It is raining here today but this cockatoo appeared outside my window.
We have had weeks and weeks of sunshine so it is good to see some rain.
Meanwhile I promised to give the links for the felt mice on my daughter's wedding cake and the recipe for the cake itself.
I found the pattern for the little mice at Helen's Bustle and Sew.
I used the recipe for Curtis Stone's Carrot Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting. I mixed a double batch of cake mixture and cooked it in two 20cm round tins. (This did mean grating 6 carrots!)
I whipped up a triple batch of the frosting. I used it to fill the two cakes and then covered the double layer. I used store bought icing flowers to decorate.
P:-) and I are off to Melbourne tomorrow. Sadly my beloved Uncle Jim passed away and we are off to the memorial service on Tuesday but we plan to spend a week or so down there. We are taking our caravan and staying at Wantirna Caravan Park.
I have been to Melbourne a few times visiting relatives but this time I am being a real tourist and have bought the Lonely Planet book on Melbourne and Victoria.
We plan to head home on Saturday 1st June so I may not write my next post for 10 days or so.
