Monopoly Bar Mitzvah Cake & Cookies


It was my son's Bar Mitzvah party yesterday and his party had a Monopoly theme; all the tables were given name places and were colour coded accordingly. Instead of name place cards, I made name place cookies... 140 in total!! Here's just a very small selection... Vanilla butter cookies and royal icing decoration.  And, of course, the cake - a labour of love.
Daniel did so well and we are all so very, very proud of him.

Surfboard Bar Mitzvah Cake



Surfboard & Camper Van Cake
The theme of Josh's party was surfboards and camper vans and so I incorporated both into this colourful cake. Josh has a few food allergies (including egg and nuts) and so the bottom tier was chocolate biscuit cake (a bit like rocky rock!!) and the top tier was egg-free rich chocolate sponge!

Green & Yellow Stripe 70th Birthday Cake

It's always a bit nerve-wracking when you're at the party you've made a cake for, but I'm delighted the birthday girl and all the guests loved it.  This cake was for my dad's wife, whose favourite colours are green and yellow.

Snowman Cake

This is such a popular theme, despite having been around for a while!  The two characters on the cake board are mini figures provided by the customer, but the snowman is completely edible and hand-modelled.

Wedding Cake 'Maria'

My very warmest congratulations to Maria and Hayden who were married today at Orsett Hall Hotel. Maria chose a pearl/champagne highly lustred cake with white royal icing damask stencil decoration finished with edible pearls, which complemented the gold accents of her decoration perfectly. With the bottom tier a light vanilla sponge with jam & buttercream; the 2nd tier zesty lemon sponge with lemon curd buttercream; and the top two tiers chocolate sponge with chocolate buttercream, there is something for everyone!
    
 
 The bride hired a lovely set up for the table... I haven't seen this before, but it was really effective! On the actual table, was a 'separator' - and on top of that was glass or acrylic top the same size as the table, that the cake stand/cake sat upon. Between the table and the topper were silk flowers, pearls, etc.  I'm not sure my photographs do it justice, but it was really pretty and very unusual indeed!
 
As well as the wedding cake, I also made personalised cookie favours - a lovely way to combine table gifts and name place cards!
