Wedding cake decoration
Sorry, been a bit busy, well actually it was lack of sleep.
Steven's been a bit of a pickle in sleeping, and to top it all next door has had their grandson staying, who decided to wake up screaming a couple of nights running, for about 30/40 mins around 3am. So with Steven getting me up, goodness knows how many times and the baby sceaming, I've felt like death warmed up most of the week, and things took a little longer in completing, especially the accounts.
Anyway bet you didn't think that these two bodies my hubby made, starting with 2 pieces of screwed up tin foil and covered with epoxy putty...
could became this...
Yep, he made Donald and Daisy duck from 2 tins of tin foil and some epoxy putty.
It all came about that when Sam and Matt got engaged, Sam joked, asking her dad, if he could make them a cake topper of Donald and Daisy Duck, as they both love those characters. So over 2 years later, in December 2011, hubby secretly started it, and it was finally completed in September 2012. (remember he works away all week, and on some weekends, he didn't have the time or not in the mood for working on it).
They were presented with it after the wedding rehearsal and as Clive had taken photos while making it, and had put them on a CD with music, to present it to them with the model. They were/are chuffed to bits with it, as am I, and here it is on the cake that was made by Matt's mum.
We had to smile when we saw it, as she had decided to make a daisy shape cake because she knew Sam loved Daisy Duck, so what a double surprise for the kids, to have Donald and Daisy on top of a daisy shape cake, lol... TOTALLY UNIQUE...

I enjoy making cards and have done since my auntie introduced me to it back in 2004 by sending me and my son lovely home made cards for our Birthdays...
