April 2010. Rachel, my favourite pharmacist, wanted some pharmacy-themed cakes to take into work for her birthday. These were so much fun to do: I couldn’t resist decorating some with ‘Rx’, which is the symbol for prescriptions; especially since her name starts with R.

A morning’s worth of experiments

April 2010. I had a fun morning baking and trying out some of the ideas I had for designs, with my sister. Some worked, some didn’t… here are some of the more successful ones, and a shot of the very messy kitchen table.

Pretty in pink

April 2010. Ruby wanted a princess cake for her 5th birthday. The crowns were as princessy as I felt I could go, and the bright pink raspberry icing, of course: yum!

I couldn’t get a small enough crown cutter in time, so these are modified ivy leaf cutters. I think the gold glitter ‘bling’ and sweet jewels make them though.

A horse is a horse, of course, of course

April 2010. Equestrian-themed cakes for Camilla’s Grand National hen party.
