  • We Wish You A Merry (belated) Christmas

    So although I am rather late posting this blog, I would like to show you what I do to celebrate Christmas in a cake fashion when I’m not over-run with other orders! As I don’t personally like fruit cake, and had an abundance of ideas kicking around in my head for Christmas cake designs, I 

  • Roaringly Good Cakes

    A popular theme for younger children, dinosaur cakes are a bit of a repeat thing for me so I’ve grouped several cakes together in one post to save repeats! The first one was a two tier cake, with a bas relief effect for the dinosaur and boy.  The airbrush was well employed to create the 

  • Drip, Drip, Drip

    Chocolate drip cakes – a new fashion in chocolate cake, and certainly one I’d like to do more of – extra tall sponge cake, usually 6″ round,  covered in rich chocolate ganache (no sugarpaste), piled as high as you like with your favourite chocolate treats and an over-spill of chocolate dripping down the sides –

    A tale of four tiers, and three flavours!  Chocolate, vanilla and lemon sponge tiers for the main cake, plus chocolate and vanilla cupcakes and also more chocolate cake in the form of a separate cutting cake to cater for all the guests.  A lovely couple, who had a fantastic venue dressed up beautifully complete with

  • Hearts & Roses

    My first heart-shaped cake but with a popular theme of cascading roses.  Pink and navy blue to match the colour theme of the wedding.  Another beautiful venue and a fantastic day weather-wise for their outdoor wedding in a wonderful setting.  The finishing touch of a lily on top which had special meaning for the bride. 

  • Lace & Roses

    A more traditional look to this wedding cake, but with detail around the base of the tiers using an edible lace product.  To add a little extra detail on the sides of the cake I used a template with royal icing.  There were roses on each corner and a sparkly silver ribbon finished off the 

  • Black & White Floral & Lace

    Not exactly a catchy title for the blog entry, but it does pretty much sum up the cake.  The brief was something with flowers, for a lady’s mother on her 60th birthday, but 60 these days isn’t especially old and with that in mind a more modern colour scheme was suggested by the customer –
