Hi, Welcome To My Blog

I love various different types of crafts and have had a dabble at most over the years, some with greater success than others. I believe that apart from loving and giving, being creative is the next most important thing to do. There is something about being creative that taps into something deep within us that makes us feel good with the world. But then we were made in the image of God, God The Creator... so I guess being creative will be second nature to us if we allow. The problem is that many people will not have a go because they make the mistake of measuring themselves against others... and that is just not a good thing to do. I create because I like to create, not because I have to impress anyone else or be better than anyone else. I created this blog with a lot of help from my son-in-law, as a personal scrap book that I am happy to share with others if they wish to take a look.... Enjoy <><

Frederick's Birthday Cake

This is one of the first cakes I ever made and it was for a gentleman who was very involved with amateur dramatics.

It was a fruit cake covered in marzipan and Regalice. The flowers and masks were made from icing that sets hard. I used powdered food colouring for the flowers and paste colouring with water to paint the faces on the masks.
