Wedding Cake 'Maryam' - in pink

Well....  first of all you've never done a particular design before and then two come along at once! LOL!!
Wedding Cake 'Maryam' - which I only did for the first time a few weeks ago - but this time with pink roses and ribbon, not peach.  I couldn't decide which photo I liked the best - so I've uploaded all of them.  First of all, there's the black background that most of the cakes on my site have.  Then there's the shot of the cake at the venue, and I really do think the blue complements the cake very well.  There's something about the long shot of the cake that I love - but the incredibly high ceilings and fantastically tall windows make the cake look tiny and almost a bit lost.  In fact, one comment is that it looks like a little cake on the floor in front of a door!   And finally, the last shot is with a 'filter'.  It' just slightly enriches the blueness of the wallpaper.
Which is your favourite?

Congratulations to Ben and all his family on the occasion of his Bar Mitzvah.  There must be 30 football teams closer to where Ben lives than Manchester City, but he's an avid fan and nothing is going to change that!

Pie Chart Cake

 My son's form tutor - a maths teacher - left the school for a new career at the end of term and I decided I'd like to make him a cake.  It had to be something simple, as I didn't have a chance to start decorating it until 11pm and it had to be taken in the next morning!!  My friend came up with the suggestion of a pie chart, which I thought was a great idea...  the 'key' lists things that are associated with him - so red = inspiring, blue = fun, yellow = disorganised (yeah, I'd intended that to be a bit smaller than it actually was, but... hey-ho!!) green = we'll miss you and orange = caring.  He was a very popular teacher and I know the students will miss him very much.
