20151130-60th_anniversary.jpg

This week I made two anniversary cakes, and they were so different, in style and in the length of relationship they were celebrating. The first anniversary was all milk chocolate with a chocolate orange centre and a gold bow and lettering, and the 60th anniversary was a fruit cake with dainty sugar flowers and a blue colour scheme. I would like to wish both couples many more happy years together.

I delivered and set up a wedding cake at Hylands House in Chelmsford for the first time since they have installed their Pavilion wedding venue. This cake was for a fairly large Indian Wedding and the venue was well suited to such an event. There was a 3 tier square cake with sugar lace all round and flowers between the tiers, extra cutting cake for the kitchen and two cup cake towers in 3 flavours for the children, and anyone who didn't want lemon cake.

One of my dummy wedding cakes appeared on television yesterday. ITV's This Morning hired a white cake to promote a wedding competition and it was very clearly in the background near Gok Wan. The lady who hired it was kind enough to send me this professional photograph.

I made two different christening cakes with bunting on for the same day last month. Here is one of them - The baby is called Jemima, hence the Jemima Puddleduck on top. I made this client's wedding cake a few years ago, it is so nice when a bride comes back for a Christening cake.

Having half and half wedding cakes are all the rage at the moment. This one, which I made last month is a very simple version, just batman of one side and a drape and blue sugar ribbon on the other. The bride and groom were very pleased with it and posted pictures on facebook saying how much they liked it.

This cake was for a small wedding, one tier fruit cake and the other chocolate. It is nice to use my royal icing skills occasionally. The wedding was at Greenwoods in Stock last month.

Naked Wedding Cake with chocolate hearts, and roses and fruit - yet another naked cake - they are so popular at the moment. This one had very specific roses on it - earl grey, sweet avalanche and amnesia as well as raspberries and strawberries, white chocolate hearts and gypsophilia. Something for everyone. This was for a wedding at Gosfield Hall last month. The cake stand is mine, and is available for hire
