Millie - Bunny & Balloon Christening Cake

It was Millie's christening day yesterday and this is the cake her mam ordered for the celebration. The cake is a 10" zesty lemon and everything is handmade.

Allergan - Celebration Cake

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.

Stella - Parkrun Birthday Cake

Debbie ordered this 8" chocolate biscuit cake to celebrate her friend's recent big birthday. Stella loves Parkrun so ... a Parkrun cake it was.

Ciara & Gavin - New York Skyline wedding cake

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 & Claire - Semi Naked Wedding Cake

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.

Dylan - Chelsea 21st Birthday Cake

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.

Ciarán - Dublin GAA jersey Retirement Cake

Mo ordered this 10" chocolate biscuit cake for Ciarán's recent retirement from Hayes Solicitors. He is a huge fan and it was only fitting that he got his own jersey. Everything is edible and handmade.

Emma & Orna - Bon Voyage Cake

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.

Adam - Family Life Birthday Cake

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.

Eabha - Elegant Christneing Cake

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.
