I hope your enjoying your weekend, it’s so nice to finally have some nice weather. I thought I would share with you the cake I made for our anniversary. We had to postpone our plans due to me being poorly, but I’m pleased to say I’m feeling much better each day.
The cake is a classic sponge cake, with a strawberry jam and strawberry butter icing filling. I then put a small coating of the strawberry butter icing around the outside, and then white chocolate ganache piped roses.
The ‘Just Married’ flag is from the wedding last year, I bought them to put them in the floral centrepieces. The bunting I made myself!
And because it was a special occasion the edible glitter came out!
The Mr & Mrs sign I had on the cake table at our wedding.
My lovely husband bought me some peonies, my favourite flower and the flowers I had in my bouquet. He’s such a romantic :)
Please excuse the huge amount of photos, I got a little carried away :)
So I’m feeling a little sorry for myself, I woke up without my voice, it’s finally given in and stopped working completely, my throat is so sore and my glands are really swollen and my ears are all blocked up too… boo hoo :( The thing is it’s our first wedding anniversary tomorrow and we had so much planned!
But anyway enough of the self pity.. I’ve really caught the embroidery bug! I’ve been browsing patterns on Pinterest and I have to say I’ve become a little obsessed with the vintage patterns, and now I’ve worked out how to download and print off there will be no stopping me! I have quite a few ideas for little projects for around the home.
These little blue birds were my first pattern to print off, I just couldn’t resist them!
I’m just not sure what to do with it, I have ideas of sewing some different patterns and incorporating them all in a quilt of some sort. I’m just brainstorming at the moment :)
But I am in love with these little birds, you can see the pattern here.
This is the next pattern I want to stitch next, I want to make a peg bag and this is what will be on the front. I will of course share my progress.
