Cakes from the weekend
This Sleeping Beauty cake is all cake, she's been carved out of sponge and covered bit by bit with sugarpaste. Each colour has been applied in separate pieces as I didn't want to have multi layers of icing, it takes a bit longer to cover a cake in this way, but it means you still only get one layer of sugarpaste, which makes eating the cake more pleasant. Unless of course you like lots of thick icing.
Here's a cake we did for a Colchester United fan, the badge has been made with sugarpaste and the eagle has been piped on with royal icing. This cake turned out to be quite a whopper, without the icing on, it was already 5 inches deep, well it did need to feed up to 30 people.
We also had an order for our popular triple chocolate cake with a box of strawberry cupcakes, and judging by the lovely comment we received, it went down very well indeed.
