Confessions of a Cake Addict now has its own facebook page where you can see all my new (and past) cakes, stay up to date with new blog posts and see behind the scene photos of my cakes being decorated!
I know this post is a little late but I was busy celebrating 🙂
I love Valentine’s Day – some people may call it an artificial ‘Hallmark’ holiday but for me it’s a perfect excuse to celebrate all the love in my life, buy and/or make a cutesy gift for my husband, wear red heels to work, go out to a nice dinner and share a decadent dessert, go for a romantic weekend away… (and yes I did all those things this year!) and of course bake and decorate Valentine’s Day themed treats.
Sunday last week was my gorgeous husband’s 28th birthday and I wanted to make this birthday cake the best one yet (see the previous birthday cakes I’ve made for him here and here). He’s a big fan of the Aston Martin DB9 car so I decided that’s what I would make. It turned out to be a bit more of a challenge than I expected but still turned out pretty well for a first attempt – he was pretty wrapped with it anyway and that’s all that counts 🙂
Well we are well into January now, but seeing as I haven’t posted yet this year first of all I wanted to wish everyone a very happy New Year!
2012 was a pretty big year for me – for one thing I got married to my wonderful man in June! But amongst other amazing things that happened, I also discovered two new hobbies – cake decorating and blogging 🙂
Here are some highlights of my first year of being a blogger and cake decorator:
My very first fondant decorated cake that made it onto this blog was for my lovely husband’s (though he wasn’t my husband yet at the time) birthday last year:
