 Basics Foundation Day 1

You know those weeks that come along every now and again that literally knock you sideways and leave you grasping for the pinot? Sound familiar? Well, even we of the cake world have weeks such as these, with this one being the shining example. Not that anything went wrong, or even got close, it was just one of those times when the fruits of much labour all seemed to culminate at once in an almighty bang! But if you follow us regularly you'll know that this is pretty much how we roll and we wouldn't have it any other way (okay maybe not ALL the time!) I see weeks like these as a great example of just how tight our team is, and I love watching the magic that can all too often come from chaos...not too unlike the Big Bang Theory really.

Amid the madness of deadlines and  melting cake (this humidity is pretty much cake kryptonite) we also held our first Basics Foundation for the year, with one of the lovliest groups I have had the pleasure of meeting. I have a love-hate relationship with our foundation course, in that I love the oppurtunity to get to know our students a little more over the course of a week, but I then hate it when they go! This super-talented bunch were treated to lessons from Stuart and Adam and produced some truly great work. Can't wait to see you guys again soon!

Day 2 with Stuart

Day 5 and the Magnolia Cake with Adam (looking at this photo we all realised just how tall Adam is!) 

...And someone not so vertically blesed - Ritzy and her larger-than-life cake

As always however, the Dream Team came through with their usual brilliance. I am in love with this Elvis cake!

No we're not employing minors, the fabulous Betty's youngest stopped by this week for a lesson from Adam
