I was kind of itching for the chance to use my Christmas present 🙂 . I was nervous that I’d be spending tons of money on pre-made sugar sheets in order to use this machine but it turns out that I can use whatever fondant I have and just roll it onto the mat itself. I sent Jared the picture of me using the machine while he was at work. He was happy that I was using it!
The cake was a real quickie but I did like the little details. In the middle of making the letters on the cutter I realised that the blade was broken and was chewing up my fondant and the mat. I took it back and got another one which ended up working just fine.
I was just going to have the Union Jack and the writing but then, at the last-minute, I sculpted a little suitcase with black straps just as a nice little element. The kids were impressed!
It was such a nice evening of family. I’m so glad that we were able to say good-bye to Jenny and wish her well. I hope that my love for her was shown in that cake and I can’t wait to see her again!
