Christmas cake in February..

Hi all,
Sorry I've been away for so long!
Here's a fruit cake I did for my dad for Christmas. It's a simple design and can be done with either marzipan or icing. Or both!
I'm baking a The Fault In Our Stars cake next week so I'll upload that next weekend.

Triple post? I lied.

I said that I was going to do a triple post but actually meant to do a double post. Seeing as I have no cake to present you with, I will just give you some pictures to enjoy. Technically it is now a triple post.
My friends came over this afternoon and we spent it eating Pot Noodle, crisps and chocolate. Oh and we dip dyed my hair... It looks like multicoloured candyfloss. Such a happy colour!

SHERLOCK!

I made a Sherlock cake for Savannah's 17th last week and took it to the party. In hindsight, it was so messy! The seams are just... ew.
I chose to have each side representing something Sherlocky as Savannah is a massive Sherlockian/Cumberbitch..
Anyway, thank you to Savannah for organising an insanely good party :)

SHERLOCK

I did a Sherlock cake last week! However, I cannot find the memory card reader and so the photos are stuck on the camera! Hold on, it will make an appearance soon!

Taking a Break

Hi all,
I haven't been making cakes a while as I jetted off to America in July and spent a month there. Landed a few weeks ago and had a cake request the next day. I will post that in due course but it wasn't one of my best attempts due to being jetlagged and depressed in this grey English weather.
Now that I've got my GCSE results and my mind isn't wandering elsewhere, I'm planning to put together some tutorial videos for baking and cake decorating! Watch this space...

CSI Cake

I've finished my GCSEs! I did my last one yesterday morning and instead of celebrating by getting drunk (which is the apparent 'norm' for people my age) I spent all day on a cake commission. It was for my friend's little sister and she had a CSI themed party today. This cake was so much fun, especially the blood around the victim's body trace! For that and the magnifying 'glass', I boiled up some sugar to hard ball stage and added food dye. The photos don't really show it but there is a piped 'fingerprint' under the magnifying glass. Everything on this cake is edible. The black fondant looks quite grubby, photos were taken before I did a clean up. The magnifying 'glass' has small bubbles in it so it's not fantastically clear.
Enjoy!
P.S. I was so tempted to keep the mini forensic scientist for myself! He's so cute, look at his little face!

Vworp Vworp!

DOCTOOOOR! You've parked your ruddy TARDIS in the middle of my cake!

This was awesome. Yeah. I have to say so myself. I am a huge Whovian and this was so much fun to create! Plus it was the first time I've ever played with Rice Krispie Treats. They are good for moulding, albeit a little heavy - hence the sinking.
The cake itself was sprayed with silver glitter which made my entire kitchen sparkly for days. I wanted to make a huge TARDIS but I realised the stacking issues I would have with the cakes and I didn't want to go down the dowelling route. (Dowelling is an internal structure of sticks called dowels. They prevent everything from collapsing) So I made a huge RKT cake topper and a cake and it all went on from there.
In hindsight, I should have dowelled under the TARDIS because it sank overnight and was leaning horribly. It's not the neatest cake in the world but I was chuffed with it anyway. Plus it tasted pretty darn good as I used my special super moist, super chocolatey and super rich cake recipe.





Hope you like it!
