Fearn’s grandparents asked me to make a special cake for her third birthday. In common with most three year olds, Fearn is a big fan of Peppa, so what better than a vanilla sponge featuring her piggy heroine jumping in a chocolate muddy puddle. Lots of primary coloured flowers, ducks and balloons and it was huge fun to make. Fearn’s mum sent me a picture of her enjoying the cake to which she had added the candles. Glad it went down well everyone.
Raffy’s 11th birthday rather crept up on his mum so I had a somewhat last minute request for an emergency cake. This triple layered vanilla sponge is sandwiched with jam and buttercream and iced to reflect Raffy’s love of sailing and his beloved RS Tera dinghy. Add a 3D wavy sea, some gulls and a bit of sugar rope, Suitably nautical . Happy birthday Raffy.
Katie’s mum had a landmark birthday and Katie asked me for a cake that would reflect her mother’s love of gardening rather than her age (your secret is safe with me). We came up with this pretty flowerpot cake. Inside the flowerpot is a lemon curd filled sponge, toped with chocolate soil and decorated with sugar roses and a sugar trowel. Add a sugar plant label with the birthday message and there we have it. Really enjoyed making this one, hope your mum has a lovely day Katie.
