Fried potatoes and colslaw

I've been a very naughty girl. I just broke the rules and ate potatoe skins and onion and a little carrot - gorgeous creamy colslaw.... I was already having a flare up so I figured what the hell!

I've had a busy old week - lots to do and all sorts going on but last nights "chore" was really good fun. A friends husband asked me some time ago if I would make a birthday cake for her, and he really wanted it to have a doggy them as she absolutely adores their chocolate brown labradoodle, Bruno. He's gorgeous and I really wanted to do him proud so I made a big dark chocolate cake (no cocoa in there, just loads of really good quality dark chocolate melted in after it's cooled a little, just before you add the dry ingrediants) and decorated it with a chunky little fondant Bruno!

With a sparkling base, an edible ivory ribbon and bow, and a delicate row of edible pearls to give it the grown up touch I was really pleased with it and have been on tenderhooks all day today waiting for her reaction! Thankfully she liked it and I didn't ruin her birthday!!

So other things happening tonight: a drunk dog, a selection of internet installations, and a bit of sewing!

The drunk dog is actually a doorstop and he's cute as hell! You can see him on Facebook in the gorgeous page of Little White Cottage - I'm finding her designs REALLY hard to resist!!

I heartily recommend going and taking a look!

As I booked a table at a local fayre on Sunday 27th I think I ought to stop rabbiting and get crafting... We'll be at Wicken Village Hall from midday to 4pm and would love it if you came by to say hi!
