Hello everyone. Just completed this fantastic 1st rosette birthday cake for Emma who likes horses and likes to win too.

1st Rosette Birthday Cake

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).

Rosette Detail

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.

Rosette Happy Birthday Cake

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.

Just a quick word to wish everyone a Happy Easter.

I whipped up these pretty cookies to take to work as an Easter treat for my colleagues.

These cute bunny cookies are chocolate flavour and the egg cookies are a tangy orange flavour. Then I decorated them in sugarpaste –  they make a great feast for any eyes.

You will probably recognise this cake but notice that its more vibrant in colour than before. I decided to take my first design one step further to show how the design can evolve into this beautiful celebration cake.

Extra Beautiful Butterfly Celebration Cake

All the previous hand-painting made the the gold, turquoise and a hint of silver easy to apply – like a childs colouring-in book.

This design would be wonderful for any type of celebration cake – even a wedding cake with a difference.

This comission was for an elegant ivory coloured wedding cake covered in edible lace and lace roses delicately placed on top.

Ivory Rose Lave Top

Around each tier a delicate edible lace in white was place over the ivory coloured sugarpaste for a subtle and stylish contrast.

Mounted on the cake to finish the design were some beautiful hand made roses created in the same delicate lace.

This is a cake for that someone special in your life on Valentines Day. Its overall heart shape covered in hearts and flowers shows that you love and appreciate them. This design would also work well as a birthday or wedding cake.

I’ve been experimenting with a new kind of edible lace and I had an idea that it would make a beautiful veil for a bride figure on a wedding cake. This cake was to show what might be possible with it.

I thought the bride and groom figures would look delightful sat on a kissing seat on top of the cake with bridesmaids sat around the cake dangling their tiny feet off the edge to add a little colour.

I loved dressing the bride with her full length dress and lace veil and the bridegroom is resplendant in his top hat and tails.

The brides veil was made in edible lace and cascades down the cake and behind the cute little bridesmaids.

This is a cake I baked and decorated for me! I had a small family gathering to celebrate my birthday, and this cake was the centrepiece.

The cake is sculptured in a gourmet dark chocolate fondant rather than regular icing because it has a rich chocolate flavour.

I liked the idea of adding frills so I sculptured the edges with waves. It was topped with a lovely flower in the centre and all the edges were hand painted with edible gold paint.

Inspiration for my cake designs can spring from anywhere. These cupcakes incorporate the flower shapes and colours that I saw on a cushion in a shop window.

As the background colour for the flowers was brown I decided to use chocolate cupcakes topped with chocolate icing.

As you can see I have highlighted each flower with hand piped accents and each one is placed into a matching decorative lace wrapper.
