OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt’s been a while since Em and added something new to our page, but we’ve still been busy doing plenty of baking! A couple of weeks ago my friends James and Amelia got married and I was thrilled to be asked to make their wedding cake for them. It’s great to be asked to make a cake that’s completely different from anything I’ve done before, so I was very excited when James and Amelia found a photo of a silhouette wedding cake that they really liked.

p1240155This year I have been slightly more organised than last year and managed to make and decorate my Christmas cake on time! I wanted to try something different and designed a cake with quilled snowflakes. We learned how to quill icing on our Squires cake course last year, a technique I had never done before. It’s quite therapeutic and fun to create different shapes and fit them all together. Click  here to see my snowflake designs.

A couple of months ago I made my first wedding cake of 2016 and the first since little Emily arrived.

Helen is English, so the cake had some large red roses and Nick is from New Zealand, so some ferns were also included in the design. Click here to see some more pics of this stand out cake.

Making a gingerbread house has become an annual event with my friend Anne. Each year we seem to spend more time talking and drinking tea and less time making and decorating our gingerbread! It’s great fun and hopefully we’ll be doing it for many more years to come. This year I decided to make a bird box and keep the colours simple with just white Royal icing with a few red highlights.

Last weekend we had a Reunion/ Christmas get together with our NCT friends, which we offered to host. Baking with a 7 week old baby is challenging, but I was desperate to bake something Christmassy and fun!   I chose a design that could be done in stages so I could fit it in around looking after little Emily. Click here to see what I baked.
