Special Occasion cakes
‘Fuzzy’ teddy bears made as a topper for a wedding cake.
The teddy bears could easily be adapted for a child’s birthday cake or a Christening cake.
The bears are made from sugar modelling paste so could be eaten if desired!
Thank you! The teddy bears were a great success. They looked lovely on the cake.
Bunny Christening Cake – a clean, modern design.
Lemon cake with lemon curd and lemon buttercream filling covered with sugarpaste.
The bunny was handmade from sugar modelling paste. Piped details in royal icing.
It was delicious! Thanks very much. Everyone was admiring the bunny too.
3 tier rich fruit cake with marzipan and sugarpaste with bow and streamers made from sugar modelling paste. Edible lustre dust was used to create a shimmer on the bow and stars. I was given a free hand in the design of this cake – just a colour scheme.
This cake could be made with a sponge cake and with more or fewer tiers depending on the number of portions required. Any colour scheme may be chosen or the cake may be adapted for a wedding. A single tier with a bow would make a beautiful cake for a smaller party.

A very special Birthday Cake to celebrate the 18th Birthday of Nippers Nursery. Their crab logo was a key element of the cake design with smaller nipper crabs to represent the children. Lots of other undersea creatures were added and also shells which were hand-painted in slightly brighter tones than the Undersea Wedding Cake I recently made. All the decorations were edible.
The three tiers were vanilla with raspberry and vanilla filling, chocolate with rich chocolate buttercream and lemon with lemon curd and buttercream.

Wedding Cake topper for a couple who are both pheasant farmers.
The bride’s mother wanted to make her cake, but the bride was looking for a really special cake topper as a surprise for her husband. They had received an engagement card with pheasants wearing a top hat and cane and a diamond ring.
Sugar modelling paste hand-painted with gel food colours.
It really looked fantastic and my husband was so suprised to see the pheasants.
I was given little guidance other than that the logo was very important to them and should be prominently displayed. I decided on a happy, garden theme as it was summer and to include small models of a range of pre-school toys.
Vanilla madeira cake with raspberry jam, vanilla buttercream and sugarpaste. All toys are made from sugar modelling paste. The logo was hand-drawn onto rice paper on a sugarpaste plaque.
