Cupcake cake!

Claire had a birthday at the weekend and Hope wanted her gift to be a cake and here it is!

we had such fun making it. The girls started last week by making gluten free cup cakes and freezing them. On Saturday it was time to make the chocolate cake  and ice the cup cakes

each one is different....

and they all have little flags in them with a special word handwritten by Hope
(I bought the flags from The Works by the way)

The cakes were spiked onto barbeque sticks that have a wired paper calyx to hold them in place and stop them sliding down...... it was all very precarious but quite spectacular. Claire loved it!

later, we took the cupcakes off the stalks and surrounded the cake with them so we could light some candles and sing happy birthday!
The sun shone and it was HOT, HOT, HOT, here in Cambridge!!!!!

I have been busy working on woven fabric bags too since I last bloggerated but I shall show you them another day.....right now I really must go and do some work

Just looks so inviting to eat!
What a lovely idea...very clever and artistic!
I look forward to seeing your revealing of the next project.
Good wishes from Oxford, (also, it has been stifling here).
