Gruffalo for Louie

Lucky Louie had a Gruffalo cake for his birthday and it was nearly as big as him! I just forgot about the knobbly knees but he had everything else a Gruffalo should have. This was also a bit of an engineering trial but I’m glad to report that his head stayed firmly in place until the appropriate moment of cutting the cake. Phew!

Updating the blog at last: some from the archives

I’ve long been meaning to update the blog with more cake pictures so finally, I have a chance to do this today.

So, looking back through the archives, I don’t think you’ve seen Snakes on a Cake! I think this was for Gilbert’s birthday (or it could have been Edgar, sorry boys!)

Snakes on a cakeSorry about the bad photo, my camera man is a bit unreliable sometimes!

 

And a few more of Jenny’s mum’s cake as it was quite nice!

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!)

This is the O2 (not a bridge EVA!), london bus, taxi, Gherkin and pigeon

Policeman, crown jewels, big ben, phone box, union jack, underground and GLA building

Eva and her Aunty Amy

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!

5th birthday – horses

Fleur was 5 this week and had a birthday party on Saturday with a horse theme.  My good friend and neighbour Wendy (who has been a bit of a regular addition to sugar paste evenings) once again came to my rescue with her insider knowlege of horses and ponies.   I thought these were really lovely and am really grateful for all Wendy’s hard work.
