EDF Mascot Cake by ginas-cakes EDF Mascot Cake by ginas-cakes
This was the quickest sculpted cake I've ever done taking just 4 hours :phew:
It was made as a surprise for my son as a good luck cake for going to Uni. I made and hid it while he was out with one of his friends so he didn't suspect anything:shh:
Giving it to him was a bit more challenging as he was out and about saying goodbye to friends, so we gave it to him yesterday morning.

We are all very proud of him, and are going to really miss him while he's away, but there is going to be one great Christmas get-together to look forward to :love:

He did, especially as he didn't have a clue I'd made it. I think he thought I was too busy so he was completely surprised :)

I missed my son when he went to uni but I was also extremely proud.  As you say, there is Christmas to look forward to and you will all be together :)

The cake is amazing as always, though I must admit I hate that EDF advert!

Thankyou...and yes :nod:....I get annoyed with the advert, but my son found it cute.

 

...I'm lucky in the respect that he is only a 40 minute drive away, but it feels so weird that he's not here. I have had

long enough to get used to the idea, but never thought I'd feel so ......well lost and sad, but happy and proud. It's a lot

of emotions to deal with, but I know it's for all the right reasons :aww:

Awwww, not looking forward to the day the kids leave home :( Sasha starts 4 mornings a week at playschool next week, this month she has only been going twice to ease her into it (more like ease me into it as she is fine!) and that is bad enough, it is so quiet here.

I know Clare.......it seemed years away, but soon comes round quick.

I know Josh going to Uni is for the best. I've got 2 girls at home who have had to fight for factory jobs despite

them having quallifications, so he needs the best start he can get bless him, he's certainly worked for it :)

Jobs are hard to come by these days! My husband went back to Mcdonalds one month before I gave birth to Sasha as he got made redundant from the game shop which closed.  It was supposed to be temporary, he has been looking ever since for a new one but it is only now 3 and a half years on he finally has got a new job which he starts next month in a factory, he is so glad to be leaving Mcdonalds, he hates it.

I bet he's glad to be leaving. I've never worked there, but have worked in a Chinese take-away and Beefeaters when the kids were little. Both

hard work for little pay, and barely any breaks. Hope he enjoys it better there Clare :)

Very glad as before he worked at the game shop he was at Mcdonalds before that too for about 3-4 years! Yes the pay is terrible, he was a manager for a time but the stress and hassle he got from the bosses was not worth the very small pay rise so he demoted himself.
