Variations on a Motoring Theme

I seem to have developed a theme in a few of the cakes I have made now – on the basis of seeing the Jaguar cake I managed to get two orders in the same week based on the same design.  A real coincidence as far as the timing goes, as one had been ordered back 

Meerkats – Simples!

A birthday cake for a fan of meerkats, but not the speaking variety known for their dislike of insurance websites!

Happy Birthday, Goth Girl……

I have to confess that this is my own birthday cake.  Using a theme that I have had in my head for some time now, and the ideal cake to show off “Goth Girl”, my first sugarpaste figure who I made earlier this year.  Also another chance to practice my sugarpaste roses. This would also make
