A lovely couple ordered this Birthday cake 
for their daughter 
as a gift from their grand-daughters to present to their mummy. 

They thought it would be lovely to have Willow & Blossom on the cake
 as this is the birthday girls, daughters names!
also, she has a shop of which she makes & sells (mainly) silver jewellery
....hence the silver butterfly!

They Loved it when they came to collect the cake
and said there will most probably be tears when she
is presented it from her daughters who are 5 & 2 years old.

This is the view of the Weeping Willow from the back!

I very much like the personal feel to this cake!



Absolutely LOVE these!

If the blue were slightly lighter & brighter these could look 
just like Wedgewood pieces!

These are Vanilla Cupcakes decorated with sugar blossoms,
piping and brush embroidery leaves.
Such an effective design for any Wedding or special occasion!


Various Cakes

Well, I have added quite a few different photos above
as I am in a little rush to get these posted and up to date!

There are some wedding cupcake samples and some display cakes,
just to let my Wedding Clients taste and see what's available!

I have made quite a few cupcake samples,
but I can't post them on here
until after their Wedding, 
because they are the designs they have chosen
and it would ruin the surprise!
But they are very beautiful and can't wait to share them with you!


Christmas Cookies

These cookies were made with a Nordic Christmas in mind,
fr my son's Teachers and our very lovely
lollipop man who makes sure my son crosses the road safely to & from school each day!

Really wish I had time to make more of these
for family & friends,
but it's that time of year you never get as much done as you would like!

Anyway......hope you all had a Very Merry Christmas!


Winter Scene Cookies & White Christmas Cupcakes

Remember the beautiful 
"Vintage Pearl & Ribbon Loops Wedding Cake"
 I made a while ago?
Well, the couple got back in touch to make a Christmas order
of cupcakes and cookies.
I wanted to make then really special,
 so the cookies were made like baubles and also
Beautiful Christmas Card Scenes! 
Really very pleased with the how the scenes looked!
very effective I think you'll agree!!!

As for the cupcakes she wanted white on white,
and some with blossoms,
but just to add a Wintery/Christmassy feel to them I added
some little nonpareil (Tiny sugar balls)
for that snowy touch
.....and it really worked!


Singer Sewing Machine & matching Cupcakes

Yes, another Sewing Machine Cake,
my 3rd infact!
.....and dare I say my best yet!

I love making these!

and also 6 matching cupcakes!

Blue was used this time, because it's her favourite colour
for an added personal touch!

Can't wait to make another one of these!!!

First Holy Communion Cake

I was asked to make
a First Holy Communion Cake
for their two boys.
It needed to be a simple square cake, 
with chosen inscription and a cross.
Yes, quite simple.... but still very effective for their occasion!

Welcome Home Cake

This was ordered from a soldier for her Husband
who was returning back to the UK
from Cyprus!

Such a warm feeling to get your other half home where they belong,
I know!


Christmas Donation

This is actually a dummy (Display cake)
I made for Lloyds Tsb Bank in Bishop's Waltham.
The gorgeous little picturesque town hold
a Christmas Fayre every year
and Lloyd's TSB asked me if I would donate a cake
so they could sell tickets for it 
and the money that's made, went to
"Save The Children" Charity!
How could I say no!
So I made a dummy cake for them to display in the bank
and I would make a replica using rich fruit cake
to give to the winning ticket holder.

I didn't take a photo of the real cake,
as it was quite literally exact to the one above!

I was informed that a lovely, little old lady (and her husband)
won it and was over the moon!


Technics Turntable

So my son Turned 22 in November (yes, I am still on catch-up with my post here)
and I asked him what cake he would like,
seeing that he was coming down to visit us with his girlfriend!
and he asked for a Technics Turntable
.............sooo, that's what he got!
It was pretty simple to make, 
apart from the time it took to 
place each dot individually and then had to carefully paint them!
then about 2am (yes, still up making this)
I went to fix the arm to the turntable and it broke on 3 places!!
Not happy that I had to make it all over again and wait for it to dry
before I could try again!
.........at least I had 2-3 hours sleep! :o(
He loved it! thank goodness!
well, he wouldn't dare say he didn't! LOL!!!!

Star wars Cupcakes

After ordering the Beatles cupcakes,
Kimberley then asked me if I would make some
"Star Wars" cupcakes
for her son's Birthday.
All the toppers are edible,
hand cut and crafted without using any kind of mould!
So I am REALLY pleased with these!
