Hi peeps! If you saw the MFT blog the other day you'll know there have been some changes to the design team. Sadly I won't be carrying on in an official capacity, but that doesn't mean there won't be lots of inspiration still coming your way!

I'm super excited to be working with Verve, so you'll be seeing even more of my fave Verve creations and...

When one door closes, another one opens (and sometimes more than one!) so watch this space! I have some FUN things coming up in the next few weeks. I can't wait to share what I've been working on and who I'm getting to work WITH!

The other big change around here is we are now parents to a ONE YEAR OLD! I can't believe it, everyone says that first year goes so fast, but it's something you have to experience to really know how true that is. We had a huge family party, with everyone flying in to celebrate Jackson and it was fab! I'll leave you with some pics from the big day and some of the things I worked on :-)

I made a five layer chocolate cake filled with raspberry jam and chocolate buttercream. The cow was moulded from gum paste tinted with gel colours. The outer frosting was vanilla and raspberry. This was yum!

Chocolate Caramel cupcakes with toppers

Thank you card for gift bags. These were gifts for the adults, so included lots of yummy things!
Tags for gift bags. I added some homemade chocolate truffles, coffee sachets, choc dipped spoons, keyrings with Jackson's photo and other little goodies.

Smash cake!
