A Birthday Cake

You are probably sick to death of seeing me post pictures of Karen's cakes but I just had to put this one up (and also I told my mum I would, lol).

One of Karen's workmates, who is a chef, had asked her for a cake for her daughters 1st birthday party.  She gave her an outline of what she wanted and this is what Karen produced.  Now I know I am biased but  I think it is rather good.




Here is a wee butterfly she made.

And a teddy - so cute!!

It is always nerve racking for  me until they are delivered to the customer because they sit in the house and I am worried that it gets dropped or  falls from the kitchen counter. 
Can you imagine it???? 
Anyway it is being delivered tomorrow night.

The only problem with Karen making these lovely cakes is there is always cake left over  and it is soooo scrummy you just have to have a bit.  
I am TRYING REALLY HARD to lose some weight 'cause I really need to - what's a girl to do!!!!! :))

What a lovely cake for a baby shower. Karen is so talented. I realized I had missed a few of your recent blogs so just spent a pleasant while catching up with Emma's prom, your walk by the sea (beautiful sky photo), and your new house renovations. You're very busy over there in your neck of the woods.

To masz świetnego cukiernika w domu, bo torcik wygląda ślicznie, aż żal go jeść. Pozdrawiam.
To have a great baker in the house, because it looks pretty cake, eat it up sorry. Yours.

Ellie, this is beautiful! Karen is an amazing cake artist. I used to do this quite a bit for my kids' birthdays when they were younger. Lots of fun, but also sooooo much work.

What a beautiful cake...she really is an artist! I'd go bonkers with all that cake around. I think I gained the 15 lbs I just lost when my daughter first started baking. Goes on fast and comes off slow! But Ellie those cakes are gorgeous!
