I’m alive!!!ย 

Goodness I seem to have been quiet lately! It’s not for lack of cake making I promise. It’s more lack of time to sit down and post to you all. Forgive me? Please? I know you will, you’re all too lovely not too ๐Ÿ™‚

So here’s what I’ve been up to!  


Getting in a spin

Getting in a spin in the form of a washing machine! A cakey first for me. This was a birthday cake for a gentleman who fixes washing machines. No getting away from them even on your birthday! But it was a fun cake to make.

I also got to play with more pink ๐Ÿ™‚ I really am such a girl!! And the reactions to the two tier christening cake were a delight. It’s what makes it worth doing.

Things are a little quiet now as my boy is on Easter holiday, but I’m still getting into the cake room! I’ve a white flower display in mind I’m trying out. Watch this space!!!





Pretty in pink

A few weeks ago I was asked to do what, for me, was a dream cake. A pink wedding cake! I’m such a girl that this instantly appealed. Although I did double check that they wanted the actual cake pink, and not just pink accents. Nope, pink cake with white roses. My inner six year old did cartwheels.
The cake itself was Madagascan vanilla, with raspberries and black raspberry liquor syrup.

When we go to the venue the colour made perfect sense.

Pink was a theme this week with another pink cake. This time for a 40th birthday.

This week was for the girls!




Surfs up!!!

I had a request while I was in New York for a 40th birthday cake for delivery today. The theme was surfing! Fitting seeing as we are in Cornwall, and the surfing is amazing. The birthday girl has two boys who love to surf, and they needed to be represented.
Cakes are vanilla with vanilla buttercream and raspberry jam. And chocolate with ganache.

Happy birthday Toria! Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚





When the birthday girl doesn’t like pink…

Today I’ve been finishing an order for a 40th birthday. When I asked what she would like I was told, no pink! And modern. Other than that it was up to me, as long as to 40 was not obvious.

So this was what I came up with. Simple and modern colours with no pink.

The main cake is chocolate mud cake. With chocolate ganache.
The cupcakes are chocolate, vanilla and lemon. With vanilla buttercream.
