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 

Margharita Time

This cake was an unusual one in that it was designed by the recipients – two young ladies, who would be sharing a birthday party.  The zebra pattern, and coloured stripes are nothing new as far as cake design in itself, but go well together on this cake – as well as the different coloured 

Sweet Enough

Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me……I went a just a little overboard with my own birthday cake this year – my own birthday is a great chance for me to try out some ideas and this one had been floating around in my head for some time (yes I worry too, sometimes!).  I 

Happy Honeymoon

This is the first time I’ve ever been asked to make a “honeymoon” cake!  The wedding was due to take place on one day, with a honeymoon going away party on another night – I didn’t make the wedding cake, but I was asked to make a special cake to wish the newlyweds well as
