Joyce and Colin have been married sixty years and are having a party for family and friends to celebrate. I decorated this rich fruit cake in ice blue and white with a handful of sugar diamonds. Congratulations to you both.
Vivien contacted me via Streetlife and asked if I could make a cake to celebrate 30 years of the splendid Lymington Town Tours. (If you haven’t been on one, they are a really great way to uncover local history). We made a large plain Madeira cake with a jam filling and decorated it with Lymington landmarks in the organisation’s colours of cream and green. 30 candles finished it off. I understand the party went well and those not there got a slice of cake parcelled up in front boxes from Waitrose!
Irene had kept the floral topper from her original wedding cake. It was carefully packed in a box and had survived unscathed for 50 years. Irene planned a 50th anniversary party but wanted a second cake to share with her friends at church the following day so we settled on this two tier fruit cake. I made sugar flowers which I hope reflect those in the vintage topper and this was the result. Very many congratulations Irene.
Betty had baked her own fruit cake for her wedding anniversary. She asked me to marzipan and ice it for her. She had made bunting and used yellow gerberas to decorate the venue which we echoed in the icing. She then confessed she was having another 50 guests to a second party! So I made a second cake and iced them identically. Congratulations Betty.
Geoff and Magsie had a lot to celebrate this year. A couple of big birthdays as well as a significant wedding anniversary. They wanted a cake for their multiple event party that was pretty but that reflected their passion for golf. All the decorations are made in sugar.
