This was another squidgy chocolate cake and weighed an absolute ton! It was for a friend's nephew's 18th birthday.

Boobies Mk. II

These were for another good friend's husband and were actually chocolate muffins!

Bride cuts the cake

Now this is when you know that your cake's appreciated! A proud moment in any cake-maker's life! Thanks, Sarah. :)

Rich's cousin's wedding cake and themed bun dessert

Now this was a very satisfying project. (By the way, please excuse any typos, I blame the cat on my laptop!) Rich's cousin was married recently and we made; you've got it, the squidgy chocolate cake for her wedding cake. The base was two eggless sponges piled on top of one another; both 12" square (I have no idea how I got them there!) and the buns were vanilla with piped vanilla buttercream and handmade Maori symbols (unfurling fern and fishhook) on top. The cake itself was in the shape of a Maori triple twist, which was totally beyond me but Rich used his brain and came up with the goods!

HMS Victory

I had forgotten that I'd once been to see this ship until a good friend asked for this for his dad's birthday. Credit goes to Rich for the cannons made of cut-down liquorice pipes - genius!

Simpsons cake

This cake made me happy. It was for the son of a friend at work and it was fun and great from start to finish! Bart wore a karate suit as the birthday boy loves the Simpsons and his karate classes.

Caravan! (Or back to where it all started.)

This was for my dad's 65th birthday. I remember the cake things starting 5 years ago on his 60th when I wanted to make him a special cake (see the first post). Hooray for my dad!!!
