Joint First Birthday Cake (for eight!)

1st birthday cake rainbow colours.

Eight names!

 

This was a lovely order; bright colours and a simple, joyful design for a group of babies celebrating their first birthdays at one (I imagine quite chaotic!) party. Salted caramel cake with salted caramel filling and buttercream and all eight names piped around the top of the cake. I was pleased it was an even number of names as spacing is always tricky for decoration like this on a round cake – being able to divide the cake into eight even segments helped very much! The dots are simple and effective in rainbow colours and the result is a happy, fun cake!

40th birthday cake for a fan of the outdoors, a good drink and the Mini.

This is a salted caramel cake; vanilla cake with a layer of homemade salted caramel inside and folded into the buttercream. I made extra and had some on ice cream the next day! A cake for someone with varying interests, it doesn’t get more personal than this. A rugby ball, a TV, bottle of whiskey, pint of lager, dark green Mini and a tent to represent various aspects of the recipients interests. I kept the images simple and had to do a bit of juggling to make sure they all fit on the cake but was pleased with the overall effect.
