Cow Cake

I was asked to make a surprise 21st birthday cake for a girl who grew up on a dairy farm, hence her love of cows. I was just asked for cows and grass but felt i needed to "girlify" the cake a bit so made lots of flowers and butterflies. Natasha likes to feed the ducks with her baby daughter so I added some ducks and a swimming cow for the fun of it.
I wrote the happy birthday message on a "gate" to add to the farm theme. I loved making this cake, it was so much fun! Hope you liked it Natasha, Happy Birthday!
This has given me an idea for a cheeky monkey cake for my nephew, watch this space. 

Evie's First Birthday Princess Cake

Baked this for my niece Emma's baby Evie who turned one year old. Evie is a very cute princess so thought a very girlie cake was needed. 

Decided to bake very fudgey chocolate sponge with chocolate buttercream because its everyone's favourite but also because it would be fantastic to see Evie diving in with her hands and making a chocolatey mess, as all one year olds should! 
Happy Birthday Evie. X

Its my best ever rich chocolate spongecake sandwiched together with dark chocolate buttercream and decorated with dark chocolate cigarello tubes and ferrero rocher chocolates. YUMMY! If i could dream in chocolate, this would be it. Happy Birthday Adam.

Monochrome Cake

Made this for my Son's headteacher as she was retiring. It's vanilla buttermilk sponge, really moist and delicious, with vanilla Swiss buttercream and raspberry conserve. Covered in fondant icing with white cut out flowers and black sugar pearls on the quilted tier. 
I was taking the cake to school on Friday 22nd but when i opened the curtains we were surrounded by over a foot of snow. All schools in Flintshire were closed and we were going nowhere. The following day we had a further foot of snow! 
So i decided to cut up the cake and gave to my surrounding neighbours so it didn't go to waste! Cake Aid!
