The Gallery – Food
The Gallery theme for this week is food so I thought I’d show some of the cakes I’ve made.
I started getting interested in cake making and decorating when I was younger. I used to watch my Nan-Nan decorating various cakes for weddings, christenings, birthdays etc.
She made absolutely amazing cakes and I was always in awe of her talent. Whenever a cake was a needed, she was the first person all the family went to.
Unfortunately she doesn’t make cakes anymore so when my brother decided to get married, he asked me if I’d be able to make his cake.
I’d never made a wedding cake before and to be honest, I’d only ever made sponge cakes to have with a coffee. Celebration cakes were new to me so I turned to Google and You Tube to help me learn what I needed to know.
Thankfully he gave me plenty of notice so I had lots of time to practice!
For a first timer, I think it turned out pretty well; the bride and groom agreed, thankfully! 🙂
It started off an interest in baking and I’ve since made birthday and christening cakes for my children, nieces, nephews and cousins.
