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.

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.
