Candy Land party

Candy Land party

Last week Grace turned 10. I’m not sure how my ‘baby’ reached double figures quite so quickly, but it appears she has suddenly transformed into a lovely grown-up little lady right in front of our eyes! She decided this year that she wanted a Candy Land themed birthday party so I immediately headed over to...
Patchwork owl birthday cake

Patchwork owl birthday cake

In February my ‘baby’ was 6 years old. Where on earth does the time go?! At the moment she is owl obsessed. She has owls on her bedroom walls, an owl cushion on her rocking chair, owl fabric for her blinds and various other little owl toys and decorations. So, it wasn’t a huge surprise...
The Birthday Lion

The Birthday Lion

At the beginning of the month it was Dale’s birthday. A few days before, the girls asked him what he would like for his birthday. He told them that he would really like a lie in. So, the big day arrived and Faith bounced in excitedly first thing in the morning. After wishing her Daddy...
Lego birthday cake

Lego birthday cake

I love getting new cake commissions because it almost always means I get to try out something new. I was very excited when a friend asked me to create a Lego themed cake for her son’s 7th birthday last weekend. She came up with the fantastic idea of making it into a number 7 and...

Cakes and Bakes of 2011

Wow, I can’t believe it is 2012 already! Happy New Year everyone! Last year I had a busy time baking – I didn’t realise how many cakes I had baked until I started to put together this collage so I have just picked some of my favourite ones. I was delighted to make the cake...
Mad Hatter's Tea Party

Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

I love a good theme for a party so I was very excited when my sister chose to have a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party for my niece’s 1st birthday – what a great theme! In true party style, we all had to wear a hat and I discovered that it is amazing what you can...
Xbox Birthday Cake

Xbox Birthday Cake

Yesterday was Dale’s birthday and no celebration is complete without a cake. Those of you who know my other half will know that there was one obvious cake choice… Despite the fact I’m not a great Xbox fan myself, I really enjoyed making this cake (although shaping the controller was a little tricky). I learnt...

Billy The Bear Birthday Cake

Last year I made a rabbit shaped cake for Tegan’s birthday so I was delighted when her Mum came back to me this year and asked if I’d make another cake for her. This time Tegan wanted a cake in the shape of her favourite toy – Billy The Bear! I was sent a photo...

As well as getting ready for Christmas, I have several family members who have their birthdays in December (very inconsiderate of them!) so I have birthday presents as well as Christmas presents to sort out. My mother in law’s birthday is Christmas Eve but¬†because¬†she is usually at work then, we go round and have a...

Happy Birthday Grace!

Wow, how time flies! I cannot believe that my little girl is now 6 years old. I also can’t believe how much she’s changed over the years and what a beautiful, clever, kind, caring and confident child she has grown into. Here’s my little girl growing up… Happy Birthday Grace! We’re all very proud of...

Birthday in the big smoke

A couple of weeks ago it was my birthday. I won’t reveal how old I am, after all, a lady never tells her age, but let’s just say I’m definitely the wrong side of thirty! Our plans for a quiet hotel break using our Tesco Clubcard vouchers were scuppered when I allegedly left it too...

Who makes your birthday cake?

A while ago I was tagged by the lovely Julie at Ice Maiden Cakes, who posed the question to fellow cake makers “Who makes your birthday cake?” Baking has long been a tradition in our family with my Mum, Grandma and Great Grandma all being fabulous bakers and that is certainly where I got my...
