This is what i used my limited amount of sparetime for in 2010.
Many dummies in between, but still - a lot of calories!
Such a tastefull hobby this is.
Fun and interesting things happened in my small cakeworld in 2010.
The Saints Cake was posted on a NFL-forum, and the feedback was quite interesting. Someone called it a decorated orga** - Spoken by a true Saints-fan.
Another one on the forum saw this website and compared my work with Ace of Cakes and Cake Boss! -Of course hugely exaggerated, and i promise not to let it get to my head ;)
I got a mail from Jackie, asking if i had anything for the new Cakecentral Magazine -Wow. I was on holiday at the time, and saw the mail too late to do anything about it. Not that i would be able to make anything as fabulous as the projects in Cakecentral Magazine - ever.
Then there was the book. It was a pleasant surprise when it got published, and my pictures really were in it! Plus i still can´t get over, such fine company! I mean... Lindy Smith? -Cake Lava? - And then Piamarianne from Slangerup... that´s an odd feeling!
For Scandinavian Cakeshow 2010 i was invited to bring a cake for table of honour. The honour was all mine! :)
A lovely cake-shop, Sofisticake opened in Roskilde. I get to exibit my dummies there and a local newspaper made an interview with the owner, publicing large photos of my Oilily-dummy. Costumers there sometimes actually asks to buy my dummies. I don´t know what anybody will use a 5-tier weddingcake for in a private household, but i take it as a fine recognition of my work.
One of my idols, Colette Peters clicked by Cakeryblog. Recieving an email from Colette herself - the maker of cakes to the Clinton´s amongst others almost made me a little dizzy :)
Finally, i had a cake on Cakewrecks! That would make any cake-maker shiver, but fortunatelly it was in the Sunday Sweets-section :)
Even though i don´t live off the cakes or run a business, i find it fascinating to see how many people come by my blog everyday. I´d like to thank you all for that. My hope is, that you get inspired by my work, as i get inspired around the internet.
Here´s hoping for lots of fun in a wold of sugar for everybody in 2011!
