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.

Wedding Cake 'Celia'

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.

Wedding Cake 'Kathryn'


  
 What a difference a photo makes!!!!  The top photo was taken at home, against a black backdrop, in the same way I always take my photos.  However, the detail of the sparkle on the 2nd and 4th tiers just wasn't there at all.  I tried everything I could think of (albeit, my knowledge of photography is virtually non-existant!)  The middle photo is at the venue - it was actually rather dark in there and so I asked the manager if it was possible to turn on a light?  He switched on a spot light which highlighted the sparkle - just what I needed!  However, this photo isn't really in keeping with the others on my website.  And so, the final photo is the same shot, but with the background blacked out.  
Congratulations to Kathryn & Gavin!  I hope you had a wonderful wedding day and I wish you every happiness for the future.

Christening Cake


I've made this cake a few times now - it's traditional yet modern and suitable for christenings or communions.  However, this is the first time I've made this design of cupcake and it's such a pretty addition to the main cake.
