One of Janine’s work colleagues is leaving to take up a new post. she is a keen bee keeper and i was asked to make a bee-inspired cake. Inside is a big layered lemon sponge with fresh lemon curd filling. On the top are sugar flowers and lots of jolly sugar bees, some of them air-borne, as well as a sprinkle of sparkle. Good luck in your new job Alison.
Cakes for organisations
Liz and Richard had an extended golden wedding celebration taking their family and friends away for a weekend in Dorset. They wanted a big cake to keep everyone going for the whole holiday and asked me to make it in the shape of their campervan. (I don’t think they stuffed everyone in it this time). Anyway, this is a huge chocolate cake iced as a rough representation of their vehicle. Vaguely recognisable I think and delicious I hope. Have fun everyone
Marilyn is retiring after many years of dedicated service. She is a really keen sea swimmer and her colleagues at the CAB wanted a cake to celebrate her new found freedom. Congratulations Marilyn. Hope you get to put your feet up sometimes
The New Forest branch Of the RSPB are celebrating their 21st anniversary this year. They asked if I could make this big madeira cake for their party and provided me with the exact design to create. I was very honoured to be asked and delighted to do so.
30 years of Lymington Town Tours
Vivien contacted me via Streetlife and asked if I could make a cake to celebrate 30 years of the splendid Lymington Town Tours. (If you haven’t been on one, they are a really great way to uncover local history). We made a large plain Madeira cake with a jam filling and decorated it with Lymington landmarks in the organisation’s colours of cream and green. 30 candles finished it off. I understand the party went well and those not there got a slice of cake parcelled up in front boxes from Waitrose!
