Its been a long time...

well it feels like a long time anyway!  Christmas has been and gone and the sales are in full force.  Hope you have all had a lovely relaxing Christmas.  Mines been pretty eventful and I haven't found time to blog.

Firstly it's my sister Lucy's birthday is on boxing day.  Usually we spend the day traipsing round the sales then have a big party in the evening but this year she went on holiday to Cuba on her birthday so we had a birthday meal on the 23rd to celebrate.  Now as you've already seen I love to bake.  I bake for everyones birthday so it was expected that I would make her some cupcakes but I wanted to do more than that, I wanted to make her a HUGE cake!

The cake was a LOT of hardwork!  It was the first tiered cake I have made and I have vowed never to use black fondant ever again!  Its so hard to keep it looking black.  I was pretty happy with the end result though.

The most exciting day was yet to come, on Christmas eve Lucy's boyfriend proposed!  Wowzers!  We are all set for a 2011 wedding and are waiting for them to set a date.  Her fiance (I hate that word!) designed her engagement ring and it's perfect for Lucy:

Stupidly this is the only photo I took on my camera so you'll just have to make do with a photo of the ring and not one of the ecstatic bride to be!

Christmas day was a filled with family and food, just the way it should be.  I got lots of lovely gifts including the ring I blogged about and a surprise necklace from my boyfriend, I will no doubt share photos in a future blog.  I was very spoilt and had such a nice day.  I hope you all had a great day too and that santa was good to you.
