Domestic goddess

Lately, I've had plenty of free time to indulge my inner domestic goddess. I hand-sewed a table runner from an exquisite V&A fabric, and plan to make a table cloth and curtain ties with the rest of the fabric.

And I've been baking. Inspired by an incredibly talented and friendly wedding cake maker, Emma Drew of Cake Maison, and a pile of baking books on my shelf, I've attempted to make pretty-looking cakes and biscuits. The pink cakes are rose flavour and the brown and yellow cakes are chocolate, orange and geranium. My piping needs a lot of work, but I'm happy with my bows!
