Ellen - Horse riding Birthday Cake

I don't think I'm meant to have favourites but I do love this dinky 6" lemon cake. Made to celebrate horse mad Ellen's 8th birthday this weekend. Everything is edible and handmade.

Streets Ahead - Opening Day Cake

Joan asked to us to make this 10" vanilla cake to celebrate the opening of their new dance studios. We were sent a drawing and I love the colours. That graffiti style is right up my street too.

Clare - 18th Birthday cake

David ordered this two-tier vanilla cake for his daughter's 18th birthday. He knew exactly what he wanted and I love how it turned out. Everything is edible and handmade.

Ferdia - Minecraft Birthday cake

Made to celebrate Ferdia's birthday a few weeks back, this is a 6" cube covered in lots (and lots) of little squares. I love how they look but .. lots and lots of squares.

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.

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.
