I haven’t made some fun cupcakes for a while so I was really excited when my friend Jen asked if I could make some safari themed cupcakes for her daughter Abi’s first birthday party. Click here to find out how to make these safari cupcakes.
I’d never made a 100th Birthday cake before, so I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to make one. It was for our close friend’s Granny, who is called Rose, so the request for pink roses on the cake was perfect. The cake was a light fruit cake, a delicious recipe from an old cook book that our Mum has, great for this time of year! Click here for the recipe.

This week has been a busy cake week. I usually find that if somebody asks me to make a cake, it usually ends up being for a week when I’m already making one. This week I’ve made two very different cakes, but both had a football theme. The first one I made was this one – a Sunderland football shirt.
