HAPPY BIRTHDAY! .....

...... to my DH! xx

 

In case you are thinking this offering is rather small, he usually loses out on a big cake for several reasons ...... a) September is always such a busy month for birthdays and cakes (could it be that romance blossoms at Christmas I wonder?) ....... b) he can never bear to cut my cakes (does this tell you something?LOL) so we end up either throwing them away or keeping them until they're fossilized! ...... and c) in any case neither of us should really be eating big cakes !!!!! ;o))))

 

This is the latest cymbidium try-out and I have (foolishly) put a real one behind it. Foolishly because my DH is a retired University Lecturer whose subject was Botany and he can be my severist sugar flower critic! :o(((

 

Cake iced in fondant ....... one green cymbidium orchid made with love by me in flower(gum)paste ..... the other made by Mother Nature.
