Quick Whinge

So pushing myself to the limit the other week must have sent me mad.... I have taken on another out there cake due on Saturday. It's a teapot cake with gumpaste teacups and saucers and right now I am not doing so great with the teacups (grrr) I may just bite the bullet and make them out of polymer clay if i cant get it right by tomorrow. At least if its ugly we can still eat cake :)

It's Over

The most manic crafti week ever in my life is over and I have had a decent sleep... life is back to normal!

Here are some pics of the finished projects.

The cake - my first first two tier, first wedding cake, first time working with fondant - all and all I think it came out pretty awesome - and tasted good too :)
Talk about pressure though lol.

The first flower girls dress (my daughter Ava), I also made over her shoes with red glitter and mod podge.

The second flower girls dress (the bride's daughter)
My dress.

And last but certainly not least the wedding dress (well the skirt as the corset was a purchased one). The photos don't do it justice but these are just the happy snaps grabbed while we could.

Time for me to clean my studio up after cyclone wedding hit it, then get cracking into a craft swap I'm in :)

Happy crafting!!

I am not defeated.... yet!

So I am battling my way through a pettiskirt but getting the required bulk in the right areas is proving more difficult than desired - in fact need more fabric, which will have to wait till tomorrow, so today I shall play good housewife and clean - fun, fun, fun!

If I am lucky I am going to sneak in a few hours sewing the flower girls dresses.

getting into the swing of things

Ok so i haven't been posting a lot but then I also haven't been creating a lot but the next few weeks are going to be chocka full of crafti-ness!!

I am helping a friend with her wedding, first the cake - she saw a topsy turvy cake with a corpse bride theme and fell in love so I am going to attempt to recreate it (silent scream arrrrgggghhhh) but I have confidence that i can do it.

So the cake topper looks like this

taken from this picture of inspiration

and hopefully the cake will look a little like this cake from the www.pinkcakebox.com
The twist was she didn't want the corpse bride as it wasn't who Victor ends up marrying and not to mention the fact that the happy couple to be wed do look a little like Victor and Victoria.

I still have a lot of prep to do for the cake but on top of that i have four dresses to make in roughly two weeks.... (slightly audible scream arrrrrrggghhh) but I have confidence I can do it.

The first dress is my dress to wear as a bridesmaid, the next two are the little flower girl dresses, and the last is my friends wedding dress - should i mention I have never made any of the above before so keep your fingers crossed for me lol.

keep ya posted,
