I loved making this cake and I was asked to show it in more detail so I have made a collage of some of the pictures I took before it was picked up – I am by no means a photographer but I think you can see more detail here than the photo on my website.

It is a double height cake covered in lemon fondant with white blossom and branch detailing. I then made a stand-up 80 out of fondant to sit on top. The design is finished with a sugar peony flower I made in graduating colour to a golden center.

I have included this gallery of cake designs in my wedding cake posts because I think this would be a beautiful wedding cake even if it was all white on white.

You can find the recipes for these at http://inspired-by-chocolate-and-cakes.com/easter-chocolate-recipes.html the cupcake ideas were actually for a christening but I think they would work beautifully for Easter.

Turn your favourite chocolate chip cookies into hot cross cookies even chocolate truffles can be decorated for Easter. The little bunny is just a chocolate dipped strawberry decorated with ears and whiskers.

Enjoy!

Each month I highlight the cake I enjoyed making the most which I have to say is not an easy task.

This month it was this tiffany blue 50th birthday cake with handmade peony roses. One of the many wonderful sides to making cakes is the lovely people I get to meet and this birthday girl was definitely one of those.

This is a double height cake and has a board in the center so the cake can be served as two individual cakes. The other plus to this style of cake is that you can have two different flavoured cakes.

The cake is laced up at the back making the cake interesting when displayed from any angle.

The base is finished with white velvet and ivory gold ribbon with a final band of beautiful diamante which sparkle as you walk around the cake.

Beautiful baby teddy bears decorate all these cakes. I make smooth bears and a shaggy version and they can come in any colour combination you wish. Some of the christening or baptism cakes also include a little crystal cross on one of the bears paws. Like the jungle animals if you carefully remove the bears they can be kept as a memento of the day. Fondant bears are not only for baby’s cakes the image with the two shaggy bears was for a 25th wedding anniversary.

Today I’m adding another couple of cake collages. The first one is some of my jungle cake designs. This has to be the most popular theme for christening and first birthdays for little boys. But I have also included a picture for a little girls theme as well. All the animals are made out of fondant and if carefully removed can be kept as a memento.

The animals can be made ahead of time but I would suggest if the monkey is going to sit on the side of the cake then add his legs and tail on the cake as you will get a better fit. Having said that my timing and work load usually means I’m making the animals fresh in position on the cake!!

I have just made this collage of images of one of my most popular designs. The idea behind this cake was the Alice in Wonderland theme. The cake has been personalised by including a little handmade figurine on the birthday girl wearing her new party dress.
