We had a team meeting at work and I decided to make cake with faces-afterall it’s all about people. So to celebrate I made 30 faces in the brand colours. It certainly was interesting seeing people select their cake! Behind the faces was carrot cake with cream cheese icing.

14th birthday party training event

A contact through Brentwood School asked me to host her daughter’s 14th birthday party at her house. I haven’t done one of these parties before so thought it would be a great opportunity!

I made the birthday girl some cupcakes of her own and also as a demonstration tool.  Once again the winning cupcake was given a little prize, this time a swirly looking cat!

I think the girls enjoyed it, it’s difficult to tell….

90th birthday cake – gardening theme

Phil’s grandad turned 90 in January but he wasn’t well enough to celebrate his birthday so it was postponed until April.  So we all went over to a pub in Essex to celebrate.  Irene made a fruit cake for me to decorate and we agreed on his love of gardening and growing vegetables.  He’s also got a little pond in his garden, although perhaps this one is a bit too like a mini swimming pool.

One day I might learn about scale but for now I’ll keep making giant vegetables and ladybirds!

I also have to pay tribute to Jo at Icing on the cake for giving me lots of inspiration and ideas for this cake!

Baby shower cupcakes

A friend from work who has left to go on maternity leave got a selection of cupcakes in the logo colours! Lemon cake with lemon buttercream

A few hand made teddies and cut out shapes in baby motifs.

I didn’t notice but when the cutter of the baby came out it looks just like the fairy liquid baby!
