Chrysthamum Wedding Anniversary Cake: May 2008

Dear inspirations, that's what i call you all my blogger friends ! The MBA examinations took me off the blog for a while but as you know, there is an ad which comes on the NDTV (oh ! yes, we are able to watch it here, too, in Botswana) which says 'the end of knowlege is love and the end of education is character' so while my passion for sugracraft is still a journey to perfection, when ever priority for education comes on front, i just snugly tuck my hobby for a while and try to concentrate on studies, as i have no control over the age which is passing by !

With examinations over, i made this cake quickly in two days for a friend's wedding anniversary. With winter setting in and chrysthamum and roses in bloom, i chose this theme for them. It was liked by them and i hope you all will also give me a slight pat for trying ! Well, there still much room for perfection and i will keep on practicing !

When i opened my blog, I was and still am overwhlemed with love and affection that you bestow upon me. Thank you so much for thinking of me this way !
feel that my blog is 'yummy'. Hey girls, i bow down like the gilrls do in school.Thank you !

Celebration Cake: India Association Family Fun Day : May 2008

India Association celebrated 10th May as Family Fun Day at the Club and I made this cake to raise some funds for the association. Before the American Auction could start, we discovered that it was the birthday of one of our esteeemed member's wife and it was decided not to auction the cake but celebrate her birthday on the ground with this cake.
This cake was made in less than two days, as i am occupied with studies for the MBA mid-session examinations, which starts from this week. I have given YUMMY BLOG AWARD by two of my lovely blogger friends Homecooked & Cham and will display it in my next blog.
I thank all my blogger friends for visiting and encouraguing me so often ! I will be off the the blog until my examinations are over.
