My last order for our time over here in Texas, a Frozen cake for a gorgeous 3 year old. This cake was super simple, using an Elsa doll as the base. I only had a day to get this one together and thankfully nothing went wrong!
Halloween has hit us again! It really has come around quickly this year, it seems like only yesterday that we were organising last year’s party and treats. This year will be a much quieter affair, just a few extra kids staying over, no big party.
An Englishman, an Irishman, and an Australian walk into a pub…… Ha, ha, we’ve all heard the jokes! This is exactly what happened here in Fort Worth last week.
