This cake was inspired by my beautiful large lilac poppies that I grew from seed in my new garden. In the Summer they burst into these fantastic delicate flowers which only lasted one day before throwing all the petals around the garden like confetti.
I have never made these flowers before and do not have any metal cutters so I cut off a head and dismantled it. Sometimes they only had 4 petals and sometimes 6. I proceeded to make templates in card of the petals to keep for future use and took a photograph to cross reference with as well.
The center was made first and then the stamens were added after that. The white with a hint of pale lilac petal paste was cut and wires inserted to produce four large petal. Finally they were painted to simulate the patterns on the real flowers; I like my finished flowers to look pretty but not altogether too realistic to show they are handmade.
The cake was completed with a frill down the front that highlights the flower.

This comission was for an elegant ivory coloured wedding cake covered in edible lace and lace roses delicately placed on 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.
The cake is pictured displayed on the optional silver wedding cake stand which can be included for an additional charge.

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.
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.

I have been waiting for an opportunity to try out a new type of fine, flexible icing which can be used to make edible lace. The sky is the limit with possible uses for this type of icing but I decided to create a simple design first.
The edible lace sheet was trimmed out following the edge of the flower pattern and it was simply curved around the side of the cake over a contrasting coloured icing.
To add a little flourish to the top of the cake I used some more of the lace to construct a delicate rose.

Continuing my cup cake mini series I created these pure white iced hearts to stand vertically on top of each cake. The cakes themselves are decorated with white icing ribbons.
This design would be perfect for a white wedding especially when accompanied by a larger matching topper cake.
These are more intricate than some of my other cupcake designs and as such they are priced at £3.50 each, minimum quantity 12. Please contact me if you would like to place an order for your special occasion.
