I miss my buns!

For many years I was known as the one who made the cakes... I carried on baking after I got sick and even got into doing cake commissions for special occassions which was something I loved so much even though I found it incredibly nerve wracking.  To be entrusted with the focal point of someone's celebration is a really big deal and like with any commission, you can never be one hundred percent sure that the image in your head that you're looking to create is really anything like the one in the head of the person paying the bill!
These days as it's too risky for me to commit to doing a special occassion cake in case I end up in hospital and ruin the party so I just take the time to look back at the buns from history, and the few I still get to make for family celebrations.  What really makes me laugh is that of all the beauties I've created over the years, the cake that gets looked at from all over the internerd is a kiddie one based on Mr Tumble. I wasn't happy with the finished result as the head wouldn't go on the figure right, but I was told by the lovely lady who ordered it (my friend, and once-upon-a-time boss!) that her little man absolutely loved it and THAT'S what counts, no matter what I think!  Anyways, thought I'd share some of my buns while I dream... enjoy!

Share the love and win!!

Hey lovely floaty people! As it transpires that even sharing  picture on FB will be likely to get our page deleted by the governers, instead to enter our giveaway just please leave me a comment on this blog as to what you fancy winning and why and you'll be entered into the draw when we hit 2600 likers.
If you choose to tell your friends about the blog and the LFCC facebook page at that's fab but not necessary for your entry to count and should be considered completely your choice and unrelated to this giveaway! Ok... sorted....

So what's up for grabs?  Well, you can take your pic of any LFCC creations up to a value of £15. That could be a piece of jewellery, a textile creation, or perhaps something created just for you. And if the thing you choose is priced at less than £15 then keep choosing til you hit that figure! As per the voucher above though, this does include P&P!

I really appreciate all the support of my floaty crew so please do get involved in this opportunity for me to give something back!
