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.
Rachel and Alex are best of friends and celebrated their 18th birthday with a dinner party for their friends. They chose this two tier vanilla cake filled with jam and butter cream, shaped as an ice bucket complete with sugar champagne bottle. Hope your party went well . Happy birthday.
Freya sent me special instructions for her 6th birthday cake. It needed to be chocolate, with pink icing and a gymnast on the top. She drew me a lovely picture to help. My version is not quite the same, the anti-gravity posture of the gymnast was a bit too much of a challenge, but I really hope that this will do. Happy birthday Freya.
A particularly bonkers cake to celebrate the ‘big 0’ birthdays of 7 lovely ladies. Each cake was a different flavour under the pink icing. The birthday girls all recognised themselves and kept their sugar mini-me as a souvenir of a big mad party.
Just finished this cake requested by a lovely lady who wanted to treat her special friend for his 85th birthday.
The cake is a rich fruit cake with marzipan and white icing decorated to reflect his interests and hobbies. Pat was keen that the cake was not too garish so we stuck to muted colours to make a sugar artist’s palate and brushes as Roy is a talented oil painter. His career as an accountant is hinted at with the band of £ signs interspersed with little birds as a nod to his interest in ornithology. Being a fruit cake it will last for ages so he can enjoy it for weeks to come if there is any left after his party.
This cake was made for the 80th birthday of a lady who threw a big party for all her friends. She has spent much of her life raising money for hospices, she continues to play golf weekly and is a demon bridge player. All these activities were symbolised by the sugar decorations on the cake.
