Celebrating some rings with cake


I haven't really come back to the daily life after all holidays yet... I have a lot on my mind right now.. So I haven't post anything since last year (as you can see...) =) Hope you all will have a great 2014. I most say I hope I will get a great year too ;) I've had a good start so far. But not much time for minis...
But here is what I have been up to lately, except shopping, celebrating new years eve at my mum's and enjoying having my husband home all day long for several days in a row =) (Me, I'm always home since I'm some kind of housewife, the kind that cleans the house and makes minis, but hates to cook ;) )

Anyway I realized Konrad and Lisbeth didn't have wedding rings.. At least in Sweden it's common to have one golden ring on the left ring-finger if we are engaged, and the girl has two rings if she is married, but the guy just get his one =) (He can get two, but one is more common)
I have 2 rings myself, and of course I remember getting them very well ;) The first engagement ring was very exiting to get. We ordered it without anyone knowing. And took them with us on a pick-nick. That was one of the luckiest days of my life. It was a hot and beautiful summer day and we went for a swim in a lake. I remember how I tried swimming with my hand tightly holding on to the ring, with a closed fist, very hard to swim that way ;) But I was very afraid to lose the ring =)
And at the wedding I was very nervous. But it was a perfect day too =) And I'm glad I got to share it with so many people that I love.
Now I can remember all this happy moments just by looking at my rings, so off course my dollhouse dolls have to have a thing like that, to remember their wedding. I imagine it was beautiful, a wonderful summer day I think, just like mine ;)
I get stuck in all these writing as usual... ;) But here is a picture, I painted some rings on their fingers =)


And when I finally got that little thing done, I started baking a cake, in miniature of course, I'm not the baking kind of housewife either.... (too bad, because I love eating cakes and good food) =) 

The cake tin is made out of candle-holders, the same thing I used for the washing machine =) I got the idea when I was looking at Kikkas blog, this peticular post =)
I cut it in pieces and used a lot of glue.. This was not the easiest thing to glue.. It might have been easier to use paper, and paint it. But I thought this would look good, but it was a bit hard to attach the bottom...

The cake is made of air-drying clay (that I got from Sara in a swap last year) unfortunately it had already started to dry, but I could chop it up and use it. And on the top I added some deco glue that I got from Sushi flavour's webshop.
This is suppose to look like my mum's favourite cake =) A chocolate cake, "kladdkaka", easy to make, in real life =) and very tasty. 

Lisbet and Konrad thought this cake was perfect for celebrating the fact that they finally got their rings =)
(I'm amazed they manage to make a cake in such a unfinished kitchen ;) )

Take care
Hannah

    1. Thank you Lisa! It's amazing how many happy feelings a simple ring can bring, I get a bit happy just by looking at the dolls now too =)
      And I do love chocolate, but I don't think this cake will be as tasty as it looks, but that deco glue sure looks tasty.. ;)

    1. Thank you Kikka! I'm so glad you liked it, it's easier to see flaws on my own work, and see how perfect everyone else's are.. like your cake pans looked perfect, but mine are more of a mess ;)
