Fairy Castle

It seems that every cake maker at some point will be asked to make a fairy castle cake.  Personally they are not my favourite, but I found a design that is a little different from most that you see online, and the customer agreed that this was what they would like.  Some people would use 

Zebra Patterned Baby Shower

A cake for a baby shower, with pretty pink booties and a baby’s rattle.   The lady who ordered particularly liked a zebra striped pattern, but I worried that it would overpower the rest of the cake, so I styled a baby blanket with a zebra stripe design to lay over the white cake.   The 

A Bit Flakey

A simple but effective idea for a cake design – chocolate cake surrounded by Cadburys flakes, and a chocolate fondant bow – filled with either ganache or chocolate buttercream.  The recipient of this one must have been a real chocolate lover

Two Hoots Too

Owls are a popular theme, and this is the third owl cake I have made.  Two owls for two girls, twins nicknamed “Mally” and “Mooie”, although I don’t know their real names!  The owls are chocolate cake, and covered in chocolate flavored sugarpaste.  The branch is made of the same chocolate sugarpaste and the board 


A rather unusual cake requested for a regular customer’s 40th birthday.  This guy is a smoker and his girlfriend asked for ideas based on a packet of his preferred brand of cigarette.  This is what my odd imagination came up with!  The cigarette packet itself was completely airbrushed, including the lettering, proving a bit of

Vintage style cake with handbag and shoes for a fan of Cath Kidston.  A chance to use my very fiddly tiny shoe cutters and former, which proved to be a bit of a challenge at that size.. . . . Later, a chance to have a another go at the same design, and another play with the 

Golden 50

Not a golden wedding, but a 5oth birthday.  The brief was left quite open for me to try something new, which was to completely airbrush a metallic colour onto a cake.  The stipulation from the customer was the quilted effect on the bottom tier, gold,  and some flowers, and otherwise the design was up to 

Lilies & Roses Wedding

Another wedding cake for a friend, and it needed to be delivered to Ipswich area, luckily we were invited guests too!  Transported in two sections with extra flowers and finally assembled at the venue.  Also because of the numbers expected due to the fact it was to be served immediately after the church service rather than at
