cherry blossom birthday cake

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.
