I saw some delightful little cakes a few weeks ago in a magazine, and decided to have a go at it myself. And, pleasingly, it turns out that cake-icing is not all that different from making pretty things from felt!
I mean, obviously, there’s no sewing involved, and the cake itself is a lot tastier than the fluffy stuffing I use in my felt projects. However, it still involves pretty colours and Mrs. Flowers!
I (well, my mum) am now in the process of trying to get all the bits and bobs I need sorting in order to sell my little cupcakes at craft fairs and on my website. I’m so excited at all the cakey possibilities there are. Personalised, fruity, pastel, brights, fairies, footballs...
There’s a fair bit of research, information-gathering and experimenting to do before expanding my little business to include PeggyBakes. Do I need a new website? How do I package cupcakes safely enough to send them?
But I’m so excited!!!
