What have I been up to?

Well, it seems like ages since I've posted, although it's only been a week! I feel like I'm totally on another planet recently as I've hardly had a decent conversation with anyone and and feel like I'm on a treadmill, but never mind! I'm enjoying it!

I've been doing a bit more cake decorating recently. After Heidi's cake I though I was over it, but after a day or two I was back again. I'm currently working on a dedication cake for this Sunday. It's going to have booties on top which I'm molding out of fondant. Quite easy to do but hard to get them perfect which is frustrating. I've had two attempts tonight and will have another try tomorrow.

What else...?.... nothing worth blogging... just the norm.

Tomorrow I'm heading out to the cake decorating shop in QBN, baking a large slab cake and making two lasagnas - vegetarian (for Josh's bro) and normal (for the rest of us meat lovers!). I'm also going to be baking a b'day cake for Josh's bro. Looks like I'll be spending the day in the kitchen!

Anyway, better head to bed :) I don't' want to totally bore you guys, but will try and keep you a little more updated!


  1. You could never 'bore' us, Ruth. I hope you're gonna put a pic up of the dedication cake.

    And Josh's brother's cake.

    And the vegetarian lasagna ...

    (only kidding about the lasagna ... just got carried away!!!)

  2. lol Heather you crack me up with your comment.

    Ruth I would love to come and check out how you do some of your cake deco, let me know when you next doing one please.

  3. Kirsty, when I'm making a cake I break it into lots of small tasks most of which are done after the kids are in bed at night. Tomorrow morning baking(7.00am as it takes 2 hrs in the oven) and hopefully at some time in the day a perfect pair of bootees. These may even be done after HFG. Thursday I'll prepare the cake (make the ganache in the morning then put it on at night)and then Friday I'll ice and Saturday I'll put on the finishing touches. It's a bit all over the place.
