We've added a new cupcake flavour to our varieties, the Bakewell cupcake, inspired by cherry bakewells. It has that all important almondy flavour with raspberry jam and coated in icing and a glace cherry. If you love cherry bakewells you'll love these new cupcakes. They contain almond extract so nut allergy sufferers will miss out I'm afraid.

I had great fun creating all these Moshi Monsters for this cake, I had heard of Moshi Monsters before but didn't realise there were so many of them, here we have Mini Ben, McNulty, Mr Snoodle, White Fang, Oddie and Jeepers. They're all made out of sugarpaste and completely edible, as long as you enjoy eating sugarpaste.
Here's a cake featuring characters from Shrek, Puss In Boots was the favourite so I put him more in the forefront, and look, he's gone and scratched the birthday message into the cake with his sword! Again they have been made from sugarpaste but kept flat to the surface of the cake.
This In The Night Garden cake is done in a similar way, with the characters kept flat, it was a bit of a squeeze getting all of them on there. I decorated the bottom of the cake with a leaf border and lots of little flowers.
A novelty cake of someone's boat complete with a model of their dog.
And keeping with the sailing theme, here's a wedding cake we did featuring sailboats, this was a three tier fruit cake and very heavy it was too, good job Jay was carrying it and not me, I took the models.
And to finish off, we have a cake bite tower cake. The 'cake' part is actually cake dummies and it was used to display the cake bites, but I think a chocolate cake covered in cake bites would be just as good.

This Union Jack cake was donated by us for a Jubilee event and it was being auctioned off to raise money for Help for Heroes, we were glad to hear that it went for £60 and we hope the purchasers of this cake are tucking in and enjoying it. We were busy with other cake orders over the weekend including various cupcake orders, and here are some of the cakes we did.
Here's a birthday cake we did featuring the main characters from In the Night Garden.
A scrummy triple chocolate cake.
And a small selection of some of the cupcakes we made. We hope everyone had a good long weekend and enjoyed that extra bank holiday, shame about the good old british weather!

Well it's been a while since I've blogged again......oops, I said I wasn't going to leave such a gap but we've been so busy. We did our first wedding fayre at the weekend and we had a very good time and gave out lots of sample cakes and met lots of lovely people, even got some wedding cake orders, so I guess we did a good job. Our cake bites went down very well too, some of the comments we got were 'I'm in heaven', 'it's like a party in my mouth', and 'amazing', we sell them as wedding favours and they are very scrummy.
Anyway, I'll keep things brief and leave you with a selection of pictures of some cakes we've been making since the last blog post.
I said we'd been busy, and that's not including the cupcake orders we've had go out!

These are some baby shower cupcakes we did a couple of weeks ago, they are vanilla cupcakes with multi coloured sprinkles and handmade sugarpaste decorations. The decorations are little prams, bibs, baby grows and teddy bears in shades of pink, blue, lilac, yellow and green.
A hand painted decorated cake this time featuring a chihuahua. I use Sugarflair food colouring pastes which are great for painting with, I use them in the same way as painting with water colour paints.
Another celebration cake, this time simply decorated with red hearts, piped beading and a crimped pattern edging.

This celebration cake features Spongebob and Squidward Tentacles, they've both been made out of sugarpaste and the cake has been decorated with piped details such as coral, water bubbles and flower shapes. A shell border pattern has been added to the bottom of the covered board using a modelling tool.
