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.
Dick and Sue planned a celebration lunch for their family and friends to mark their big birthdays this month. They didn’t want a fussy cake and chose this chocolate sponge filled with vanilla cream, coated in Belgian chocolate fondant. We kept the decoration simple but added a couple of sugar shells as a nod to their love of walking along the cliffs by the seashore.
Elaine wanted a cake that would reflect Her granddaughter’s passions and nothing pink Hannah is a committed Christian, and when she does not have her nose in a book she is out . She is also a top class physics student. So we have made a cake with piles of books, a map and walking boots, a bible and some impenetrable physics formulae piped around the sides. Hope you like it Hannah, happy birthday.
Rachel and Alex are best of friends and celebrated their 18th birthday with a dinner party for their friends. They chose this two tier vanilla cake filled with jam and butter cream, shaped as an ice bucket complete with sugar champagne bottle. Hope your party went well . Happy birthday.
This cake was made for the 80th birthday of a lady who threw a big party for all her friends. She has spent much of her life raising money for hospices, she continues to play golf weekly and is a demon bridge player. All these activities were symbolised by the sugar decorations on the cake.
