Hi there everyone! Long time no see!
I have been flat out working over on the online store (at but have been feeling a little bit sad that I'd stopped sharing my makings with you guys too! 
Life at the moment, well, with my big girl being off to Prep now, and miss 2 1/2 all of a sudden deciding that she's "grown up" has been hectic to say the least! I haven't had nearly as much time as I'd like to spend creating stuff, but I did make a wedding cake this week (with the help of my sister!)
A family friend was getting married, and she wanted her wedding cake to be gluten free - no cake decorater in the area was able to do that.  So me and my big mouth stepped in...
It wasn't too bad though, we made a gluten free fruit cake, iced it in a layer of rum buttercream (seriously to die for!), and then topped it with a layer of satin ice - a new variety of fondant that tastes incredible, and is so easy to work with!
This is how it turned out!
(that's my sister in the green apron, I'm in the red)
here's the beautiful bride and groom....
and the cake at the reception. 
It wasn't perfect, but it was completely gluten and dairy free, and delicious!
