Alice In Wonderland Baby Shower

May 25th, 2015 by Gemma | Comments Off on Alice In Wonderland Baby Shower

There’s nothing more fun than being our own clients! We usually use it as an excuse to test out new recipes and go a little overboard. Our baby shower cake was no exception. We had an Alice in Wonderland theme so finally decided on the Caterpillar atop his mushroom asking “whooo are youuu?” as the […]

We’re always thrilled when people return to us for more cake. That means we made them happy, and that makes up very happy indeed. That’s what we’re here for after all. This cake was a 9″ bottom tier and a 6″ top tier. The Blue on the top is modeled from rice crispy treats so […]

Cthulhu Cake

Dec 2nd, 2013 by Gemma | Comments Off on Cthulhu Cake

la! la! Cthulhu Fthagn! All hail the Greatest of Old Ones, worshiped by cultists and feared. How to turn something that is described as unspeakable or the “sticky spawn of stars” into cake. Thankfully some brave souls lingered and before the madness took them described “a monster of vaguely anthropoid outline, but with an octopus-like […]

I was never really a fan of Sesame Street, at least, that I can remember. But cookie monster is my firm favourite, maybe because I share the love for cookies, though I’d like to think I’m tidier about eating them than he is. The bottom tier of this cake is vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream, […]

This is such an adorable design I grinned when I saw the request crop up in my email. I feel bad that the photos have been sat on my computer waiting for me to share them with you. Our vanilla butter cake makes up the balloon while the basket and little baby elephant there are […]

Red Cardinal

Carrying on the nature theme from earlier this week we have this cardinal cake. Created for a nature photographer we really wanted to make it look like a photograph on top.

Butterflies

First up came the blue morpho butterfly. A strawberry cake with a vanilla buttercream. After considering my options I decided that painting the butterfly onto the cake was going to be the best method. So when just a few weeks later I was asked for a monarch butterfly I knew that was going to be […]

The Sleep Book

May 10th, 2013 by Gemma | Comments Off on The Sleep Book

A baby shower cake with the Chippendale Mupp on top. Who is he you ask? He’s a character from The Sleep Book by Dr Seuss. It’s only been the last few years that I’ve been introduced to Dr Seuss, I don’t remember ever reading him as a child (help me out here Mum? Did we […]
