Triathlon cake

This was for a friend's birthday. He's the instigator of the triathlon training that seems to be taking over our lives. This is his cake...

Sarah's cake

This was fantastic (although the design was 'borrowed' from the Jane Asher site. A passing child commented: "I never knew Aladdin was so fat!"
My argument is that he and Jasmine have been married for a few years and now they're comfortable.

Sweet shop cake

For a great friend's 40th birthday and weekend away (with included sweet shop, cocktail fountain and candy floss machine) we made this birthday cake. Note the fish shop joined on - they own a fish and chip shop! (We couldn't resist!)

(About the photos - it was a masquerade pyjama party!)

Huddersfield Town...

Another good friend retired and here is the cake that we made this diehard Huddersfield Town fan. Ignore the fact that the terrier looks a little like Brian Blessed...please....

Manager's Retirement Cake

A manager and friend retired and vowed to spend more time playing golf. So here's how Rich and I commemorated his leaving:

50th Birthday

We made this for a very good friend. Good old reliable whisky fruit cake and a design to match her invitations. Very classy.

Father's Day Dalek!

Rich and I made this for my Dad for Father's Day. Probably more food colouring than is legal, but I had a hankering to make a Dalek cake with Smarties for the studs, and this was the unfortunate result!

Christmas present cake 2007

I made a couple of these for family members - it was my first attempt at this kind of thing with nuts and cherries...I'm a bit pleased!

..Wine was not mine - honest!

Happy New Year! (2007)

Unsurprisingly, these are the cakes that I made and decorated for our 2007 new year party.

Unfortunately, people cut into the chocolate cake before hubby could take a picture. Still, I guess that's a compliment.

Land Rover Cake

I made this for my dad's 60th. He's always wanted a Land Rover and I think this is the best he'll get! (Hopefully not, Dad!) This took about 7 hours from start to finish, not including baking the cake.
