Nadia and Victoria had a joint 21st birthday party on Saturday. Nadia booked her cake on Tuesday and Victoria decided she wanted one too, on Thursday.

I didn't want them to look the same but I did want them to be a pair, so they were the same size and shape, just with different colour cigarillos and chocolate ruffles: Victoria wanted pastel colours and Nadia wanted strong colours and strawberries.

I have bought a new set of butterfly cutters/moulds and was delighted to be able to try them out on two completely different styles of wedding cakes a couple of weeks ago. Cadbury purple topped chocolate cupcakes with white sugar filligree butterflies dipped in edible white glitter, with a top tier with purple butterflies for Prested Hall; and a 3-tier white iced cake with a cascade of sage green butterflies in a variety of shades, again some dipped in edible white glitter for a wedding at Crondon Park. I love my job.

20120407-Last minute birthday cake.JPG

I made this last minute chocolate birthday cake for Sara last week, or to be precise, for Sara's mother. Sara was very pleased and sent me this note:

Hi Melanie,

Just a note to say 'Thank you' for such a wonderful cake.

My Mum was over the moon with it and had a lovely time at her party.

So many people commented on how amazing the cake looked and how good it tasted and smelt!

I've attached a photo of it on the stand etc. for you

Kind Regards

I made this cake a while ago but I came across the picture and liked it over again. It has alternate layers of white and millk chocolate cigarillos, with white and milk chocolate calla lilies. Square with 4-tiers it has a contemporary feel. The picture is taken at The Fennes, in Bocking, Essex.
