Absolutely stunning photography! I'm really looking forward to working with the very talented Portia on a cake shoot for the iced website which is going to see a few changes in the near future!

buttercream frosting, and one tier of zesty lemon drizzle cake filled with lovely lime curd and vanilla buttercream frosting.
Ifan and Karolina also asked me to make lemon cookie favours for their guests using the same pale spruce green colour. Each guest's name was piped on their cookie so that they could double up as place names! Perfect!
I've absolutely loved making Ifan and Karolina's cake and cookies! They have been absolutely lovely to work with! Wishing them a truly fabulous day full of fun and happiness and all of our best wishes for the future!

I don't normally feature birthday cakes on this blog but this one is very special as I made it to celebrate my Nana's 90th birthday at the weekend! We held the lunch / afternoon tea party in the Garden Room / Lounge at the Miskin Manor Hotel - it was a truly special day, celebrating with friends and family.
I was in charge of the cake and I decided on cupcakes both for their sheer prettiness (and also as they were to be served as part of the afternoon tea, for their fabulous ease of distributing). I made three different flavour cupcakes, vanilla filled with raspberry compote and frosted with vanilla buttercream, lemon filled with zingy lemon curd and frosted with vanilla buttercream and chocolate filled and frosted with coconut buttercream (bounty flavour!). Each flavour was decorated slightly differently with open roses, rose buds, flower posies and leaves, sticking to the lovely pink and gold colours of the tables! The cupcakes were then finished with pretty white butterfly cupcake wrappers to complement the favour boxes!

Last Saturday the lovely Kirsten and Gethin were married at the stylish Holm House Hotel in Penarth. Holm House is a beautiful design-focused boutique hotel which has an enviable position overlooking the sea. The wedding breakfast was held in the dining room at Holm House which is adorned with shimmering flock wallpaper from Osborne and Little in lilacs and darker plum purples. I designed the cake in a very pale lilac to complement the decor of the room and decorated it with piped white royal icing beadwork in an abstract feathered design. The cake was then topped with hand moulded loose romantic sugar roses!
Kirsten and Gethin chose moist chocolate fruit cake for the base tier of their cake with the remaining tiers Madagascan vanilla cake filled with raspberry compote and vanilla buttercream. Kirsten's father has a gluten intolerance so we made him special little gluten free versions of the main cake:
