An unusual request to celebrate some awesome people. Ordered by Frances for the team to celebrate the completion of Carafate Value Steam Mapping project. This is a 10" chocolate biscuit cake and definitely too big a pill to swallow whole.
Ciara and Gavin tied the know in the beautiful surrounds of the Lyons Estate on Saturday. I met Ciara years ago and she is one of the most fabulous women. Gavin is beyond sound too and I loved making their cake. The brief was black, gold and NYC (as this is where Gavin proposed). This is what I came up with. The cake is made up of an 8" red velvet tier, 6" chocolate fudge tier and a 4" zesty lemon. Everything is edible and handmade and the topper came via Etsy.
Emily and Claire got married just before Christmas in the fabulous Westin Hotel. Their cake is made up of a 10" Baileys Liqueur tier, an 8" vanilla tier and a 6" zesty lemon. Skimmed in deliciously light vanilla buttercream and dressed with roses. A great way to end the year.
Nicolina ordered this 8" chocolate biscuit cake for her son's recent 21st birthday celebrations. He is a huge Chelsea fan and a phenomenal goalie by all account so the cake had to reflect that. The gloves were a hugely important aspect as they are based on the ones his Granddad (and biggest fan) Silvio gave him. Everything is edible and handmade.
Cathy ordered this 10" vanilla and raspberry cake for her friend's Bon Voyage party. They are off travelling the world and I am jealous. Everything is edible and handmade and Cathy is a great mate to have.
Carole asked that I make this carved chocolate biscuit cake for her husband's recent birthday celebrations. There were a couple of things I needed to include: their children (crawling all over him, as kids do whenever you try and relax), Pint of Guinness, iPad, and a reference to Second Captains, his favourite podcast. Everything is edible and handmade.
No pressure making this one, Eabha's cousin is a fantastic cake maker!. Aisling ordered this 8" chocolate biscuit cake for her daughter's Christening Day recently. The brief was simple with shades of pink. So, an elegant white, gold and pink ombre cake was made. Do love the simplicity of this.
I share my life with a husband, 3 sons, 2 dogs and, sad face, 1 rat.
I frequently want to be left alone but after about five minutes I go into a panic and need company again. A contrary hooer through and through.
