This weekend Shane and I went to Dullstroom for our friends combined birthday party. We spent the weekend on a beautiful farm that had the most amazing views, with grass and mountains for days. There were about 24 of us altogether and there were a lot of card games, chops, drinks, potjies, music, chocolate, flings and fun.
Every now and then getting out of the city is the best thing for you. I think it should be done at least once a month. Yes please.
Here are some photos I took on the Saturday night and some photos of the cat themed Toblerone cake I made for the birthday girls and a peak at the clay cats I made as part of Jo’s birthday present. You know how she owns 2 of the sweetest, flattest faced cats around? Well I thought I would immortalise them for her in Daz clay.
They were super fun to make and the best part about it was the smell. The second I opened the foil wrappers it took me straight back to my kinder years. I almost ate a bit of it too.
Here is a picture of the Toblerone chocolate cake I baked. I’m going to do an entirely different post for this guy the next time I bake it, It was a really nice, soft cake and the icing was ‘I’m going to stick my face into the mixing bowl” kind of good.
And finally here are some photos of Olie and Harold, Jo’s cats made out of clay. I slammed the front of the head part on the table to get just the right amount of flatness. I included a photo of the actual Olie and Harold just so you can see how accurate my creations are.
