Normally I would be posting a recipe to share with you but today, I’m mixing it up. This week I celebrated a milestone birthday. It’s shocking how time goes so quick. Celebrating 40 years and it has definitely made me reflect on my life. BUT I’m going to talk deeply today. Today the sun is shining and spring is certainly on its way, so let kept it light hearted.
The featured picture was (as I’ve eaten it all) my birthday cake, made by me. 4 deep layers of vanilla sponge, raspberry jam and lactose free vanilla buttercream, making that cake stand 6 inches tall. The flowers are my own creative work too, handmade sugar craft closed peonies. All in my favourite colours, turquoise and claret, with the added sparkle of gold. The leopard print is free hand painted with edible paint. Simple flavours, elegant design.
As well as it being my birthday, I helped two others to celebrate their birthday too, by making two more celebration cakes alongside my own. It is so rewarding to to make someones day so special and that was returned by the wonderful reviews and feedback I received. So not only celebrating my birthday but helping others with my cake creations and celebrating my achievements over the years.
“What an amazing gluten free cake Em made for my husband’s birthday. Totally yummy, and after giving Em a couple of ideas she decorated the cake beautifully. Thoroughly recommend Emmms Cakes and we’ll be going back for more!!!”
“Can I say that Emmm’s Cakes has out done herself once again, I will share at lunch time when this beast of a master pokemon ball will be cut. Thank you so much Em, Owen loves it xxx”
