Latest cake creation...





















I was recently asked to make a special cake for a First Holy Communion celebration. It was a challenge to come up with a fitting cake for such an important occasion! For this cake I created a moist honey and vanilla sponge complimented by a zingy lemon buttercream icing. I went for a classic cross shape which didn't need much adornment, just a few sugarpaste roses to finish it off.







I decorated the cake with three sugar paste roses. The first time I tried my hand at making roses I left the finished flower in a bowl on the kitchen counter to dry before popping out. When I returned I found the rose smashed on the kitchen floor and a very guilty looking Toby Cat sat in the opposite corner of the house! This was a beast of a cake - probably the biggest I've ever made. Luckily it went down a storm. Watch this space for more exciting cake news soon!
