Adam & Dylan - Jungle theme first birthday cake.

One of my favourite cakes from last month. This is a 6" tall chocolate biscuit cake and was ordered for Adam and Dylan's first birthday. The brief was animals and colourful and I loved making it, especially that hippo. Everything is edible and handmade.

Amanda - Babyshower Cake

Amanda is due a baby quite soon and this is the cake she ordered for her baby shower party. The brief was 'stork, clouds, washing line' and I was happy to oblige. The cake is made up of an 8" zesty lemon tier and a 6" chocolate fudge tier. Seems like no time at all since we were setting up their wedding cake. Happy days indeed.

John Paul - Stormtrooper Birthday Cake

Marie, John Paul's nan, asked that I make this 8" chocolate fudge cake for her grandson's birthday. It's all he wanted and I was delighted to make it for both of them.

Orlagh - Frozen Birthday Cake

It's back!!!! Our first Frozen cake since the last movie lol. Made for Orlagh's 4th birthday this is an 8" vanilla cake with Elsa and Olaf swinging by to wish Orlagh a very happy, sparkly birthday.

Graeme - Flamingo Bon Voyage Cake

Have to say, I'm thrilled with how this came out. Had been worrying about it for weeks beforehand. Two friends of Graeme's are heading to the states and he ordered this cake for the Bon Voyage party. The cake is an 8" chocolate biscuit (the body) and the entire Fmingo (as my friends' little girls calls them) is 50cm tall. It's also entirely edible.

Ella - Teddybear Christening Cake

Ordered for Ella's Christening Day celebrations this is an 8" chocolate biscuit cake. The quote on the bottom is from Winnie the Pooh. Everything is handmade and edible.

Julie's Dad - Locks Hat Fan Birthday Cake

Julie's dad celebrated his birthday during the week and she asked that I make a cake based on his favourite hat, from Lock's of London.  Their hats are amazing by the way.

The cake is an 8" carved chocolate fudge cake with handmade model ... with miniature hatbox containing a builder's hardhat.  As, prior to retiring, he worked in Construction. 

Daniel - Winnie the Pooh Christening Cake

Edel ordered this 8" chocolate biscuit cake for her son's Christening Day recently. It's based on a version we made a few years ago and I loved getting to make it again. Everything is edible and hand made.

Sinéad (and Brendan) Harry Potter Birthday (Engagement) Cake

I have been like a kid for the past few days working on this cake. Brendan contacted me a few months ago to ask if I would come up with a cake that could be used as a birthday cake and a way to ask his girlfriend to marry him! I came up with the book and Brendan let me run with it. On the outside it's all birthday but when you open the cover ... well. 

She said yes!! 

Everything is edible and handmade and whooohoooo. This makes me so happy.

Eddie - Covered in bees cake

Hannah asked that I make this 8" vanilla cake for an end of tour gift for Eddie Izzard. The brief was 'covered in bees' and ... it really was. I'd made 200 the weekend before, that just about covered the top of the cake lol. 

All the bees are edible and I even managed to squeeze in one of my favourite gags of 'cake or death?' Apparently, he loved the cake, so yay!! You can listen to his beekeeper skit here:

p.s. I got to sit in the posh seats to see his show last night. Thank you Hannah x
