Will's Worms Birthday Cake

Well Yesterday was my Son Will's Birthday
and he wanted yet another Worm's cake!
(as in the "Worms" game)
if you recall I made him one last year.

This one is only a 6" barrel sized cake
because we have only just moved here and had
just a couple of friends round for a
slice of cake
.....so next year we will do the full on Birthday party for him!

This maybe only a small cake but Will absolutely loved it!

The cake is a Vanilla sponge with rosewater buttercream
and all the toppers are handmade and made from sugar.

Tonight I will be opening a bottle of wine and having a slice of Will's cake
 as today is my birthday and I intend on doing absolutely nothing else! :o) lol!

Thanks for stopping by!

First Batch of cakes in Germany

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.

Thanks for stopping by!

Lou & Steve's Vintage Wedding

 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
...............sooo pretty!
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.
