We're all mad here...

I'm sorry, I know it's been a while since I've posted, but I promise I'll make it up to you.

Things have been hectic at the Sugary Flower household; I've spent so much time over the last week or two preparing for my birthday party that I haven't had time to post about it. I have even been SEWING. Oh, yes. But we are now on the home stretch: the party is tomorrow, and I'm currently in the middle of making... drum roll.... my first ever Mad Hatter (or Topsy-Turvy) cake! You know the ones... gorgeously insane angles on tiers that look as though they will topple over at any moment...?

As of 1:45 this morning (aaurgh!) the carving is done, the cakes (just two for my first attempt - I'm not completely insane) have been coated with ganache, and they now crouch menacingly in my refrigerator, just daring me to try to ice them... I am kinda scared, but also excited, as I love this style of cake and have been dying to try one out. My birthday seemed the perfect excuse. Covering them with sugarpaste is tonight's job... wish me luck!

A funny thing: this cake looks a lot smaller than I was expecting. I guess you chop off quite a few serves during the carving process. Something to think about when you're designing one of these! Anyway, I"m sure it will be still be big enough for my little party, but I'm quite happy now that I decided to make cupcakes too!

No pics today :( but I promise promise promise to make it up to you after the party...

See you in Wonderland!
