Laura Ashley guest DIY post

Laura Ashley guest DIY

So after such a lovely introduction on the Laura Ashley blog as their Blogger Crush for September, I now get to share a DIY tutorial I worked on for their ‘Make & Do’ category as well. *Disclaimer my old friends spray paint is well and truly involved.

Learn how to make this show stopper cake stand as well as patterned paper flowers to create a pretty cake topper. Both are very easy to make and will add a bit of something extra to your party table. Take a look at the full tutorial here. Thanks Laura Ashley for having me.

And just to let you into the reality behind the polished illusion of styling I often create, that cake was only half iced for the camera angle and was promptly thrown in the bin afterwards as in my cooking haste it was still a little raw in the middle, yum. Sometimes I have to laugh at the notion of styling (even though I love it) so it’s only fair that you do too.
