80th birthday cake to reflect a full life

Vina asked me to make a cake for George’s birthday. He loves fruit cake so that was an easy choice. George and his family travelled the world during his career in the Life Guards and then he spent a very happy time as secretary of Winter Hill Golf Club before retiring to Milford. We tried to represent all the landmarks of his life on the cake. Hope you like it Goerge, happy birthday.

Chocolate cake for a joint birthday celebration

IMG_2832Dick and Sue planned a celebration lunch for their family and friends to mark their big birthdays this month. They didn’t want a fussy cake and chose this chocolate sponge filled with vanilla cream, coated in Belgian chocolate fondant. We kept the decoration simple but added a couple of sugar shells as a nod to their love of walking along the cliffs by the seashore.

She is also a top class physics student. So we have made a cake with piles of books, a map and walking boots, a bible and some impenetrable physics formulae piped around the sides. Hope you like it Hannah, happy birthday.

Birthday cake for a model railway enthusiast

John is a model railway enthusiast extraordinaire! His passion has led to the entire upper floor of his house being converted into a railway, the new layout being revealed as part of his 70th birthday celebrations this weekend.

John and Jenny have 6 grandchildren all of whom wanted a slice of the action, so we made this with each of the chocolate cake goods-trucks bearing the name of one of the children.

 Happy birthday John, wishing you many joyful hours in the signal box.
