Cakes and Cupcakes – Weekly Round-up

christening cake, wedding cake, birthday cake

This week has been super busy with a wide variety of designs and occasions to create cakes and cupcakes for. Read and look at the cakes I have created this week.

Wedding Cake

Everyone loves a good wedding, especially me. It is always such an honour and pleasure making a wedding cake. On Saturday 14th June I created and set up a cupcake tower. This included 120 cupcakes with identical decorations. A classic red rose in the centre of each cupcake on a stunning tiered stand. 60 vanilla sponge and 60 chocolate sponge, all topped with a creamy white chocolate buttercream.

There was a two tier main cake covered in piped swirl/rose buttercream, finished off with a stunning vibrant cascade of red roses with a diamanté pin in the centre of each one to match the brides bouquet. The wedding was set at the picturesque Denton Golf Club and for once the British weather did us proud.

Christening / Birthday Cake

On Sunday I had the privilege of making a colourful three tier christening / first birthday cake. The customer sent me an image of the design and I slightly altered this in keeping with my style. An array of colourful buttons, a large pink bow, butterflies and the ever so popular playing blocks spelling out ‘Phoebe’, made sure that this cake was perfect for the little princess. Set in a stunning venue in Horwich, this cake certainly complimented the tone of the occasion.

Superhero Cake

Finally, one of my other favourites of the week has to be the three tier Superhero cake! Let’s face it, most little boys and men would love this cake. Each tier represented a Superhero with the cape cascading down the side of each tier. This design appears to be well used throughout the cake decorating world, so I was thrilled to give it a go. It meant that I was able to do a bit of hand painting onto a cake which I thoroughly enjoy!

I hope you like my recent work, feel free to make any comments or ask questions. Thank you xx
