I love Italia Cake

Italian lover cake to celebrate 50th Birthday!   What could be better to celebrate 50th Birthday for an Italian lover other than cake representing what we love about Italy! Vanilla sponge cake carved into a massive Cappuccino Mug, slice of pizza, bread sticks, and to top it up a small yacht! All made entirely of sugar! A special thanks for Jacquie from Luton for her kind words: "Just wanted to drop you a quick line to say a big Thank you for the cake. It was fabulous and got many many admiring comments. "

Prince William & Kate Middleton Royal Wedding Cake

I use this ideal home show cake competition as a great opportunitiy to do something different, other than the usual decorated round tiered cake people normally expect for a classic tiered wedding cake. It was really a challenge for me to do this cake. It's a hard work, but I really enjoyed making it. Prince William and Kate Middleton cake is made of traditional english fruit cake, carved into 3D busts with an armature inside, covered with apricot jam. The icing was sculpted with details and then airbrushed with colours to make it look more realistic. It took about 80 hours to make and I uses more than 10kgs marzipan and 10kg Icing sugar. You can see this cake at the " Ideal Food-Ideal Cake Decorato r" section at the Ideal Home Show March 11th -  27th   2011 Earls Court London. I hope I see you there!
