One in a Minion....Birthday cake catch up!

Just because I haven't been posting about what I have been making does not mean the last 2 years have been devoid of all creativity. My little lad is 6 this month so next two posts will be cake catch up. He wanted a minion party for his 4th birthday. A batman cake for his 5th and the request is in for a slugterra cake for birthday number 6. I am on the case. But back two years ago....






This was a mega stress but I was fairly pleased in the end. The eye band covers the join in the yellow fondant which made it a lot easier to get a nice finish on. Often I look back at things I made and think it wasn't quite as nice as I remembered but I am still fairly happy with this one!

Anxiety

The rock in my ribs robs me of sleep
Solid and unyielding,
In the stillness
No quiet mind, no quiet time.
Tick tick goes the clock
Like a heart
Carrying away hope with every beat
Wave after wave after wave after wave
It is a tide that does not go out
The rock in my ribs robs me of sleep
