As no one felt able to make me a birthday cake for my birthday I decided to make myself one, and I have had my eye on some Beehive cakes I saw online, so this is what I was able to create.
Close up of a little bee, sprung on florists wire.
I can tell you that getting the icing onto the beehive shape is harder than it looks!!!My layers of beehive kept sliding out of places, and I had a struggle on my hands stopping the icing from creasing! But eventually I succeeded.
Not one to go with the normal buffet and disco, we hired a band and had a barn dance, which is maximum interaction for everyone!!!
Having chosen a nice top for the occasion I realised I needed some flat shoes to match which I could dance in, and nothing within my budget (cheap!) caught my eye, so I figured I would just customise some! I bought a pair of plain black ballet pumps and a necklace that was reduced in the sale. I chopped the necklace up and sewed them around the edge, and then in a kind of triangle at the front.
Here's the finished pair. I felt like Dorothy with my magic slippers!
And finally here's an action shot of me and Honey dancing!
