A plate full of gooey chocolate Brownies and white choc chip Blondies ready and waiting for my son and his mates to feast on in celebration of my (not so) little man’s 11th birthday! (Where do the years go?)Â Â I was given orders to make these as he has spent the last 3 birthdays without so […]
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 […]

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 […]
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 […]
My first blog postÂ under the new name of Mamma Jamma Cakes was originally going to be about the reason behind my name change, or the making of the Kerrang Clown cake! Â BUT – you are going to have to wait a little longer for those posts as instead, on Fathers Day, I simply want to […]
It’s not everyday I get asked to cater for a 90th birthday so it was even more of a privilegeÂ whenÂ I wasÂ asked to make a cake for a husband and wife’s joint 90th birthday celebration!Â They are both keen gardeners and so a decision was made to create one ofÂ our “scene cakes”. The tiles are made from […]
How the snake cake was made Eric was carvedÂ 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. […]

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.
A packet of crisps made for a fan of Pickled Onion Monster Munch – but why stop there? Any crisp or snake product can be recreated in cake form. The packets are handpainted and sugarpaste snacks are made to spill out of the open packet.
