Handmade Monday

Hello everyone! My name is Maxine, and this is my first ever post! I have been bullied into starting a blog by my daughter Anna (puppyfly boutique)

I've been busy making some cakes recently which I'd like to share:

 This I made for a friends birthday, who particularly likes rabbits:

And this ballerina was for a raffle at the hospice where I work - but I'm not very keen on her. I think she looks like she's lost her teeth!

Thank you for reading and please check out handmade monday


  1. Wow the cakes are lovely!
    elcome to the addictive world of blogging!

  2. Beautiful! I am always in awe of people who make pretty cakes. I made my kids cakes back in the day. They never complained (boys will eat anything sweet) but they were NOT PRETTY! LOL yours are stunning. Welcome aboard. Glad to see you here.

  3. Your cakes are gorgeous! Welcome to the world of blogging - hope you enjoy it!!

  4. Welcome to the blogging world, the cakes are really lovely. Have I mentioned that I am a highly qualified cake tester and will often taste for friends.... well it was worth a try!

  5. This is amazing! I couldn't help looking as soon as I saw cake... it's a compulsion, really.

  6. 'The ballerina who lost her teeth' sounds like a children's story.

    Your cakes look great and I can't believe Anna is a bully :o)

  7. Well done Anna for making you share your lovely work with us. I am sure the ballerina lost her teeth from eating too much yummy cake!! (Maybe there is a lesson for us all there - did I ever tell you I am a very slow learner LOL!!)

    Welcome to the world of blogging, looking forward for keeping up with more cakes and chat.
