My Creative Space

My creative space this week , I wish could say finds me resting on my laurels with the success of Sarah's rainbow cake last week, .......

the cake table spread - cake with butterflies and butterfly cupcakes.

 outside view of the actual cake - 
which stood about 25cm tall when all layers were added

and then the inside

 one slice was on the rather large size with each one serving 3 people

 .....but instead I am devising how I am going to make a Thomas the Tank Engine cake for Mia's 3rd birthday this Sunday. It was initially going to be an actual engine but since I  have been making cupcakes endlessley this week - 80 in total - I think the cake will morph into a number three cake with train tracks and Thomas on top. When baking has to be balanced with sewing baby sling orders, filling all the spoon orders and normal work, something has to give. I wish I was, but I am not Superwoman - or magic.
I had also planned to make it to a new craft group (new for me) in not quite my local area tonight, but instead fell asleep in Mia's bed while I was reading her some books, and woke up a couple of hours later - hence the late posting time of this.
I hope your week is creative and a little less hectic than mine (although mine has been delicious).
For relaxation, or inspiration, check out what other people are up to at Kootoyoo.
