Gothic Wedding

Another of the set of three dummies for a wedding fayre.  A few ideas which had been hanging about in my head for a while, particularly the bottom tier with the “victorian lamp-post” design on the bottom.  Some demonstration of piping work, some stencilling, more practice in making roses and the first use of a 


Another dummy wedding cake for a wedding fayre  – I had just worked on a couple of “alternative”, gothic, dark, style dummy cakes, so wanted something to contrast and show I can do a variety of styles.  I was going for a pastel, almost vintage look, something “sweet” with a cupcake on top, and its 

Black & Red & Roses

A dummy cake which I made for a wedding fayre – works well as a small wedding cake, or an extravagant birthday cake.  In all there are around 20 roses on this one, the cake sizes are 10″ shallow bottom tier and a tall 6″ top tier.  The pattern on the sides is a product 

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 

Golden Wedding

An order for a couple’s golden wedding anniversary, in the shape of an open book.  A pretty, straightforward design but still with the opportunity to be artistic.  This was hand-carved, and one side was traditional rich fruit cake with marzipan, and the other was vanilla sponge, all covered with sugarpaste as one cake.

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 


These were made specifically for Valentines day, but it occurred to me that they would be perfect as wedding favours too, made to match the happy couple’s colour scheme for the day.  Cakepops shaped like roses.  Cakepops are crumbed cake, mixed with buttercream to make a sort of truffle textured treat, popped onto sticks and 


Four tiers of rich, moist, chocolate Guinness cake, wrapped in layers of  chocolate flavoured fondant – chocolate fondant ribbon roses and a cascade of coloured sugarpaste flowers finish this cake off in style – the perfect cake to celebrate the wedding of a chocoholic!  Make an impression with something a little different from the norm….  

Cascading Flowers

A “waterfall” of pretty pastel moulded and hand coloured flowers in graduated shades of the same colour – to match the off-set four tier cake which is also graduated in colour top to bottom.  A little edible sparkling lustre powder completes the effect, and a matching ribbon around the base of each tier.  The flowers
