Kickboxing cake

My final cake for this week is for a gentleman who is celebrating his 40th birthday.  The cakes were actually purchased from M&S by my client, and they should feel  ashamed to produce cakes of such a poor standard.  Both cakes had parts of the inner packaging stuck in them and neither of them had straight edges, that is the point that the professional takes over!

I put the bottom cake onto an iced larger board to give the cake more presence and I sprayed and recovered the top tier.  I then built up the sides of the bottom tier so that it had clean straight edges. 

On top of the cake is a hand painted symbol which is Japanese for 40.  Japan is where kickboxing originated from in the 1960's.  Finally  a wonderful company named Wedding Cake Toppers Uk made me a perspex cake  topper in the shape of a pair of kickboxing gloves engraved with 40.  This is the final result:-

SLR Camera

My second cake this week is for a 60th birthday  celebration.

I  had a chance encounter a few months ago with the midwife who saw me through my last three pregnancies, Delia.  I told her that I was now making cakes and she somehow remembered the name of my company and gave me  a call to see if I could come up with anything special for her husband Martin's 60th birthday party in London this weekend.   I usually like to try and find out a bit about the person for whom I am  making the cake and that  then leads me  onto  ideas for what  to make.  In this instance Martin is a keen photographer, and apparently the bigger the lens the better!  Hence  this cake!

Passing Out Cake!

It seems like a long time since I posted anything to my blog, due to my little girl having been very poorly with pneumonia.  Thankfully, she is on the mend now, but not yet back to school, so cake making has not been easy!  None the less I have three cakes to  share with you this week, the first of which is for a gentleman named Private Howard who has his passing out ceremony this weekend.

Watering Can

Myy  final cake for the week is for a friend's parents who are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.  Claire didn't want anything too conventional and her parents both love gardening and that is where the idea of a watering can came from.  It was a VERY challenging cake to make and  I spent hours working on it.  It will be a long time before I take on another cake with a spout or handle!!

Love birds

My second challenge for this week was to come up with a giant cupcake golden wedding anniversary cake that wasn't too gold!  That was when the idea of the love birds  hit me.  I have wanted the chance to make love birds for a while and then I had the idea of sitting them in what looks like a Chinese cherry blossom tree.  I am really please with the finished cake!

It's all going pear shaped!

Oh my goodness, what a shitty day!  My neck has been terrible this week and I have left myself with quite a lot to do, so I got up and got on bright and early this morning.  Everything was OK up to this point, and then it went rapidly down hill.  At aroung 9.30 I went to wash some dishes and there was NO water.  My other (very unpopular) hhalf had ommitted to tell me that it was going off and suggested I ask the builder, which is what I did.  He informed me that he expected it to be off for most of the day, and so that was that and I turned on the taps to eek the last few drops out into my kettle.  At lunch time I went to collect Gracie and when I returned I could hear  my boiler going, which meant only one thing, the water was on.  I had left the kitchen tap open and the overflow couldn't cope with the volume of water,.  Every inch of my kitchen and utility room was flooded.  Not good!!!  Anyway I cleared up and soldiered on to finish my first cake for this week, a christening cake.  The lady whom I made the cake for, Kelly Budd was myy 500th fan when I was Yummy Mummy's and as  a treat she got a free 6" decorated cake which  she put against the cost of the chhristening cakke.  I have already mmailed her the picture and she loves it!

Cascading blossoms wedding cake for a very lovely lady!

Yesterday I finished working on another wedding cake for a lovely lady named Lorraine who is marrying an equally charming gentleman named Alan.  When I was first introduced to them it was with a view to making them a topper for a bought cake, from here we moved onto me making the cakes as well.  As the months have gone by Lorraine has been following my work on Facebook and she loves my work with flowers so we decided to  change the design again and the final cake ended up with a cascade of burgundy blossoms.   I varied the shades of the blossoms as burgundy is such a difficult colour to colour match and can vary greatly.  This is the final result, which they both seemed very happy with and I look forward to being able to post some pics of the actual day.  Have a beautiful day, both of you and enjoy a long and happy life together!

One final note, last  I went out for a wonderful meal with my husband and parents at a beautiful restaurant named Kondi Brasserie in Henzleaze.  The food was incredible as was the service and the ambiance was so relaxing.  It was decorated very simply with some beautiful paintings on the wall and somehow felt very special.  I found it very difficult to  choose from their wonderful menu and will definitely being returning soon for a Sunday roast which also sounded wonderful.  For thoses of you who are interested, this is the link:-

Miniature cakes for a wedding cake tower

Tuesday I finished working on 40 miniature cakes for a wedding cake tower.  They involved a huge amount of work and were baked in 4 different flavours, chocolate truffle with nutella, luscious lemon with lemon curd buttercream, vanilla with strawberry jam and buttercream and finally orange and poppy seed.  Icing cakes this size and achieving a good finish is incredibly time consuming and I dread to think what my hourly rate actually worked out to, but sometimes it's more about the opportunity to create something beautiful and different and very fitting of their venue which is Cotswolds 88.

I am now in the process of icing a two tier fruit wedding cake for a lovely lady named Lorraine who is getting married  this Saturday.

I hope  that all of you have long and happy lives together!

Today is a momentous occasion, all my children are back at school and Grace , who starts school tomorrow, is spending some time with her Auntie Pauline and Nanny Owen to allow me to start to assemble the 40 mini wedding cakes that I need to have ready by tomorrow evening.  It is a huge task, and it has just taken me 3 1/2 hours to base coat them.  Next I need to top coat them and add all the detail!  When I have accomplished that task I need to concentrate on a wedding cake which is needed for next Saturday and after that  i take a deep breath and begin preparing for the two golden wedding and 1 christening cake for the following week.  In between all that I have Libby's birthday Wednesday and Ben and James(my 23 year old twins) birthday on the 18th.

It feels very strange to walk into my lounge and not to find Tracey Beaker or MTV blaring out, and where is the blob that has resided on my sofa with it's feet up for what seems like the last 5 months?

Anyway, time to crack on now!

Disaster averted, just!

Party season is in full swing in our house and I am busy,busy,busy! I worked until midnight last night making a very intricate toadstool cake for my daughter's party this Saturday, and then to my horror, some how the top had detached itself from the bottom.  Not really sure sure what or WHO  was responsible but I have spent this morning patching it back together.  This is the finished cake:-
