But first of all I had my turn!
But thats not a professional one... here is a professional one!
I'm rocking my golden lassoo!
My job on these shoot days is as a hostess. I will get you tea or coffee or water while your hair and makeup is being done by the fabulous Lucy Topp, I'll get you a blanket if you are cold, or I will fan you if you are warm (yes, I stand there with a fan until you are comfortable). Whilst you are having your photo taken I assist Miss Sasha by making sure everthing is in place and you are looking your best. Then after the shoot I get you champagne and whatever goodies I have baked for you to eat.
This time around I made these:
Strawberries and Cream High Heel Shoe Cupcakes!!!
These were a labour of love, as are all the treats I take to Sherbet Birdie, and I actually started making them several days before the shoot. The white pieces that make up the vamp and the footbed of the shoe are fondant, which I rolled, cut in shapes and draped over RedBull cans to dry.
Whilst they were drying I made the heels from musk sticks, marshmallows and raspberry lollies.
Then, when the fondant was good and hard I decorated those pieces.
I drew freehand onto the footbeds with a food colouring texta to create a Sherbet Birdie monogram
The ribbon and plastic sparkly flowers were 'stuck' on with icing that dried hard
Then on Friday night I baked cupcakes in Miss Sasha's kitchen and when they had cooled I sat on the floor of her loungeroom to ice them.
All the Wonder Women loved them, and there are probably a lot of photos of them floating around the internet now, because I think everyone took a photo of the one I served them!
So thats it! Because I didn't sew anything on the weekend this is the only thing I have to blog about this week... but I'm looking forward to getting back into it this weekend and have about 10 projects I'd like to start. I'm trying to whittle it down to one so as not to overwhelm myself!
Wish me luck!
