A share from Village Sweets ! Cool Airplane Cake…
Have been in a sewing mood lately…. Today I made a pretty fashionable collar using fine Bridal Satins and Laces. I think it’s pretty anyway, lol. Available in my Etsy shop. They called for rain today, which is why I sat myself down at my machine early. It is looking sunny/cloudy with no sight of rain…yet. I often wonder if those weathermen/women know what they are talking about? I havesent a link for some weather entertainment below. Hmmm what do I make next, my sewing machine is calling!
A little weather humor from Canada for your entertainment, please watch this video “Rick Mercer Report” 🙂
My sister and I recently embarked on starting a new venture called “Village Sweets”. I have been so busy with this project that my blog has been temporarily neglected, (not to mention my gardens 😦 Oooops!). Once things get ironed out, I can start getting back on track with my routine again, but new things always keep me busy and being busy means business… I hope.
We have been taking classes since the spring and we will soon finish them, knowledge is power right? So what is Village Sweets? It’s a cake and dessert business. We are focusing on weddings, parties and special events and of course our favorite, children’s parties. Creating unique cakes, cupcakes, cake pops, favors and flavors are what we specialize in. We have also been creating beautiful edible Royal Icing flowers to decorate those special desserts. What I love about these flowers is they can last forever if you store them properly in an air-tight container away from light and heat. They come in amazing styles, colors, and sizes. They make beautiful accents to your wedding favors and wedding cakes. Adding a pretty sugar flower to your dessert just makes it pop, makes it special. How is this any different from when you go out? You throw on a scarf? Jewelry? well my motto is, I want my desserts or cupcakes to walk the runway (or your dining room table) looking as divine as ever! You can visit our Etsy shop!
Finally finished all the wedding table number cards for my nieces wedding, which is in about 3 weeks. Weddings certainly keep you busy with all the planning. I don’t mind, I love to do crafty things and I love to help out. I had 15 of these cards to complete. I used a 15″ (inch) silver stand that I purchased from (on Amazon), they were the best price, paying only $2.99US each. Shipping was reasonable. I used the 15″ stand because I wanted her guests to actually see the table numbers and not have to search for it on the table. I also made the cards double sided with pictures and the table numbers, so on card number 1 for example, each side of the card has pictures with the table number so it can be viewed from both sides and all the guests get to see a picture. I used the groom and brides pictures (black and white photos) from young to date. I purchased glittery black cards and cut them to size. The glitter was annoying at times, because it falls off, but in the end I love the sparkly look of them, and when the light hits the glitter it looks amazing at night. I made the silver metallic frames to go around each picture. And I purchased pre-cut fancy frames for the number area, which I glued 2 together so I could have the numbers on each side. I used silver embossed sticker numbers (Martha Stewart). I lined the number frames with an edge of silver metallic marker (permanent) and then I made a smaller fine line inside the silver one with black marker (permanent), just to define it. I think they turned out great! They were pretty easy to make, if you have some patience and time. (*Note: Use a glue stick, as using regular liquid glue may result in the cardboard warping or bubbling).
