Christmas 2012

Here's some more cakes from Christmas this year. I made 3 mini cakes, perfect for individual gifts. Next was a remake of my 2010 polar bear christmas cake. In just 2 years my modelling skills have improved dramatically! And finally, another set of vintage Christmas cupcakes. These were a prize in my works raffle.

Lime & Purple Opulence

These may be my all time favourite set of cupcakes. I love the colours, the quilting, the flowers, the frames... Ella and I made these on our cake decorating weekend. We had so much fun and I am looking forward to making these again in some different colourways, I think hot pink & black would look great!!

Lemon & Duck Egg pretties

My sister & I made these cakes using the candy stripe guide from Carina's cupcakes. They look fab and I'm very proud of my big sisters first attempt at sugarpaste decoration

Christmas Cupcakes 2012

Here are my Christmas cupcakes for this year. A Buttermint snowflake, Santa baby dresses, mini gingerbread house and my Christmas opulence collection with gilded picture frames, holly & festive flowers.

The Princess & the Pea

This is my entry into the SGN Children In Need bake off competition. I won :-) And the cake was auctioned off with all proceeds going to the charity. This years theme was fairytales & nursery rhymes so I decided to make a Princess & the Pea cake. A tall pile of matresses with a little pea hidden underneath!
