This delightful cake design with its quilted effect is ideal for a birthday or even a tiered wedding cake.


The subtle pale blue and pink give the cake a vintage feeling.


The quilt effect is finished with tiny iced black dots and then different sized pretty flowers decorate the rest of the cake.


Around the cake side is a pale blue panel that provides a lovely background for the  delicate flowers.

I was really excited about creating a cake for the Wedding Cake competition at Cake International Exhibition at the NEC this month as it was the first time I have entered it. My hard work paid off as I received a Silver Award – a fantastic result.

I decided on a theme of cherubs and hearts for my entry. I loved creating these cute little cherubs with their tiny toes and hands.

They were draped in robes made from icing and tiny flowers were cut in half and attached to their shoulders then brushed with gold.

Two thirds of the cake was highly decorated with the hearts and cherubs but the other third was more simple and gently textured so the overall effect was dynamic in decor and contrast.

The more simple side used a mixture of techniques involving piping, edible lace and painted relief background.

The cake was highlighted with gold columns for the cherubs paradise, delicate roses and topped with 2 cherubs holding edible lace covered hearts.

After spending around 40 hours on my competition piece for the British Sugarcraft Guild International Exhibition this weekend, I have achieved a ‘Silver Award’ for my ‘Night At The Theatre’ cake in the section for 1st time entrants.

I created a hand sculptured montage on the Phantom of the Opera, Romeo and Juliet and ballet dancers for the show piece on top.

Dazzling colours of red, turquoise, black and gold emphasised the dramatic scenes on this cake. The vibrancy and contrast of these colours mirrored a theatres elaborate decoration where the acts are played out on stage.

The side of this extravagent cake is filled with an entranced audience watching the actors perform. The whole cake is then set aglow with gold paint all over to capture the richness and atmosphere of the old theatres.

For my ‘Silver Award’ I received a certificate and I am thrilled to bits.

If you would like me to decorate a cake for your special occasion I can deliver to the East Midlands area, Nottingham, Derby, Leicester etc.
