All Creatures Great and Small

I've been revisiting one of my favorite childhood series, "All Creatures Great and Small". It is a lovely, witty, lighthearted story about a vet in the English countryside. It is streaming on Netfiix and provides great background entertainment while I paint and work on wedding projects. Someday when I have enough free time I would love to re-read the books. My new wedding project is working on gumpaste flowers, what fun! It is a very hard medium to work with, it dries out very fast and cracks, but I'm excited to learn new things. My current cake inspiration is Cake Opera Co. They have very Marie Antoinette looking cakes. Their color palettes are very unique I am in awe of their use of black and gray and hand drawn elements.
