Our 2015 Cakes Restrospective

I simply can’t believe another year has flown by so damn fast. I had all these grand plans and we have only managed to achieve a fraction of them, which leaves plenty of scope for more stuff in 2016. Our 2015 cakes though were fricking awesome and we are lucky to have some fantastic clients who let us create … Read More

The Making of the Millennium Falcon Cake

We have done several Millennium Falcon cakes over the years – some for birthdays, the odd one for weddings – and it is quite clear the enthusiasm for Star Wars remains as strong as ever.

Graffiti art is as brilliant as it is subversive and has gained momentum in prominent years with works by the likes of Banksy popping up all over the place. Many of the buildings in the colourful North Laine of Brighton, where we are based, have their walls scrawled with beautiful and intricate artwork. Of course, like many other … Read More

3D Westie Dog Cake

posted in: Celebration Cakes | 0

This 3D Westie dog cake was constructed over three days – a day to bake, time to carve into shape, rest and then finally to cover and add in all the salient details. It was made out of chocolate cake and every part of it is edible though there is some internal structure holding it up and supporting … Read More

Now as we are based in the fair city of Brighton and absolutely LOVE it it was only a matter of time before we got asked to turn some of the city’s famous landmarks into cake.

posted in: Celebration Cakes | 0

  This Brighton Pier cake was created for a client recently who wanted to have a Brighton-themed cake for her daughter’s 21st and what better way to have a Brighton Cake than a representation of the iconic Brighton Pier.

The great British baking revival continues apace in 2013 with more and more people making cakes than ever before. With so much renewed interest in baking comes a renewed interest in taste as well.

This cake has got to rank as one of my favourite cakes to have done. It is a three tier wonky Alice in Wonderland-themed cake for a three-year-old’s birthday party. All the tiers are gluten, wheat and dairy free lemon cake which goes to show with a bit of planning the same kind of fabulous cakes can be … Read More

Fender Stratocaster Guitar Cake

posted in: Celebration Cakes | 0

Last week I was asked to make a copy of a Fender Stratocaster for a 40th birthday cake and this is the result. The cake itself was a very sophisticated coffee and walnut using real espresso – not a flavour I have done much recently but I had forgotten how nice it tastes. The body of the guitar … Read More

Celebration Generation – Evil Cake Overlord is a Must Read

I find my cake inspiration all over the place and on both sides of the Atlantic, drawing from a wealth of blogs, books and video clips.
