Happy Memories Cake

This is a cake that I made to commemorate the long and happy life of a very special lady who passed away earlier this year. Her family gathered from far and wide to remember her together. She had a wealth of interests but especially golf, bridge, her garden, embroidery and jigsaws. She was well known for her intolerance of squirrels, so I sneaked one on as the picture on the puzzle. Every last bit edible of course.

Golden Wedding

Rob and Mo have been married 50 years this weekend. This is a vanilla cake layered with jam and buttercream and then iced like a layer of a traditional wedding cake. Gold piping and hand-made yellow sugar roses top it off. Hope your party goes well and congratulations to you both

Golden wedding

Happy Golden wedding anniversary to Pauline and Tony. Pauline carried a bouquet of yellow roses and Lily of the valley on her wedding day 50 years ago and her bridesmaids wore sea green dresses. As well as the sugar bouquet on top of thus rich fruit cake we have put tiny sea green flowers around the edge as an added reminder of the day.

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.

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

Golden Wedding Cake

Kate’s parents celebrated their golden wedding last month. She particularly wanted a simple elegant cake that featured the lily of the valley and stephanotis flowers that her mother carried 50 years ago. So I have made the sugar bouquet and tiny white flowers around the sides to echo the broderie anglais of the bridesmaid’s dresses. I added a sugar bow and a sprinkle of shimmer powder to finish it off. Congratulations Gill and Stuart.

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.

Golden wedding anniversary

Anne and Jack are travelling to the Lake District to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with their family. Anne carried a bouquet of yellow roses on her wedding day (as did I actually) so this fresh lemon curd filled lemon cake has a sugar version of the same. Congratulations both of you, have a wonderful time with your family
