Hello, I hope you are all having a lovely Monday (Yes I know Mondays suck but its 6pm lets chill now)
I have recently begun a course on sugar craft which takes place on a Monday night (so as you can imagine as you are reading this I am at the course learning something new) as I'm trying to start up a cake business so wanted to expand my skills. This makes my Mondays super hectic, I leave the house at 8am for work then straight from work go to the course and don't get home till 9pm. So I don't get to see my little boy that day or my husband but its only one day a week and its only a 10 week course so for the sake of progress I have to do these things.
The course so far is OK, I've learnt how to make roses but these kind of decorations are inedible. They are nice but a little bit dated I feel.

As the course progresses I'm hoping to do more modern even edible things so that I can use them on my cakes which will make them more desirable.
For a bit of background info - I started making cakes over a year ago but my progress has been very slow due to several reasons, I was never sure if I wanted to make this into a business, I then had my little boy and it took a while to get back on my feet due to postnatal depression (I may touch on that in another post) Now I'm back at work part time and over the PND I have got back into baking and am really trying to make this into a business which I love. If I can make this happen then I may even be able to quit my job fully but I think I'm a long way off that yet lol
My portfolio is getting bigger which is good and I have three wedding cakes under my belt now. My next upcoming challenges other than the sugar craft is a baby bump cake and a tank cake which I will share the results with you.
