Killer Brownie Girl

Those of you who follow me on Facebook will know that my eldest daughter is turning out to be a bit of an ace at baking.

A Slice of the Wedding Cake

An arty shot of Elaine and Shaun’s wedding cake on Thursday, showing just a slice of the action. It’s my trademark black and white cake, very striking and I usually dress it with red flowers. This time it was the dark purple cala lilies that were chosen for the job and they came up trumps. […]

Glorious Wedding Cupcake Tower

“Now, that’s what I call a cupcake tower” uttered a lovely chap at the Captains Club yesterday as I finished setting up Katie and Simons ten tiers of cupcake splendidness. Compliments like this fuel me up when times are busy and I need the feedback to fire up my cookers and keep me baking on […]

SAS Style Cake Delivery

A wedding booked in mid August wouldn’t normally warrant too much extra thought to be given to the delivery arrangements.

Feel the Cake Love

Every layer in all it’s delicious glory. Made and delivered especially for the loveliest of couples, Emma and Kris, to Compton Acres. They put a lot of thought and care into the planning of their cake, even ordering extra matching brooches for their bridesmaids gifts. I love it when there is lots of cake respect […]

Emma and Kris

Every cake has a back and a front. The front tends to be where all the action takes place, the glitz, glamour and the sparkle. The back is just the back, facing out the window or against the wall. The back, however, is sometimes where the photographer will stand to get a picture of the […]
