So your probably wondering “What’s happened to Scrummmy Friday’s?” Fear not, it will return!

So back to todays cake….

This is a gorgeous vanilla sponge filled with strawberry jam and creamy buttercream. Yummmy!

Colourful Saturday

Once again I have to apologise for my absence from Scrummmy Friday’s.

This week has been one full on week with celebration cakes.

So I thought, seeing as yesterday was ‘Black Friday’ in the UK, I would add a splash of colour today.

Ta Dah… Rainbow cake for twins celebrating their 2nd birthday today!

This is a mammoth 14″ x 10″ vanilla sponge, filled with jam and covered with piped rainbow colour buttercream! Yummm!

Motorbike Helmet Cake

A few weeks back, I was asked if I could make a motorbike 3D helmet cake for a client’s husbands birthday.

Not having done a ‘Skid-lid’ before, I wasn’t sure were to start. I started by ‘googling’ it, but no one had info or step by step guide. So with a little bit of imagination and artistic creation, I started…

I used 3x 10″ sponge, 2x 8″ sponge (1 stacked on top of the 3x 10″ and the other was cut to form the front) and 7″ dome cake and a lot of buttercream!

Here are some photos of how my cake took shape.

Exploding Star Cake

40thstarcake-6800

My version of an exploding cake with stars. I made this for a family member, who though it was amazing.

Underneath the icing and decorations is a classic victoria sponge cake filled with locally sourced strawberry jam and homemade vanilla buttercream.

I had to resist myself from eating it before it made it to my cousin’s!
