Good morning and thank you for all your lovely comments on my little AC/DC Fan.

I still can't show you the nappy cake, but this is a gift the customer asked me to make for her 6 month old little grand daughter that she was going to see over in New Zealand.    I thought this would be ideal as she would just be starting on solid food. Plus again it was a light weight basket.

This photo shows what went to the basket:-

I wrapped a fleece blanket round the basket, placed a muslin over the lid, tied it with three widths of ribbon, put a teddy on the top. I placed the basket on to a 12in x 1/2 in square cake board.  I can't show you it all done up in the cling as it didn't photograph very well.  I tied the cling up with the matching thin pink ribbon.

Granny was very pleased with her basket and the contents.  I am always glad that I have made the right choice.   That's all for today.   Off to St.Andrews this morning to take Anna to Space School armed with what I would call junk, but they are going to be making a rocket that will be launched tomorrow.  That should be fun to watch, oh the joys of being a Nanny.

  6. Hi Hazel.
    My goodness, your baskets are well travelled but not surprised as they are so lovely.
    Last time I went to St Andrews was July 1984. I can be that specific as my Dad and his friends got tickets to the Open so me and my Mum went round the shops, then had a picnic on a grass mound behind the R & A clubhouse. Happy days. x

  7. Good Morning Hazel, yet another marvellous creation, love how put it all together. Your ideas are fabulous. Enjoy your day at St Andrews, Kate x

  8. Hi Hazel what a fantastic idea and a lovely gift to give and receive.Enjoy your day out
