a birthday cake of letters

a 50th birthday cake for a printer, 6" chocolate cake filled and covered with vanilla bean buttercream...covered with fondant and many, many fondant letters!

cherry blossom birthday cake

cherry blossom birthday cake. 6" chocolate cake, filled and covered with vanilla bean buttercream, decorated with fondant and royal icing cheery cherry blossoms!

beehive, honey and lemon cake

a sweet and zesty birthday cake for my mum, 6 layers of honey and lemon cake filled and covered with honey buttercream. yummy.

sprinkles rainbow anniversary cake

vanilla cake, filled with vanilla buttercream and covered with chocolate buttercream...and many, many sprinkles.

covering a cake with sprinkles is actually quite frustrating, but the end result is so fab, though the end result of 100's and 1000's all over the kitchen tops and floor is also quite fun! if you want to attempt this yourself, I do recommend doing the sprinkling over a large bowl to catch the majority of the sprinkles!

and inside the cake...

salted caramel millionaires shortbread...yum. that is all.

a late addition to the blog I know, catching up on my posting and just got to december! last years christmas cake, though it was so large it lasted well into this year! delicious boozy fruit cake, covered with a thin layer of marzipan and the fondant...decorated with fondant and royal icing, design inspired by a trip to fortnum's prior to christmas :)
