Gemma is throwing a house party for her family and friends this weekend, two of whom are celebrating their birthdays. She chose a lemon layer cake decorated to reflect their interests. Hope this fitted the bill.
Val wanted a cake for a family celebration of her husband’s big birthday. Trevor splits his time between golfing and sailing so we decorated this lemon filled madeira cake with themes from both pass-times. Hope it fitted the bill.
Florence and Michael were celebrating 40 years of marriage with a weekend of celebrations with their friends. We went for a rich fruit cake decorated with ruby roses, an edible photo of their wedding day in 1978 and sugar ‘snapshots’ of their lives here on the South Coast and in Tenerife. Happy anniversary to you both.
George enjoys his vegetable gardening and is a great reader. His wife wanted a fairly simple cake which depicted these interests. Hope this fitted the bill
Rachel’s parents in law, Ian and Anne were renewing their wedding vows 50 years after they first made them. The service was to be followed by a party for all their friends and relations- all 75 of them. So, she asked for a big Madeira cake decorated with golden roses and three tiers seemed the best way to go about it. Congratulations Ian and Anne, Happy anniversary to you both.
I found out that Ian and Anne had the cake ‘piped in’ and they sent a picture of their grandson doing the honours.
Grace is going to be six and asked for a unicorn cake for her party. This has chocolate layer cake under the icing and glitter. Hope your friends like it Grace. Have fun.
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.
