I've decided that I've been making myself a little too busy with cake decorating and am therefore semi-retiring and will be just doing the odd cake here and there for friends and family but not taking on every single one. I know it'll be hard for me to say no because I do enjoy decorating but for the sake my my sanity and my relationships I think it's best if I try not to take on too much!
That leads me to an exciting announcement. In case you hadn't seen it yet I bought myself a domain name YAY! I am now lydiabakes.com. It's so simple and easy to remember. No more dot blogspot dot com! Yaaaay! It also marks a new beginning for me as I'm going to be blogging less about cakes and more about general baking and kitchen tips. My friend and wonderful graphic designer, Danelle, is working on a grand blog redesign with me and I cannot wait to share it with you all!
So here it is, my (sort of) final cake. It's a rugby field cake made for my work mates son. Vanessa says that he is a big Blues supporter but upon picking it up she told me they're not playing so well (I wouldn't know I don't follow rugby really!) but her son supports them no matter what. A true fan!
