Teddy Bear's Picnic Christening Cake

Usually christening cakes are blue for a boy and pink for a girl, but not this one! This was for Darcie's christening, and she was having a Teddy Bear's Picnic theme. Her mum asked for the bears and picnic to be in chocolates and cream colours, so here is the finished cake!

All the bears are handmade from fondant. They are such fun to make!

We had a disaster during the delivery. Just as I was about to knock on the front door, a gust of wind blew the lid off the cake box, and it knocked the littlest bear off the top of the cake! Luckily he hadn't left a mark on the cake, but he suffered broken legs in the accident :-( 

I hope Darcie had a fabulous christening! xx

Baby Shower Cake

One of my brides from August contacted me and asked if I could make a cake for her friend's baby shower. The mum to be doesn't know whether she's having a boy or a girl, so here's a unisex baby shower cake with one pink bootie and one blue bootie. 

The cake was finished with a border of hearts in alternating blue and pink. 

Best wishes to Nicola for the safe arrival of her lovely bundle of joy xxx

Owl and Hedgehog Themed Birthday and Christening Cake and Cupcakes :)

I was contacted by Joshua's mum who asked if we could make a cake to celebrate Joshua's first birthday and his christening, and she sent me a picture of the invitations and asked if we could incorporate details from these onto the cake. 

Here's the invitation (I think it's called Happitree)...

 And here's the cake!

And some hedgehog cupcakes too :-)

Happy Birthday Joshua! :-) xx

Cloudbabies Cake

This was a cake we created for Sacario's birthday. He is the most gorgeous little boy ever! He loves the Cloudbabies, so we created a two tier cake with the characters on. His mum asked for the tiers to be wonky, as she is a fan of that style of cake, so here's the finished article!

I must confess, I've no idea who or what the Cloudbabies are so I had to spend a bit of time on Google doing some research!! 

There were also some matching cupcakes featuring either rainbows or clouds to go with the cake :)

I hope Sacario had an amazing birthday party :-D xx
