make it, break it or bake it...
I have a date this afternoon.
A date with a cake!
Queen Michelle is making me a birthday cake and I am heading South Side for some tea and delicious cake...
Last year, we made a birthday pact, to make rather than buy each other a present.
For my attempt in May, I went with something simple, that I felt confident that even I could do.
Using the pom pom book Lady Sandra bought me for my Christmas, I set out to make Queen Michelle a giant pom pom headband.
I bought a headband, lots of sparkly wool. I even bought a pom pom maker.
I broke it.
I bought another one.
I broke that too!
Bollocks, this was not going very well at all.
I resulted to Plan B which was to make some pom poms using a fork
I kept cutting the wrong ends...
After two weekends, all I had manged to produce was four tiny pom poms.
I bent the rules a little, bought a vintage bed jacket and attached them.
Queen Michelle laughed her ass off at my heartfelt but tragic effort.
Who could blame her. I really need to step up my game for next year.
On the other hand, as I type this I am certain that Queen Michelle will be creating a thing of wonder.
We shall take some pictures so that you can share in the bakey cakey fun....
