Toy Show Treats

The Late Late Show is having a competition to win the LAST two tickets for the toy show (happening in two weeks time). We were asked to make a couple of nice things for Ryan. Bernie made this fabulous gingerbread house So fabulous in fact she's going to make a few more (one for me I hope). Honestly, the smell of ginger was delightful. I got to make the mini Ryan, decorate cupcakes and try my hand at biscuits. Great fun all around. 

You can find out more about the comp here: Today The Late Late Toy Show is putting two of the most desirable tickets in Ireland on the table with a competition to find the country’s most festive baked treat.

Nintendo Switch - Diablo III launch

I love working with Demonware as you never know what you'll be asked to make next. Diablo III came out yesterday and we made this for the team in Demonware to celebrate with. The cake is a scaled up version of my switch ( 14 x 6 x 2 ) zesty lemon cake and it went down a treat.

Harvey Norman - 15th Birthday Cake

The guys in Harvey Norman are celebrating 15 years in Ireland and ordered this whimsical extravaganza to mark the occasion at their Gala Ball tonight. It stands over a metre tall and is made up of a 12" zesty lemon tier and ... 3 x dummy cakes ( you cam have too much cake you know lol ). I thoroughly enjoyed making this, so much colour and fun.

Emily & Ian - Wedding Cake

I didn't make this delicious cake I simply covered and handpainted it. The cake was made by Tilly's Cafe in Clontart. It was a 12" vanilla and raspberry and, as they sell the cake in the cafe, I bought two slices to have when I got home from delivering it. Oh my goodness but it was delicious. Fluffy and light and filled with raspberries. You should check them out if you fancy a nice slice to have with coffee.

Adam - Wild Kratts Birthday Cake

I can't believe Adam is six!! This year it's all about the Wild Kratts. The cake is an 8" chocolate fudge and everything is edible. p.s. they had Kinsealy Pet Store host the part for them and I know that is an awesome party because we've had them too.

Rachel - 40th Birthday Unicorn cake

Terry ordered this 8" chocolate fudge cake for his sister's birthday celebrations in Dublin last weekend. Everything is edible except the cloud balloon ... next time it will be edible though as Terry mentioned marshmallows!!!

Fergus - 70th birthday cake.

I love the story behind this cake. When Fergus was a child his brother won a donkey (as you do) so the two of them set off in a row boat to collect it. From Donabate!! They brought it back home, sat between them in the boat. Pure Boys book of adventures stuff. Now Fergus is living a slightly more sedate life. He loves hanging out with his family and the occasional giant cookie.

Nathan - Hulk Birthday Cake

This year Nathan asked for a Hulk birthday cake and I was delighted. I love the Hulk. This cake is an 8" chocolate fudge and everything is edible and handmade.

Karen - Til death do us part

A fellow caker asked me to make this cake on her behalf for an epic bride and groom. Everything except the skulls is edible and the tiers are made up of chocolate biscuit cake, victoria sponge and a gluten-free red velvet. I love it.
