A very busy weekend!

March 14, 2016


Phew!  What a weekend of baking!  Four decorated celebration cakes

AND four dozen cupcakes!


First up was a Hot Wheels cake complete with a sugar paste loop-the-loop.  Plenty of flames licking up the side of the bright blue cake, a name banner in the style of the Hot Wheels logo and a hand painted chequered flag.

Next was a chocolate baby shower cake for a mum-to-be who doesn't know whether she's having a boy or a girl.  I love the combination of the lemon and pale grey set against white.  I created a quilted effect on the board and topped the cake with a handmade fondant baby elephant, pearlised balls and flowers.

The third cake was a total celebration of girliness!  A classic victoria sponge covered in pink fondant, hand painted bunting, flowers and butterflies.

Finally, an electric guitar cake for a 16th Birthday.  I drew a template on some greaseproof paper then cut out the separate component parts which I then used to cut out the icing pieces of the guitar. I added gold & silver details then placed it on top of the 9" chocolate cake complete with more flames.





 Oh, and then 48 cupcakes in retro-style butterfly buns!  Two dozen lemon & two dozen chocolate for a coporate client's open day.  I definitely needed a sit down after all that!!
