Cake Mode

A few very sweet friends have been asking me why I hav'nt been posting in the last week.I've been in "cake mode" as Karen Boe phrased it.  : ) 
It was only a two tier cake and I used fresh flowers for decoration,I made this for our neighbours and we were also invited to the wedding so that kept me busy for a few days.Our daughter is involved with a charity called Community Needs and I was also helping out.I donated a few of my paintings ,so I was busy getting them framed and ready.I  donated the hire of my vases and silk flowers for their charity event on Sunday. I think they raised about £1200 for Africa.Alot of the work was carried out by local kids of all backgrounds,its given them skills and a huge boost to their confidence.Not to mention keeping them out of trouble.
 So I've had quite alot going on this past week,its all been good ,but I've also been doing some soul searching about which direction my art is going in.I think I'm on the right track ,but I also want to explore different mediums from next year and possibly  enrol for some short courses running in and around London.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a great time over the holidays and health and happiness for the New Year.Cheers and thankyou for all your kindness,support and wonderful comments over the past year.

  10. Thank you for your good wishes and I hope 2012 will be a year of hopes realized (in painting, I have no doubt!). This cake is amazing, so beautiful that it must be difficult to cut into pieces. But I read that to share, you're ready to do a lot ... Generous Azra !

  11. Hai Azra. I thought I already became a follower of your blog, but I wasn't. But now I am! :)
    You should make a living by making these beautiful cakes. Can you send a little piece to Holland so I can taste it? Just a tienie wienie little piece in an enveloppe?
    I wish you and your family all the best for 2012!
