Birthday Boy...


My hubby had a big birthday on Weds a so we celebrated it with all the family yesterday. 
My lovely friend Eileen wanted to make the cake which was delicious and I had an idea of what to put on the top.  We are into 1940's weekends where we dress up and one of Andy' outfits is a Petty Officers uniform, so I contacted my very talented friend Sarah Pitcher of Character Creations who makes the most amazing toppers from polymer clay and sent a picture of Andy in his uniform and asked to her make me a topper for his cake....

                                      This is Andy....

                                                         
                                                         
              A close up of Sarah's fabulous work and the finished cake what a great likeness.....even the touch of grey hair around his ears and his glasses  



The ribbon around the cake just says Hand Made with love which was very apt considering everything was handmade with love......
Andy was absolutely thrilled and thought the topper was amazing...please go and visit Sarah's webpage...her work is truly fabulous....thank you Sarah.

Anne

That is brilliant, Sarah is very talented - glad the cake was nice too. I'm sure Andy was thrilled and I assume not too disappointed he didn't get the chocolate caterpillar cake he thought was destined for him!
