It's crazy to think that took 4 hours. I am sure the stress of doing in on the day makes things take longer. As you will notice there are no little flowers of icing - that was because the icing just would not stick onto the cake. At first it would not even get through the tip on my piping bag. So the icing was a real test of my patience today. I kept having to change my plan of what I was going to do. Thankfully Rachel was pleased with the final result.

So I did not plan things well this week. I got ready to bake the cake on Thursday night only to find I did not have enough eggs. Our chooks have not been laying that well (it sounds like it's the same with many others in the area too) so I forget that we don't have a good supply and the 6 I needed were not available. So I bought eggs in town yesterday and baked the cake last night. We only got home after 8pm, so icing it was not an option. I got up at 5:30 and was on the go before 6. Eventually at 9:30 I got dressed so that I was not still in my pajamas when the guests arrived. I was however just finishing up when they did.
