cushions, cake and garden

The cushions I made have been installed at Mum & Dad's and have updated the day bed nicely.

And today was my Little Guy's 3rd Birthday.  He is a bit mad about fire men/ fire engines at the moment so we couldn't go past the opportunity to make him a fire engine cake.  I was so worried that the cake would be very difficult to make but after a little help from Betty Crocker and Youtube we were well on our way.  

 The only problem with making cakes in Queensland in the height of summer is that the icing melts quicker than you can put it on the cake.  Even after refrigerating the cake the decorative icing was still running off the cake.  

But the birthday boy thought the cake was awesome and we've continued our run of great cakes.

Thirdly my husband Guy gave me a very handy little camera for Christmas so I've been madly snapping away.  I took a couple of photos in the garden this afternoon.

I hope everyone has had a safe and happy Christmas and look forward to a prosperous New Year.
