Soccer Football Cupcakes

A selection of the 48 football cupcakes and football topper for the cupcake display!
Each topper was hand-made and comprised of a sugarpaste dome which once set was then decorated with 6 'ikkle pentagons and 7.5 'ikkle hexagons.  THEY. TOOK. FOREVER! LOL!!

Fondant Fancy Wedding Cake

 with kind permission of the bride & groom

Giant Fondant Fancy Wedding Cake
I think this is my first 'novelty' wedding cake, but the soft colours (softer than the flash makes it look in this photo) and the (edible!) white cases around each cake still give it an elegance befitting a wedding! My warmest congratulations to Louise and Nino who were married today at Blake Hall, Essex.

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?!
