My nephew turned 18 on Friday. Stepping into the adult world now....blimey I feel old! I wanted to make him a cake to celebrate. I've made a note in the recipe book not to use that one again as it turned out a bit dry. Everyone was polite enough not to say so though, which was kind. Anyway, how to decorate it. I remember seeing a game console one in a book and decided to do an x-box controller. I didn't manage to get the button proportions right but it wasn't too bad. The 18 candle is hiding the X button but here it is:
I used the left over bits of cake to make vodka truffles. I still have some rumtopf left that I made using vodka so used that. They were small but yummy.
So moving onto the button part of the title now. After spending a couple of hours cleaning yesterday, and then visiting family (always nice), I wanted to find something crafty to do that I could do downstairs. Bang goes anything on the sewing machine as that's upstairs. So glue gun, buttons, cork leftovers (from the notice board), and some spare magnets in hand I got myself ensconced on the sofa. A short time later and I now have a batch of bright magnets that I will take to the next craft stall.
