Attending my first cake decorating course

Late last year I managed to find a local cake decorating course in my area (Nottingham) and I couldn't wait to sign up! The course filled up pretty quickly but I managed to get a space and it really has opened my eyes to so many more aspects of cake decorating.


My birthday cuppies

So, when you are the cake maker in the family what do you do when it YOUR birthday?? Well, cupcakes are a given and I wanted to make my guests a little something different so I decided on multiple flavours and some amazing toppers to capture the spirit of my era. The 80's.

I love the fact that any image can be put on a cake and these turned out great as my guests stared and practically fought over which cake to have! Check out my flickr for more photos


Birthday pressies!

I am all refreshed and back from a week away in Yorkshire, and as promised here are some photos of all the lovely things I receieved for my 30th birthday. I really do have the best friends and family!

Normal service resumes tomorrow with a few Mother's Day cupcake orders so pictures will be available soon.

And if you haven't gotten your Mother anything yet then hurry up, Mothers should be cherished!


Holidays and birthdays

Well, Monday marks my 30th birthday so I am taking a much needed rest. I am baking up a storm for my party so will post pics as soon as I can but for now - I will have limited access to the internet so I hope to be online again w/c 23 March.

I will leave you with another pic of an order I delivered today. Happy eating x nom nom


Looking for inspiration

It's always hard to come up with new ideas and not get stuck in a cake design rut - I think the baking and decorating side of things has always come easy but I am starting to realise I need a creative director! Luckily lots of lovely people on Flickr and the other blogs are always sharing ideas etc so I just need to keep my eyes open, take it all in and my designs will come.


A lovely little trio

Here is a lovely little trio of vanilla cupcakes I made for a recent order. They specifically asked for pastel colours so I tried to make them all a little different. I did one of my classic cupcake swirls as a basis for the deisgn and topped with edible glitter, sparkles and sprinkles. I also made a white flower from homemade marshmallow fondant and I think it sits well with the pink frosting.

My own birthday party is coming up shortly so I am looking forward to branching out a little and working on designs that push my design boundaries! Wish me luck!
