I was asked to create this wonderful 3 tier Birthday cake with a little lady perched on the corner surrounded by the things in life she loves; football and boots, champagne, tanning lotion, lipstick and iPhone.

The middle tier is turned around 90 degrees to give space to sit the lady on and add more interest.

The finished cake is covered in pretty flowers and the handmade figure is covered in a purple petal styled dress.

All the little intricate items sat at the ladies pixie booted feet are all handmade and edible – some hand painted.

Ever wondered how long it takes to make a cake like this – well this took me around 17 hours but it was worth it.

This cake can lend itself to a wedding cake too if a groom was added or even just a flowered cake without the figure.

This is the reverse of the blue pink flowered handbag cake that I created for a demonstration I was giving. As I explained before it is double sided in order for me to have more techniques to show to everyone.

As usual, when I am creating my designs, I like to try something a little different from the norm.

When decorating my cakes I like to use as little cutters as possible. Sometimes, when using the cutters, I try to make something out of them that they were not originally intended for.

The title says it all really – a cake following the ‘Keep Calm’ trend of the moment.

A great style for a birthday cake.

All these words were hand cut to match the birthday invite I designed. The small letters came out sharper than I imagined and the crown came out a treat finished with piped icing.

The final embelishments are the edible printed photos of the lady whose birthday cake it was for.

This design could be easily transfered to a wedding cake.

This 90th birthday cake was created for a man who used to be a captain of a Maersk tanker before he retired.

The Maersk tanker is in 3D relief so that it is deeper at the front than the back. The blue background makes the red tanker zing and stand out more.

This is a characterised version of Bas in his captains outfit that he wore everyday on this job.

The tanker has intricate piped detail to reflect the pipes and tanks on deck and the whole cake is finished off with a red and blue rope effect border.

The lady I designed this cake for has taking up running marathons in the last couple of years so for her 50th birthday she wanted to celebrate it with a special cake.

The handmade running shoe (trainer) was created without any use of moulds – just sculptured from viewing a photo of her actual shoe. The shoe’s pink, grey and white colours are continued around the rest of the cake.

The ‘VW’ stands for Veteran Women running category.  Dainty flowers were arranged around the edge to frame the centre piece.

I was commissioned to create a cake for a lady who likes flowers and frogs (she has a lot in her pond).

The pale green background of the cake has the feel of a meadow covered in flowers in summer.

This cute little green frog sitting on the cake is the final flourish of the design.

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.

This cake was designed for my mum who did not want her age on display for her visitors with Birthday wishes.

The delicate pink covered cake contrasts well with the hand made lilac roses and white stenciled royal icing for a vintage feel.

The decoration was complete when ‘Mum’ in a contempory hand made font and little white daisies were added.

I was called upon to create this bespoke and unique Wedding cake for a ‘Royal Marine Groom’ and a ‘Fitness Instructer Bride’. The overall design being the Groom maneuvering over an obstacle course to reach and marry his bride.

The Marine has just got over the handmade tyres, he is then climbing the wall up the hand holds and has yet to pull himself up the rope to deliver the Wedding ring.


The Bride is exercising on the top with her veil, made from edible lace, flowing down and around the cake with her bouquet of pink flowers waiting for her husband to be.

Testamonial:
Ha ha, everybody was highly amused by Greg clambering up the cake with the ring to get to Charlotte on the top doing her workout.  Greg said it was ‘hoofin’ which in grown up speak means absolutely fabulous and Charlotte loved it.  So it hit the spot and tasted pretty good to.  Can recommend the carrot cake as a nice change.
 
Great big thank you xxx
