Birthday and Wedding Anniversary Cakes: March 2008

March is the celebration time for our family. My husband's birthday on 7 March followed by our wedding anniversary on 8 March. I often tease my hubby for being so courageous to have married on International Woman's Day. Amidst flurry of activities and partying from 7 - 9 March, followed by the hectic monday mania at office, i did not get time to post the cakes which i had made for the occassions. Sometime i wish, i had more time for my hobby of making cakes but it's life and i try to indulge in creativity, when ever i can, away from daily rigmaroles of home and office.
My son wanted to present a basket full of chocolate truffles to his dad and who would he look at for turning his imagination into reality - off course, his mum. And there i was, working late night for two days to fulfill his wish ! And then, i wished to make a heart full of roses for my anniversary. So another day was spent in making it. All is sugarcraft work with madeira cakes !

Well, during these two days, what i cherished most were the phone calls and smses from the friends and relatives from India and other parts of the world. It makes one feel so complete to achieve the human bond and collect lifelong treasure of friends. Even though, it means the cellphone smudged with icing sugar or the cordless phone smeared with marzipan and fondant, when interrupted but it's a great feeling !
And now I have evergrowing circle of wonderful blogger friends and I celebrate this with you all, the first time after i entered the blogosphere in 2007.

What an awesome cake!
Love the choice of colour for that rose.
Happy Anniversary to both of you.
Happy belated birthday to your dear hubby.

Roz said...

I especially love the orange one. Do you dust the orange colour onto the cake or spray the colour on? If you spray the colour on, how do you do it so that the spray does diffuse thoughout the place your working, I hear that can be a problem with spraying.

Also a big 'Thank You' for the comments you left on my blog.
