Dionne’s mum’s 50th cake

A last minute, day before order was this one. A cake for Dionne’s mum’s 50th birthday. Luckily I didn’t have a cake order for the Saturday, so I managed to step up to the breach and make her a cake.

Pretty much free reign on this one. She wanted pink, purple, feminine & elegant for her mum.

It’s an 8″ vanilla sponge.

Papa’s 60th birthday cake

This was a relatively simple request to make up. A vanilla sponge in the theme of a Real Madrid football shirt. It had to have Papa on the back and his age.

Google’s a great tool when researching something in my eyes! It certainly helped me to make the shirt in the right colours with the 3 stripes down the sleeves!

Another surprised birthday boy got his cake!

Gary’s racing car

This was my first ever carved cake. It was made from a two layer vanilla traybake sandwiched together with jam & buttercream.

It was made for the brother of a friend of mine, who’s sister in law is a truly amazing (but incredibly busy) cake maker who didn’t have time to make this one. To say I was nervous was a true understatement; I’ve seen Fiona’s cakes!!!

It was decorated on the afternoon I came out of hospital after having Glaucoma tests on my eyes. My eyesight was still pretty fuzzy when I piped it as you can see 🙁

I also made a dozen gluten free cupcakes for my friend’s husband & daughter who are both Coeliacs so they could have a cake too.
