Flynn - Rainbows and Bear Naming Day Cake

Anne Marie ordered this for her son's Naming Day ceremony.  The brief was rainbows, lots of them and building blocks and a star for Max.
The cake is an 8" chocolate biscuit and everything is edible and handmade.   

Lily - Unicorn Birthday Cake

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 and Paul - Castle Durrow

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.  

Sunbathin' - Birthday Cake

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.

Linda - 30th Birthday Cake

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!

Paula and John - Rollercoaster Wedding 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.

Daniel - Thomas the Tank Engine Birthday Cake

This is an 8" zesty lemon cake and was ordered to celebrate Daniel's third birthday.  Everything is edible and handmade. 

Zach - B.A. Birthday Cake

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.

Isobel - Bear and Bows Christening Cake

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 

Penny Rose - Minion Christening Cake

Carrie ordered this chocolate biscuit cake for her daughter's christening day. I think Minions are very pretty in pink.
