In the meantime it has been a busy time in the kitchen for me. I have been fortunate enough to get several christmas cake orders; you know, those yummy, rich English fruit cakes covered in marzipan and...you guessed it, fondant! They need about a month or more to properly mature, so my cellar is getting crowded with all the cakes that are stored there. Also, I have been given a great opportunity to promote my cakes and cupcakes with TLS, a brand new theatre group. Check out their website for more information at www.tlsfrankfurt.com. They are putting on their first play, "Dickens by Candlelight", a modern interpretation of "A Christmas Carol" in Sindlingen. Performances run for a month and I get to sell my cakes at the intervals! Great opportunity, but lots and lots of hard work! On top of all that I have been asked to make their cast party cake for the middle of December.
With all these orders my family is in serious danger of being neglected this Christmas.......but nevertheless I am very excited and full of all kinds of creative ideas at the moment. I am also itching to practice making carnations and gerbera daisies; flowers that to date I have very little experience with, but would love to be able to make properly. All in good time, all in good time!
