This is the cake in all its glory ! Everything is handmade , and as you can see I have used gold on the cake but I also hand painted the cake in a dusky pink water colour. I wanted it to look more antique looking and have more of a vintage feel.i hope you all like it would be great to here your comments.

I made these meringues with the kids yesterday and they loved piping and mixing the meringue I luv seeing my children's faces light up when they bake .meringues are so easy to do and they taste so good with flavourings like, cocoa, lemon, raspberry, elderflower, blueberry the list goes on.Or try and sprinkle some textures like coconut, pistachio, they dont only taste delicous but look good too on meringues .

Hi this is the final wedding cake in all its glory I hope you all like.i work with alot of gold and it can be very tricky because flickers of dust sometimes go onto the cake making a stain .I use a clean brush and some water to brush of the mark and pat dry with a clean cloth.i am going to be doing a video on gold leaf on how to apply it because I get asked so much on how to apply it to a cake so look out on here for it .

These party cupcakes I hope you all like, had done for a customer she wanted something different so I came up with these underneath there is a lemon and pistachio and white choc sponge with a raspberry mousseline cream.all the decorations are all handmade and yes she loves gold and these cupcake cases just set them off beautifully. That day I had to make 80 so you can imagine I was so tired lol...
I hope you all like these cherrybomb cupcakes, recipe I will be putting with these on here soon.these gold cupcake cases were from a freind I think they just look so sophisticated and beatiful with the cupcakes sitting in them.if you look closely I made a handmade bird to go on top of some of them , then some fresh cherry to give sime bite and some coconut on some of the buttercream to add texture.i think these might look simple but I got to say these are one of my favorite cupcake collections .
This Gold budha cake was made for a celeb so I was very excited , jade ewen from the sugar babes we had chatted and she asked me if I could make her boyfriend's birthday cake and of course I said yes .And she needed one quite quickly I had 5 days to make this cake it was a challenge and sleepless nights making the gold budha in 3d .jade was so supprised that in that time I made it in 3d.jade and her boyfriend luv budha figures so her heart was on that.she wanted a plain vanilla sponge filled with jam and cream .taking this cake down to london at the Mayfair hotel to deliver I was so nervous because the budha was so heavy but I made it there was nothing wrong and she and her boyfriend were over the moon I hope I can make many more cakes for jade in the future.

I was really expecting a lot from this wedding fayre and the set up when i got there was a room on its own like an office but with a big glass sliding door at the front and a big large white table for me to put my wedding cakes on i have got to admit i was disapointed there were all split rooms with people showing differn't items wedding dresses ,photography,etc i had got my tasters all ready my cards and everything looked so pretty but i think the room was a let down but to top it there was no one really who came to this wedding fayre i had a few customers who i talked too and loved my cakes and took some cards and cake but the lady who was the organiser didnt seem that bothered she made her appologies and she said she had done loads of advertising but she said she found this market very hard one to takle it hasn't put me of wedding fayres but it has made me more cautious of where i go next time ! i am wanting to take my cakes to a wedding cake internantional show in london or birmingham where you know you will have plenty of people coming through those doors and who will see your cakes and you are guranteed some customers who want to follow you and make orders ,i have only been making cakes seriously from the start of 2012 and i love my job cakes is my world .
Advice on wedding fayres ,make sure you take some tasters for customers to taste ,have a banner displaying your work and name,and all your details of your website ,phone number ,blog,twitter,etc
make sure you dont sit behind a desk and hide stand up and always greet people,don't put yourself on people your cakes should say it all,have cards at hand for people to take them so they can stay in touch.and i think talking and listening to your customers is so important especially when it is there big day .
