A Few Cakes!

The last few weeks have been busy but I have managed to fit a few cakes in. There was a wedding cake, a 3rd birthday cake, a 12th birthday cake, a 10th birthday cake and some cupcakes.

Our lovely neighbours, Ray and Amy, were married last weekend and I had the privilege of creating their wedding cake. Amy chose a simple design that fitted perfectly with the theme of the wedding and suited the location.

The cake was being served as dessert, so it consisted of 4 layers of mudcake in 4 flavours. Chocolate mud, white chocolate mud, caramel mud and cherry ripe mud. It was filled and covered in vanilla buttercream. Fresh flowers used in the bouquets were scattered on the tiers. The cake stood on the most amazing timber burl.

The reception was held on a private property in a lovely, big, old barn. Unfortunately the weather turned cold so the open fire was alight to warm the guests.

Here are a few shots of the venue before the guests arrived.

 Congratulations Amy and Ray, and thankyou for allowing me to create the cake for your special day.

Zane was turning 3 the same weekend. He loves everything Thomas the Tank Engine, so the cake was themed this way.

The cake was two tiers of chocolate mudcake filled with chocolate ganache and covered with fondant. I hand modelled the train and all of the decorations.

Happy Birthday Zane.

Sophie and Josh are brother and sister and I was lucky enough to make their cakes last year. Their birthdays fall in the same week, so they were having a joint sleepover party this weekend. Josh requested a lego themed cake and Sophie wanted a make-up bag. There were 24 cupcakes to accompany the cakes.

Josh's cake was deep, dark chocolate cake filled with chocolate ganache and covered with fondant. The lego pieces and lego man were all hand modelled from fondant.

Sophie's cake was butter cake filled with ganache and covered with fondant. The make-up was hand modelled from fondant.

The cupcakes were light vanilla sponge with vanilla buttercream.

Happy Birthday Josh and Sophie, enjoy your party.

Enjoy the weekend.
