Cake Stencils

I've been having some fun decorating my favourite chocolate cake...
New ImageIMG 3976

All it takes is a stencil and some icing sugar.  
The first one is just a doily (you can get those at the $2 shop) i cut a heart out of the centre of mine and then sifted the icing sugar on top.
The second one is a clear plastic sheet (ie Old OHP paper).  The great thing about this is you can create whatever design you want!  I'd previously used that one as a paint stencil so it's a bonus that it worked for cake decorating to.

So go on, next time you're invited out for dinner offer to bring the cake and have a go at some alternative decorating.
Such fun!

Holly Jolly Christmas


Yes my Christmas shopping has begun.  Am i completely out of line?

The thing is i love Christmas!  I love the meaning behind it, the gathering of friends and family and getting the perfect gift.

I figure if i start getting presents now it saves a bunch of financial strain and shopping stress at the end of the year and i can get the bargains as soon as i see them.

Bring on Christmas baking, gift wrapping and crafting!  Don't worry i'll start that a bit later!

So what's your shopping style?
"no sweat i've been shopping since the start of this year"
"I'll start to think about it now"
"Bring on shopping during the silly season"
"Christmas eve will do"
