Just to get in some practise i made this cake for my husband's birthday lol! I covered the cake by tinting white fondant pale blue, then tinted it again for the detail around the edge. The edge was made with a 'multi spot embosser' from issue 59 of 'Cake Decorating' magazine, although i cut out all the spots so you could see through to the pale blue base.The whale was also from the same issue and made by tinting the mid blue fondant again and moulding into a whale shape. The water coming from the whale's blowhole was made from white fondant as were the bubles underneath him.
I'm very happily married with 4 children. 3 boys and a girl. The boys are 24, 23 and 11 and my daughter is 15. The eldest son is engaged and left the Navy to work on civilian ships; most wonderfully he has given me my first Grandson as of the end of March 2013 so I'm now officially a Grandma; so happy. My second eldest son joined the Navy as of October 2013 too; so proud. My daughter is in her final exam year and my youngest son is now at secondary school; where does the time go? I love making things from cakes to cards, knitting to scrapbooking and miniatures. I trained as a primary school teacher but 6 years later and filling in for others or supply teaching I've given up on teaching; at least I have more time for crafting and my new Grandson.
