This was a fun birthday cake for a lady who is always in her wellies.

"Hi Melanie,

Just a quick email to thank you again for my fab cake!!

Everyone thought the wellies were great and the cake itself was very yummy (In fact my cousin actually thought my actual boots were on the table!!!)

Thank you and no doubt I’ll be ordering another cake from you in the future.

Kindest Regards

20110128-Dots and red roses between tiers.JPG

This 3-tier cake with Grand Prix roses between the tiers and piped icing dots on the sides was for a wedding at Vaulty Manor last year.

This is what the bride said:

Dear Melanie

Your cake was so beautiful, and everyone commented on it. Somehow we managed to keep the top tier!

Best wishes

For a small wedding this single tier cake was just right. The roses and eucalyptus matched the bride's bouquet. The wedding was at Greenwoods in Stock, Essex, last weekend.

The bride said:

"Hi Melanie

Just a quick note to say thank you for the lovely cake that you made for us. We loved the decorations and everyone commented on how delicious it tasted

Many Thanks
Debbie and Clive"

20110124-Cake for Mario.JPG

This is an alternative to having cakes in the shape of numbers. A 12" square cake with the numbers cut out of sugar taking up most of the top of the cake, but with enough room for the Happy Birthday Mario piped on. Two sprays of colourful stars on wires and some more stars on the side and top of the cake.

I made this 3-tier wedding cake with chocolate orange cake inside, white chocolate cigarillos round the sides and Thorton's chocolates on the top for a wedding at Gosfield Hall early in January. The bride was very complimentary.

And this is the cake I made for her 10th birthday, designed by herself, showing her putting a glace cherry on the top of a giant cupcake.

My little girl was 10 so on Saturday she had a 'cupcake party'. A group of little girls iced and decorated 6 cupcakes each and took them home in a presentation box.

On Sunday, 9th January from 10 to 4 I will be at Crondon Park showing my cakes and offering tastings, if anyone would like to come for an informal meeting. The venue will be dressed as for a wedding so you can see what it looks like and their other recommended suppliers will also be there for you to get ideas of designs and prices.
