Wedding Cake 'Alice'

I love my latest cake. It has enough bling and sparkle to satisfy my inner Essex Girl, but remains elegant, tasteful and classy. Perfect for a winter wedding! I can't take credit for the original design, but despite trying several times, I've been unable to find the original cake maker to credit.

Wedding Cake 'Matlida'


So many different elements on this cake, but they work so well together... ruffles; gold lustre; hand-piped royal icing; cake lace; pearl lustre. This has to be one of my favourites!

Stack of Books Wedding Cake




Liz & Jess made history by having the first same-sex wedding at their synagogue and I was thrilled to be asked to make their wedding cake.  Liz is an English teacher (I know Jess is a teacher, too, but I'm not sure in which subject) and they had a beautifully romantic literary themed wedding in a stunning octaganol former library.
The cake flavours they chose were red velvet; lemon; and coffee.

Presents Bar Mitzvah Cake

Congratulations to Dan on the occasion of his Bar Mitzvah. The colour scheme of his party was royal blue and silver and he wanted a cake that looked like presents, in his colour scheme, with a big burst of stars coming out of the top tier!

MacMillan Coffee Morning Cookies

Bit late in posting this picture, but at the end of September, my friend Peta was the hostess with the mostess - and held a MacMillan Coffee Morning!  I'm sure that with the houseful of friends, a huge amount was raised for this really wonderful charity.  These were my contribution to the cake table!

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!
