Lovely stuff, all of it! Especially like the challenge from over the road ... so typical of our kids, eh?

Doh, I cropped the pic of Tracy's card too but it's decided not to save that, it's showing ok on photobucket but puts the original here.
I used Bear grass which DD coloured in for me with a permanent marker, Billies idea I think, we told them not to eat the bit that had the stalks in.
I discovered that Culpit (the food deco company) make a 'bear grass' in different colours but I'd left it too late to order any in, not sure if theres is an artificial version, I would think so. I liked the effect though.

It's not fun if you do it all day every day and my skills are not as honed as they were, I'm not a businesswoman either, never been able to charge enough to make anything, thanks for the compliments girls, but it's not me. Takes up a lot of room in the house, and I get a bit stressed if I'm doing a wedding cake and someone even breathes in the same room.
I used to make cakes for people and had thought about it, but it's not something you can plan either, like these none for months, then 2 at once, busy all summer with wedding cakes too.

yes i see what you mean but you can also make money on small cakes too , look at how much folks charge for a cupcake nowadays . but you are right, you do have to have a business head about it . id be like you too and give them all away. im too soft

No use doing it if you get stressed about it, Karelyn: we should be doing these things for enjoyment.
