I am calling this post 'The Great Reveal' out of sheer joy that I have finally finished. The cake, THE CAKE, I have been working on all week, is done, dusted, cut and scoffed with great delight by family and friends with compliments abound. I'm sure you are all bursting with excitement, maybe a little wee had already escaped, so here it is........
I am very, very, very pleased with the end result. Relieved it went well as it was a practice run for a friends wedding this summer. She wants me to make her cake even though I had never done it before at the time of asking. Ever the practical I embarked on giving it a bash first with a single tier cake for my Mum's 60th and now with this Ruby Anniversary two-tiered one. I just wish the light had been better for a better photo but I was too scared to move it nearer more natural light, what if I had dropped it? I am a dropper, clumsy Mummy remember if you read the earlier post.
Suffice to say I am feeling really good it went well, my beautiful parents-in-law loved it, their guests ate it heartily and I got very drunk and danced the night away with lots of mental, tummies filled with fizzy juice, children running about the dance floor bashing each other with balloons. So a good family party then.
I have crowned myself Queen Ali today if that's OK with you!!
