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. The 

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 

Roses Cupcake Tower

I love cupcake towers, I think they look so effective and when using the full height of the stand they make quite an impressive display. 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 

Christmas Bauble Cupcakes

Cupcakes decorated to look like Christmas Tree baubles, in a gift box, and another decorated with a theme of rock bands, for a couple who are fans of Metallica, Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chilli Peppers.  All packaged with tissue paper to make them look even more like expensive tree baubles.

Like Pigs in Mud

Just a bit of fun, and a play around with a theme that has being doing the rounds on Facebook and various websites for some time – I don’t like to be the same as everyone else, so I transferred the idea to cupcakes, these were chocolate and topped with a poured chocolate ganache before 

Cakepops & Pushpops

Not quite a cake, not quite a lolly, cakepops are a mixture of the two and a treat in their own right.  Moist cake, crumbed and mixed with buttercream and with a stick inserted before being coated in a chocolate covering.  Cakepops can be themed, flavoured, individually wrapped, displayed and enjoyed for any occasion, birthday, 

Black & White Wedding

There can be no greater honour for a cake maker than to be asked to make a cake for your own friends’ wedding.  In this case, even more of an honour as they could so easily have chosen someone much more local, being over 100 miles away. It took a while to come up with
