OK, so I've been a little bit slack and realised I haven't posted April's challenge. I've decided to wait until May now, so that everyone has a chance to make something. I can't believe how quickly the days are passing at the minute, but between Dr/Hospital/Work I don't seem to get a minute for myself any more. I am currently on with the very boring task of tax year end calculation for the business. How I wish it would just magically calculate itself!!

In between the boring stuff, Niamh decided we were to enter a Cake Decorating competition (gulp!) I don't think she realises that there are some very talented bakers out there and after a few weeks of making cakes, we probably don't stand a chance. But......here's how we got on:

First, we made a victoria sponge......

 Next we covered it with Pink Icing..

       Then we added white choc chip 
cupcakes with pink icing and a buttercream topping and a bunch of sugarpaste stars...

   and some more buttercream & stars

  and this is the finished product!

I have never spent so long on baking/creating a cake, but I am looking forward to demolishing it!!! (I did squash the top when I tried to cover it, but nobody gets to see that but!)

If you would like to support me (but mainly Niamh) in winning this competition, please follow this link and vote for the Star Cake Cupcake Crazy entry! https://www.facebook.com/MyCakeDecorating/app_115978431901938

Back on the Papercrafting front, I have had a go at scrapbooking this week. I don't think it will take over from my card making, but it was nice to do something a little different
