Let them eat cake (providing you don’t burn it)

Confessions of a ‘Slummy Mummy’ is one week old today yay! Thanks to you wonderful lot we have had 500+ hits. I reckon we should celebrate with cake, what do you think? I thought I would share with you all some baking highs and lows of mine in the hope that you will understand why I’m such a pioneer of the shop bought variety.

Never let it be said that I’m lacking in imagination, in fact I have big plans whenever there’s a family celebration on the horizon. As the day rolls closer I somehow convince myself I’m a cake maker extraordinaire. I Google images and ideas, view the odd YouTube tutorial and purchase far more ingredients, decorations and equipment than humanly necessary. In fact, each cake I set out to create inevitably hits the £30+ spending mark, somewhat counterproductive don’t you think?

Especially when I then have visions of others being so overwhelmed by my talents that I’m obliged to open my own bakery in order to cater for their demands. I must confess now however, that no one has ever asked me to bake them a cake and I’m pretty sure I hear a little groan escape my husband each time I mention I’m going on a baking spree (I’m sure he’s thinking about the washing up though….. I’m an artist Darhhhling, I do not wash dishes….. yes, I could put them in the dishwasher but, once again, like always, its full of clean stuff!!)

I may have the er… physique of a baker, I may have the imagination of a baker; I may even have these cool metal icing nozzles and piping bags like a baker. But, I’m afraid to say, I AM NO BAKER……mergy

The idyllic image

What you see here may look idyllic, but like all good bloggers I edited my life slightly,

My cupboards are in fact a mess, every cake has a story and I’d like to share the truth with you…..

fail

This is what my cupboard really looks like!! and while the outcome of the other two pictures seems good (burger cake), id like to point out that this took 3 days, 3 attempts, £40 and tasted like rotten turkey……. shhhhhh don’t tell though
