  • 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 

  • A Pirates Life

    I’ve made pirate cakes before, and pirate cupcakes too, but this order for a little boy’s birthday party gave me an excuse to do a variation on theme which has proven popular for baby shows, being  “face” cupcakes.  Instead of a baby face this time though, it was a pirate face, complete with bandana.

  • Out of Africa

    A cake to take “pride” in!

  • Burgundy & Ivory Roses

    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 

  • “Merry” Matrimony!

    A wedding cake with a definite sense of humour!  The slightly “worse for wear” bride and groom toppers were supplied by the customer, but had to be kept secret until the day.  They were made to order with accurate dress details and as per tradition the groom, who came to collect the cake, hadn’t seen
