Handbag Bat Mitzvah Cake

Handbag Bat Mitzvah Cake
I love how this cake turned out! It's one of those where, yet again, I wish my photography skills were equal to my cake-making skills. 11" vanilla sponge filled with jam and buttercream; 8" chocolate sponge filled with chocolate buttercream. I usually marzipan my cakes, but the customer asked me not to, as one of her children is allergic to nuts. Therefore, a slightly thicker (but not by much) layer of sugarpaste was used, to help achieve a smooth finish. Little handbags were then cut out of modelling paste and decorated with various edible glitters, lustres and colours (keeping to the colour scheme of pink, white and silver), for a very pretty, but quite funky, Bat Mitzvah cake. Mazeltov to Chloe - and to all her family.

40th Birthday Cake with Butterfly

40th Birthday Cake
But not just ANY 40th birthday cake... My 40th birthday cake!
Some of my friends asked me 'surely you're not making your own cake?' But yes! I love my job that much that I couldn't wait to do this. At first, I thought it might be a bit young for a 40th... but then I thought 'what the heck?' It's my birthday and I'll do what I like. And I do like this one... so pretty and girly. (many thanks to Lorraine McKay for allowing me to use her side-design on my cake)
