Competition Results!

Well, gave me #14, which is Kira Bennett! Congratulations - will message you now! 

I do hope you share, but if you want to scoff them whilst everyone else watches on, it's your prerogative! 

And for those only interested in the cake pops, I swear I'll be back soon with lots more images for you. It's been a really hectic week, and this weekend is just as bad!

Competition Time!

Well, I've had a Twitter comp, and a Facebook comp, so maybe now it's time for one on the blog! 

I don't get a lot of comments on here, but I'd love for this to change, so starting now, let's get some interaction!

I'm thinking maybe if you leave your real name below, and 'like' the Facebook page, I'll be able to work out who is who and contact you from there. I'll post the randomly-drawn winner of the giveaway on the 20th May on both here and Facebook (and Twitter). If you're a tweep, feel free to leave your username and I'll contact you that way. If you're not on either, feel free to leave your email address but with (at) instead of @ and dotcom or dotcouk instead of .com/ - that way the spambots won't getcha!

What's the prize? Well, I'm thinking a box of 6 photo pops - your choice of photo on a cake pop! Makes a great gift if you want to share, and you get to pick the flavour. Can't say fairer than that, no?

Don't think you're limited to pictures of people, either - am more than happy to put anything onto a cake pop. Yes, even questionable things, as long you're going to use them responsibly and not scare little kiddies or anything. Seriously - cake pops must not be used for evil. 

Alrighty then - get commenting! If you want to follow the blog while you're at it, then even better!

Green fingers, Rapunzel, birthdays & weddings and more - it's all go this week!

Great news! A replacement upload cable has arrived (thank you eBay!) so let the picture sharing festivities begin. Be warned - there are plenty today!

Well, I finally had a chance to put an idea of mine into fruition. After a client requested a watering can I suggested these little cuties to go with them:

Teeny tiny seedling pops!

My other big new invention was the little birthday cake pop, complete with candles. I've already had three orders for it since putting it up on the Facebook page a few days ago. Sure to be a big hit!

And, being British, how I could I not step up and make some Royal Wedding cake pops?! If you look very closely, you'll see that I hand-painted the little heart cake topper with the Union Jack. Yeah, that was fiddly. Thankfully we don't get many Royal weddings so hopefully won't have to do that again for a while! As long as Harry doesn't start courting the foxy Pippa Middleton, that is...

Hmmm... what else? Well, a client asked for Tangled themed cake pops so I came up with these Rapunzel heads. I was umming and ahing about how to do her hair, and then suddenly it hit me - loop it down the stick! 

And how could I forget my little babes in bonnets? Made for a babyshower last week, I tried to make them all a bit different. Some have crazy hair, others just a curl or a straggly fringe.

And now for some custom orders. First up, a Rudy Project cycle helmet. Sadly there is a bit of glare from the glaze so you can't quite see the detail:
A trowel -yeah, this one wasn't too great and chances are you'd never guess what it was, despite the subtle clue I placed next to it! Think the handle needs to be longer, although I have to say that it was *really* hard to do. I much prefer the watering can and seedlings I did for the other order!

Some Moshlings:

Almost done - I promise! Thanks for staying with me thus far! And finally, rocket numbers and hand-painted rugby balls!

And there you have it - lots of pretty pictures! 

Thanks again for taking the time to have a peek. Would love to see some comments!
