I loved making this cake. The brief was 'unicorn' but I didn't want to make a unicorn cake like any we'd made before so ... I went searching and found this wonderful cake by Lydia, her company details are here and you should check her out as her work is beautiful. I asked for permission to recreate it and she said yes so whooohooo.
The cake is an 8" chocolate biscuit cake and everything is edible.
Lauren ordered this cake to celebrate her marriage to Paul. The cake is a variation on one we had made previously and, I have to say, I love it as a two tier. The cake itself consists of a 10" Strawberry Swirl tier and an 8" Ginger, Date and Lemon tier. Both tiers are 5" high. We also made cupcakes for them, keeping with the rose gold theme, these were a variety of red velvet and raspberry and white chocolate.
What made this cake extra special was .... the bride and groom served it before the meal!! Myself and Bernie always suggest it but this, I'm pretty sure, is the first time anyone did it. We set it up in the room the bride and groom were going to greet their guests in. Cutting the cake was one of the first things they did as a married couple, which I think is very cool. Plus, having been a guest at many weddings, I bet it was lovely to have something to enjoy with champagne whilst the couple were having their photos taken.
Averil ordered this 8" vanilla and raspberry cake for her father in law's recent 70th birthday. He loves the sun! I decided to put him in an Irish back garden (he loves his place abroad) with his ipod and personal pool. I loved making this cake, really got a giggle.
This is an 8" chocolate biscuit cake and was ordered by Paudie, Linda's boyfriend, last week. She loves the odd glass of wine and is a huge fan of turning herself into a cartoon (if you know what I mean) so we took the cartoon image of her and made it into cake!
i loved making this cake for Paula and John. Paula sent me the idea and tonnes of photos of their dogs and cat and we were good to go. The cake is an 8" carved chocolate biscuit cake and everything is edible. Paula provided the "And so the adventure begins" topper.
Zach loves airplanes. In particular he loves British Airways and Wow Airlines. The former was easier to make (I do that sometimes). The cake is an 8" x 10" chocolate biscuit and the plane is made from modelling paste.
Lorna ordered this cake for her grand daughter's christening. It is made up of an 8" chocolate fudge tier, 6" strawberry swirl tier and a 4" tiramisu cake. Everything is hand made and edible. #This was not my design but one based on a design by the wonderful Emma Jayne Cake Design
I like feeding my family and friends. Love new recipes and love making cakes. Love making anything really, I'm creative. I share my home with my husband, three sons, a dog, a lizard and a tortoise. I've made this life for myself but frequently lament never getting to be 'just left alone'. Only need 5 minutes mind as for some sodding reason I start to miss them after that.
