March has been a busy month for us. Perky (with a little help from Pinky and me) decorated this cake to celebrate St David's Day. Mr Camberwell Crafts is Welsh and we made this as a surprise for him. We used a printout of the Welsh dragon as a template for the red fondant.
Pinky and Perky coloured some Welsh flags which I then stuck on metal skewers to give the cake a bit more height.
The daffodils were a real labour of love by Perky and took many attempts.
Daffodils are great value in March - normally £1 or less per bunch and they often last for 3 weeks. Here are some sitting in an old mayonnaise jar with some recycled ribbon.
March also heralded the baptism of a lovely friend. I made her this cross stitch bookmark from a pattern I first used possibly 20 years ago and had kept all this time.
Giving the bookmark some structure through a felt backing was trickier than I hoped.
I am still working my way through my inherited stash - it's a jumble of different crafting items and I think this was part of it - a packet of resources to make a Christmas garland. I didn't have the templates though, so just used the materials to make my own version.
At the end of each term Pinky and Perky give small gifts to their various 'teachers' - tennis coaches, Guides and Brownie leaders, Sunday school leaders etc. This year I hit upon a gloriously easy Easter themed decorated fairy cake. The ears are made from marshmallows and we were rather lazy and used Betty Crocker Icing for the topping.
For Easter Sunday I made a cave cake which looked like this initially:
and then on Easter Sunday looked like this
and then this.
