VINTAGE ANNUAL CAKE


 Last week I was a visitor at the local parish church's fair.  I do love a fair but  Mr Lemon Drizzle hates them! It was serendipitous that he had a friend visiting and I could take my tiny kidlet and sniff out some bargins without his sighs. 
We bought a morning glory plant...which has already died, a greying stuffed duck (hideous), a hot dog each (well kidlet just wanted the bun) and some wonderful vintage annuals.


So when my kidlet's nursery asked for a last minute cake for their coffee morning raffle in a massively busy week I opened up one of the annuals for instant inspiration. 


I found this picture and used it for a cookie cake topper on a simple lemon cake.

  4. What a great idea and how pretty it looks - the possibilites are endless with this. Andy isn't too bad with fetes and things but he's usually playing cricket so if I go, I go alone and have much more fun without him telling me I don't *need* anymore books.
