I seem to get a lot of orders for cakes with a rock band theme – and I do really enjoy doing these sort of cakes too – this one was for a Metallica fan, and the customer had sent me images of a style of cake that she wanted, which was the “rock salute” 

Hello Kitty 3D

So far I’d avoided having to make a 3D model of an existing character – always a challenge as it has to be just right, particularly when it is for children who can be very discerning in these matters!  I loved the stripes on this cake, which would usually be running towards the centre of 

Sew Far, Sew Good

Playing about with a germ of an idea I picked up at Cake International in London earlier in the year, I created this sewing/patchwork themed cake for my own birthday this year.  The colours are not normally what I would choose for myself, but I liked the fresh feel that they gave the cake.  I

I was pleased to be asked to make a cake for a gentleman that I worked with for about a year before his retirement – the order was placed secretly by his wife and everything was very “hush-hush”! The main cake was fruit cake, because it is his favourite, with cupcakes a mixture of chocolate, 

Hello Kitty

Hello Kitty themed cake for a little girl who was 5 today.  She chose the design from a picture she had seen, and I adapted it so as not to do a direct copy and make it more individual for her.  The bow is from the original, the flowers are mine, and the banner at the
