It was held at our local village church, which is so beautiful and old, and luckily the sun shone down all day.

Hello all! This is just a short post before I show you my big Primark haul in the next few days 😉 I made this cake at my cake decorating class last week. I was learning how to do the frilled edge, which is actually quite hard! It’s a little bit old fashioned but also quite pretty.  I then also made some Easter shapes from icing with my new cutters, and a cute lilac bow. I also used my new letter…
