Stars and Stripes

Red, White, and Blue: One of my colleagues is about to set off for three months travel across America so we had a little afternoon tea for the occasion.

A miniature Topsy Turvy Cake made of white chocol
ate mud cake with ganache and fondant - there were no left overs so I'll assume it not only looked good but was also tasty.

Plain and Simple

A client asked if I could cover a fruit cake for her grandmothers 70th Birthday. It was relatively easy request give that the caked had been made and the client had ordered some flowers to be placed on the cake. Just a simple request - white and plain.

I covered the cake with a layer of marzipan and fondant and kept decorations simple, a plain handmade rope band and roses on the edge of the cake board.

Brunch on the Run

While I have a passion for baking and cake decorating, one of my other great loves is running. I regularly race distances from 3km up to 100km, including marathons. So with this year's racing season well underway I'm heading to brunch with my coach and good friend, Sean Williams with his lovely wife Cindy, daughter Matilda and plenty of running friends from Sean's squad.

To help replenish the energy levels of the group (after our morning run), I baked some cupcakes; White Velvet with Rose-water buttercream and Chocolate Butter Cupcakes with Belgian Buttercream, all with handmade decorations.
