Selfie cake, Castle cake, super pink cakes and lots of cupcakes

Hey!last week was a super busy week for baking it seems like everyone has a birthday in the same week sometimes as I go from having about one cake a week to do to having about 4 to 5 in the odd week as well as going to work too. So at the moment I'm a little tired and having a little break from baking (well three days).

I thought I'd take this time to show you some recent cakes I have made and decorated so here goes :

First of all I was asked to make a cake for a friends niece who loves One Direction, Mac makeup and taking selfies. My friend made some pictures of her, and one of Harry Styles look like Polaroids on the computer and we ordered these to be printed Polaroid size on icing sheets, they came out really well. I also made some makeup out of fondant, and even dusted the fondant make up brush with edible shimmer powder. Lastly I piped on music notes and One Direction lyrics.

Next up is another super pink girly cake, this one with a quilted effect, diamante studs and edible pearls:

Lastly in the super pink cake collection was a cake for a friends recent 30th Birthday. My friend really wants to be a princess so here is her cake:

I think the detail such as the edging round the doors really made this cake!

I have also still be getting lots of orders for cupcakes and have enjoyed making some look super summery now the weather is getting better, such as these with little home made fondant bees.

Lastly for today I also recently made some engagement cupcakes:

Any way that will do for today although I still have a whole file worth of things to add and also to tell you about my new favourite cake to make and eat all to myself. I'll be back with that soon though
