Taking the positives from such a crazy week though, it was actually really special to spend so much quality time with my little monkey - we are often at home together when big sis is at Montessori, however there are always a thousand things that need to be done at home and being in hospital ensured that we had lots of time to read books, play games and watch movies together without any distractions. I was also so so proud of my little baby girl for how well she handled all of the poking and prodding that comes with a hospital visit.
Back from hospital, it was time to get into cake baking mode - I have never done a wedding cake before, so I was not really 100% sure of what would end up on the cake stand! Here is a picture of the final product... I was pretty happy overall! The picture is missing the cake topper (a really cool stylized 'M'), but you get the general idea. Being a winter wedding we went for a winter theme for the cake with the twigs and leaves. It also really worked well with the wedding dress which was made from stunning hand-made lace.
