These cupcakes were for a celebration where the decorative theme was balloons. Only 30 were used for the display, as it took up a lot of room, the other 40 were already packed in clear pods ready to be distributed as the guests left the party. I thought it was a really innovative way to display cupcakes, entirely the idea of the gentleman organising the party. I also liked the way they looked in their travel boxes, all the colours mixed up, but harmonising.

This 12" square chocolate orange cake was perfectly suited to having chocolate orange gerbera as decoration, together with white, marbled and plain chocolate cigarillos round the sides. It made the whole cake room smell chocolatey.

I had a text from the customer:

Hi Melanie. Thank you so much for making such a great cake. Everybody loved it.

This bride wanted the cake to be a fun feature, and by the time it was cut the bride and groom were Mr and Mrs John Parrott.

The very next day the bride sent me this e-mail:

"Hi Melanie
We would like to thank you for doing our cake everyone really liked it. Was a nice talking point in the evening.
Kind Regards
Jayne and John"

This engagement cake is a 12" lemon sponge heart, iced in lemon coloured icing with funky little hearts piped all over in royal icing. My client sent the following message:

"Just letting you know that Chaz and Kirsty loved their engagement cake
and it tasted fantastic. Very pleased as usual."

I'm looking forward to making their wedding cake next year.

The wedding season traditionally starts at Easter, and it has certainly done so for Melanie Ferris Cakes, with 2 wedding cakes and an engagement cake this week. The first wedding cake is a 3-tier vanilla sponge cake, iced in ivory, with a cascade of handmade sugar roses, in ivory, champagne and gold. The Baronial Hall at Crondon Park looked lovely with vases of ivory roses, and gold bows on the chairs.
