Here is a lego topped wedding cake that I made this summer, bizarrely I’ve never used a lego topper before and in August I did 2 in the one weekend! Lovely Wedding Lee and Marika, thanks for including us in your special day. xxx

Here is my entry for the school bake off. It didn’t get placed, but it did sell out first so not a complete flop!

I used powdered pink lemonade to flavour it, and its lemon icing and spinkled silver stars. It’s hard to tell from the photos but the layers are alternating dark and light pink.

There was a bake off at school towards the end of last term. Here is Oscar’s entry. I can’t help thinking he lost marks as nobody knew what a race meeting looked like, the cake even features Karen with her sunnies on! I was very proud of him.

So today is *actually* Friday! Did you spot the deliberate mistake on Monday?

Today’s cake was inspired by a picture that my lovely friend Emma posted on facebook. It was one of those meme things so I have no clue who to credit it to.

I used minstrels, chocolate buttons, chocolate sprinkles and some wierd aero things that were kind of like malteasers. It’s not quite like the pic, but not I think a total pinterest fail!

(See my *new* sparkly worktop!)

I’m actually setting up a few posts today, because we’ve been doing loads but somehow I never get to posting anymore, if all goes to plan you’ll be back to posts on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays! We shall see, I might be interrupted with some form of general household emergency…. you know the ones… “Mummy, need potty!”, “That’s mine! Give it back!”, “Oops, it smashed!”….

Anyway so the first is the frozen cake I did earlier in the month. I’m a bit disappointed in the photos, but the customer was so happy with the cake so I guess that’s what counts. She supplied the figures.

First was the snowflake piping fun…

I used greasproof paper with printed snowflakes underneath as a guide.

Unfortunately they didn’t all peel off the paper very well!

When I decided to do a tea party theme for Miss Emily’s birthday I was a bit (okay, very) conficted on what to make for the cake. I decided on a teapot (and a few times wished I hadn’t). I know I know, another rubbish picture. I will do better, I promise!

The fun started when the ball/hemisphere tin I hired wasn’t actually a hemisphere. The upshot was that to make a teapot shape the cake had to have a left and a right hemisphere as oposed to north and south!

We join the ‘build’ there…

Then for the handle and spout… This is the first time I tried doing the rice crispie treats thing. I ended up part forming, freezing for 20 minutes, moulding a bit, back in the freezer etc… I actually made 2 sets just in case.

It worked out okay though… (I wont mention the HUGE dowels that worked as scaffolding to hold up the handle and spout – you can see one of them in the handle picture below.)

Yes at this point, the glass is structurally integral! Fortunately by the next morning I managed to move the glass without the soput falling off!
