MadeItMonday: Of Course It’s Cake.

Welcome to #MadeItMonday, where I post something I’ve made in the previous week, and where you can join in and post something you made too! The rules are easy: post a pic somewhere of something you’ve made in the last week (ish; let’s say in the last month as the hard-and-fast) and tag it. Sit back and enjoy scrolling through all the beautiful things we’ve collectively created, and celebrate the fact that humans can be awesome! πŸ™‚

This one was pretty epic. Cake for 135+ people, plus a separate one to deal with dietary restrictions, in blue and white and silver, with a graduation topper. I knew it was going to be about a 16 hr cake, since that’s how long comparable wedding cakes have taken, but did this mean I managed my time well? UH, NO. I spent 90% of the Sunday before it was due ignoring it, and then had to pull a near-all-nighter on Monday night to get it done in time – and I STILL had to race home after work on Tuesday with only an hour to make a new batch of buttercream (takes 30 mins), split and fill and decorate the dietary restrictions cake, and load everything into the car.

It all turned out okay in the end, but MAN. The last two weeks have been ridiculous, and I really didn’t need to start them by going to be on Monday at 430am (which is actually Tuesday but so whatever).


What have you made this week? (It doesn’t have to be fancy!!) Don’t forget to tag your contribution, or even better, leave a link in the comments!! I love seeing what inspiring things other people have made πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
