Electrifying!

A short notice order, this one!  A cake for a 21 year old electrician who supports Manchester United.  Given the short time available, I had to keep the design fairly simple, and unfortunately not enough time to order in some red sugarpaste (very difficult to make useable true red sugarpaste), so I know the colour 

Sparkles

A two tier cake with zebra print, and plenty of bling!  he topper was hand made by me too – I used to love creating things with beads so grabbed the chance to make it myself rather than order one – the 21 was bought in, and the diamante style ribbon was fab.

May the Lego be with you, Luke!

Lego Star Wars is the theme here and this was a lot of fun to work with!  The base cake was airbrushed and I added a “star field” with an airbrush technique that I learnt on the course last year – all with a metallic effect to give it a bit of sparkle too.  The 

Golden Wedding

This was an order from a daughter of a friend.  She had put a lot of time and effort into researching ideas for her 10th birthday cake, and presented me with a large booklet of thngs that she liked.  With some consultation with her parents too, I cam up with a mixture of her ideas

Another order that was picked up whilst on the market stall – this is for a guy who is very keen on Disney’s Kingdom Hearts computer came.  I had to confess to having to google, and watch a few you tube clips as research for this as I’d never heard of Kingdom Hearts.  This is 

Bearded Dragon

Believe it nor not this is a cake for a little girl!  An order that I received as a result of working one of the early December Christmas markets, which was rewarding for me.  She had been wanting a bearded dragon and as I understand it her birthday present was to be the cage, etc.,
