Well, we have been living in Germany for almost 4 weeks now!
I don't know where the time has gone!
I love it here! just got to get used to the language so I feel more confident
being out and about when someone starts talking to me lol!
but the locals all seem very friendly!
These little gems were made for my hubby's work colleagues
as I am using different ingredients so need to perfect the recipe.
Cupcakes are Zesty Lemon Sponge with Lemony Buttercream,
covered in a blanket of Pale Eucalyptus fondant and decorated with pastel pink blossoms.
These were the samples I made for Lou & Steve's Wedding consultation
a while ago now
(surprising how quickly time flies by!)
Such a lovely couple and an absolute pleasure to work with!
They weren't sure what they wanted but they did want it vintage looking
and pale/nude pink.
A beautiful mix of vintage cupcakes & shabby chic coconut topped cupcakes,
with some paper lace wrappers jotted here and there
with a 2 tier top cutting cake!
This top cake is chocolate with chocolate ganache
and decorated with a sweet pea type flower
to co-ordinate with the cupcakes!
These cookies were used as place settings/favours
designed to carry on the vintage theme!
Colours used were Nude Pink & Pale Ivory/cream.
You may well recognise that the design is quite similar to one I made last year! but with a few teaks here and there with the design and colours .......and a pretty little crystal clam with a pearl topper, it makes it that little more personal to the couple
I love these daisies, they are very delicate but so simply pretty! and with making some of my own sea shell moulds they are that little bit more special!
A close-up on the detail of the top cutting cake.
This photo was taken at the venue at the
Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth (on the seafront)
but because I couldn't set up the cakes til after 6.30 pm
the lighting wasn't the best,
but they still look pretty! such a shame I couldn't capture the
twinkling effect the sun gave on these!
I saw the bride & groom yesterday and they said with the dark evening background (being after 9pm)
and the pretty lighting over the cakes they looked beautiful! hope they can get some photos to me :o)
Thank you all for taking the time to look at these photos
and really hope you like them as much as I do! xxx

another reason for the black & white design.
The cupcake design with the single flowers
I have made before and they wanted these,
but because they were for a cupcake tower I wanted to make
half of them with a couple of flowers on, just to add a little more interest.
The top Cupcake cutting cake was hand carved to look like a large replica
of the smaller cupcakes.
The zebra striped case is made of fondant (sugarpaste)
and hand painted for the effect.
These were collected and taken all the way up to Newcastle.
