Sweet explosion

I have been making Margot’s birthday cake for a few years now. This year she has gone for an outrageous explosion of sweetshop sweets on top of a layered red velvet cake. Don’t eat it all at once Margot!

Cricket cake

Fred is an obsessive supporter of the Southern Braves Cricket team and for his 1oth birthday, his Gran ordered a sticky chocolate cake iced in the team colours. Hope you had a good day Fred

Beano Birthday

Amanda showed me some pictures of Beano inspired cupcakes and asked me for something similar to celebrate Oscar’s 9th birthday. So here we are, 12 chocolate cupcakes, covered in chocolate ganache and topped with Oscar’s name as well as sugar-paste depictions of Dennis the Menace and Gnasher. Hope they hit the mark.

Pink and purple butterflies

Alexandra spent her 10th birthday with her family and her Granny picked up this gluten-free, dairy-free sponge cake from me on the morning of the celebrations. Inside, the vanilla cake was layered with squidgy dairy-free chocolate filling. Outside, a cloud of purple sugar butterflies and lots of edible glitter.

Thunderbirds are go!

Oki loves Thunderbird 1 so much that he carries his toy one round with him all the time. So what better for his birthday cake? Jam and buttercream filled sponge inside this one. Hope you had a lovely party Oki.

Space Ship

For Henry’s 6th birthday party, Natalie chose this vanilla sponge layered with buttercream. On top is midnight blue fondant and a scene from outer space with sparkly stars and a full moon. Hope the party was not too boisterous – enjoy a well earned glass of wine afterwards.
