Bill's still Rockin'...

Bill is a blues man and I wanted to provide him with a ‘stage’, so kept this 8" zingy lemon cake in simple matt black so the topper would be the star of the show. Literally! Bill was sculpted from modelling chocolate and clothed with sugarpaste. He is playing his favourite ‘Les Paul’ Gibson guitar (an edible image mounted on hand cut flower paste) and sits on a sugarpaste Fender amp. His grandsons, Charlie and Niall (both sculpted from sugarpaste) sit at his feet, playing and clapping along. The font for his name was borrowed from the Gibson logo and hand cut from sugarpaste. This cake travelled 300 miles to north west Wales to meet its namesake – I was very glad it made it intact!

Happy Birthday Bill. You’re way cooler than I will ever be.
