Stuart has just finished making a magnificent doll’s house for his grand daughters and now Mandy, not to be outdone, is starting on a tree stump fairy house. It is her birthday and so what better than a gooey, chocolate-covered cake fairy house of her own. Everything is edible (apart from the cake board). Happy birthday Mandy.
Football crazy Dylan was visiting his grandparents at the seaside for the day on his 11th birthday. Angie asked for a cake to cut after the family barbecue and a walk on the beach. Underneath the icing is a spherical vanilla sponge layered with jam and buttercream.
Rufus is 16 today and a snapshot of his bedroom seemed an apt way to celebrate. Here he is with his scooter and skateboard, the computer keyboard, the pizza, discarded clothes and all the empty bowls and dishes, oh, and Jumble who spends much of her time at the bottom of his bed. Somewhere underneath is a vanilla sponge cake. Happy birthday Rufus.
Octavia asked me to make a cake to celebrate Tobias’s first birthday. She chose this giant cupcake with vanilla sponge inside and cheeky jungle characters in the buttercream topping. She was hoping for some wonderful photos as a memento of this very special day. She got them, and even better, the cake was not smashed to bits so she actually got to eat it!
Fearn’s grandparents asked me to make a special cake for her third birthday. In common with most three year olds, Fearn is a big fan of Peppa, so what better than a vanilla sponge featuring her piggy heroine jumping in a chocolate muddy puddle. Lots of primary coloured flowers, ducks and balloons and it was huge fun to make. Fearn’s mum sent me a picture of her enjoying the cake to which she had added the candles. Glad it went down well everyone.
Raffy’s 11th birthday rather crept up on his mum so I had a somewhat last minute request for an emergency cake. This triple layered vanilla sponge is sandwiched with jam and buttercream and iced to reflect Raffy’s love of sailing and his beloved RS Tera dinghy. Add a 3D wavy sea, some gulls and a bit of sugar rope, Suitably nautical . Happy birthday Raffy.
Olivia and Grace are 13. They are identical twins and their mum asked me to make a special cake to mark their transition into teenagers. So here is a red velvet layer cake, sandwiched with cream cheese frosting and iced as the Yin Yang symbol. Two separate white and silver cakes in one. Happy Birthday girls.
Margot is six today. Her mum messaged me four days ago, somewhat last minute, and asked if I could make a cake for her. Luckily I had time so here we have this jolly cake featuring beloved family pets Stanley and Olive sitting in the garden. Margot was quite determined that she wanted a Red Velvet cake (even though she has never tasted one before) so that is what is underneath the icing, sandwiched together with delicious cream cheese frosting. I really hope it lives up to your expectations Margot. Happy Birthday.
There was little question about the theme for Ted’s 5th birthday cake. PJ Masks is his favourite TV programme so here we have a cake complete with Catboy, Owlette, Gekko and a sugar night time skyscape, ready for his big day. Underneath are 4 layers of yummy chocolate sponge, sandwiched with chocolate buttercream. Have a lovely day everyone.
Eleanor is 8 and although her birthday has fallen in lockdown, her parents wanted to surprise her with a special cake. Roblox ‘Adopt Me’ is the game of the moment so here we are. This is a four layer vanilla and jam filled sponge adorned with some favourite sugar ‘pets’. Happy Birthday Eleanor, have a lovely day.
