Olly Murs Hat Cake

This was another cake commission from the lovely Kym, this time for her daughter Alice who was turning 15 and is a huge Olly Murs fan!  Kym had a photo of Alice meaning her idol so we used that as an edible polaroid in the brim of the hat.

Until next time...

Pink and Black Wedding Cake

A bold wedding cake for a lovely couple.  This was my first dairy-free fruit cake and, (given the 'scraps' that I ate I have to say), it was super moist and delicious! 

The bride and groom provided the ribbon and cake stand and I think it looks very striking...congratulations Kate and James!

See you again soon

Teacups Wedding Cake

The bride was from Stoke on Trent, the groom from Scotland hence the teacups and the kilt!

The wedding was in the Cotswolds so the cake needed to travel and was being transported by the bride's parents so myself and the construction department had many discussions and sleepless nights thinking about the safest way to support and move this kind of cake!

It did arrive safely though and the bride and groom were happy which is what it's all about:

'I've been desperate to say a huge thank you for the magnificent cake. I was so excited with it I totally loved it it was gorgeous and utterly perfect! '


Until next time!

Diamonds are forever...

I was contacted by Sophie from the Birmingham Assay Office who was looking for a cake to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of 'AnchorCert’ - a business that test and certificate diamonds and gemstones.  So what else could I do but use LOTS of edible diamonds and glitter for extra bling!

See you soon!

Special wedding cake topper

Here is the handmade couple that I made for the top of the Purple and Gold Wedding Cake.  Both the bride and groom use wheelchairs so the bride requested they were sat on wheelchairs in their wedding outfits with their tabby cat by their feet.

Email from Avril:
'Everyone commented on the figures on the top of the cake saying how well they had been done. We have them in a cake stand in pride of place in our kitchen. Anyway again many thanks. '

Purple and Gold Wedding Cake

This cake was for a lovely couple called Avril and Neil.  Each tier was a different flavour and decorated with a purple ribbon and bow (to match the wedding theme) and a gold flower. 

I also made a personalised topper for them...but you'll have to wait for another post to see that!

I just loved the colour and texture of the buttercream - I wanted to dive right into it!

Congratulations Sylvia!
