I have noticed my waist nipping in a bit - not massively but enough for one person telling me "you've lost weight" and Em said this evening my waist looks smaller than last week. If I can only shake this heel injury I would be firing on all cylinders. I don't tend to do much exercise on a Saturday and Sunday but this looks set to change as my husband purchased a punching bag and gloves which we've set up in the garage. The kids love it and its all good fun You can really work up a sweat thumping one of those things.
I've also just realised the kids will be off again at the end of next week for one whole week plus a bank holiday thrown in for good measure. So cue getting in as much good eating habits and exercise as possible.
As promised here is the step by step pictures of the Lego Batman Cake....
|I covered 2 x chocolate rounds the day before I made the Lego Batman figure|
|I bought this lovely glitter so it looked like the sky at night, added black cut out fondant for the buildings and yellow fondant for the windows|
|Getting an idea of shape and size - a ruler is very handy. I always carve out of defrosting madeira cake|
|Sorted out shape and head|
|Carved out his legs and I also put fondant on the upper thighs to give it a round shape and also on his head|
|Covered - am pretty pleased at this point. It would have been far easier to have just made him like this and lay him on his cape. For his arms I just modeled fondant and put tooth picks in to attach to the main body.|
See you very soon!
