Like a lot of people, I started making & decorating cakes for my daughter's birthdays. Her first birthday cake looked a mess but I was so proud of it & it tasted delicious! The more cakes I make, the more I love it & want to make more. I am a very proud hobby baker and these are my cakes
Mr Strong, Mr Bump & Little Miss Sunshine in fondant. For my daughter, Caoimhe's birthday. Cakes were chocolate sponge with chocolate ganache & lemon sponge with homemade lemon curd, raspberry jam & lemon buttercream.
Salted caramel drippy wedding cake for my beautiful friend, Francesca! All decorations were handmade by me & edible. Bottom tier was double layer chocolate biscuit cake & top tier was salted caramel sponge filled with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream surrounded by salted caramel popcorn.
Clodagh's 3rd Birthday Cake! Fun, fun & more fun... although placing those M&Ms was NOT fun!!! 4 hours to put those on the cakes. Top round is choc cake & bottom is carrot cake. All covered in vanilla buttercream. Was thrilled how my "marbled" fondant came out for the cake board. Looked just like a watercolour painting.
