Had such a lovely email today from a couple for whom I created wedding cake toppers for last month at pretty much the last minute. It's so lovely to get feedback like that as it can be a very lonley process making these - particularly as you don't meet your customers! The email reads:

'As promised please find attached (I hope!!) pictures of your wonderful cake topper on our wedding cake! Thank you so much once again, our guests absolutely loved them and they now have pride of place on our mantlepiece.'

Also a lovely pic of the couple with the cake which makes my job so much more worthwhile (especially given that I have spent the last two days glued to my chair making toppers for next years' weddings)
Happy New Year everyone... :)

Happy new year everyone

Happy new year to you all,

Kids finally in bed and bacardi out of the cupboard. Hooray. Hope you have a happy and, most of all ,healthy 2009. Hope some of your prayers are answered and some of your dreams are realised in the next 12 months. Best of wishes from me to you x x x

Christmas hello

Hello and hope all had a lovely Christmas. I know I did! Now it's over and I have no excuse but to get back to work. My latest cake toppers are baking as I type. Will post some pictures of recent ones in the next day or two. I have a very busy couple of months ahead with some exciting new ventures so really looking forward to 2009. Hope all is well with my fellow bloggers too :)

For Norman

I see the countless Christmas trees, around the world below
With tiny lights like heaven's stars reflected in the snow

The sights are so spectacular, please wipe away that tear
For I am spending Christmas in Heaven above this year

I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear
But the sounds of music can't compare with the christmas choir up here.

I have no words to tell you the joy their voices bring
For it is beyond description to hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me I see the pain in your heart
But I am not that far away, we aren't really apart.

So be happy for my dear ones, you know I hold you dear,
And be glad I'm spending Christmas up in heaven above this year.

I send you each a special gift from my heavenly home above
I send you each a memory of my undying love.

So have a peaceful Christmas and wipe away that tear,
Remember I'm spending Christmas in heaven above this year.

Norman, you will be sadly missed and remembered with immense fondness. Hope you enjoy your first Christmas in Heaven. x
