Wedding Cake 'Jasmin'

Huuuuge 6 tier wedding cake.  The white ruffled tiers were 6" tall and by contrast, the gold tiers were only 3" tall.   I can't take credit for the design, as the customer brought me a photo of a cake that she'd fallen in love with, but I don't know the original designer.

Football Bar Mitzvah Cake

Bar Mitzvah Cake
Congratulations (or 'mazeltov') to Alex on the occasion of his Bar Mitzvah.  Alex is a fanatical Arsenal supporter and so there was only one style of cake that was going to do!  10" round + 6" ball cakes in caramel flavour sponge with buttercream.  Hand-rolled balls around the base and edible images on the sugarpaste scarf.

Wedding Cake 'Kathryn'

 What a difference a photo makes!!!!  The top photo was taken at home, against a black backdrop, in the same way I always take my photos.  However, the detail of the sparkle on the 2nd and 4th tiers just wasn't there at all.  I tried everything I could think of (albeit, my knowledge of photography is virtually non-existant!)  The middle photo is at the venue - it was actually rather dark in there and so I asked the manager if it was possible to turn on a light?  He switched on a spot light which highlighted the sparkle - just what I needed!  However, this photo isn't really in keeping with the others on my website.  And so, the final photo is the same shot, but with the background blacked out.  
Congratulations to Kathryn & Gavin!  I hope you had a wonderful wedding day and I wish you every happiness for the future.

Christening Cake

I've made this cake a few times now - it's traditional yet modern and suitable for christenings or communions.  However, this is the first time I've made this design of cupcake and it's such a pretty addition to the main cake.
