The lovely Ali and Fiona celebrated their milestone birthday together in May this year. They’re both teachers so I decided to make a literature and teacher themed cake for their big bash.
None of the party guests got to eat any cake though, how funny! My camera man went on strike again, clearly….
My friend Adi asked us to her wedding and I also got the priviledge of making her wedding cakes. They had a mix of carrot cakes and chocolate cakes and they were woodland themed to go along with the slight squirrel theme of the wedding. Another display of shabby chic/retro cake table which looked lovely with all her flea market tea cups and tea pots.
Adi kept to her Portuguese roots by continuing the tradition of linking arms to eat a cake each. Two little squirrel bride and groom sit on top of the chocolate top cake.
I loved doing this cake in December 2012. It was a lovely commission for a wonderful lady with a passion for birds. I got to paint on sugarpaste, which I love doing. More photos to come shortly, but here’s one for now.
Well, we’re just speeding through 2012 (I’m sure there were more cakes than this) and we’re up to December 2012 and Hettie’s Northumbrian/German birthday cake. Every year she and Sarah normally share half a special ring cake each but this year Sarah didn’t get hers as I was too ill to make it. Sorry Sarah. So Hettie got a whole one to herself. Although Sarah ate most of it.
Phil decided to don the apron and take on the cake baking challenge in September 2012. He does it every now and then for comedy value. This one actually was really rather nice.
In July and August something called the Olympics happened. No cakes were made during the Olympics, they’re not an Olympic recognised sport yet. YET, I might add, YET….watch this space.
Hurrah, I’ve made it to 2012 (what a year) and it was christened by Hettie’s 5th Birthday rainbow cake. The cake which got the biggest OOOOHHs and AAAAHHHHs ever…
Here’s Millie at her 6th Birthday party with not one but three cakes with a zoo theme…
