What I have been up to!

It is now 3 days until Christmas and I am finally organised! The past few weeks have been busy with all the usual end of year events. I have been making a few cakes as well as working.

I will keep the words brief as there are lots of photo's to share with you.

 The next series of photo's are from the Year 6 Farewell Dinner for the children at my son's school. This year I have been Vice President on the P&C Committee and volunteered to help organise the dinner. The theme was Masquerade, with the colours being red, gold, black and white. I made the tissue pom poms, the mask cookie favours and the cake and cupcakes. It was held at the local Bowling Club and the transformation of the room was amazing! The children had a fabulous night, each receiving a signature bear to create memories with.


So that is a wrap up of the last few weeks in cakes! We are hosting Christmas lunch at our house, so the preparations for the dessert table have begun.

I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, enjoy the time spent with those close to you and stay safe.

Thankyou for supporting my little blog in 2011, I look forward to continuing it in the new year.
