Wedding Cake

This is one of my latest creations in my Wedding Cake Portfolio.

It is a two tier madeira cake covered in blue blossoms. This is quite a contemporary and new style for wedding cakes. If you are looking for something different and simple, then perhaps this is could be the style for you?

My customer was absolutely over the moon with it. She wrote a fantastic testimonial.

My mum celebrated her 60th Birthday on 31st October. Last year's cake was an Enchanted Tree with a witch on the top! Knowing that a cake similar to that would be a bit below the belt, I embarked on making a 3D gnome. My mum has a staggering amount of these little fellows in her garden, and has now created a "Pixie Garden" which the grandchildren love. I am afraid I do not share this same passion!

As we had organised a party for her, I thought it best that she had two cakes, one, being the Gnome for her actually birthday and another for the party. She loves pink and flowers, so I created this delicate and feminine cake for all the party goers. We had a fantastic time and danced the night away (mainly to Cliff Richard songs urgh!).


A customer called and asked for a James Bond theme cake. This is for her daughter's 21st Birthday Party. The colour schemes are black, gold and diamonds. After a little thought, I came up with this idea. The high heeled shoes (all edible) on the cake are an added bonus, not only being elegant (like the Bond Girls), but also the birthday girl had asked for a pair of "Jimmy Choo" shoes, so it was perfect!


Earlier on in October I was asked to make 40 fairy cakes to celebrate 21 years of Rainbows. Each cake was iced and then decorated with a rainbow and a candle was added. I then individually wrapped each cake so that they could be taken home.

The Rainbows had a fantastic time at the party and this comment was passed on to me from the Rainbow leader

"I was most impressed with the Rainbow cake: we lit the candle the next day and sang Happy Birthday to Rainbows."
