Cinderella goes Boxing...

Well not exactly! I haven't had a whole lot of time lately, so these two have had to wait.
Cinderella was VERY last minute (wednesday for saturday!) so thank goodness my hubby is an artist. Cinderella was put together like a layered jigsaw, then he painted her face.

The Boxing Gloves were very simple to make though. Took an oblong cake made in a roasting tin and cut it in half. Then carved the gloves. Covered with red sugarpaste and voila!

Next up I have a tractor, then a giant cupcake (Mmmmm...cupcake)

Practise wedding cake

This was one I did to practice AND hopefully use to help publisize (sp?) the fact I can do wedding cakes! I mean so far, I've got one booking for next year. So I think this will be my "poster girl" for the leaftlets I'm planning on getting designed and printed soon... I was also trying out these edible diamonds. I have to say I don't like the big size. I just feel they look a bit tacky? Maybe its just me, but will see if the smaller size look better!

VW Campervan

This seemed alot more work that it may look! I reckon I spent about 2 hours decorating this. Its all the little fiddly bits, cutting out the windows, matching them up on both sides, headlights, number plate...etc...
I think if I did another one it needs to be less wide and a bit higher.

I decided to take some photos of the actual process last week when I made this cake for twins, who were getting West Highland Terrier puppies for their birthday.

Whats to come

I hope this blog will be a place to record my creations and at least a few details of how they were made. We'll see how in-depth I feel like being as I go along. As for what to expect, well in terms of cakes on order, I have a VW campercan cake coming up on October 9th. Hoping that will be a fun one to do.
In terms of experimentation, I have plans to construct a 3 tier wedding cake, so that I can take some lovely photos and use it on flyers I want to get designed and printed (professionally) in the near future to promote my business more. Obviously getting wedding cake orders is something I am looking for more of. I have only secured one so far for next year.
