Gender Reveal Cake

Baby Shower / Gender Reveal Cake
I was so excited to be asked to do my first gender reveal cake... the mum-to-be is going to tell her friends and family the sex her her baby at her baby shower party today. Do you think the sponge inside is pink or blue? ;o)

And updated to say here's a picture of the sponge inside... 

Apologies if the texture of the sponge looks a little strange... I took some of the off-cuts, stacked with buttercream and then froze so that I could get a nice, clean cut to show you... It hadn't quite fully defrosted. ;o)

 

I received such a lovely email from the customer:

Hi Suzanne,

A big, big thanks to you.  The cake was so perfect I can't explain.  You made it exactly as I pictured - I was so impressed.  Compliments all round.  I passed your details over to many friends.
Many thanks.

WHAT A WEEK!!

I think this was officially my busiest week, ever!  Lots of late, late nights and early starts.  But I got there and each of my customers was thrilled with their cake.

The week started with an order for a cake - for my sister!  Her friend had an idea and asked if I could produce it in cake!  Everyone laughs when my sister gets a call, because of where she keeps her mobile phone - down her bra!!!  


I love my sister, but I have to say that she can only wish her boobies were still this pert!  ;o)

Next were two cakes for the same customer - her two daughters were having separate parties on the same day (her 8 year old at a soft play area and her 2 year old at home).



Both had cakes with their favourite characters.

And finally, like the customer above, this was for a customer who has had several cakes from me over the last few years or so...



The customer's wedding anniversary and her son's birthday are only a couple of days apart, so there is usually a double celebration.  The character cake was egg-free chocolate and the gold anniversary cake with red edible Cake Lace was egg-free vanilla.

And that was my week.  5 cakes, 7 tiers, 3 customers!

100s & 1000s 1st birthday cake



This pretty 1st birthday cake was simply covered in pink & white 100s & 100s (or, to give them their post name, non pareils) as well as pink sanding sugar.  The cookies were flooded with royal icing and then sprinkles added to the very edges... after all, sometimes less is more!

Cupcakes

Last month, a customer ordered her boyfriend's birthday cake and chose chocolate sponge with peanut butter buttercream filling.  Well, she said it was so delicious she ate rather a lot - and was still craving more.  So she ordered herself a dozen cupcakes "just because"...  and why not?!

Wedding Cake 'Varun'


This 5 tier ivory wedding cake, delivered to a central London hotel, was ordered by the groom's mother for a celebration which was actually taking place a week after the wedding... she said they have a celebration to welcome the bride and her family into their family. I love the sound of that - what a lovely tradition! The edible Cake Lace was actually over-piped which really gave it even more dimension and the hand-made ivory roses were highlighted with gold leaves, as well as gold filler flowers on top.  Because of the size of this cake (which you don't get a sense of in the photograph) it had to be finally assembled at the venue, hence the photo isn't as good as pictures I usually take...  however, the snap of the top tier which was transported on my lap whilst my husband drove, shows the gorgeous ivory roses and gold filler flowers, together with more of the over-piped Cake Lace.

Busy week! Cookies and cupakes and cakes....

So, firstly this week, I had an order for some pretty, girly cupcake cookies as party favours.  Taylor's 13th birthday was an afternoon at a London venue and her mum wanted personalised cookie favours to give to her guests.  The colours she asked for were pink and turquoise.  I know from Taylor's mum that they were a big hit!

Next, came a Batman cake.... this was a delicious chocolate sponge with peanut butter buttercream.  I had the loveliest email from the customer  "Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the cake. By far had to be the best birthday cake I have had! I cannot seem to keep myself away from it!  Will most defiantly be ordering with you again!"  It always thrills me when a customer takes the time to let me know how much they've enjoyed a cake.  I hope Riad had a wonderful birthday!

Also this week were 3 dozen cupcakes with star sprinkles which were donated to a children's party which was raising funds for Haven House Children's Hospice.  Over ¬£500 was raised at the event, which I know will be much appreciated.

And finally, 6 dozen cupcakes were delivered to central London for an Oscar's themed event.  All toppers completely edible and hand-made.
