Santa is here

1st Santa

 2nd Santa

I had a lovely Sunday morning, making Santa's for the Christmas cakes, last year daughter and I did a small course making cake toppers, we both made Rudolf, it was fun. So after a search on Pintrest, I choose this Santa sitting down, the basic shapes are the same as Rudolf, but I have never done a face before. Daughter's cake is now finished, she has a pretty band to go around the side, our cake has it's marzipan cover, I will ice it next weekend.
I finishes reading A gift for dying, M J Arlidge, it was a brilliant book, I could not put it down, I have loved every book by this author.
Strickly was good, we enjoyed Saturday night, and on Sunday we felt the right person left, we can't wait for next weekend, we always have a Strickly party night together on finals night.
I am trying to cheer myself up, the only way I can lift the gloom is to do things and perk myself up, Will and George is due today with mummy, nothing planned, thank you for your comments and understanding, I don't get down often, and it's not easy to sort yourself out. I am trying each day to do one joyful thing, in hope it will lift my spirits.


  1. The cakes look fabulous. I was sorry with the result on Strictly, we've now got two people in the final who have previously danced in the West End. I like to see non dancers improve week on week and be rewarded for their efforts. I'm sure a visit from Will and George will be lovely. We all have these down times and there's really nothing you can do about it, it's just a case of waiting for it to pass, as it will given time.

  2. Your Santa looks great! My cake will just have a shop bought decoration, I'm no good and making figures, lol
    I do hope you will start to feel better soon, It can be hard to get yourself out of a slump sometimes, I know what it's like, you can't put your finger on what it is but that cloud just doesn't lift. Take care and keep trying to do some positive things.

  3. I love the Santa toppers ... very clever.

    Keep going with the daily joyful thing. I've been doing that for some time now and it really does work.

  4. We all get down sometimes. At least you're taking positive measures to try to bring yourself out of it. Good for you. I found Dr Bach's Rescue Remedy helped me through a difficult time.

  5. Your Santa's look wonderful! The last time I made cake toppers was in cookery at school! Enjoy your Strickly party. Best, Jane x

  6. I think your Santa's look great.

    I'm looking forward to the Strictly final, I hope you enjoy your Strictly party.

    All the best Jan
