Back of the cake

You know the way you normally try make each view of the cake perfect so that it looks good whichever angle it is viewed from?  Well, as the Fluid Design cake was for a photoshoot, would only be viewed from one angle and had such a complicated background I had no choice but to leave the back of the cake looking a right mess!

These are some snaps of the cake when I delivered it.  Look at all the dowels and messy royal icing blobs!  The shame...

Fluid Design Cake

This cake was commissioned by Fluid Designs - a design company based in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham.  It is their 15th birthday and they wanted to celebrate with a cake based on their company logo which they would photograph and use for the coming year's publicity.

Their logo looks like this:

Their cake looked like this:

Mutual appreciation

I was really touched by this lovely blog post that Giovanna's Cakes wrote about me today.

Sometimes I feel a little lost and have doubts about my work so it's lovely to hear such supportive words... 

Thank you Giovanna, I think you're fantastic too!

Style in the Second City Event

On Friday November 26th I will be participating in the Style in the Second City event at Edgbaston Priory Tennis Club.  The event has been organised by my lovely neighbour Beth of Beth Goodrham Personal Stylist fame (remember I blogged about her earlier this year?) and during the evening she will use clothes, sourced from the High Street and designer stores, to dress models of all ages and sizes to showcase the trends for the season.  She will talk the audience through the outfits and accessories, advise individuals on alternatives to suit their body shapes, answer questions and offer clothes and accessories to buy.

I will have a stand and be displaying my wares at the event, exciting eh?  I will also be providing some sweet treats for the guests to enjoy with their glass of fizz so definitely worth coming just for that I'd say!

There are still some tickets available so if you would like to attend email or call Beth on 07966 381361
