When Heidi ordered a Queen themed cake for her husband’s 40th there was just one image that popped into my head and no matter how many other designs I contemplated this was the one that I kept coming back to. Freddie, centre stage in his iconic yellow jacket, over a white vest and white military trousers. Freddie was sculpted from modelling chocolate (another first for me!) with sugarpaste head, hands and clothes, and hand painted detailing. The cake itself (8" triple layer choc) was left deliberately plain, but I did give it a coat of edible lacquer to give it a bit of showbiz pizzazz. I hope Freddie would have approved. It was lovely to spend a bit of time with him and rediscover his music again. Happy Birthday Matthew. Don’t stop me now, I’m having such a good time… ;)

Thank you for looking :) x
