The only instructions that I had for this cake was that it should be dairy free, lemon flavoured sponge and decorated in both pink and blue. It was for a father and daughter double birthday tea following a celebration family lunch. I filled the cake with a squishy lemon curd and then opted for a simple design to suit all ages.
Trish wanted a no nonsense birthday cake for her 70th birthday party. So we chose a big lemon layer cake iced in green to compliment the venue decorations for her barn dance celebrations.
Jean is celebrating her 80th birthday with a big party for family and friends. She told me that she has always owned cuckoo clocks and that her grand children always called her Nanny Cuckoo. Now her great grand child just calls her Cuckoo! So we did not have too much trouble settling on a design for her cake. This was a chocolate cake filled with black cherry jam and covered in Belgian chocolate fondant. Hope it was a success Jean.
Mike loves his sea side home and spends many hours on the beach at Milford and paddling his kayak. Pat wanted a surprise cake for his birthday that was a bit of fun. Here it is. Hope you had a good party..
Steve is an enthusiastic ice hockey fan and an avid follower of the Canadian Maple Leafs. So for his special birthday I used the royal icing flood work technique to trace the team emblem and then personalised it to fit the occasion. Hope you like it Steve.
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.
Elaine wanted a cake that would reflect Her granddaughter’s passions and nothing pink Hannah is a committed Christian, and when she does not have her nose in a book she is out . 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.
