Cupcake Decorating Workshop May 2012

I had a fantastic time on Saturday running a Cupcake Decorating Workshop.  I met lots of lovely ladies who were incredibly talented and who produced some fantastic cupcakes!

It was such fun I can't wait until the next one! x

Rocket Muffin Cake

My husband went to university with Alex (infact they still play in their university band together!) so when Alex asked me to make a cake for his wife Bex I wasn't going to say no!

Bex is setting up her own childrens clothing company called Rocket Muffin so we decided to use the logo as the basis of the cake design:

My interpretation of the logo...the painting was a little patchy but I love how it turned out.

Each of the other sides were adorned with copies of some of the clothing designs of the company...hanging on balloons!

I just love this little fella (in my head he's called Bob for some reason)

 Up, up and away! x

A Painting by Claire Barone

Having shown you the cake I made for my sister's birthday last time I felt I had to tell you about the present I gave her too....a painting by Claire Barone

I found Claire on Folksy, loved her stuff so contacted her about commissioning a painting of Julia with our dogs Molly and William (who are sadly no longer with us), Claire said yes, I emailed some photos and then she went to work and made this amazingly fantastic painting!

This shot is just before Julia started crying (with happiness I hope!)

The painting and the lady herself.

Thank you again Claire for making such a fantastic gift, it was the talk of the party! x

My Sister's 40th Birthday Cake

It was my sister Julia's 40th birthday recently (her birthdays are always a reminder that I will be turning that age in a year's time!) and so I made her a little cake to celebrate at her party.

I thought it would look cute to photograph the cake with a few pictures from our childhood - Julia's the one on the right in the main photo.... we did have long hairstyles but cut each others hair so we had to have it all trimmed short, we got in big trouble that day!

See you soon
