Beautiful Vintage Cupcakes

 Here are some gorgeous cakes I made for Diane's tea party. Diane loved the cakes and sent me the following message:
"Thanks again for the gorgeous cakes, I cannot stop looking at them. How are we supposed to eat them? They are works of art".

Vintage Pink Rose Cake

A cake for my Mother in Law's birthday. I had a lot of issues with this cake. I was rushing it and wasn't happy with the cake before icing as it didn't seem to be quite level, this was made all the more obvious when it was iced plus there was a bit of stretching to the sugarpaste around the edge. Despite all this the finished product looks good and the Birthday girl loved it. You win some, you lose some! :)

Christmas Cupcakes

Here are some great Christmas cupcakes we made for the lovely people at Clive Christian to wish the girls that work on their fragrance departments a Happy Christmas.

We made these pretty blue, white and pink cakes topped with birds, bows, roses, flowers, chandeliers and bird cages. Did I tell you how much I LOVE vintage cakes. Oh yes, I did!

60th Birthday Vintage Rose Lace Cake

So this weekend was my Mum's surprise Birthday party. Me and my sister have been planning it for months but she threw a spanner in the works by going into labour and giving birth to her baby in the back of her husband's car the night before the event. The party went on without them (sadly) and I made my Mum this pretty vintage style lace rose cake. All went well until after the speech when the cake stand decided to fall apart and the cake dropped onto it's side on the table and head towards the floor. Good job it was caught in the nick of time! It came off relatively unscathed to be honest and friends and family have enjoyed eating it today. So a stressful but enjoyable weekend and a lovely addition to our family, baby George.

Happy 70th Birthday Dad Golf and Gardening Cupcakes

Helen wanted a box of 24 cupcakes for her Dad's 70th Birthday. He's a fan of golf and gardening so we made him this cute box of buttercream grass and "soil" cupcakes with golf flags, seeds & seedlings, trowels, golf balls, bees and flower pots. Helen loved them and sent us this feedback:
"Thank you soooo much for the gorgeous cakes. Dad is made up with them. He thinks they're too good to eat! I agree xx"

Vintage Large Pink Sugarcraft Roses

I'm in love with vintage cakes right now and have always been rubbish at roses. I've had a go but never really had the knowledge or skill needed so I decided to treat myself to a place on a large rose course in Nottingham. I really enjoyed the course and brought home this beautiful pale pink sugar rose. I think it's pretty good for a first attempt - it needs refining and I need more practice but considering that ribbon roses were all I could make until yesterday, I'm thrilled with the results. Now I just need to practice, practice, practice!

Vintage Wedding Cupcakes

As much as I like making novelty cupcakes, they don't really "do it" for me. My heart belongs to these vintage wedding cupcakes that I made for Ben and Justine's wedding in the Lake District. The soft colours, vintage china and bird wrappers work perfectly together. Expect to see a lot more vintage cakes from now on!
