I must show you my first attempt at making icing roses - as you may remember I have made a cake for my mum's 80th birthday in December and I want to ice it myself - I have made novelty birthday cakes for my kids but never a serious grown up cake! So on Sunday my daughter and I decided to have a go at making roses as a practice, oh dear! I don't believe blogging should always be about the perfect projects you should come clean and show the not so good ones too - and this wasn't so good...........................
I have finished my Grandma Stars from The Royal Sisters blog which I found through Lucy and I am pleased with them, they go really well with the Snowmen. I made them in crochet cotton and glitter cotton and I added an extra round to emphasise the 'pointy bits', because they looked too small in crochet cotton and when I blocked them I sprayed a little fabric stiffener on them, and hey presto they have come out really well.
I must say a thank you to Maria who mentioned me on her blog and made a snowman from my tutorial, I am glad it worked.!
Well I will leave you for now or else my 'getting things done' mood will rapidly diminish hehe! oh and if anyone is an expert at icing roses maybe you could give me some tips!!!
Have a great day, speak soon xx
