Last autumn, I was kindly invited by Koby and Elizabeth of Archetype Studio, to take part in their photoshoot at the gorgeous Kellie Castle. Here are some of my favourite images. The shoot was published on Junebug wedding blog so click here to read and see more amazing images. So dreamy and romantic! xo

Faye Cahill is an amazingly talented cake designer from Australia. When I found out she was coming to Scotland to teach, I had to sign up. The class was held at Mrs Jones - Passion in the baking school. Mrs Jones, aka Shelia, is a lovely lady who opens her home and kitchen to teach, and also invites other cake artists to share their expertise.

I love learning new techniques and I picked up so many on Faye's class. We made the three tier coral and sea foam cake. Working on ganaching, covering, sharp edges, flowers, lace etc etc... loads! The class was split over two days and it passed in a flash. I was so happy all weekend! Faye is a great teacher. She explained things really well, hands on helpful, super knowledgeable, approachable, answered my million questions and so so lovely. Mrs Jones is there to help too and kept us topped up with plenty tea and yummy treats. I've left feeling really excited and inspired for what I can make next! Thanks Faye & Shelia! I'd definitely reccomend taking a class, I'm excited to go back soon.

It's on my bucket list to work with/learn from/take a class with some amazing cake people and I'm delighted that I could make this happen!

I wish I'd taken more progress pics but i was too busy having fun. Here are a couple that I did get...
