bits and bobs
I thought I could practice with those. They are only small but still a hoop.
This is my first attempt which I got a bit confused with the middle spider web
This is my second attempt. I think I need lots more practice when I get a bigger hoop.
I still quite like these though,even though they aren't perfect,I can't quite get the
spider web middle right.
I think this one might just be a little too tissy, but it's fun playing with the different looks.
I think it looks better on my bedroom curtains
