They chose a pretty cake with a real vintage feel... which co-ordinated so well with the gorgeous flower-filled china used as table centre-pieces at Blake Hall, Essex.

Two cakes, one party



Brother and sister Zakariyya and Zahra had a joint 3rd / 1st birthday party.  Zakariyya had a number 3 cake, topped with a little toy of his favourite character and Zahra had a farmyard cake - as a petting zoo was actually the entertainment at the party!

What a difference a photo makes! Last year, I made this lovely 5 tier wedding cake decorated with over-piped edible cake lace and sugar roses, for a wedding at the lovely London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, but my rushed photo at home couldn't come anywhere close to this beautiful shot taken by Alexandre Pichon Photography.  My sincere thanks to Alexandre for kindly allowing me to use this photo.

Photo Shoot

Last month, I created two completely different wedding cakes for a photo shoot at the majestic Moor Park Golf Club.  I am beyond thrilled with the gorgeous photos.  

This first cake is a 5 tier white-on-white cake that was created to echo the exquisite detail on an Ersa Atelier wedding dress called 'Truth', by using edible Cake Lace and hand-piped royal icing.






The second cake, in traditional Asian wedding colours of red and gold, took elements of the exquisite Asian wedding dress, worn by Sabeehah.

Designer Shopping Bag Cake

Designer Shopping Bag Cake with Edible Perfume Bottles.
I received the lovliest email from the customer who ordered this for her daughter's 25th birthday:
"Hi Suzanne,

Omg, omg, omg what a fabulous cake!!!! Honestly it was amazing. I hated cutting it and it upset me so much!!

My daughter was so thankful and amazed at all the intricate details you had managed to include, I have no words to describe how beautiful it was.

I tried calling you earlier today but no answer. Could not believe my eyes as soon as I saw it, I thought I'd call you once Zahrah had seen it and as I said I tried calling you but there was no answer, her face was a picture and as you say that's the best part when you see people's jaw drop at the first sight of something so special!

Thank you so much from all of us for making Zahrah's 25th birthday that much special.

Take care and no doubt I will be back for another special day to mark another milestone!"
Well, it's emails like this that remind me just how much I love my job!

L Plate

L Plate Cake
Another year has passed...  and so again I was trying to think of what cake to make my elder son for his 17th birthday.  He wasn't having a party, so I made this very quick cake for him to share with friends.  He always likes me to try a new flavour for his birthday cake and I'm pleased to report this strawberry & champagne flavour cake was a HUGE hit.  
Happy birthday to my darling Matthew.  I am so very proud of you and love you more than I could ever express.
