My Big Brothers 40th

This is a Winchcombe Pottery Casserole Dish...

During most of his 20's, after completing a degree in ceramics, my big brother Ed could mainly be found covered in clay dust at a wheel in Winchcombe Pottery.  
In fact, while reading through the history of the pottery on their website for this blog I came across Ed's name and I swelled with pride!! :)
Ceramics is his passion so there really was no other option than to re-create some Winchcombe Pottery for his 40th Birthday cake.

It was a massively rushed job as the Alice in Wonderland Tea Party Cake was due for the same weekend, so in all honestly I literally threw Ed's cake together, airbrushed it and drove it to the surprise lunch at his favourite, The Snowshill Arms (in Snowshill!).

It was a basic vanilla and jam sponge, carved (in record time) to the shape of the aforementioned (love that word) casserole dish, covered in fondant and sprayed using my faithful airbrush, The Badger...

My casserole dish isn't quite as 'pert' as the original but Ed was impressed and as a little sister that was all my Christmas's at once! :)

Please excuse the bald board... as I said, it was a rush job!!

Here are a couple of snaps from the family gathering, featuring my big brother Ed, Dad and his Sally and a small person's arm, possibly Ed's youngest, darling (cheeky monkey) Maeve who swiped the knob off the top while no one was looking!!
