Yes I know I've been MIA but I have had good reason, honestly.
August 25th is my son's birthday, he turned 16 and it was also GCSE exam results day!!
(he passed the lot - well done Ben!!!!)
So I have been busy baking, icing and card making!
And oh boy this year the darling boy asked me to make him a Vinylmation cake!
(For those not in the know Vinylmation are 3" Mickey Mouse figurines)
Here is a close-up of the cake alongside the original Vinylmation Ben asked me to copy with a request for proper eyes!

Additional: homemade American sponge cake, homemade Creme au Beurre, strawberry jam (not homemade), Royal and Fondant icing (cheated and bought it)
Oh boy I can hear Duff Goldman laughing as I type..........
Now for the cards, as it was a double celebration Ben got TWO cards, the first for his birthday:
