Margot and her family were on holiday somewhere warm recently and Margot has discovered the thrill of a jet ski! It is her 7th birthday today and her mum asked me to make a red velvet cake, layered with cream cheese frosting and topped with a model of Margot on a jet ski for her party. So here we are, all edible, although as ever it is possible to save the sugar model if she wants to. Hope you had a good day Margot.
Ted had his 6th birthday party today. They needed lots of cake to feed a hoard of school friends and as Ted is an avid Star Wars fan there was no discussion on the theme this year. Two tiers of chocolate fudge cake covered in midnight blue icing, stars and edible silver glitter, topped with sugar models of his favourite characters. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed making it Ted. Happy Birthday
Eleanor is 9 today and her mum has thrown caution to the wind for one day. She asked for this jam and vanilla sponge to be smothered in stripy buttercream and topped with Eleanor’s favourite sweets. Enjoy yourself Eleanor. Happy Birthday.
I made a first birthday cake for Tobias earlier this year and last weekend he was baptised. Mum asked me for this vanilla buttercream and jam filled madeira cake topped with a jaunty sugar train. Tobias can keep the train as a souvenir as long as no one has eaten it.
This is a jolly Harry Potter cake (complete with sugar wand) for Stuart’s grand daughter Wren. Underneath is squidgy chocolate fudge layer cake. I don’t think there was much left after the family party. Happy birthday Wren.
Sam is 4 today and has a party this afternoon. His dad has just picked up this Ankylosaurus cake. There is a squishy chocolate sponge underneath his spiky sugar armour and, as requested, he is sitting in a bed of molten lava. I hope this fits the bill Sam, have a lovely day.
Grace is 9 years old soon and has had her early birthday party this weekend. It was on the ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ theme and of course she wanted a ‘Toothless’ cake. This was a very chocolatey, sparkly, chocolate sponge cake and it seems to have gone down a storm with her friends. Happy birthday for next month Grace, I’m glad you had a lovely party.
Harry’s family were on holiday locally for his 3rd birthday this year. His mum emailed me to order a cake and told me that Harry is ‘obsessed with dinosaurs’. So here we have a chocolate cake, filled with chocolate buttercream and decorated with sugar dinosaurs and a rice krispie cake volcano and rocks. Hope the rain didn’t dampen your birthday Harry.
After a long succession of dinosaur themed cakes, Barney requested a dragon this year. This chocolate fudge cake topped with a sugar dragon was picked up by his Nana in time for his party. Happy birthday Barney.
Thomas was 10 this week. I made an ‘Adopt Me’ themed cake for his sister earlier this year and now it was his turn for a Roblox creations. This is a vanilla cake filled with jam and buttercream. Happy Birthday Thomas.
