Yesterday sadly I experienced my first major cake disaster since I’ve started baking professionally. I must say it was sad and heart breaking, but I managed. I’ve had mishaps before where I’ve been able to fixed them on the spot. This particular one left me no choice but to start over. I had promised some friends (a couple that I’ve recently met that I would be baking them one of my yummy cakes,the “Rum Pineapple Upside Down cake”). It’s one of my ...

This week I’ve been starting to put together the cake and characters I’ve been working on over the last few weeks. When I build a cake from my imagination I have to listen to the story the characters are telling me, and that sets the scene for the finished cake. My Mother always said I had an over active imagination.But I suppose thats how Authors write books sometimes. They have to let the story tell itself and when it’s done they can “picture” the story. ...
I’ve been sooooooo busy in the last few weeks. Cake pops for a wedding, and I’m starting to work on the characters for the cake I’m planning to enter into my first cake competition. My fingers are starting to dry out already from the delicate shaping of the tiny fondant bits and pieces (must buy some really good hand cream this weekend). I’ve planned out the shape and size of the cake, the catagory section is “A wedding cake of two or more tiers. So I’m goi...
Can’t believe that someone said my Christmas cake wasn’t worth the price I was charging. It really upset me as I had put so much effort into it. People just don’t realise how much hard work and love goes into our cakes….

Also this week I’ve been trying out recipes and icing techniques for Christmas biscuits…yes Christmas seams to arrived early to my kitchen this year! I’m preparing ready for my Craft Stall later in the year and don’t want any nasty surprises with soggy biscuits or the taste not being just right....
Just finished my first car cake and it was a definite time consumer. I enjoyed making it though, the most challenging part of the cake had to be all the detail work. At first i was scared to carve this cake because ive never carved before and i thought of all the horrible things that could happen if i took to much cake off !
