Snowboarding Birthday Cake

This was a surprise Birthday cake
for the customers girlfriend,
 she was off to Europe with her friends
for a snowboarding/Birthday weekend.

She even took the cake with her! :o)


Vintage Floral Pearl Wedding Cake

You will probably recognise this display cake,
I felt it needed a facelift
so I added some ivory Hydrangea's to fill it out a little!


Floral Birthday Cupcake Tower

Remember the 90th Birthday cake I had previously posted,
well these cupcakes are for the 
same lady for her and some friends to 
celebrate her Birthday a few days later!

Cupcakes are Vanilla, Lemon & Carrot Cake
So pretty!

Phineas & Ferb Cake

Before I say anything about this cake
I would like to say that I cannot take credit for the design 
as it is a take on someone else's cake.
The Birthday boy saw this cake online and really wanted it,
but all I know is that the person who made this is in the USA (I believe)
so it wouldn't be possible for them to make it
and how could I say no to a little
4 year old boy who had his heart set on the cake of his dreams!

Everything here is edible..apart from the candle....even the Phineas & Ferb Characters are sugar!

90th Birthday Cake

A cake made for a ladies 90th Birthday,
she served as a Wren in WW2
and her daughter wanted the Wren Emblem to be
added somewhere in the design
and as she loves flowers they were to 
be included also!


Halloween Coffin Cake

LOVED making this Halloween cake!
this is the 3rd cake I have made for this couple,
I love all my orders, but it's such a warm feeling when the customers
come back for more! :o)
Everything is edible and the coffin cake is made out of
chocolate cake!

Fire Extinguisher

Fire Extinguisher cake made for
a Farewell gift!
This cake was a little tongue in cheek for the recipient 
as he was very eager on Fire Drills at work
making sure everything ran smoothly and in order!

Cake was Vanilla sponge, carved and covered
and glazed then all details cut out
of fondant and also hand painted!
All edible


Wedding Fayre

I (Small Things Iced)  Exhibited at a Wedding Fayre last October
and this was my display table!

My lovely friend Anita came along to help and give me support 
as this was the first one I have done!
I was a little nervous but with the help from Anita
I felt at ease.
A pretty good day in all
and at least I will know what to expect from future Exhibitions!


Anniversary Cake

I loved making the little dog....so cute!
and the Arsenal Emblem turned out really well also
even though I am a Spurs fan! 
and yes! it was painful to have to make it! lol!


The Beatles Cupcakes

The Beatles 
Some cupcakes made for quite obviously a Beatles fan!
Decoration is all edible and hand cut & crafted
....loved making these
and really pleased with how the faces turned out!


4 Tier Wedding Cake
One of my display cakes,
although quite simple, this cake is beautiful
wrapped in pretty lace, 
gorgeous wide Olive ribbon & bows fastened with beautiful brooches.
Two of the tiers are deep cakes
giving more height to make a statement in a subtle way!


Lemony Fresh Cupcakes

My favourite flavoured cupcakes.....Lemon!
These are so fresh tasting,
Light sponge with finely grated lemon rind,
a nice dollop of good quality lemon curd 
topped with a zingy lemon buttercream
.............Heaven in cupcake form!!!


Holly & Graham's Wedding Tower

Well.... Long time no post!!!!
I got so caught up in work and neglected my poor blog in the process!
Anyway I am back and trying to sort through all my photo's
So expect quite an update over the next few weeks!
......hopefully! lol!

This was a wedding order for a lovely young couple
who got married last September,
my goodness, has it really been that long?
well, they said they definitely wanted chocolate cake with
lilac flowers and this is what we came up with!
Don't the flowers really pop out at you
from the deep, dark chocolate base!

I wish I took a photo of the room it was set-up in,
so quaint and pretty,
perfect for their intimate wedding.
