The Superette gang were livin' it up Summer Fete style at the Viva Cake happening last Saturday and oh what fun we had... We hosted a whopping 7 hour "Badge-a-rama" session and had all the gals and guys strutting around the place wearing their very own pieces of badge art jewellery. Badge-a-rama - You draw it! We'll make it!
Eager floral frocked ladies and quiff toting boys were cajouled into gathering a heap of pens and templates, then drawing, dribbling and scribbling ensued. Finally the little sheets of magic were brought back to the stripy table and transformed into badges, necklaces and earrings! Hurrah! Picture above: snazzy customers designing away. Picture below: the Superette sisters *left to right* Lady Luck (no idea why I'm pointing at Gem?), Penni P, Super Sarah and Gem.
Happy punters also had their nails painted at the beauty bar, shopped at the Bric-a-Brac stalls, played poker and dominos, drank plenty of tea and scoffed all kinds of cake served up by the fabulous roller skating waitresses!
My boy Mr O showed up in the afternoon with our entry into the "bake off". Oh yes the Lady Luck lipstick lightning bolt logo shaped cake caused the girls to gasp! Our wonder cake had a pink top sponge and lemon bottom sponge with a jammy and buttercream centre. Mmmmmm. We fought off tough competition to claim 2nd prize and Sam wore his handmade rosette prize with lil anchors all evening.
We packed up the stand at 9pm and spent the rest of our night gossiping in the courtyard and having a knees up on the crazy light up dance floor. Phew! Can't wait to do it all again very soon. Hope you can join us!
