Radley Handbag Cake

My first attempt at a handbag cake......
and really loved making it!
Everyone loves a little Radley bag and couldn't resist
replicating this in cake form!

A couple of weeks ago I had a phone call
asking if I would donate a cake to put in a raffle
(along with cakes from other local cake makers/designers)
at the Royal Navy Sultan Summer Show (Gosport)
so if you live nearby,
pop on down to the show and buy a raffle ticket
and try and win my cake!

Rolly's Toy Box Cake

An all edible (except for the lid which is a sugar covered board)
toy box cake for Rolly's 3rd Birthday!

A very last minute order of which I am so pleased to have made,
All the models are some of Rolly's favourite toys,
and I love how Mike Wazowski from Monster Inc.
turned out!
His mum came and collected the cake this afternoon and especially loved
the little model of Rolly!
....and who could blame her!

"Happy Birthday Rolly!"

Cake is Chocolate sponge with chocolate ganache.

Hot Pink Beetle Car Cake

I love this cake!!
and I know I said it's hot pink but the photo makes it look red,
trust me it's pink!

It took me quite a while to actually make the first cut on this cake
to carve the shape,
just something about car cakes that make me freak a little
but I'm not worried about it now
.......bring on the next one I say!

This cake is quite obviously for a
young lady turning 18 who loves bright pink.

The cake itself is a vanilla sponge with rosewater buttercream
Measurements:  Length 10" x Width 6.5" x Height 5.5"
Board size = 12" x 10"
