Spectacular cake for Mum

Rachel contacted me from afar. Her mum lives locally and the extended family planned a celebratory Sunday lunch at a well known brasserie in Highcliffe.

She sent me a picture of something she liked and I think we managed to pretty well copy the original. This is a five layer sponge cake (pink and white stripes inside but you will have to take my word on that) sandwiched and covered in pink and white vanilla buttercream. It is topped with white chocolate ganache drip icing and then lots and lots of pink and white chocolates and sweets. The whole thing was finished off with a golden cake topper message.

I delivered the cake cake to the restaurant in time for the party. Rachel was kind enough to message me the next day “ I just wanted to say thank you for the amazing cake. It was perfect and my mum loved it!”

My pleasure Rachel. Glad it was a success.




Indulgent chocolate celebration

Wendy and Chris wanted a chocolate extravaganza for their family gathering in Dorset this weekend. They are celebrating 50 years of marriage so deserved something indulgent. These are dark chocolate Madeira cakes filled with black cherry jam, smothered in chocolate fudge and then covered in chocolate fondant. Add lots of gold stars and a bit of sparkle and here is a celebration cake to suit everyone. Happy Anniversary Wendy and Chris.


Rainbow Showstopper

This was an unusual Christening cake with rainbows inside and out. Multicolour vanilla sponge layers with buttercream filling covered in fondant and topped with a sugar rainbow and rainbow flowers and little butterflies.


Jess sent me the picture of the cut cake with this very kind message: “Wow what a beautiful cake!! It was amazing in looks and taste. Well our picnic was eventful in the rain but thankfully we had the cake and Prosecco to make it all better!”



Pink roses for 100th birthday

Sue and her sister have organised a party for Joan’s splendid milestone birthday. They chose a vanilla cake with jam and buttercream filling iced with deep pink sugar roses and purple violets. We piped the message nice and big so that Joan can see it and I think it has come out well. Hope the party is a success girls and very many congratulations Joan.
