WARNING: FOOD ARTISTE AT WORK - BEST STAY AWAY!! [Feb. 26th, 2005|12:36 pm]

I am barely awake - might go and lie on the sofa for another hour...

Got home at 6.20am this morning, and realised I'd have to stay up for the postman as I was waiting on a couple of items which I knew had been despatched. As my parents are AWOL there would be noone about to answer the door for me and I wouldn't hear the bell in the loft...

So I dragged my duvet downstairs to the living room and have slept on the sofa. Postman No1 brought parcel no1 at 8.30am, after I had been asleep an hour and a half-ish. Postman No2 brought parcel no2 at 10.30am... Each time I was woken by the bell and crawled out of the duvet/fell off the sofa* to go and answer... My sister and Steve turned up at 12.30 to print something in the room behind me and have just left again...

I've had five and a half hours sleep with two interruptions... I can't really go back to sleep as I have a cake to create. I'm not doing the baking of cake bit - I've bought a coconut spong and a chocolate spong and am going to stick a choc layer of that one in the middle of the other and eat the spare (artist priviledge), then I'm going to stick a marzipan layer, then a white icing layer, paint the sides red, add strawberry 'lances' round the sides at intervals and a black ring at top and bottom with silver balls in...

What is it supposed to be?? An approximation of a drum... I hope it's convincing. I'm going to dent the top to bits as well and leave a couple of breadsticks on top for drumsticks...

Edit: Have used chupa chups lollies instead!

But I won't have time to go in town to go shopping (will do that in the morning before overtime 2-6pm then meeting Mike and off to the pub) - his Zildjian pint glass has arrived anyway - as I have to do this cake, and then am off to a fortieth birthday party at theatre in the evening, then off to see some Jazz band, then off to Black Catz.

I'd better bugger off and get creating...
(when I wake up - coffee, fag and croissant!)

................................

* Its a nice long big sofa - long enough to sleep stretched properly, but lists at a funny roll-back angle. I actually slept fairly comfortably with lots of cushions down one end!!

...............................

Btw, I've tried to tidy up my fiends list - basically remove ones who don't have me as a fiend anymore... If I've deleted a name I shouldn't have pwease let me know?:)

Sofas

I sleep on mine for the same reason sometimes. It's blue leather and long enough for me to stretch out on.

And on Wednesday mornings, It's easier to get off the sofa than out of bed!!

Re: Sofas

Funnily, I found that as well - perhaps I'll have to sleep on one more often!!

I once made a drum cake too, for my son's birthday- but that was a toy drum, with braid round top and bottom and red ribbon zigzagging round the side, and two red boiled-sweet lollipops as drumsticks.

Mine's sort of turned out like that...

It has four layers of victoria and chocolate sponge, covered in marzipan, then white royal ice icing, with piped black icing round the top and bottom, red fizzy 'lances' at the sides where the bits that hold both ends on a drum go, with a strawberry lace around the top and bottom over the black icing and silver balls all the way round.

I've painted the sides inbetween those bits with red food colouring and used two cola chupachups (boiled sweet) lollies for drumsticks too...

I've taken photos, but the flash disposable camera I have doesn't seem to have a working flash - hopefully it will still develop ok - and I can show you all... Mike can't wait to see it *grin*

Please, not watermelon flavour. Those particular scrumptiousness on a stick are my favourites, you know. I cannot get enough of them. They are my drug of choice these days!

Nooooo... They are too yummy - so I used the cola ones instead as the colour looked good;)
