After enjoying sharing my Handmade Monday with you last week, I couldn’t wait for Handmade Monday #31 to come around!
Although not strictly crafting I thought I would let you know about my latest course – cake decorating. I have just finished a 5 week course run by Rizpah Conlon. She has been a great tutor and I have learnt so many good techniques that I will hopefully use again. I was brave enough to bake and decorate my own wedding cake but wished I had known a little more to make it look that little bit more special. So now anyone that gets a birthday cake will have crimping, flowers, embossing and weird shaped models all on the same cake!
One of my favourite bits was making some models, supposedly and elephant and a teddy bear however my mum kindly pointed out they looked more like an anteater and a koala bear! But still at least I now know the basics of how to do them!
My next course is back at The Make and Do Studio where I will be click clacking with some knitting needles. Needless(!) to say I will let you know how I get on!
Please call by Wendy’s Handmade Monday blog to see what everyone else has been up to this week!
