I wish teleporting was real

This week has been mainly taken up with a wedding, a communion and a Christening. The communion was a joint one and cake-wise it was perhaps the biggest cake I’ve made; two 12″ by 9″ deep Victoria sponges with raspberry jam and buttercream put together to make a huge bible to celebrate 12 children all […]

A new home for Alice

It’s been an incredibly busy few weeks, which is good, not a complaint! What I love about the cake making I do, is no two days or weeks are the same. people want such diverse things for their ideal cake I could never get bored; there’s always a new thing to do, a new challenge […]

Busy Busy Week

I keep thinking I’ve had the busiest week ever and then it keeps getting busier! That’s not a complaint. If I’m not busy, I’m skint but this week had me starting at 7.30 and finishing after midnight a couple of times. I think the best way to illustrate how busy is to show you the […]

Phew!

Well, that’s the wedding cake all delivered and set up in one piece and it’s always such a relief! Just need to wait on and hear that the bride and groom were happy now so I can properly relax. The venue was the Hope St Hotel and it’s gorgeous. The room where the ceremony and […]
