Another reason why I have also been so busy lately is because last weekend I made my first wedding cupcakes and cake. I was also working full time, so I would get home and make a batch of cakes every evening to freeze, then had to make the big chocolate cake and spent all of last Saturday morning icing them. This was also combined with having to attend my own cousin's wedding and get ready for that, so it was a very stressful week and morning! It was so so worth it thought when I assembled the cake on the cake stand.
I hate to blow my own trumpet, but don't they look great?! I was so pleased with them. The week had been so humid so I was scared that the icing would go sloppy with the heat and not pipe properly, but it went very smoothly. If I ever got married myself I would possibly even consider making my own cake, because it is such a big expense and I don't think I'd be willing to spend £200+ on cakes I know I could easily make myself.
