2018: That Was The Year That Was

This post may be a little delayed. I had every intention of sharing this with you on New Year’s Eve as a way to wrap up the year but let’s be honest with each other, I was far too distracted by spending time with my family and friends, and you were probably off having fun too. Now that we are … Read More

Pink Floyd Birthday Cake

I couldn’t resist sharing a photo or two of this cake with you. When my Mum asked me if I’d make a cake for her lovely partner’s 65th Birthday we knew that it would have to go in one of two directions; either his love of trains, or his love of Pink Floyd. Feeling far more confident with the latter … Read More

This Morning Live 2018

I had so much fun at This Morning Live at the NEC on Sunday that I needed a good couple of days off to recover! Phew. Now that I am human again, let’s recap on a wonderful whirlwind of a day in which I was welcomed once again into the This Morning family. It’s no lie when people tell you … Read More

Bee Brownies

A little bit of fun for you all on a Wednesday! You may have noticed that I’ve been going through a little bit of a Brownie phase of late – I developed a simple store-cupboard recipe for Food Thoughts Cocoa using their rather wonderful Cacao Powder.

A Wedding Cake for Bogart & Bacall

I feel terrible for missing a couple of weeks of my regular Monday blog post – I’ve been swamped over the last few weeks and had every intention of writing over my weekend away with Chris… but I decided that I would rather spend the time with him and have a white wine spritzer. I regret nothing. In lieu of … Read More

If you pick up a copy of the March/April 2018 issue of Cake Decorating Heaven Magazine, you will see that I did not win the title of Cake Decorator of the Year. The award went to the incredible Zoe Clark and just being nominated next to someone so well-known and well-loved has been a pleasure. Thank you to everyone who … Read More

Wedding Cake Wednesday: 100% Vegan Rip Reveal Cake

I couldn’t resist sharing these pictures with you; taken by the incredible photographer Sassy of Assassynation, this is the cake that I made for Adam and Leanne’s Wedding a couple of weeks ago. This isn’t a traditional Wedding Cake Wednesday post where I talk you through the design process from consultation to the finished cake because I have literally nothing … Read More

OSCAR Cookies in Cake Decoration & Sugarcraft Magazine

In honour of the Academy Award nominations, announced yesterday, I have a little treat for you! Back when I was a film student (in the days before SKY bought the rights) my friend and I would stay up all night to watch the Academy Awards ceremony live from Hollywood. We would put on our fanciest frocks, have a drink or … Read More

Work in Progress Wednesday: Pretty Marbling

I am working on a tutorial so pretty that I just had to give you a sneaky peek. You will be able to see the full step-by-step of how to create this stunning marbled effect on any cake (and, indeed, in any colour) in the March/April 2018 issue of Cake Decorating Heaven Magazine. This rather lovely mag has been kind … Read More
