The first three cakes were due for completion on Saturday morning, so Friday night was a very late finish for me. Thankfully I had a friend and a bottle of prosecco to keep me company. First up was a two tier monster cake for a third birthday, followed by an attempt at a Cartier watch face. Pictures of these to follow later
Next up was a lovely, simple black and white cake for a twelth birthday. I don't get many cake orders for this sort of age group, so this was lovely to do. The birthday girl had orginially seen one she liked in Waitrose, but had left it too late to order. I'm pleased to say that in the end she much preferred my version. I'm not sure if anyone ate the black roses or not, but I supsect there will be a few black teeth and lips around if they did!
The last cake of the weekend was for one of my daughter's friends. She wanted a crown on top of something pink and yellow. I was a little nervous about the tiara I made as I had a horrible feeling it would not stand up on its own, or I would break it when removing its drying support. Thankfully, the one small break was easily repaired and it stood up well. I gather the birthday girl was happy, and that's the most important thing!
More pictures to follow later. I'm off to bake some macarons.
