|Tartan - Skye Heather from Remnant Kings|
I also went back to House of Sher and bought a couple more light fittings for the house. These are for the hall and are a smaller version of the large statement light in the entrance of the hall as shown in an earlier blog post. I also got 20% off....boost!

My next project was a slight set away from interiors and towards baking - a 30th birthday cake for my sister!! I haven't baked in years, despite my childhood ambition to have my own bakery - how I went from baker to engineer I don't quite know!!
|Baked two chocolate cakes to make a sandwich|
|Bought ready to roll icing in a variety of colours my sister likes - plum and grey|
|I bought capital and small letter cutters online plus number cutters|
|Took a while to get the hang of this - my tips would be roll icing very thin |
and use plenty icing sugar to stop it sticking
|The final product. I bought a bow cutter but couldn't get it to work |
so improvised with some heart cutters I already had...
Really pleased with how the cake turned out and happy to report it also tasted really nice :-)
Here's me and big sis on her night out. We went for dinner to Jamie's Italian in Glasgow (which I would definitely recommend) and then for drinks at Corinthian.
