Fairy House Birthday Cake

A friend rang today in a panic, she needed a birthday cake for her niece (her sister had asked her to order and she forgot). As she was buying her niece a fairy door I thought a fairy house would be fun to do. 
It's a chocolate biscuit house, made in an odlums porridge tube, so about a foot high. Everything is edible. P.s. Someone please buy me a fairy door lol, they are cute as a button.

Tom - Thomas the Tank Engine Birthday Cake

This is a carved 8" vanilla cake. Made by the wonderful Bernie (I'm not to be trusted with carved cakes, get carried away). Everything is edible, including all those teeny, tiny coals.

William - Fireman Sam Birthday Cake

This is an 8" vanilla and raspberry cake, made to celebrate William's 3rd birthday. A different take on our previous Fireman Sam Cakes.

Love the pastel tones of this cake, that and the hidden hippo. 
The cake is made up of an 8" ginger, date and lemon cake and a 4" zest lemon tier. 
The elephants are designed to be kept.

Sequin Wedding Cake

Congratulations to Clare and Barry who are now, two days into married life. 

The cake is made up of a 10" and an 8" chocolate biscuit tier and a gluten free 6" vanilla cake. 
The design changed a couple of times over the planning process but I love what we came up with. The sequins are entirely edible, as are the ribbon roses and hidden Optimus Prime! A surprise for the groom.

Eile - Toy Dog Cake

Eile has THE biggest toy dog. It made sense that I make the biggest dog ever for the top of her cake. The cake itself is an 8" chocolate fudge with vanilla buttercream. Everything is edible but . . . . if you hate that dog, you'd be on a sugar high for the rest of your life as he is sugarpaste through and through.

Frozen Birthday Cake for Freya

This is an 8" Vanilla and Raspberry cake made for Freya's birthday. Do like this style as it reminds me of those dress up dolls girls of a, cough, certain age, would find on the back of their Mandy or Bunty comic.

Matthew - Ninja Turtle Birthday Cake

This is a carved 8" chocolate fudge cake made for Matthew's 6th birthday. Those turtles have been going for ages, we used to have them all when my eldest was a lot smaller than he is now (i.e. taller than his ma).

Hannah - Electric Picnic Birthday Cake

Made for Hannah's 21st birthday this is an 8" chocolate biscuit cake. Thoroughly enjoyed this and really, really wished I was going to the party as it sounded like a blast. My brief was, Hannah, the rabbit and the Picnic (one day I'm going to make it to that festival).

Laura - Make Up Artist Case Cake

That's quite a mouthful. This was ordered by Laura's mam to celebrate Laura's 21st birthday. The cake is an 8" x 6" high chocolate fudge cake. 

Apart from the lid, which is made of foamcore board and covered in sugar paste, everything is edible.

Received this email from Siobhan today, 23rd March, and it made my day.
