I'm truly in awe of just how kind, talented people really are. We've been so lucky with all the people we've got working on Mum & Dads house, not only are they getting on with the job and doing it quickly - but they're really, really nice. Anyhow, the other day - Simon called in and was chatting with them - and spied some amazing cupcakes that the plasterers wife had made. Very kindly, Ian, the plasterer saved Simon & I one - anyway, he said as he gave them to Simon .. "oh these are just everyday cakes, I'll get my wife to make some nice ones". Well trust me, her everyday cakes would put an awful lot of high end cake shops to shame. So ... long story short. A few days later ... Ian hands me a box of these stunning, stunning cakes. The only word I could say was wow! .... and of course like any scrapper ... got my camera out straight away LOL.
I did share them with the neighbours that came in and let Eddie in the garden while on Jury Service, and with Simon .. so please don't think I ate them all to myself ... although I did have the bulk of them .. but in my defence - they tasted as good as they looked.
If you're on Facebook ... do pop along and see her other cake designs - she's very very talented - based in Woking (and I'm hoping this link works) http://www.facebook.com/#!/cuppycakesdesigns. but if not, you'll find her as her header on facebook are these cakes :)
I'm almost up to date too on things that have slipped while on Jury Service ... it's so nice to get back into my routine again - even this horrid rain can't stop me from feeling happier.
