As I mentioned in my previous post, I was super lucky this Christmas to have received some amazing gifts. The first of these was my very own Agbay cake leveller. I've been umming and ahhing about getting one for the looooongest time, but just couldn't muster up the budget for it. Thank goodness for my lovely work colleagues who pooled their resources and made my wish come true! To my neverending shame, I actually cried when I unwrapped the box, and didn't let go of it for about 20 minutes (seriously I found myself in a meeting still clutching it to my chest haha).
Having minimal parts, it's a pretty quick learning curve. As much as I enjoyed my cake break, I was really looking forward to making the first cut.
|Ready for the first cut!! scary!|
|Perfectly straight cuts - no tears ... or tears! haha|
|So clean - it is a thing of beauty!|
*Ahem* anyway, embarrassing happy dances aside, the cakes did eventually find themselves a new costume:
Remember that baptism cake I was seriously not a fan of? Well I blinked and now she's turning 2!!! Where on earth did all that time go? I was so touched that her mum remembered me for her daughter's cake. She had requested this Peppa Pig cake and gave it my own little twist.
I was especially happy with how the little trees and apples turned out. I had forgotten to let Melodie's mum know that I was going to make a few changes but her message to me (after my explanation) was:
That's very fine Jacelyn, like my hubby said it shows that you are a professional :)
... once again you did not disappoint the cake was just gorgeous and delicious :)
