Jungle Cakes and a Fabulous Bag

I had a busy couple of days recently, working on cakes for a joint first birthday party. I made two three tiered cakes, each with six handmade jungle animals. I also made some jungle cupcakes and cake pops to match. I'm afraid that the photos are a bit dark as the weather has just been so awful it has been hard to find a good time to take some snaps, particularly with my limited skills. The fact that I finished these cakes at some ungodly hour doesn't help much either!


I have better pictures of the cupcakes, because my friend Jane took them rather than me! Jane is a whizz with a sewing machine, and writes a fantastic blog about the clothes she makes. She also makes fabulous bags, cushions and all sorts of other bits and pieces. I recently asked Jane to make me a new bag to hold the square cardboard boxes I use to transport cupcakes, and she has produced two fantastic bags that are perfect for the job. They have proved invaluable over the last couple of weeks as I have been delivering cakes here, there and everywhere.
Do pop over to Handmade Jane to read more about the bag and Jane's lovely handmade clothes.


  1. Thanks for the mention Lucy, glad the bags are being put to good use! x

  2. These all look rather lovely! I particularly like the hippo but all your models are so well made! :-)
