Last week a very dear friend of mine gave me a challenge. She wanted me to re-create in miniature the most fabulous cake that she could find!! As she works as a researcher for a wedding magazine she has an unlimited catalogue of bakers & bakeries that she can refer to. So, one day last week she turned up at my house with a box full of photos, & a packet of choccy biscuits (my favourites, LOL) & proceeded to rifle through them & choose five of the best. The rest was up to me!! It was a tough decision to make, only allowed to choose one, but here is the finished result, a hand decorated cake stand with a blackcurrant charlotte base, pink sponge cake with tiny macarons, slice of pink iced sponge cake & topped with a pretty lilac cupcake. Yummy!!
Also, I have just finished my last shift at the day job & as of Monday 'Ella-Rose Miniatures' will be my full-time occupation. It is something I have wanted to do for a very long time & finally I will be 'living the dream'.
