Pucci Handbag .... Cake

My eldest daughter - Róisín is 17 today. Last year she was away for the weekend of her birthday, and we had a family wedding the day before, so it was a very low key affair.
Today she and I are heading off into temple bar for a bit of shopping and then we are meeting up with Des, Seán and Líadán for a meal out.
So I made a pucci inspired handbag cake, its chocolate orange cake on the inside ... so sod the diet and I shall be having some of this later (yum!!)

Snake Pie ...

Well its not really a snake pie of course! It is a chocolate cake, baked in a ring, covered with nutella spread, chocolate flavoured sugarpaste, and some jelly snakes in the middle.

And - TaDa - you now have a snake pie cake.

Mosaic - better image?

Hopefully this is a clearer image of the mosaic. Hopefully !! I wish my photography skills were better - was thinking this morning (as I had a lovely walk in the park) that come September and the evening classes are re-starting I may just join a photography class or club even.

Mosaic Work - redoing the splashback.

I havent completly fallen off the radar - just been facebooking really. Mainly I have been cutting up bits of glass and stickin em onto bits of wood!

You may remember i did a splashback for the kitchen in Cavan last year ...see and you may remember that I was not overly happy with it. Actually I was not a bit happy ..

So I have been redoing it - bigger and (I think) better :
This is it ... two out of the three panels ...
I like that its a bit busier than before ..
I am paying more attention to detail this time around too ... and have gone with small small pieces for the black background whereas I tried to do large the last time.
I love the little fairy at the corner of the 'garden'
