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.
Di is a stalwart of the bowls club and her neighbour Julie wanted to surprise her with this iced vanilla sponge cake for her birthday.
Karen’s dad is 90 today. A life long cricket enthusiast, this cake should fit the bill. Inside is a triple layered gluten-free lemon sponge filled with home made lemon curd. Hope that the sun shone for your outdoor celebrations and congratulations everyone.
Karen was kind enough to write to me afterwards
Dad had a fantastic time and the cake was out of this world! Everyone loved it, probably the best gluten free cake we’ve had!
My dad loved the design of the cake and got really choked up when he saw it 🙂
Thank you for doing such a wonderful job Liz. I can honestly say I couldn’t thank you enough for the taste, the design everything.
It is Stuart’s big birthday today. No Prizes for guessing his musical hero! This sparkly Purple Rain inspired celebration cake contains a vanilla sponge cake layered with jam and buttercream. Happy birthday Stuart.
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!
Shaun asked me to make this cake for Sam’s birthday today. Inside is a sticky chocolate sponge, outside is fondant icing piped with his beloved Lotus logo. Happy birthday Sam.
Michael’s friend Lynne loves chocolate so this triple-layer, ganache filled, chocolate-fudge-covered chocolate sponge was the obvious choice. Tie it up with a sugar bow. Just the ticket.
Paul is a cycling fanatic and today is Paul’s special birthday. Clare asked me for a vanilla sponge cake featuring a sugar version of one of his many bicycles to celebrate. Hope the day goes well.
Kirsty’s mum is 60 today. Kirsty tells me that her mum is a fantastic needlewoman so this is a three layer vanilla sponge iced with some of the tools of her trade. Everything (except the board) is edible. Have a lovely day everyone.
