Ian’s fish tank

My lovely neighbour Ian was celebrating a significant birthday in December 2011 with a fish tank cake. He keeps tropical fish. That’s why.

Millie turns 5

I can’t believe it’s such a long time since I did any posting! Millie’s birthday seems like such a long time ago.  Millie decided she would have a Cowgirls and Cowboys theme this year (I can’t tell you what a mad dash it was to get straw bales in time!) which I thought was a great theme.

Of course it was all inspired by the latest Pixar animation, Toy Story 3 which we had already seen and Millie’s fondness for Jessie continues.  So, a Jessie cake was made. Happy Birthday Millie.

Wedding tester Breakfast at Tiffany’s

This is the lovely Sian and James who came to see us a couple of of months ago for lunch.  Sian and I used to work together and she’s asked me to have a go at making her a wedding taster box.   She’s having a wonderfully 50s inspired ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’ wedding which is so classic and stylish. I had a go at a few designs and she took the cakes away to think over what she preferred the best.

It was a lovely box to do and Sian gave me lots of inspiration to think about as well as doing some research myself.  I think the simplest bows work best although I think they might have to be thinner and more delicate.  The single black strap with a diamonte clasp was a favourite but of couse the diamonte isn’t edible!  I did buy some edible diamonds and used them but I didn’t think they were very successful.

Hopefully I’ll find out in the next few weeks whether she’d like me to make her cakes and which designs she selects. Very exciting!

Eva’s London cake

Our lovely neighbour and friend Eva left to go back to Malaysia the other weekend so Amy threw her a big party.

I made her a cake with London landmarks on it to remind her of her time here.  I was going to make her a big cat cake but thought that was too mean.

(She REALLY hates cats!)
