What do you give the man who has everything?

What do you give the man who has everything?
Salli knows - she ordered 6 rugby (union) pitches and 6 Cookie Monsters to make up a cheerful, yet sporty present for her friend's 30th birthday.

How beautiful do this cake toppers look, laid out with their different colours? I'm definitely feeling inspired to do a 'paintbox' box of cakes... Could even do the cakes with rainbow-coloured batter... anyone want to make an order? ;-)

Am I the only one who wants to write, "acieeeeed"? ...Maybe I'm just showing my age.

6 Smiley cakes for Sam's birthday (Gefeliciteerd, Sam). I was really nervous of attempting such an iconic image, but I think they turned out really nicely.

Vanilla cakes and Vanilla Seed buttercream icing.

Zoe's Cakes

6 Chocolate cakes with assorted designs for Zoe.
My favourites are the 'princess' ones - I got the edible glitter out and finally got a chance to experiment with my new crown mini-cutter.

Roses Experiments

May 2010
Chocolate and Banana cakes with Chocolate buttercream (which is waaay too rich)

July 2010
Chocolate cakes with Strawberry buttercream.
Looks more like a snail than a rose.

Septermber 2010.
Vanilla cakes with Vanilla Seed buttercream.
Quite happy with these, but they are still a bit frilly. Delicious though :-)

Just been trying these last few months to ice cakes to look like roses. Not some flouncy flowers, though, but graphic, Alice In Wonderland-type ones.

It's obviously all about the icing nozzle, and I still don't have the right one... Yet another trip to the cake decorating shop, I think.
