Not D Man’s, although he’s turning 3 soon, nor is it Kiki’s first birthday, although that is looming also.
On the 23rd of March, 2012, I posted my first blog, after two of my dear friends cajoled me into starting a project one morning at the park.
I had been complaining of feeling like I was dying creatively, and in danger of disappearing into a waft of insignificance.
At their suggestion my initial thought was –
‘What on Earth do I have to say?’
– And wouldn’t you know it, it would appear I have a whole lot to say.
I’m no longer dying or in fear of disappearing, and I can’t believe how fast this first year has gone. I think we could fairly safely say I’ve embraced all things blog.
I’ve made new cyber friends, had amazing exchanges of thoughts and the support I’ve received upon the interwebs has been wonderful and now I feel like it’s time to give something back.
Birthdays are great for many reasons, but none more than CAKE.
I’ve decided that I’m going to make Keeping Up With The Holsbys a birthday cake…..but it will not be like any old cake ordinaire, oh no. It won’t.
Where’s the fun in that?
I recently posted really freaky-looking cakes and meatloaves shaped like babies (don’t google Meatloaf baby, you can never un-see that) on my Facebook page, and it made me decide I was ready for a cake challenge.
We know I’m a croissant-making, smarty-pants, over-achiever, so let’s try a challenge of a different kind –
An inappropriate, or fugly, cake challenge.
That’s right, folks, I’m going to try my hand at cake decorating for your viewing pleasure, and you’re going to decide what I make.
There is no suggestion to weird, too gross, or too inappropriate, and the one that I deem the most hilarious, I will attempt to make, eat and blog.
For a little inspiration I’ve found some truly awful, and strangely awesome, baked delights.
Drop your suggestion on my Facebook page or in the comments, and let’s get baking!
If I find it too hard to choose I may be forced to put it to a vote, cos we’ll all democratic and shit over here in Holsbyville…..
I’m hooking up with EssentiallyJess and the ibots today…..cos it’s Tuesday and that’s how we roll.
