Dave has been a dedicated Chelsea supporter all his life. He and his family were given a tour of Stamford Bridge as his 80th birthday present and then he had a party for 50 of his friends a few days later. Three tiers of madeira cake in lemon, chocolate and vanilla iced, of course, in blue and white. Many happy returns Dave.
Vivien contacted me via Streetlife and asked if I could make a cake to celebrate 30 years of the splendid Lymington Town Tours. (If you haven’t been on one, they are a really great way to uncover local history). We made a large plain Madeira cake with a jam filling and decorated it with Lymington landmarks in the organisation’s colours of cream and green. 30 candles finished it off. I understand the party went well and those not there got a slice of cake parcelled up in front boxes from Waitrose!
This cake catered for everyone. Wholewheat ginger cake on the bottom and gluten free chocolate on the top. Plenty of candles and sparklers to add a bit of pazazz.
