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.

This fabulous lavendar cake was designed for a ladies 80th Birthday party. The corner detail would also be fantastic as a multi tiered wedding cake.

All four corners have been  decorated with stylised lavendar growing from the base and on to the cake top. First the green stems were iced, then purple for the flowers and a final flourish of green leaves.

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.

They were draped in robes made from icing and tiny flowers were cut in half and attached to their shoulders then brushed with gold.

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 am in training to be a demonstrator for the British Sugar Guild and recently I demonstrated my cake inspired by Maria Theresa’s Dress of the Austrian Royal family at my local branch.

Last year I visited the Hofburg palace in Innsbruck, Austria and was so amazed by it I bought a book about it. The book told the story of Maria Theresa and what she achieved at the palace in the 18th century.  She had many beautiful dresses and there was an exquisite painting of her in one which I chose to inspire this fabulous cake.

I wanted to create a bejewelled cake in extravagent golds and silver and covered in pearls. The side of the cake was designed to reflect the dress bodice and was first covered in edible lace then painted in gold and silver.

Each pearl was hand crafted and coated in a special pearlescent edible powder mixed with dipping solution and others in red or silver. I made a cape for the back of the cake by starting with a red embossed panel painted in gold, and accentuated with gold buttons.

This cake could  be for any special event including silver and gold wedding anniversaries, in fact it could be made into an amazing wedding cake of several tiers that would look fabulous stood on the wedding table.

This cake was designed for a lady who loves shoes and handbags (who doesn’t?) and had a surprise when she received her beautiful cake.

The handbag was sculpted out of chocolate sponge cake before being covered in vanilla buttercream and bright pink icing sugar.

The flowers on the front have had edible lace applied onto the petals with tiny piped dots around the edge to give definition.

I imprinted a pattern into a piece of icing sugar and added eible lace onto another and then this was draped around the base like fabric.

The whole appearance was finished off with a delicate handmade shoe and letters with birthday wishes.

This cake was designed for an Irish couple who wanted a subtle Irish theme in their wedding cake.

The two tier cake was in pale green, an unconventional colour for a wedding cake, and it was highlighted with edible lace around the sides to give a vintage feel.

The top of the cake was completed with a big bow which was also covered in edible lace and four shamrocks, one on each corner on the bottom tier.

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.

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.
