Roses with Butterflies 90th Birthday Cake

Last weekend it was my Nans 90th Birthday and we had huge family party to celebrate. I had the real pleasure of creating the cake especially for my Nan. She had asked for a fruit cake with a candle she could blow out. The cake I created was in a dusky pink and purple theme with added hints of gold…

The colours I used gave a real vintage feel to the cake, and I loved combining the dusky pink with the gold. The cake itself was a 10 inch fruit cake covered firstly in marzipan and then in white icing / fondant. The roses, hydrangeas and butterflies were all hand made out of gumpaste.

One of my favourite things about this cake was the candles. I had been looking for some nice large ’90′ candles which would really compliment the cakes. I was so happy when these arrived. I brought them from Janina hand made candles and they really were fantastic. They were completely covered in gold glitter and looked lovely poking out from behind the flowers. Because of the gold the candles brought to the cake I added the gold ribbon and also painted one of the butterlfies gold to tie it all together.

I was so happy with how the cake turned out and we had a lovely time celebrating with my Nan on her birthday.

Gerbera Flower Video Tutorial

A new video tutorial! Firstly I am so sorry for the delay in getting a new video out, but I really hope you enjoy this. I have had so much great feedback on some of the flower tutorials that I have created that I thought I would do one that was slightly simpler. There are no wires, so as soon as this flower has hardened ir can be placed on your cakes. The flowers are gerberas, these are such fun flowers to make and I really think they brighten any cake. I have made them in different colours and sizes so I really hope you enjoy the video.

Calla Lily Video Tutorial

Happy New Year! I hope you are all having a great start to 2015.

For my first video tutorial of this year I thought I would create another gumpaste flower video as people have been asking for more flower tutorials. This time I have chosen to go with the calla lily. I love how these look when they are put together on a cake, they are really pretty, and have quite a traditional feel to them. When making them they are quite simple to make in the fact that there are only have 2 parts to the flower, so I really hope you enjoy the video.

I really hope you like this video. If you do please subscribe to my YouTube channel. Also I would love to hear what you think, if you have any comments or questions please just let me know.
