A Christmas tag and cakes

I think we all know the saying "red sky at night shepherds delight, red sky in a morning shepherds warning" well the sky was soooo red this morning. Wonder what the weather will do today, I know its cold cause I have been out for my walk already.

I have been for my freshstart appointment, smoke free for more than 3 weeks. I am so pleased and then I went to the shop and saw all the cigarettes lined up for sale....but I didnt buy any. I got some boring milk and bread instead.

Last Friday whilst I was waiting for Paul to come home I had a play with some pastry cutters and made all these
All I needed to to them was to make the cakes, which I did and here they are

I just used a normal fairy cake receipe, a creamy cheese icing topping and decorated them, can you see all the glitter. I promise you that they were tasty, now I still have lots of decorations but my mixer broke oppps. Sandra came to the rescue to lend me hers but I still need to go and get myself a little mixer and make a few more cakes to use up the rest of the decorations.

How about this for a Christmas Tag
Lovely isnt it? I must admit that either Sue, Lynn or Elvie made this for me and I know that in a few hours I will find out who it was.

Off for a little more chilling now, thanks for having a read and have a great day.
