fairy cakes

pink cakes

After running around town today like a crazy lady I finally managed to find all the bits and pieces for my fairy cakes, we’re having a bake sale tomorrow at uni to raise funds for our degree show at the P3.

I was so inspired by yesterdays cake sale at the Amersham Arms I was like proper enthused making loads of different ones. After some trial and error I have decided just to use normal icing (erm it’s a really garish red instead of a pastely pink.) Here are some of the things that went wrong:

-I left them for a bit too long so they’re as hard as rocks. I could knock someone out with them.

-I messed up the first time when I was heating the chocolate in the pan, i was going to make some delicious chocolate buttercream and I was like “Yeah that’ll be fine it’s pretty easy…” and well it wasn’t good. NOO! I  should have put it in a bowl or summat instead… then I wasted even more cos the chocolate was a solid lump in the bowl so that didn’t turn out right.

So I’m a rubbish cook probably because it’s so time consuming and i’m well bloody impatient.


I’ve been busy doing stuff for other people and not had the proper time to focus on my major project…ooops, it’s gona be long nights with coffee and Red Bull! I’ve really been enjoying my placement with Gia london helping them to design new pages for their website and it’s going well 🙂 plus using lush fabrics for the work too which has been fun.

We went to the Kinetica Art Fair last Saturday at P3 (Baker st) and there were some amazing stuff with art, sound and light fused together. There where some really beautifal pieces, the bird/arms work (see above) was creepy! It kept on moving very slowly in a jaunty way (i shudder…)Well worth checking out the website anyways.

We will also be having our degree show there in the Summer-ish so watch this space.xx

Gumtree ad

I have posted some ads on Gumtree looking for work. i need a real job. (I’ve had some deeeep conversations about what I’m going to do after uni…) Something like:

a. Live in London, well somewhere cheap since we’ll be paying te dreaded council tax, squat maybe….

b. I was thinking about going to Hong Kong for a while to do a teaching course, the plan was to stay there for a year and find work out there. only my mate told me the creative indutries aren’t that good. So that’s that. Living in Hong Kong would be pretty fun.

C. going back home although Doncaster is pretty scummy. Even if i go back and work for a year i hate it 🙁

Will keep my options open, being an illustrator takes a long time to establish unless if you’re super duper talented knowing the right ppl tis the thing. i’m looking forward to finishing, there’s a point where studying gets to you. Anyway onwards with work (uni.) xx


Should I be saying this, I am pretty drunk right now after a day of drinking (celebrating my friend’s birthday.) My student uni bar is sooo rubbish but who cares when drinks are cheapish for london prices anyways (see I’m from Doncaster which is a ‘lovely’ town in South Yorkshire.) I’m a student so yea.

Not only am I happy, I’m VERY happy my interview is on blog, yes read iiiiit! And i’m starting a new project as well, work experience I mean.

Wow things are on a roll now.

God I’m rambling
