First Christmas Cake for the year

This is the discarded shoe box cake!
This didn't photograph very well as i only had tin foil to line the board with and it reflects.

But Felicity was very happy with her cake :-)

Abby passed her green belt in Karate only 3 more to go and she will be a black belt - here is our little Ninja posing for me!  She still has to do what her mother says though lol.  Well done Abby!  Now i have to scrap these and the ball photos - one day lol.
Today I made a red velvet cake - has anyone out there made one of these?  I googled the recipe and made it as I have a 21st cake to make in three weeks and they wanted red velvet - I think a good chocolate cake tastes WAY better (actually i shouldn't say that because i have not tried it yet but it is more of a sponge sort of a cake and I don't particularly like the icing - licked my fingers i have lol)
I also made some gluten free chocolate cup cakes for them to try too.  The birthday girl is calling in today to have a taste test - gosh i hope i pass!

here is the the practice cake:

So if you are calling past today - pop in and try some red velvet I might even make you a cuppa to go with it!

And here was some cupcakes and cake pops Abby and I made for Halloween, the brains had mixed berry sauce in so when you bit into the cake - :blood: ozzed out lol.

Hope you are all having a great weekend, and thanks so much for popping in.

YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to discuss this matter
here on your site.
