Gone Fishin’

Fishing and computers… ?  Hmmm…. Isn’t it funny how some people affect the course your life takes. When I first came to Ireland on holidays 16 years ago, I thought I’d try my hand at living in Galway for a while and went to print off my CV (Resumé) at a photo lab.  The manager printed it off for me and after having a chat he read it and offered me a job!  Things happen for a reason sometimes and living in Ireland always seemed to just fit for me.  So when I got a call from this man’s wife a couple of weeks ago asking me to make his 50th birthday cake how could I say no!?  Coming up with a design was another thing though.  I was trying to get creative with boats and computers and digital fish and computer chips and finally ended up with a fishing basket and a laptop.  Sometimes the obvious just works – plus this way I could do bits of it well in advance and take a bit of the pressure off of...

Gold and Best in Class!

Here’s my piece for the Dublin Sugarcraft Show in Dublin won Gold and Best in class. An amazing weekend. The 1916 collaboration was on display with my harp included. I was able to spend days, with some of my favourite cakers, putting the Away with the Fairies exhibit together.  I gave a demonstration at the show (a first for me!).  And then I won Gold and Best In Class!! Thrilled! This was based on the 2007 Galway Arts Festival Poster by Eadain (who gave me permission to recreate it).  It was great to bring a little bit of Galway to the show.  Hope you like...

"Bread" Chocolate Cake

I was the lucky girl that got this cake as a present from Av and Brian, I was stunned at the amazing level of detail in this cake, literally jaw dropping at how realistic it was, so much so that little Otis was picking off the pumpkin seeds!! You have such an awesome talent – Thank you!
