Cheeky Monkey!

I realised this morning that I've made all of Harry's birthday cakes!  I'm afraid I don't know who to credit with the original design, as the customer sent me a pic of the cake she wanted.  Inside, to match the monkey theme, is banoffee cake - banana flavour sponge, spread with caramel and filled with caramel flavour buttercream!

18th Birthday Cake


Happy 18th birthday to Hayley... I remember Hayley when she was at primary school (her younger sister was in the same class as my elder son) and so I can't quite believe she's all growed up now!! Hayley's mum designed this cake for her - red curtains and drama masks for the shows that Hayley's been in, and featuring a microphone on the front, for her beautiful singing voice! Inside is delicious chocolate sponge, filled with chocolate buttercream and the outside is decorated with chocolate curls (I hear H is a bit of a chocolate fan!)

Wedding Cake 'Vicky'


 


Warmest congratulations to Vicky & John who were married today.
Their wedding cake was 4 tiers that included vanilla sponge with jam & buttercream; chocolate orange sponge with chocolate buttercream and orange curd filling; and rich fruit cake.  The cake was decorated with delicate lace and satin ribbon and bows, and topped with a hand-made sugar bride and groom topper.  John is in the Royal Navy, hence the topper was also in uniform! Vicky's stunning dress was recreated in sugar, as well as her bouquet of red roses.

Warmest congratulations to Celia & Paul who were married today
Celia came to me with a few cake designs that she liked and between us, we designed this elegant 5 tier cake with beautiful edible Cake Lace, midnight blue ribbon, pearls, surname initial monogram and topped with a hand-made sugar peony. Many thanks to Claire Bowman at Cake Lace for allowing me me to incorporate her idea on the use of the Cake Lace into this design.

Wedding Cake 'Jasmin'

 
Huuuuge 6 tier wedding cake.  The white ruffled tiers were 6" tall and by contrast, the gold tiers were only 3" tall.   I can't take credit for the design, as the customer brought me a photo of a cake that she'd fallen in love with, but I don't know the original designer.

Football Bar Mitzvah Cake


Bar Mitzvah Cake
Congratulations (or 'mazeltov') to Alex on the occasion of his Bar Mitzvah.  Alex is a fanatical Arsenal supporter and so there was only one style of cake that was going to do!  10" round + 6" ball cakes in caramel flavour sponge with buttercream.  Hand-rolled balls around the base and edible images on the sugarpaste scarf.
