This cake was rather immense in size – it measured 2ft long by 14″ wide (at it’s widest point) and was constructed from 6 alternating layers of vanilla, light chocolate and rich chocolate sponge sandwiched with creamy vanilla butter cream. The layers were then carved, covered in sugar paste painstakingly detailed with sugar paste features [...]

Another wedding cake for a truly unique and individual couple – and again I LOVED making this one. Half of the work was done for me in respect of the fact that the Bride is a fellow creative spirit and basically directed me as to the patterns she would like on each tier and that [...]
This wedding cake needed to be (in the words of the bride) “traditional with a quirky twist” and to incorporate the feeling of a vintage classic wedding cake with the edginess of some classic rockabilly tattoo designs. The colour scheme was to be in keeping with the vintage theme to fit in with the venue decor. So nothing [...]
My friend ordered this for her sister’s baby shower cake, she was insistent that she wanted a cake like the vagina one I have previously made but with a redheaded baby crowning from it! Granted it’s not pretty – but childbirth just isn’t! So here it is; Yes it is a beautiful, amazing, wonderous thing in [...]
A stunning, unique cake created for a 1950s rockabilly themed wedding. The bride and groom knew that they wanted swallows, anchors and stars on the cake and the rest was left to us. The cake topper was designed and created especially for them to keep as a keepsake after the wedding; it depicts their names [...]
So I was asked by Miss Cakehead to make some of the Cock Pops I made previously for an upcoming (no pun intended) Torture Garden Valentines Ball. I loved making these Cock Pops last time, but the most fun part was coming up with the new and innovative idea, so although I was up for making them [...]
An Art Deco inspired copper and peacock feather wedding cake. I am in love with this era and have long thought about designing a cake that is reflective of the Art Deco fashions. Metallics were highly used in fashion and home decor as were sequins and highly prized peacock feathers. Offset the tiers add an extra [...]
So this week involved making some very naughty (but hugely fun) cakes for a VIP. Not too sure if I can name drop, so I won’t, but she is founder and director of a very high class adult retailers (hence the theme), and for her special birthday party she held a Cunt-ry Fair at a hide away venue in Herefordshire. [...]
A whimsical wedding cake; perfect for a sunny spring wedding where the emphasis is on fun rather than the traditional. The sugar paste ribbon roses suit the light hearted cake design and in this case also matched the ribbon roses on the brides wedding dress. The mosaic effect on the cake board completes the [...]
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 [...]
A really fun cake which was based around the brides Irregular Choice shoes. The rest of her outfit had taken shape around them so it only seemed right for her to carry that through to the colour scheme and the cake. The pattern on the bottom tier was inspired from the pattern on the shoe [...]
The time lord’s preferred method of transportation is transformed into a delectable party center piece.
