Making, baking...

This weekend we had an early birthday party for our youngest daughter, who turns 2 on the 13th.  She's mad about pigs, so I decided to make her a pig themed cake! 
The cake was a chocolate cake, with a vanilla buttercream frosting.  (and the mud is a chocolate buttercream). 
I made the little piggies and ducks from fondant, which I coloured with food dyes and moulded by hand.  It's so much fun, like playdoh for grown ups! :)
It was a bit of a hit :)
I also made a stack of cupcakes, but forgot to take photos of them before the kids demolished them! (bad blogger!).  Here's one that I caught before it disappeared into the birthday girl's tummy :)  (It's missing one ear, and the photo's blurry, but I tried!) 
 Hopefully I'll be back to regular posts by wednesday! And then I can reveal what I've been busy doing!
Hope you're having a fabulous week!
