Christening biscuit with hand piped flowers.

It took a lot of time and a lot of flowers to decorate the edges of these biscuits; they are essentially mini reproductions of the Christening cake! The are bright and joyful, just right to celebrate a new small person! Cake and biscuits are vanilla and the decoration is all hand piped in royal icing.

I love orders that have several opportunities to work a theme into the decoration. This order was for a joint sibling birthday and by using bright colours for all parts of the order it was possible to have two distinctly individual cakes which were complimented by the party favour biscuits and the cupcakes. The birthday cakes were raspberry and chocolate cakes – both covered in vanilla buttercream. The cupcakes were lemon and the biscuits, gingerbread.

These tiara cookies were made for a recent 4th birthday order with a princess theme. The cookie cutter was easy to find and they are fairly simple to decorate – a background of white icing and various shades of pink for the dots and swirls to make pretty tiaras. Vanilla cookies with royal icing decoration.

lemon lavender fondant fancies

Sweets for my sweet. Fondant fancies for Valentine’s day.

There is still time to order for Valentine’s day this year. Fondant fancies are available in lemon and lavender or vanilla. They are soft squares of sponge cake, soaked in syrup and dipped in fondant for a smooth finish. Available in whichever colour your Valentine likes best and as always they are decorated to order so feel free to have them convey your own words of affection! Nothing nicer than to say it with cake (particularly marriage proposals, which are especially good on cake!). Or we can send out a box of this years signature design, see images below. 9 for £20.

salted caramel valentine heart cookies.

Sandwich biscuits with salted caramel filling.

 

Salted caramel heart biscuits are delicious and buttery shortbread 6″ in diameter sandwiched together with homemade caramel. A little Maldon salt helps keep the sweetness in check and there are plenty to share. And really very good with vanilla ice cream if you need a pudding for your Valentine’s dinner at home. Box of 3 for £12.50.

Orders can be picked up Thursday and Friday from East Finchley, N2 or delivered across London. Call or email to place your order cakes@lavenderbakery.co.uk / 07507 863502

This gingerbread bakery is the kind of project I like best. It was the first time I had designed an entire structure myself but the most enjoyable part was sculpting the tiny cakes and loaves of bread for the inside. … Continue reading
