Vodka bottle

My friend's daughter turned 18 this week and so my friend asked me to make this vodka bottle cake for her.  It's not vodka-flavour, though... it's champagne & strawberry!

Wishing gorgeous Ellie a very happy birthday.

 Warmest congratulations to Lindsay and Peter who celebrated their wedding yesterday.  They chose a cupcake tower with 60 vanilla cupcakes, filled with jam & buttercream and topped with a sugarapste disc and edible silver bow; and 60 lemon cupcakes topped with a lemon curd buttercream swirl and blue blossom.  Lindsay and Peter arrived at the venue just as we finished setting up and so I couldn't resist asking for a photograph (and, of course, checking they were happy for me to share online).

Chris is (obviously!) in the armed forces (Grenadier Guards, going by the uniform he asked me to have the groom model wear).  He ordered the wedding cake, and Charlotte had no idea of the design.  She did, however, email me a photo of her dress and her bouquet so I incorporate the design and colours.

Wedding Cake 'Abigail'



My very warmest congratulations to Abigail & Sahil. Abi chose this beautiful gold sequin cake. The original design by Zoe Clark uses gelatine sequins, but she Zoe told me that they aren't particularly palatable... so I decided to put my thinking cap on and came up with an alternative edible medium.  Abi also asked me to incorporate the Superman logo, as her fiancĂ© (now husband!!) has a Superman tattoo, and I think it's kind of their 'thing', so there's a little surprise at the back of the cake.

Wedding Cake 'Esha'



 My warmest congratulations to Esha & Matesh who celebrated their wedding this weekend. This is my largest wedding cake. 7 tiers - a mix of real cake and dummy tiers. The colour scheme for the reception was metalics - rose gold, gold, silver... and so Esha's cake reflected.  The huge bottom tier was covered in ruffles - and then each one had its edge painstakingl hand-painted painted in gold and rose gold! The rest of the cake was decorated using a mix of edible cake lace and hand-piped royal icing. The top two tiers were covered in edible rose-gold sequins.  I don't really like having my photo taken, but my husband wanted me in a shot to give an idea of the size... I'm 5'4" tall, so not exactly small!

3 Weddings in 6 days!!







The first of the 3 cakes was this 4 tier version of a 3 tier cake by Little Cherry Cake Co.  My thanks for her permission to allow me to reproduce her design.  My warmest congratulations to Tanveer and Sandeep.  White stripes on a white cake, with hand-made sugar roses.  Unfortunately, due to the lighting at the venue, I wasn't able to get a great photo.  





The second cake was this 5 tier wedding cake for Sana & Zahir with hand-made sugar roses and hydrangea, pretty lace and ribbon and finished with hand-piped royal icing detail.


And the final cake was this 6 tier cake that was delivered to The Waldorf Hilton in London.  It is always a pleasure to work with Becki of Floco Flower Company and I love the exquisite roses and hydrangea that we dressed the cake with.  Warmest congratulations to Esha & Matesh on their civil wedding ceremony.

White Chocolate Wedding Cake

Congratulations to Navdeep & Daryl who were married today at Langton House.
I made the wedding cake for Navdeep's sister, Anita,  5 years ago (Crikey!  That's frightening how quickly the time's gone!) and so I was honoured that they came back to me when it was Navdeep's wedding.  3 tiers of light vanilla sponge with jam & buttercream, covered with white chocolate ganache and finished with white chocolate cigarellos and fresh flowers to match the bride's bouquet.
