30th Wedding Anniversary

Elaine wanted a simple cake in very particular colours to celebrate her daughter and son-in-law’s 30th wedding anniversary. Inside was a vanilla and peach coloured marble cake, split with buttercream, to remind them of the peach coloured dresses their bridesmaids wore. The red writing and decorations allude to their first dance – Lady in Red. Congratulations.

Rugby

Lisa was back for another cake this week. This time her husband was turning forty and she asked for a rugby themed cake to feed a crowd. This is a jam and buttercream filled Madeira cake, iced with a chocolate-muddy rugby player in South Africa colours and a number 40 on his back of course. Hope the party (and the cake) was a success Lisa.

Dachshund cake

Emily is 30. She works for a well known estate agency and has two gorgeous little dachshunds at home. Her family wanted a lemon layer cake for her birthday celebrations, so here it is. Hope you had a lovely day Emily.

Golf lover

Lisa asked for a quick cake for a little family celebration of Dad’s birthday. He loves his golf so hopefully this jam and buttercream filled vanilla sponge will hit the spot. Here’s to your golf ball never going in the water!!

Bingo

Digby’s family have been through the mill a bit over the past few weeks but they were determined to celebrate mum’s 90th birthday. This is a gluten free fruit cake for a Bingo enthusiast. Happy Birthday Pat. I hope you enjoyed your special day with your friends

Manchester United

Carol contacted me and asked for a small vanilla sponge for her Dad (known as Fluff)’s 80th birthday. He is a life long Manchester United supporter and has always yearned for a Bentley. A slightly unusual combination for a small cake, but here we go. Hope this went down OK Carol.

Golden wedding

It has been Pearl and Stephen’s 50th wedding anniversary this weekend. Pearl was determined that she only wanted something very plain, but such has been the splendiferousness of their celebrations that they needed these two big rich fruit cakes plus two smaller extras, not to mention some similarly iced sponge cakes for the week after next. Congratulations to you both, I hope all the parties went to plan
