30th Birthday Cake

1 Comment »

This cake was requested by my client for her friends surprise 30th birthday party. She was very specific. The cake had to be white, with this exact shade of blue, be decorated with dots and also have carnations on it as these are her friend’s favourite flowers.

I was a bit nervous that I would not be able to match up the blues correctly, but I did, and this was the outcome.


Instead of one large carnation on top of the cake, I did 5 smaller ones and clustered them together.

A simple design, but quite lovely. Oh, the cake was Dark Chocolate with Vanilla Bean Buttercream Frosting.

13th Birthday Cake

No Comments »

My daughter turned 13 way back in April, but life has just been too hectic to actually celebrate it properly. However last week she had a *real* disco, and she requested a 2 tier stripey/dotty cake. She told me it had to have purple in it and had to be vanilla sponge with caramel filling.

So this is what I created for her:


I loved it.

She loved it.

I had *so* much fun decorating this cake. Deciding on the different colour purples to use. The thickness of the stripes. The size of the balls. And there was even a surprise element – once it was cut it was purple! Much excitement.

I loved everything about this cake :)
