All things sweet...

Feeling a bit frustrated like I was always doing church things I decided it was time to get out and take up an extra curricular activity. No not hip-hop dancing or hand gliding, not drum lessons or a film making class but cake decorating. Yes I know it's an extreme sport and you can't imagine me taking part in such a dangerous activity - joking, it's probably exactly what you'd imagine me doing.

I joined a group of ladies (yes all ladies), of a similar age to each other (and not me),  in a little Welsh women's centre tucked away here in little Aberystwyth. Armed with my weapons, rolling pins, knives and cutters galore I set about moulding and kneading, spreading and smoothing various pieces of icing into shape. and the result, well see for your self...


...And after consumption...


And what followed was a frenzy of cake making, even more than I had ever done before





And so now I wait for the next class, hopefully in September.
