Good Morning My Lovelies,
I hope that today finds you all well, my goodness I am so relieved it's Friday, I am so looking forward to spending some quality time with Paul, he has had a busy week at work, which has meant that his work day continued after he gets home, Tuesday night he worked until 11.30pm, he left for work at 6am. So I think he will be pleased it's Friday too!
So whether you are doing the dreaded Housework, or popping out for some delicious cakes, I hope that your Friday is a happy one!!
I have shared the picture of Janet & Jim's cakes from last Friday, the look so delicious, I will add Janet's description again so that you can really get an idea of what they tasted like as well as having your mouth water looking at them!
My cake had the title of 'EXOTIC' and really was gorgeous.
It was made with a 'Caramel sponge base; on top of which a good layer of Passion Fruit Mousse;this wascovered with another layer of Caramel sponge. The fourth layer was Lemon and coconut Mousse. The final layer was a beautiful Lemon glaze with coconut and the finishing touch on one corner a Choc finger.
Jim's cake for this week was -Vanilla and Raspberry slice. The base of which was a thin layer of sponge topped with a thick layer of Raspberry Jelly. the next layer was a beautiful light Cream mousse topped again with a thin layer of plain sponge. This was topped with Vanilla Cream.The finishing touch was Raspberry Glaze and a finger of Choc.
From all that you can see why we only have 'cakes' once a week!
From this week I will add Janet's cake photo on a Saturday to accompany her mouth watering description, if that's OK with you Janet ?? ( i missed last weeks until it was too late.
Your Next Challenge
I made myself a little list of Challenge ideas for the next few weeks, so old ones, some new ones and some favourites.
This week I thought we could get out our Stencils/Masks/Embossing Folders and get some use out of those, I guess it would be mainly for backgrounds but in the case of some Stencils they are the main focus too. I think it would be a nice change to focus just on those tools, we can of course use anything else on the card with those things, so for instance if you have used an Embossing Folder you can use whatever else you need to finish the card. I'm sure that like me you all have plenty to choose from, I certainly do, I even have a selection that have not been used !! So it will be a good excuse to get them out of their packaging!
I hope that you all enjoy the challenge, any questions then please just ask, I am happy to explain in more detail.
As always I hope that you all have a lovely weekend, wrap up warm it's going to get very chilly,
Love and huge hugs to all of you,
