Emily's Basketball Themed 9th Birthday.

My niece Emily turned 9 last week and chose a basketball theme for her cake. She was going out for dinner to celebrate her birthday so took the main cake to the restaurant.

The cake was deep, dark chocolate cake filled with milk chocolate ganache and fondant covering.

The imprint on the basketball was done by using a piping tip. Here is a progress photo of the markings.

Emily held a small party to celebrate with her cousins, there were basketball cupcakes and basketball shaped cookies on a stick. The cupcakes were chocolate with chocolate buttercream and fondant tops. The cookies were vanilla sugar cookies with fondant icing.

Here is the birthday with her cake. Happy Birthday Emily Rose x

Enjoy your long weekend, try to stay warm :)

Introducing Sweet Style :)

I am very excited to be writing this post to introduce my lovely friend Leanne's new website and online store. Sweet Style was launched yesterday after many weeks of hard work.

Leanne first began with her blog, Mrs A in the Cove, when her family were building their dream house. Her blog evolved into everything pretty, Leanne has followed her dream and turned it into a reality.

Here is a little snippet of from Leanne's post introducing Sweet Style:

"Sweet Style is really a dream come true for me - what began 2 years ago as a blog about a new house we were building somehow has turned itself into something entirely of its own and it has nothing to do with building a house - funny the direction life can take when you find something you are passionate about."

Please head over and have a browse through Sweet Style, you will see all of the gorgeous parties that Leanne has styled (I would have loved to have included a photo of one of these events but blogger is still playing funny games with my photo's! ) along with her fabulous online store. 

Sweet style is stocking the gorgeous milk glass cake stands in every size and colour, there is a large range of candy jars as well as ribbon, twine, lollies and much more. New stock will be arriving regularly, so make sure you follow Sweet Style on Facebook or Twitter to keep up to date.

As an opening special Leanne is offering a 10% discount off every item in the store until Sunday, simply select your items and then enter the code "Launch" in the coupon box at checkout.

Best wishes to Leanne, I hope her business is a success :)

Enjoy your weekend.
