I’ve been taking a break from baking novelty cakes to concentrate on my new business PrintCakes.co.uk (more on that in the previous post), but this cake was for a regular customer and I couldn’t say no. Especially as I had made her daughters 16th and 18th birthday cake, and this new commission was to do her 21st!
The brief was to create a sophisticated New York themed birthday cake for her daughter who was visiting the big apple to buy her dream handbag, the Gucci Marmont!
So before I waffle on forever, here is the cake!
The cake was a 10″ victoria sponge, and the handbag on top was also made from carved cake. The New York Skyline was cut from Squires Kitchen black flower paste using a scalpel knife, following a template I made. The apple was made from rice crispy treats and covered in sugar paste.
I ordered a handbag chain mould for the cake but the bad weather held up the delivery and so I had to make it by hand. This created a great effect, but it took a lot longer to do as each chain link was individually made. They were cut using small circle cutters, then linked together with edible glue. It was also quite delicate as really it should have been left to dry over night, but there just wasn’t time! Once it was finished I dusted it with gold lustre.
Thankfully the customer loved the cake, as did her daughter. I really hope you like it too, let me know what you think!
So it’s freezing! Everyone is feeling the cold and my thoughts could not be further away from from sipping delicious cocktails by the pool. That was until I received an order for these little rays of sunshine! Cocktail themed cupcakes for a party… believe me when I say these photos will transport you to that sun drenched far away location you dream of in an instant!

Cupcake towers look stunning at weddings and can be tailored to any taste, theme or whim! For a New Years Eve Baked created a 40s inspired Cupcake tower with matching 6″ cutting cake. The cupcakes were done in black and ivory with alternating wedding dress and suit decorations.
The cupcakes created a beautiful tower, the 6″ cutting cake was covered in embossed icing with a sugar flower.

It’s that time of year again and I’ve been getting very excited about Christmas for weeks, and now it’s just around the corner.

This Christmas cupcake bouquet is made up of 7 red and gold rose cupcakes and 6 mini red rose cupcakes with sparkling snowflakes. At £25, the bouquet comes wrapped with ribbons and a bow making a truly stunning Christmas gift. The bouquet would also make a beautiful centre piece for a Christmas table, just make sure you’re guest don’t tuck in until they’ve had some turkey!

I let my imagination run wild and I think my dark side took over while I produced these spooky cupcakes!

Take a look and see what you think. These Halloween specials are just £1.50 per cupcake and will be sure to make your ghouls and ghosts smile!
Cucpake 99 Cones have landed at Baked.! Wafer cones are filled with soft sponge, topped with a buttercream swirl, sugar strands and a Cadbury Flake. I had so much fun making this treat and it has a habit of getting people excited! It did take a couple of attempts to get the sponge inside just right (a low oven temperature is the key, otherwise it turns into a Cupcake volcano!) They would be amazing at a childrens party, but let’s not leave the grown ups out who will be just as giddy about them. They would be a bit of a show stopper at a wedding too…
