Army Theme Birthday Tower

Loved making this order!
...for a 3 time returning customer (which is always good!)
This is the second birthday cake I have made for this
particular little boy,
the last cake was a jungle theme....something tells me he likes green! lol!

Here are some of the Boots cupcakes,
how cute are these! :o)

These are the mini tanks

and finally the hand grenades!
I did make little rifles too but forgot to photograph them separately!
Everything on this cake and cupcakes are all edible and handmade
including the large tank topper!

Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog

Daisy & Sea Shell Cupcake Tower #2

Saturday's Wedding Cake Order.
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!

Handbag & Shoes Birthday Cake

This was a last minute order for the ladies daughter's 21st Birthday.

As you can see by the design that Adrianne
absolutely loves designer handbags and shoes!

I really enjoyed making this cake
 and if Adrianne loves it as much as her mother did when she collected the cake
I will be very happy!
The cake is a Zesty Lemon 7" decorated with handmade sugar decorations!


Golden Wedding Anniversary Cake

This cake was made for my friends parents
who were celebrating their Golden Wedding Anniversay!
They are an amazing couple and I really wanted
to make them something quite special!

5" Top Tier was a Victoria Sponge,
7" Middle Tier was a Rich and Boozy Fruit Cake
and the 10" Bottom Tier was a Zesty Lemon Sponge.

Each rose was dusted with edible gold dust
gradually getting lighter towards the outer petals
and the blossoms had gold centres.

They absolutely loved this cake as did all their guests.
I was lucky enough to be invited to the party
and it we all had a fabulous time!


Zebra Striped Cupcake Tower

These were ordered by a returning customer
(fourth time returning)
for her sisters 40th Birthday
who is a Newcastle Fan
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.

I love this design!


Champagne Bottle Cake

I was asked to make a Champagne Bottle Cake
for a couple who were Celebrating their 40th (Ruby) Wedding Anniversary

The cake is a vanilla sponge filled with Rose Water Buttercream
and carved into shape.

To give the bottle the frosted tones
I airbrushed it and was really pleased with the results!

The cake measures (at widest point)
13cms x 33cms
