80th Celebration

My mother-in-law Ruth celebrated her 80th Birthday this weekend, and I had the pleasure of making the cake.

The cake itself is Passionfruit Mud Cake filled with white chocolate ganache and fresh passionfruit giving an extra hit of flavour.  I handmade the lily, frangipanis, rope work and the name plaque with sugarpaste and fondant.

Kitchen Tea by the Sea

I received an impromptu cake order for a Kitchen Tea. My client explained the Kitchen Tea invitations and the beach wedding theme, so I suggested using colours of the beach, and I hand-made some frangipanis and sea shells for decoration.

The cake itself is a super moist White Chocolate Mud Cake; the end result is a cake beautifully decorated and 100% edible.

I slightly marbled the blue fondant to give a watery effect.

Happy Birthday Harper

Handcrafted 3D butterflies

When a beautiful little girl celebrates her 3rd Birthday everything should be especially pretty; so I was delighted to bake and decorate cupcakes for Harper's special occasion.  These cupcakes are a consistent favourite of my customers; Chocolate Butter Cake iced with Vanilla Buttercream and finished with assorted handmade fondant decorations.

A delight to make and pretty enough to eat.
