Being vendors at HOPE Farmers Market we were thrilled when asked to make their 4th birthday cake. We decided to use Mon as the inspiration. He’s the subject of their very first poster and their mascot, a Jamaican monster who looks like he could use a little love. But it’s a birthday party, so we […]

Nov 30th, 2009 by Gemma | Comments Off on Showpieces

While studying as part of my coursework I had to design and make two showpieces, one in chocolate and one in sugar. The one in chocolate had to be film or book themed so I went with Harry Potter. Using two big heavy tomes (titled from the series) as my base I then had the […]

Christmas Is All Around

Dec 24th, 2008 by Gemma | Comments Off on Christmas Is All Around

And since it’s the festive time of year, what’s more festive than a Christmas Cake. Now, this is apparently an entirely English thing that I’m introducing America to, but it’s a good cake, even if it is a fruit cake. But it’s a good fruit cake (I’ve seen the ones in the shops here, I […]
