A mini, tall cake covered in dusky pink fondant and decorated with a white double flower. A great way to use up cake left overs, cut with a round cutter and spread a light layer of buttercream all over, and cover with fondant. It's a little bumpy but good enough to eat! :o)

Acoustic.......(Guitar Cake)

My first attempt at a guitar cake,
I really enjoyed making this and I was pretty pleased with how it turned out,
as was the lovely lady who ordered it.
It was a little fiddley and time consuming but I would do another in a heart beat!

Fantasy Flower on Jade

Thought I would try my new flower cutters out,
and have a go with some white flowers,
and I really like them.
I am loving this jade green, such a pretty colour!

Fairy tale Cookies

These Fairytale theme cupcakes were made for my son and his classmate
who were having a fairytale fancy dress day at school.
Simple shortbread cookies dressed in fondant
and finished off with either
a dusting of lustre or a sparkling sugar........
or both!

Little Gem

I love this Blingy little cupcake.
A regular size cupcake with a good dollop of buttercream
and a circle of claret coloured fondant
scored and partly filled with tiny silver dragees
and dusted with mother of pearl lustre,
giving it an almost purple effect!
A single blossom for the decoration with an overload of dragees for the centre!

Claret & Gold Blossom

  • Large size cupcake with buttercream and a leaf scored into a circle of fondant and dusted with gold lustre and topped with a Claret coloured blossom, a dusting of gold and a single gold dragee.

YoVille House

This was made for a friend who is a big Yoville fan (Sim game on facebook)
and loves her little house on there! so I thought I would make her a cake of her house,
it's not exact but I think it's quite quaint!....Hope she likes it!
The house is made up of four layers of vanilla sponge with vanilla buttercream
and covered with fondant.
It measures; 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches
