Fathers day, Baby shower cupcakes, giant cupcake wedding and a very rude hen night cake.

As ever I have been busy baking away for orders, there have been lots of events recently and even though in between I have had time to bake a few things for myself (almond and white chocolate biscotti and tea cake to name a couple) I haven't had the time to upload any of the recipes, but I promise I will blog one of those recipes this week .

In the mean time I thought I'd show you some orders I've had recently.

First I had an order for a wedding at the beginning of June that was for 100 Cupcakes and one giant cupcake. This would be the first giant cupcake I made so I had a practice a few weeks before to get the quantities and timings right but I was very pleased with the end result, here it is.

I was made up with the mould once I'd ironed out a few kinks and quantity stresses. I usually do not like working with silicone moulds, however I think me and silicone have put our differences aside now I can finally confidently produce a cake that comes out cleanly and cooks evenly (after google helped.) Any way the mould was a bargain, reduced to just £1 at a local discount store.

I covered the bottom of the cake in roll out fondant and then iced the top with rose swirls, then filling in any gaps.

Then there was fathers day, my orders for this were much more straight forward:

I had to borrow this photo, as I forgot to take one of the cakes set up.

I also had an order for some baby shower cupcakes in both pink and blue:

For these I made little sugar paste feet, bibs, bottles and Baby signs. I really like the feet and they're super easy to make too.

And lastly I had a very interesting order for a hen night, I actually watched a tutorial of how to shape this cake in the break room in work and got some interesting looks from nosey people trying to see what I was watching. Any way, any children look away now:

I'm not sure I'd be thrilled on receiving such a cake however the  hen party were glad and it was exactly what they wanted. The "hair" is piped with a multi holed nozzle for that real look. It was definitely one of the most interesting orders I've had and everyone I told about it actually couldn't wait to see the finished errr......piece

Any way on that note I think I'll leave it at that and update with new recipes later in the week

until then, bye for now
