Hope you’re spending your weekend eating hot cross buns, wearing bunny ears and hanging with your favourite people. I’ve been preparing for Easter for about a month now by eating fistfuls of mini eggs daily, icing egg biscuits and dreaming up bunny drip cakes. I find Easter to be one of the cuter celebrations – all baby animals and pastel colours. So I made this …Read More
The lovely ladies at gift registry company Prezola got in touch to see if I would provide some cakes for their stand at The Most Curious Wedding Fair this weekend. I was really excited as I attended the fair last year with Alexia and it was brilliant. It’s full of creative people exhibiting their alternative wedding businesses. If you want a cool wedding this is the place to head. The Truman Brewery is full of quirky cakes, dreamy dresses and Instagramable stationary this weekend.

It also has a Kylo Ren, whose light sabre is also the birthday candle AND (my favourite part) the Death Star, which is also a mini piñata cake. The cake itself is …Read More
You’d think being asked to put someone’s whole life on a cake would be mega challenging, but I loved making this cake for the lovely Sabrina who turned 18 this week. I’ve been scheming with Sabrina’s Mum, Donna, about this cake for a while. She wanted the cake to tell the story of her life and represent all the people and things she loves. The three tier cake was covered in edible photos of her family, closest friends and the cutest old school photo I’ve ever seen. I made lots of sugar decorations including …Read More
