At the end of June we’ve celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary, that was the most important thing that happened last month. Besides this, we had a packed month with 3 wonderful events and a short holiday. I will talk about them a bit further in the post.
For our anniversary, I’ve created the cake we wanted for our wedding, decorated with fondant rose petals. At our wedding there was a mix up and the decor wasn’t what we were looking for, still nice, but different. As for the flavour, I made it foret noire, a little different than the chocolate cake we actually had.
I like how the cake looked and it was delicious too. I think the roses are perfect considering it’s the first time I use this cutter for roses. Last time I made them free hand and now they look much better as my technique improved. I can’t wait to make more roses and more fondant shapes for cakes. I find it relaxing.
I mentioned I went to 3 events last month: the 40th anniversary of Williams at Silverstone, Bridgestone event, and Flywheel Festival at Bicester Heritage. I had a great time at all of them, do have a look if you missed the posts.
Other highlights of June were: completing 1 year of daily smoothies (and/or soups) and training for a 5k race for this month with Roots Collective.
One of the great things in our holiday was to be able to walk the dog on a public footpath next to wheat fields. As a golf course was near the fields, we managed to find 11 golf balls in the fields. My husband and I had a laugh telling Festus: “Find the golf ball boy”, really, try saying that fast. Of course, it was us who found the golf balls, as they are too small and we were afraid he might swallow one in excitement. You can see pictures of Festus in the fields on his blog.
