Fairytale Castle

This enchanting fairytale castle with co-ordinating floral cupcakes was created for a birthday princess! The castle featured sparkly turrets and flowers climbing up the walls. Each cupcake was decorated with handmade, sugarpaste flowers in clean white and pretty pinks. The castle and cupcakes were decorated in pastel hues to keep the design delicate and dainty and were all displayed on a two tier acrylic stand. The cake and cupcakes were rich chocolate sponge, filled with Belgian chocolate ganache.

Beauty Queen

This design was created for a "girly girl" who likes all things beauty and hairdressing. The double height cake featured bags, make-up, brushes and hairdressing equipment all handmade from icing. The design was completed with pink polka dot ribbon to give a modern bright feel to this eighteenth birthday celebration. The cake itself was rich Belgian chocolate cake filled with layers of decadent Belgian chocolate ganache.

Vintage Lace, Fragrant Roses & Pearls


This vintage inspired design in varying hues of cream featured delicate floral, lace and pearl detailing to give an overall feel of period drama. Each tier of the cake was double height in order to add understated impact to the beautiful vintage lace which echoed that of the bridal gown. A string of beautiful Swarovski pearls encircled the bottom tier in order to give a truly elegant, vintage ambiance. Stunning Avalanche and Vandella roses were simply arranged, in order not to detract from their beauty, to encircle the base of the cake and to separate the two tiers. The cake was completed with a posy of Avalanche and Vandella roses to the top tier, which added height and elegance to the completed design. The cake comprised of a Victoria sponge tier filled with raspberry conserve and vanilla buttercream and a zingy lemon sponge tier filled with layers of luxurious lemon curd and buttercream.

Scrabble Cupcakes

These scrabble themed cupcakes were created for a couple who met whilst playing the well known game. Following an initial consultation, the couple decided on the scrabble tile design that was created for them and wanted to include a boxed set of cupcakes that spelt out the word "LOVE". Each cupcake was decorated with a swirl of frosting, topped with a scrabble tile handmade from icing and hand painted to include the relevant letter score for the corresponding letter of the alphabet. The cupcakes themselves were chocolate with a decadent Belgian chocolate ganache topping, zingy lemon cakes with a luscious lemon curd filling and lemon infused buttercream topping and moist, lightly spiced carrot cake with a mascarpone topping and cinnamon sprinkles.

Summer Brights Bride & Groom

This design encapsulated the bright, modern, feel of the wedding theme by combining acid brights and cupcakes with a twist on the traditional bride and groom. The completed display featured an array of cupcakes encased in spring green cases, each decorated with a brightly coloured, handmade gerbera to reflect the bridal bouquet and venue displays. The top tier featured a handmade bride and groom, the happy couples two pet dogs and was accented with a double layered satin bow. The cake was displayed on a stunning seven tier stand which created a striking focal feature at the beautifully decorated venue. The cupcakes were a mix of delicious milk and white chocolate topped with swirls of orange infused frosting - the on-trend orange colour palette being picked up in the flavour of the cakes themselves!
