All you need is love!

This cake was based on a Choccywoccydoodah creation but with a "Yellow Submarine" twist. The design featured lots of handpainting and bright colours with a touch of vinyl.

And for those who prefer something savoury, we also created a cheese cake with a selection of chutney's and biscuit.
