The colours may be traditional of Christmas  but the design is a little more contemporary and could be adapted for any occasion.

2013 McKeough Family Christmas Cake

Christmas Day is a very special day in my family and each year I make the cake. My young nieces, Ruby (5) and McKenzie (3) suggested the design wanting a "Mary" cake. I do think they would have preferred a chocolate cake rather than the fruit cake recipe my late mother selected.

A Festive Welcome.....

I don't usually make a Christmas cake for  my husband and I but this year we are hosting some international friends for a couple of days so I thought a festive welcome would be appreciated.

Coming of Age - Happy 20th Wedding Anniversary

This cake is to celebrate the 20th wedding anniversary of a wonderful couple and the union of their families.

The white heart is devils food cake (chocolate) filled and covered with dark chocolate ganache. The red heart  is a raspberry and hazelnut cake iced with buttercream.  Both cakes were finished with fondant and fondant figurines to represent their four children playing in the yard in Bland Street.
