This is a nice novelty cake for a special occasion. I was given the brief of 'a golf cake for a lady but it mustn't be girly'. I looked at lots of golf cakes on the internet, many of green scenes, but I knew the party colour scheme was purple and silver. I think I hit just the right note of feminine elegance, without it being 'girly'.

Here is a close up of a spray of red sugar roses made for a Ruby Wedding Anniversary cake last week. It also contains some lily of the valley, blossoms and pearls and red beads on wires for an extra bit of shimmer.

This pretty little cake was for a very small wedding. To give it a bit of extra height the bride purchased a glass pedestal stand to display it. It is covered in small sugar blossoms with pale pink centres.

Here is a picture from the top.

The first local strawberries this season are available, so to celebrate here is a double birthday cake, with milk and white Belgian chocolate cigarillos, milk and white chocolate ruffles and strawberries dipped in white chocolate. The perfect birthday cake/dessert.

Gift Box of Cup Cakes.JPG

This box of a dozen cupcakes, each with a smooth sugarpaste top and a handmade sugar rose, all decorated in 3 different pale pinks, is a work of art and a labour of love. Boxed securely, the gift is decorated with a pair of matching paper roses. Probably too pretty to eat.

I thought this was a dramatic cake for an octagenarian biker. I made a large 80 into a road and put the motorcyclist on it. Note: I put 'give way' markings on the 8 to keep everything safe.

A lot of brides like a bit of glitter. I know I would. Edible glitter on sugar roses gives the cake sparkle and carries a glittery theme through.

Pretty sparkly 21st birthday cake.JPG

The brief for this 21st Birthday cake was 'pretty, sparkly and girly', so there is edible silver glitter, edible pink hearts, little sugar blossoms on the 21, and then glittery blossoms, stars and 21s, and some sugar spirals, on wires so that all that sparkle shimmers and moves. Have a lovely birthday Lynsey.

Easter Chocolate Cake.JPG

I made this chocolate cake as a raffle prize at my daughter's school Easter Fayre. It made quite a stir, with its pretty spring colours and vast amounts of white chocolate ruffles, and, of course, mini eggs.
