Determination is but a part of life

I have mixed Dementia with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, now for almost 10 years “BUT” I still like to practice my past profession with this Birthday cake that I have just made for my stepdaughters Birthday on Wednesday 3 September.


It’s a Rich Chocolate Sponge layered with Chocolate cream, then covered in white sugar paste with a pale pink table cloth like embossed cover.


The decoration which is all hand made using self made gum-paste and sugarpaste, with a Gum paste vase filled with handmade flowers and leaves


The cake and decorations are all edible...


The bread was just part of my weekly bake as I like to make my own bread...


My motto is to say:

Never give in,

Don’t say I can’t do that anymore,

Determination is but a part of life and

“Continuing my baking has become my mother of intent in fighting my Alzheimer’s”
