The day before my 18th Birthday I had a small group of friends over for a party. We watched DVDs and played on my Wii and generally had a good laugh lol. So before my birthday I just had to make some invites. I decide to do them using a card folding technique that is really in vogue at the moment called the joy fold. Here is a picture of one of the invites:
Hopefully you will be able to see a remarkable improvement in my photographs. This is due to my birthday present, which I was allowed to use before my birthday, a Nikon digital SLR camera.
Here are some close-ups to show you some of the detail the camera picks up on such as the texture of the cardstock and ribbon.
I then decided to do some baking and make myself a birthday cake. I made a chocolate sponge cake first and made it in a silicone mould I then waited for this to cool and turned it out and poured melt chocolate into the mould and placed the cake back in on top and left to cool here are the pictures:
I then also made some other goodies. I made peppermint creams as well as coconut ice.
