This was a really sweet commission for a lady who wanted to give her daughter a baby shower party. Vanilla (gluten free), vanilla (gluten rich) and chocolate cup cakes with pastel coloured tops and tiny moulded and hand painted baby clothes, baby footprints, buttons and other baby paraphernalia. She was so pleased that she rang me when her husband brought them home to tell me they looked beautiful, and then e-mailed me later to say they tasted delicious too.

I made an almost life-size fender stratocaster cake a couple of years ago and last week I was asked to make an acoustic guitar cake in the same size.

This client often gives me an opportunity to make the kind of cake that I wouldn't normally (as primarily a wedding cake maker), and this one was deceptively simple. Two tiers of sponge with added crenulations and pastillage towers, turrets and flags. The client provided the Disney princesses. Great fun to do.

This was such a pretty commission I had earlier this month, for an occasion where three ladies were celebrating their birthdays together. Three separate but matching cakes, in chocolate, strawberry and lemon, with striped layers in matching colours inside, and graduated colour piped buttercream roses up the sides and on top. They looked so pretty displayed together.

This was a really sweet commission, with pink and white marbled sponge inside, a model pram on top and lots of girly decoration.
