Red, White and Blue Layer Cake 2

Not only is it The Royal Wedding this Saturday it is also the final of the FA Cup and our patriotic Red, White and Blue Layer Cake is a super simple make perfect for any celebratory occasion. The secret to making a great Red, White and Blue Layer Cake is to use gel food colouring. that way you get a fabulous colour but also a light sponge with great taste.  I am going to admit that this is a very rough and ready cake and it would also look fab with less icing as a naked cake. Red, White and Blue Layer Cake Ingredients for the cake 375g/13oz butter or margarine softened to room temperature 375g/13oz more »

DIY Clay Star Candle Holders

DIY Clay Star Candle Holders 6

These DIY Clay Star Cadle Holders were inspired by some we saw when we were on our recent holiday in Holland.  I knew then that we could recreate them using our FIMO Air Light (microwavable) clay and finally got around to making them this week. We made our DIY clay star candle holders the perfect size for an old box of red Christmas tree candles which were my mum’s (the size that does in our twirling angel.  We have had these candles for the last five years but never used them as we didn’t have ant suitably sized candle holders for them.  30 minutes with the boys and we have more than enough and more »
