Chocolate extravaganza

Pat asked me for a 40th birthday cake for her daughter. She planned to take it up north with her to the party. Her daughter refused to have her name or age on it, just wanting a combination of lemon and chocolate cakes decorated with chocolate shards. Of course it turned out to be one of the hottest weekends on record when it had to be iced and transported which didn’t make it easy. However, I believe it made it in one piece and was pretty much demolished at the party. Success.C2286F9E-2DEB-4D20-8E75-6E1E42280E73

90th birthday cake

Daphne had a very special birthday celebration tea party at a hotel in Brockenhurst but wanted plenty of cake left over for her neighbours and herself! So we chose two rich fruit cakes in the shape of her age, one to eat at the party and one for later. Her son had very firm ideas about the design and particularly wanted blue and yellow flowers, remembering specially the wisteria that grew around Daphne’s house.
