Charlie the Unicorn

So, it was Gemma's birthday a month ago and I had made her the pony stable cake for the previous birthday which was a huge success even though it wasn't one of my best cakes. Gemma LOVES Charlie the Unicorn so naturally... a Charlie the Unicorn cake!

My other buddies, Katie, Tom and Misha made a Candy Mountain cake to accompany it, but unfortunately I don't have pictures *sad face*.

I wasn't as careful with this cake as I should have been so the icing is horribly jagged and cracked. I hated myself for this as it's one of the things I struggle with in decorating. I'm trying though!

Christmas Cake

A very late upload the other Christmas cake I decorated for a family friend's present.

The fondant is quite damaged as my mum forgot to take pictures and packed it up in foil inside a tin. *facepalm*. Fondant goes quite soft if kept in a tin, and with a foil wrapping - it is quite malleable and so you get foil crinkles. I tried to make a Christmas tree shape with the stars but I had about an hour to do the cake before the Christmas post closed... sooo it's not that great...
