This 10 inch square sponge cake was created last week. It needed to have a clean and simple but intricate stylish design for Bill’s 80th birthday party.
Firstly I consulted with the client about what kind of style, detail and colours they required which then followed with a computer generated design sent by email for approval.
It’s always best to ask about the person whose birthday it is; what do they like to do, follow, hobbies etc., and then it gives you an idea what to make for the cake.
To give you an idea of the scale (how small) this design is the plane was about 70mm long. All created using modelling paste onto a board covered with sugarpaste, this was produced a few days before covering the cake so it gave me plenty of time to get it right. The board was then attached to the cake with royal icing which meant that prior to cutting the cake, the design could be removed and saved for memories.
Techniques used in this design involved hand modelling, hand painting and piping and therefore take time and care to reach the desired effect.

Hello everyone. Just completed this fantastic 1st rosette birthday cake for Emma who likes horses and likes to win too.
It’s been created in pastel blues, yellows, and greens with pretty flowers around the base (she doesn’t like pink but the cake still looks pretty).
Fortunately I had a rosette in the house to model this from. My husband came first in a classic car show with his Rover P6 and it’s usually hung up on his computer. It is always a great help if you have an actual item in front of you that you are making so you can see all the details and shape from every angle – obviously if you were modelling something like a horse this wouldn’t apply….lol.
After creating the ribbons and rosette in modelling paste the cake was completed by piping 1st Emma and Happy 11th Birthday… and the cake was absolutely loved by the little lady.

I was commissioned to create this wonderful Golden Anniversary cake for a couple celebrating 50 years of wonderful marriage. Congratulations you both.
This couple are a real inspiration and so they required a beautiful fruit cake decorated in gorgeous gold flowers to signify their 50 years together.
I really enjoyed creating these little flowers using specialist cutters and veiners and then finished these by painting them gold once they had dried.
When searching for the correct ribbon I had my gold lustre dust in my hand and the ribbon in the other as I wanted a good match (there are a few different golds – two different golds would clash and not look beautiful enough).
And then with a steady hand I piped the wording onto a pre-hardened plaque I had made. Once that was dry I used the finest brush I had to painted the piping in the same gold.
