Thought I’d post this….. people say I’m good at all this stuff. Well here is a disaster – it’s a gingerbread heart biscuit with a piped outline and runout icing in the centre. Could have thrown the first one in the bin and given up, but perfect by the 3rd attempt. Sometimes you have just got to walk away, make a cup of tea and try again!
This chocolate sponge Mulberry handbag cake was made for an 18 year olds birthday party. I added a sparkler candle to the MAC lipstick. She wanted a Mulberry bag for her birthday and ended up with two, one cake and the real thing! I am really pleased with the leather look icing as I was not sure how it would turn out, but will definitely be using this again.
Now I know some people who like to make their own cupcakes but are not sure how to decorate them. So I thought I would make and sell different toppers. Kids will love these bright and fun edible lego toppers. They will fit perfectly onto cupcakes and biscuits or even larger cakes.
Here are my cute farm animal cupcakes. Just one of many themed cupcakes designs I’m working on for children’s cupcake lessons/parties.
Ok so technically it’s not winter, but at 3 degrees, if may as well be! Here is a little picture I took to cheer us all up, it’s some new china that I’ve added to the Viintage Allsorts & Cake collection for our afternoon tea business. Lovely window seat bathed in sunlight, fire on and getting ready for afternoon tea to share with friends. Bliss. .
I made this turnip cake and delivered it to a hotel ready for the party. The manager wondered why I was carrying a turnip in a cake box! The turnip was made from vanilla sponge with strawberry ice-cream flavoured buttercream. It was ordered for a man who hates turnips and so his girlfriend had the brilliant idea of having me make this for a laugh!
