Feather Marking, Wedding Cakes and Golden-boots

2  Working on my Guest post for Choc Chip Uru, I was reminded of this time of year six years ago when I was having trial runs for making KJ’s chocolate wedding cake. I had enormous fun making several different recipes and taking them into school for the staff to test out for me. I also did a couple of different decorations so that the bride and groom could choose. The final version had beautiful real white roses on it.

3  Just for fun, I decided to make some tiny Golden-boots, based on the pattern I use for Sally-boots, with possible yarn bombing in mind. Then I thought, ‘Do I really want to lose these?  Er, no!’         I’ll have to devise something less time consuming for the knitted graffiti!
