Heart of Roses Wedding Cake

I disappeared from the blog for the last week, and so apologies for the silence! Our Masters cohort had our seminars last Friday, wherein we had to deliver a presentation on our research to not only our peers, but to all the other students and academics in the department as well. Not only did we have to deal with the usual fear of public speaking, but also the knowledge that our research could be torn apart by the academics during question time. Add to this the knowledge that we would be graded on our presentation as well as our ability to handle question time and we were all wrecks! My week was spent preparing and rehearsing and trying to get all my data analysed in time. It was the most busy and stressed and pressured I, and we as a collective group, have been for our whole degree. 

It was exactly the time when I should have been saying no to commissions. Especially to commissions for occasions as important as a wedding. 

I'm incredibly bad at saying, "no". 




It was a good practise of the time management skills I've been perfecting throughout the last 7 years of University degrees.

A very pretty and professional cake. I never realised there were 2 shades of red in it. =P
Thank you. :]
It's so beautiful.
I still need to learn how to properly put fondant on a cake. My last try looked horrible~ >___<.
Not to worry - my first try was an absolute disaster! It does take a bit of practise. I'm still very much learning and have failures every now and then - it takes time, but it does get easier.
Gonna try hard! >8D


Btw. Gangnam Style ftw! (Especially since I'm a k-pop fan xD)
xDD It's so stuck in my head lately. It's catchy and brilliant and hilarious and just amazing.
Every time I listen to it, I need to dance as well. xDD
you have so much talent & I am so glad you are sharing it with us!
Aw, thank you. That's so lovely of you to say. ♥ It's absolutely my pleasure.
