Rugby

Lisa was back for another cake this week. This time her husband was turning forty and she asked for a rugby themed cake to feed a crowd. This is a jam and buttercream filled Madeira cake, iced with a chocolate-muddy rugby player in South Africa colours and a number 40 on his back of course. Hope the party (and the cake) was a success Lisa.

Dachshund cake

Emily is 30. She works for a well known estate agency and has two gorgeous little dachshunds at home. Her family wanted a lemon layer cake for her birthday celebrations, so here it is. Hope you had a lovely day Emily.

Golf lover

Lisa asked for a quick cake for a little family celebration of Dad’s birthday. He loves his golf so hopefully this jam and buttercream filled vanilla sponge will hit the spot. Here’s to your golf ball never going in the water!!

Bingo

Digby’s family have been through the mill a bit over the past few weeks but they were determined to celebrate mum’s 90th birthday. This is a gluten free fruit cake for a Bingo enthusiast. Happy Birthday Pat. I hope you enjoyed your special day with your friends

Manchester United

Carol contacted me and asked for a small vanilla sponge for her Dad (known as Fluff)’s 80th birthday. He is a life long Manchester United supporter and has always yearned for a Bentley. A slightly unusual combination for a small cake, but here we go. Hope this went down OK Carol.

Gardener’s Cake

Margaret had a big birthday last weekend. She loves her garden, particularly relaxing on her sun lounger with a good book and a glass of wine. Her daughter explained that part of the family live in Australia and she asked if I could make a little sugar koala to sit in the flowerbed to represent them. Underneath all this is a big chocolate fudge cake, enough for all Margaret’s friends and family to share. Happy birthday Margaret.

Chocoholic cake

Rachel’s Dad loves his chocolate. In particular. After Eights, Maltesers, Matchmakers, Cadbury’s chocolate fingers and Terry’s white chocolate orange. Could we get them all on a cake? Of course we can! Here we are, completely over-the-top, chocolatey, chocolate extravaganza, delivered to a local hotel for a family celebration supper.

Pink Birthday Cake

Michael phoned me and asked for a small birthday cake for his mum. She didn’t want anything fancy, just a nice chocolate cake with happy birthday written in pink. When I delivered it, I discovered that the lovely lady in question was going to be 100 ! Apparently she didn’t want a fuss. I hope you had a lovely day and very many congratulations.

Anyone for Tennis?

Tracey’s friend Gill is a tennis player and has a gorgeous little Jack Russell, Scamp. It was her birthday and Tracey asked for a lemon layer cake featuring both things, I think Scamp has been a little rejuvenated in the process, but hey ho. Hope you had a good time girls.

Cosmetics cake

Tiffany asked me for a cosmetics-themed cake to celebrate her very glamourous sister-in-law’s birthday. She chose well! Just look, somehow Crystal’s clothes and nails match her sparkly surprise cake perfectly. Sounds like they had a lovely family weekend together and i hear that the vanilla, jam and buttercream layered sponge didn’t last long!
