Sheila organised a surprise party for her husband Don’s landmark birthday. All a bit cloak and dagger but we managed to keep this layered sponge featuring his beloved G14 dinghy a secret.
Kate came down to Milford this weekend for her friend Tam’s birthday. She contacted me and asked for a cake that not only celebrated the birthday but also Tam’s South African heritage. Hope you had a good weekend girls
The first Christmas cake of 2021. This traditional rich fruit cake is decorated with a festive partridge in a pear tree
Wendy’s mum has come to stay for the week of her birthday and Wendy needed a little cake for the celebration. There were just the two of them but we made this little 6″ layer cake special for a lovely lady who enjoys bridge and Scrabble as well as the beautiful roses in her garden.
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.
Vicky has a big birthday this weekend. She has ordered a couple of cakes from me for her family in the past, but today it is her turn. Her sister asked me to make a very special layered sponge cake featuring their matching tattoos. A very personal design for a family celebration. Happy birthday Vicky.
This time last year, Trish asked me to make a birthday cake for her daughter. Sadly, the order had to be cancelled thanks to the Covid restrictions, so we had another go this year. This is a vanilla sponge layered with jam and buttercream, sprinkled with pretty sugar autumn leaves and tied with a sugar bow.
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.
Wendy turned 70 this weekend and Mick and Danni asked me to make a surprise cake for her family party. Fruit cake is her favourite and it needed to be gluten free. Apparently Wendy has always wanted a pink birthday cake so here we are. A fitting celebration for a much loved wife, Mum and Adda. Cheers!
Yvonne contacted me to ask for a special cake to celebrate Julie’s 70th birthday. They have recently moved down to the coast and have straight away developed a love for beach huts. Julie has had a life in Girl Guiding, plays a mean game of golf and is especially fond of roses. Make the whole lot out of sugar, pile them on top of a rich fruit cake and you have a recipe for a family celebration,. Hope you all had fun.
