sundae cupcakes

Ice cream sundae cupcakes...vanilla sponge topped with chocolate buttercream, fondant and dark chocolate. Oh and sprinkles. And a fondant cherry.

chocolate vanilla layer cake

split layers of chocolate and vanilla sponge, stacked alternatively with chocolate and vanilla buttercream...covered with vanilla buttercream and heart sprinkles.

fruit cake, a practice run

recipe testing for a 12" fruit cake for a wedding cake. think this one is a winner, nicely dense with fruit and not too sweet.

morph cake

chocolate layer cake, filled and covered with chocolate buttercream.

princess cake

Vanilla sponge, filled with raspberry jam and vanilla buttercream.

chocolate and guinness cupcakes

whatever Paul Hollywood may say on the Great British Bake Off, chocolate and Guinness do go together...he has obviously never had these cupcakes...


first attempt at mastering the marvellous just have to get some salt beef underway!

take a bow

chocolate layer cake with chocolate buttercream, doctorates with hand-rolled fondant.

lemons. pink lemonade.

Simple sugar syrup, fresh lemon juice and zest...and a little red food dye. Went sublimely with a dash of gin!
