A long overdue blog post. At last, it seems Spring might have arrived. There is actually a little bit of warmth in the air, and although still windy, at least it's not that biting wind!
I have been busy as ever. I've had some super orders over the last few weeks. I loved doing this Batman cake and used my spray gun to get that amazing black shiny finish. The yellow against the black looks so striking, I was really pleased with the result, as was the customer. The cake was a 9" chocolate cake.
My roses cake continues to be popular and I have done it for an 85th Birthday and a Golden wedding anniversary in the last few weeks.
I have had 2 football cakes to do. One for a Chelsea fan and the other for a Bristol City fan. Both cakes were chocolate. Chocolate cake is very popular and seeing as I fill it with buttercream and cover it in ganache, it's no wonder really!
My chefs hat cake was designed by the customer and I was really exciting to make it. The cake was vanilla with jam and buttercream. The knife and spoon were hand cut and painted, totally edible. Full photo in the hobbies and sports gallery.
This dinky little cake is only about 2.5" square and it was an eggless sponge made for a party guest with an egg allergy. They would make a lovely wedding cake tower, or even favours.
And finally, I got to play with glitter for this make up cake. I've had lovely feedback from it, which is always nice to hear!
I have more exciting cakes ahead. Off the top of my head : shoes, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Star Wars, hippies, shabby chic, more football, a Beetle, Dora and roses will all be making an appearance soon! I'm sure to have forgotton some. The summer months are booking up and I have a fair few bookings for the Autumn too, I've even a cake booked for New Years Day. I can never stress enough - book early!
