My sweet shot


Poem by Jean Pullman

True beauty is in the way she laughs
True beauty is in her eyes
True beauty is how she acts
True beauty is inside
True beauty is unseen
True beauty is only felt
True beauty is not mean
True beauty is herself
True beauty can't be cruel
True beauty is bare
True beauty within you
True beauty is always there
True Beauty can't be covered with makeup
True beauty means true love
True beauty can't be baked up
True beauty is the flight of a dove
True beauty has no flaws
For True beauty is all that matters after all

Sweet Shot Day

Sunday, May 22, 2011

Decisions, decisions....


Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself


It's well after midnight and I am still not sure if I made right decisions, did I choose the right photo, the right name, only time will show, I am not talking about the photo for this post; however it is to do something with this shot. I should stop worrying, everything will be OK and if not I can always change things.

Did you ever wanted to change something that it was already out there and you weren't sure if you made the right decisions?

Birthday Shoe Cake

If your daughter or a young lady that you know is having a birthday soon, why not try to make a shoe cake.
It is easy , my daughter helped me with decorating so it will be fun project for the two of you.

What you need:

  • sponge cake
  • jam
  • sugar paste -different colours
  • whipped cream ( optional)
  • edible sugar shapes for decorating a cake
  • icing sugar

To make shoes:
  • choose three different sugar paste colours
  • use icing sugar when you rolling sugar paste, it won't stick and will be easier to shape
  • cut out  shape of shoes similar to below
  • stick two soles ( if you using two different colours)
  • make heels and attach them to soles
  • decorate with some sugar shapes

  • For your sponge cake, you will need probably at least 250 g of sugar paste, but it depends on the size of the cake you are using.
  • Before you start decorating, cut your cake in three layers ( two is fine as well)  spread jam and whipped fresh cream between the layers.
  • Spread some icing sugar and roll a tin layer of sugar paste, it will have to cover the whole cake
  • Spread a tin layer of jam on top and the sides of the cake, it will help to keep the sugar paste is place
  • Next step is to transfer your rolled sugar paste on top of the cake
  • And then decorate with sugar shapes

Attach the shoes to your cake, I just dipped my finger in look warm water and spread just a bit of it under the sole and the heel to make it stick more.

Your cake is ready, just add the candles and enjoy!!!

The cake I made with my daughter was for her 11th birthday, when her friends seen it they really liked it and they said we have to make similar ones for their birthdays. So I think it was a success.

I am linking my project with these craft parties:

Wild Garden Flowers

We should cut the grass in our back garden, but these little wild flowers look so nice so it was decided  not to do it yet and I had a chance to take few lovely shots.


Please check this great give away that Captivus is having. If you are going to take photos of a baby it would be great to have one of them. It is a newborn prop and it looks great. Click on the image below
