90th birthday

Floral 90th CarolIt’s not every day someone turns 90! Carol’s daughter asked me to make a cake to honour her mum. She especially loves purple and is proud of her Scottish roots, so could I add some Scotch thistles?
Buttercream was preferred for the cake itself but I added a few fondant flowers, amongst the piped buttercream ones to make the cake really pop. The cake fed 40 plus party-goers.
I’ve known Carol for what seems like a million years, so I hope she really loved her cake and had a wonderful time at her birthday gathering.

A day at the spa

spa cakeI can’t think of a better way to bring in a 30th birthday than with a day at the spa. Apparently Anna is a big fan of “a spa day” and loves soaking in a hot tub.
Here she is, a fondant version of herself that is, luxuriating in all those bubbles. And there’s even has a mojito, her fave, balancing on the tub’s edge.
Happy birthday Anna. Enjoy!

Harry Potter

Harry PotterI was never a huge Harry Potter fan and although I have seen one of the films, I had never read any of the books and didn’t really know all the lore of the story.
So, a friend at work helped me out. The name of that ball thingie with wings? A snitch. That hat with a face? The sorting hat. Colours of Harry’s scarf? Gold and red. Oh, the details!
But in the end I was delighted with the results. And so too, more importantly, was Quinny, the birthday girl.
