March 1st- Website goes live!

After editing, tinkering and applying the finishing touches for over 2 months, I finally felt ready to go live! I am in no way a technological whizz kid, nor do I really know the first thing about making a website, but here I am... and I am pretty proud of my efforts. So if you haven't yet had a look around please browse at leisure through all my cakes and cupcakes and cookies, a big cup of tea and a small snack may be needed to stop you getting too hungry! 

Chocolate and Mermaids...

My first order of the month was for a lovely ladies 21st birthday. This was a special order, as just three short years ago I was making her 18th birthday cake! I love following clients through their lives and being there to help them celebrate all their special occasions. This cake order was also a lot of fun, as it involved 3 of my favourite things- chocolate, cookie dough and mermaids! A 3 layer moist chocolate cake sandwiched together with cookie dough buttercream and dripping with chocolate ganache... drooling yet?! 

Accompanying the cake was some very fabulous mermaid cupcakes. A Disney girl at heart, Little Mermaid has been my favourite for many many years and I like to think of myself as a bit of an Ariel! I love how big the mermaid theme is at the moment and was very excited to have an excuse to unleash my inner mermaid upon my cakes! 

 

Nutella, Nutella, Nutella...

Nutella is one of the great loves of my life. On toast, on a spoon and especially in cakes. This decadent delight is a chocolate lovers dream. Moist chocolate sponge, nutella ganache, chocolate buttercream, ferrero rocher, hazelnuts... the list of delights goes on! I will never grow tired of making this masterpiece!

Golfing into retirement...

One of the things I love about doing bespoke cakes is just how personalised they can be. This cake would make little sense to anyone else. But for the lovely lady who was retiring to Anglesey, to relax by the coast and play golf, it was perfect! 

 

Ice Cream, You Scream...

Having complete free reign on a cake is pure joy for me. It is where my childish, bright and sweet filled imagination can run wild. This cake, created for my best friends 25th, was brilliantly bright, cheeky and childish and certainly a sweet treat. Beneath the hundreds of hundreds and thousands was a cherry bakewell cake and the top tier dripping with hot pink ganache, was a heavenly raspberry, white chocolate and pistachio cake. 

So now we are in April already! The sky is currently, for once, very very blue and the hope of Spring, sunshine and blossom has finally returned. With a month of engagement cakes and wedding cakes ahead, love is definitely in the air!
