PRODUCT REVIEW & CAKE!
Good afternoon my crafty friends
As the heading states I have a product review and a cake for you today!
I've wanted this tool for quite sometime and it was delivered a few days ago
I have the MONO eraser which is really good but as the Creative Detailer was getting so many positive comments I thought I would have one. I've mentioned several times that I have long standing rheumatoid disease (51 years) plus osteoarthritis and my thinking was that I would only need to hold this tool lightly and it would do the work for me, as in erase the odd ink mark that sometimes happens when I'm stamping....
Sadly it hasn't worked for me
So.... cake. As you know our grandson had his 12th birthday the very beginning of April and because of COVID-19 etc etc we've not seen him 'in the flesh' but today my son is bringing him to ours so Max can have his birthday present, Easter gift and, of course, his birthday cake. I must say that Max will be staying in dad's car and I will be at the front door with my son passing the presents and cake to him. Another year without cuddles, the same happened last year when I had shingles followed immediately with TB!
Some of you lovely people know that my hubby and I bought an established sugarcraft shop when I retired from the NHS, I also introduced card craft products too, my biggest passion. I wasn't going to personally make and decorate any cake orders as I had someone else to undertake that role, unfortunately it didn't work out and I was then making the odd cake order. Had it not been for my very talented hubby (I've trained him well) I would not have been able to do what I did, mostly the finishing touches. We did meet some very nice and supportive customers, and quite a few have become friends
I couldn't get anything boyish for sprinkles via Amazon, plenty choice for girls, so had to use the ones above. It's a 6" rainbow cake and stands 8" tall. I put the candles around the edge to try and make it more 'boyish', kind of like a 'sputnik' thingy ma-jig.... that's my excuse haha
