Being a bit crafty.

Now I know that I have previously made it abundantly clear that I can in no way be described as a crafty blogger or in fact a crafty person in any way, shape or form. My poor attempt at my sons birthday cake cleverly highlights my ineptitude in this department. Bless him, he is so confused now, he thinks Thomas the Tank Engine is round and green, I fear I may have scarred him for life.

So it was with the very recent memory of my cake making failure seared in my mind and with not a little trepidation that I agreed to make a ‘cake’ of an entirely different kind.

Actually when I say ‘agreed’ that would be wrong as that would imply that someone had asked me to do it when in fact no one made me do it, I wasn’t coerced into it in any way, I wasn’t tricked. No, I just decided then and there on the spot, before I knew it the words were out of my mouth and there was no taking them back. What on earth possessed me to say that I would make a ‘nappy cake’ given that I have never made one before, I will never know, but there  it was I’d put it out there, there was no going back.

Fast running friend is due to give birth imminently to a little Aussie Bub and so myself and a friend from playgroup  thought it would be a nice idea to organise a surprise baby shower for her and that’s where the nappy cake comes in.

I have got to say though, given the fact I didn’t have the faintest idea what I was doing, I was pretty impressed by my very deeply hidden crafty skills.


What do you think? Do I pass the crafty test?

It’s a little bit wonky but for a first attempt I am pretty pleased with it.

Do you like my *ahem* ‘homemade’ cupcakes too? . . .

Ok ok they’re not but 1 out of 2 aint bad!

  1. Well I’d be pleased to receive it, wonky or not!

  2. I think you did brilliantly! and after all, it’s the thought that counts, right? or is that just something those of us who are so UNcrafty say to make ourselves feel better? ha!
