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 

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 –

Roses Cupcake Tower

This order was actually for a joint birthday party, but would work just as effectively for a wedding. Each cupcake has two small roses, and a monogrammed plaque with either 

Giraffes Say “Cheese”

No more giraffe cakes I said……….but this is a giraffe cake with a difference.  The lady recipient of this order had visited a giraffe park on holiday, fed the giraffes and bought a photo frame from the gift shop which was a cuddly giraffe holding a photo.  Her husband told me how much she had
