Inspired by watching Downton Abbey and old episodes of Poirot I wanted to create a beautiful Art Deco style wedding cake. Each tier has it’s own distinct style, the top one takes it cue from 1930’s cinemas and other similar buildings, the second from flapper dress fabrics popular at the time.

The third tier takes it’s ideas from cabaret and jazz clubs and the lower tier depicts a wedding scene, complete with the happy couple, a Rolls Royce and the church on the hill.

Art Deco Inspired Wedding Cake Detail

All the fine details were hand cut out to create this unique cake.  The only bought cutter used on this cake was for the dainty pink flowers around the band.

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.

This cake is a two sided handbag cake which I made for a British Sugar Guild demonstration in a couple of weeks. It will be used to demonstrate lots of different techniques and hopefully inspire people to experiment with their own cake designs.

Would you believe this is a cake?

Ideal for any celebration!

I painted a pattern in the background to give it some depth. Then flowers made of petal paste were attached over this. The same flower cutter was used to emboss the handbag top and it was finished off using a homemade button mould to create the clasp.

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.

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 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.

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 for a young ladies 21st Birthday recently.

The number 21 was created out of sugar paste covered with edible lace and accented with small piped dots.

Around the top edge delicate pink pretty flowers were placed and around the sides edible lace and more flowers were added.

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.
