I absolutely LOVED creating this cake, sculpted and painted cakes are my all time favourite to make. Although it was a headache making sure he looked wolf like rather than dog like (I know, I know they’re both canines) but when someone asks for a wolf cake you really want it to look more like [...]

I fell in love with the concept for this cake, designed and made for a twin brother and sister celebrating their 80th Birthday, having had a few messages and ideas bandied around with the client about their interesting heritage and childhood years we eventually happened upon a lovely and unique idea for their cake. They [...]
A perfect cake for Gracie-Marie on her first birthday, she has been a Elmo Fan since the tender age of 4 months old! Also a cake that I loved making as I also used to adore Elmo when I was younger. This all cake covered in red sugarpaste with individual strands of “fur” twisted and textured [...]
The weekend before Christmas 2011 witnessed the most surreal of parties – for the guests all harked from 1980s cartoons or TVprogrammes and onlookers were treated to the sight of a giant pink Care Bear dancing with Mario, in turn Mario was actually married to his brother Luigi and in the corner of the bar My Little Pony was seen [...]
Who doesn’t remember this little guy from their childhood? He’s made himself known to today’s child by appearing in Toy Story 3 and now the ever popular chatterphone makes it’s first appearance in cake form.
So here she is, this years competition entry for the Decorative Exhibit class at the NEC Cake International 2011. Based upon the character of Poison Ivy, covered in chocolate paste and handsculpted, painted and decorated. A true labour of love and I truly do love her! I am so happy with the finished piece now all that remains [...]
Who doesn’t love Horton? (Ok so maybe some of you don’t you don’t need to shout!) But I love him as do my nieces and this cake was made for their joint birthday party last year. A pretty cute, bashful version of Horton with his puffball, and would you believe I even handcrafted all of [...]
So what do you get for the man who has everything? Well if he’s a petrol head – then why not get him a cake version of his own car or his dream car? In this case the gent in question had a silver Aston Martin DB9, so we took his favourite cake flavour and carved [...]
Yep I realise I still have blogs to write about the Kerrang awards and the business name change and I promise I will be doing those this weekend, but for now here’s the lowdown about the Silent Hill installation for none other than Mr Alice Cooper’s freakshow auditions. This piece was commisioned by Miss Cakehead [...]
It’s not everyday I get asked to cater for a 90th birthday so it was even more of a privilege when I was asked to make a cake for a husband and wife’s joint 90th birthday celebration! They are both keen gardeners and so a decision was made to create one of our “scene cakes”. The tiles are made from [...]
I loved making this Dalek groom’s cake, anything Dr.Who or Sci-fi related is always a challenge because there are such die-hard fans ready to pick at your work or point out bits that may have been missed (in this case my son and husband always pick up where I may have gone wrong). This Dalek [...]
How the snake cake was made Eric was carved vanilla madeira sponge cake which was then covered in sugarpaste, each scale individually imprinted, his skin handpainted and each scale highlighted before receiving his shiny coat. Being a corn snake I made him a bed of soil amongst the withered leaves and stems of the corn plantation. [...]
A fabulous figure of a frog for any frog fan!! He has been sculpted entirely from buttery vanilla sponge cake and filled with madagascan vanilla buttercream and covered in green sugarpaste painted with a sheen of green to create that froggy shine. Mr. Frog sits proudly on his pink lilypad (I know they’re usually green but the [...]
A lovely koi carp that looks like he has literally just flopped out of the pond straight onto the dish. Individually imprinted scales and handpainted pattern make for a highly realistic fish cake and is a perfect birthday cake for any keen angler or Koi carp keeper/fancier.
Perfect for a mad friend or an Alice in Wonderland themed event. This cake can be made bigger and include more details from the story. On this one we have the talking flowers, the mad tea party and the Mad Hatters hat.
This cake was obviously created for a Rolling Stones fan. The famous image, recreated in cake form, taken from the cover of best selling album The Lick.
