Peter - 40th birthday cake

Peter picks up quite a few cakes throughout the year from us. This one was collected, on his behalf, for his 40th birthday. 
The cake is a double height zesty lemon, and is adorned with some of the things Peter loves. Snowboarding, shooting and Neil Diamond!!

Conghairdeachas Niamh (Congratulations Niamh )

This was ordered by Niamh's mam to celebrate her daughter passing her exams. A teacher who is, according to her pals, a princess at times. The cake is a 6" chocolate biscuit cake and everything is edible.

Plasterer - Cake Topper

Made for a fellow cake maker, always a nerve racking experience, I'd like to introduce her Dad. 
Cake topper that can be eaten, should the mood take you.

Joe and Bear - Communion Cake

This was made for my favourite little cousin. Joe made his First Communion on Saturday and it was a delight to make him a cake.
The cake itself is an 8" chocolate fudge.

Ordered by Martina, for her sister Michelle, this is a 10" and 7" Ginger, Date and Lemon cake topped with a 4" fruit cake tier.
Love the white cake lace on this as have a thing for all white cakes. 
That didn't stop me putting a peony on top to see how that flash of colour would work.
Martina supplied the topper.

Brooke - Butterfly Communion Cake

I love the simplicity of this cake. It is an 8" zesty lemon cake and was made to celebrate Brooke's Communion Day.

Shaun - Confirmation Cake

This is a 10" chocolate biscuit cake made to celebrate Shaun's confirmation day. Seems like no time at all since we made his communion cake.

Daniel - Confirmation Cake

This is an 8" chocolate biscuit cake made for Daniel's Confirmation Day. Another wee man who is growing up fast. We made his Communion cake ... when we first set up!

Mark and Emma - Comic Book Lego Wedding Cake

This was such an unusual cake to work on.  The cake, itself, consists of three tiers.  A 10" x 4" high chocolate fudge tier, an 8" x 6" high ginger, date and lemon cake and a 6" x 6" zesty lemon cake.  The buildings are all hand drawn, some by Emma  and a few b myself. 
Then, the fun stuff.  Emma arrived over on Friday morning with a box of Lego figures to go on the cake.  Trust me, there were even more to be added at the venue, this was a mere handful.
Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this one.

Avery - Butterfly Birthday Cake

Avery, or her mum, was one of our very first customers. We made her first birthday cake! A little toy plane.
This was made for her 5th birthday. The cake is a 6" chocolate fudge cake and the edible butterfly is a Common Irish Blue! Avery's favourite.
