Wedding Cake 'Varun'


This 5 tier ivory wedding cake, delivered to a central London hotel, was ordered by the groom's mother for a celebration which was actually taking place a week after the wedding... she said they have a celebration to welcome the bride and her family into their family. I love the sound of that - what a lovely tradition! The edible Cake Lace was actually over-piped which really gave it even more dimension and the hand-made ivory roses were highlighted with gold leaves, as well as gold filler flowers on top.  Because of the size of this cake (which you don't get a sense of in the photograph) it had to be finally assembled at the venue, hence the photo isn't as good as pictures I usually take...  however, the snap of the top tier which was transported on my lap whilst my husband drove, shows the gorgeous ivory roses and gold filler flowers, together with more of the over-piped Cake Lace.

Busy week! Cookies and cupakes and cakes....

So, firstly this week, I had an order for some pretty, girly cupcake cookies as party favours.  Taylor's 13th birthday was an afternoon at a London venue and her mum wanted personalised cookie favours to give to her guests.  The colours she asked for were pink and turquoise.  I know from Taylor's mum that they were a big hit!

Next, came a Batman cake.... this was a delicious chocolate sponge with peanut butter buttercream.  I had the loveliest email from the customer  "Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the cake. By far had to be the best birthday cake I have had! I cannot seem to keep myself away from it!  Will most defiantly be ordering with you again!"  It always thrills me when a customer takes the time to let me know how much they've enjoyed a cake.  I hope Riad had a wonderful birthday!

Also this week were 3 dozen cupcakes with star sprinkles which were donated to a children's party which was raising funds for Haven House Children's Hospice.  Over ¬£500 was raised at the event, which I know will be much appreciated.

And finally, 6 dozen cupcakes were delivered to central London for an Oscar's themed event.  All toppers completely edible and hand-made.

Mary Poppins Themed Cake

This was ordered by the mum of a friend of mine. Anyone who knows Sharron, knows how she's a real Mary Poppins and the children she looks after adore her! Now, if she could just pop her brolly up, fly over here and tidy up my kitchen, spit spot, with a clap of her hands, that would be marvelous!!! Apart from Mary herself on the cake, there are the birds at St Pauls, kites to fly and sweeps' brooms popping out of chimneys! 9" chocolate sponge covered with marzipan and then covered with sugarpaste. Inscription hand-piped with royal icing. Sorry I don't know who to credit with the original design, but I was given a photo of a cake....
