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
