You can only see it a little … Read More

The Danger of Salted Caramel Millionaire’s Shortbread!

I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to share some of my favourite recipes with you now; when Jason and I sat down to design this new web-space, I asked him to create a recipe template so that I could do this! One of my favourites is still the Salted Caramel Millionaire’s Shortbread that I have been churning out at a … Read More

Welcome Home!

It is with no small amount of pleasure that I welcome you to the new home of Restoration Cake. In my continuing quest for world domination, I’ve gone .com! So much has changed over the last few years that I felt I needed a whole new look and a brand new internet space to reflect this. What’s new? Well, being … Read More

2015: Oh, what a Year!

Vintage Style

Last weekend I delivered another Wedding Cake to Claridge’s Hotel in London.

My couple wanted to reflect a little of Claridge’s … Read More

Royal Icing Piping Class with Ceri DD Griffiths!

My love of cake decorating – which later became my vocation and means of paying my mortgage (!) – led me to take my very first classes back in 2007. I … Read More
