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 

Smokin’

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 

Albert 100

Its not often a cake maker gets a request for a cake for a 100th birthday, and it is always an honour.  This is actually the second 100th birthday cake I’ve made, this time for a gentleman who is a keen supporter of Arsenal FC.  I don’t usually use printed toppers for my cakes, but 

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 

House Party

A huge cake this one, and heavy too.  Possibly a bit bigger and heavier than the customer anticipated – it is often difficult from a customer’s point of view to visualise cake sizes from just written measurements at the time of ordering. Any fans of Homer & Bart should recognise this house.  A definite deviation 

Biker

His Harley Davidson is his pride and joy. so what better way to celebrate this gentleman’s landmark 4oth birthday than a model of it on top of a cake. This is one of the most involved models I have made, and is entirely edible – it took over a week to make!  

M.I.C.K.E.Y.M.O.U.S.E.

A very colourful Disney cake, totally different from anything I’ve done before, and although I usually make a point that all my decorations are as edible as possible, the recipient of this cake also gets the plastic figures to play with, and I don’t have any copyright infringement issues either!  In all a very fun 

New Baby

Cupcakes for a very special baby shower.  This was for a lady with whom I work, and were ordered by another of my colleagues.  The booties and bottles cupcake design goes back a few years for me, to when I first started out, being ordered by the recipient of these latest ones for one of 

Caught in the Web

A very popular superhero, but the first time I have been asked to make him.  Working with the customer to find ideas that would appeal to her son, we starting with a selection of superheroes in one cake, established his actual favourite character and finally narrowed it down to this one in particular, I suggested this particular
