It’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.
I 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!
My cousin Cindy was turning 50 and her husband Saul asked me to make a cake for the celebration. They love dogs and have a sweet little dachshund named Rusty.
I tried to make the cake look a like their little guy and feed 20 party-goers too. Good times!
Today is my birthday so I made myself a birthday cake! It’s called “Self portrait in berries and buttercream.”
Happy birthday to me!
I 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.
My co-worker Jenna mentioned that her boyfriend is a self-proclaimed Star Wars nerd and that he particularly favours the older characters, like Darth Vadar and Yoda. Here they are in silhouette form, duking it out with light sabers. A perfect salute to Jeremy’s celebration of his 25th birthday.
My friend asked me to do a birthday cake for her daughter who had just broken her wrist and was celebrating her 19th birthday.
We figured that a cake that looked like an arm in a cast would be something she’d remember for a long time.
Get well soon and happy birthday Liv!
