I rather like making cakes.  So, just for something  a bit different, I thought I’d post photos of some of the cakes I’ve made.  (Happy to take commissions too, if you’re local!)

Party Piñata (March 2017)

Inside it looked like this:

Chocolate Fairy Cakes (May 2017)

Motte and Bailey Castle (February 2017)

Actually, this one’s not mine as such – it was my daughter’s for the school castle competition.  It won first prize.


Scones (February 2017)


I’ve never been very good at scones until now.  These were quite good.

The Cakes of Mordor (October 2013).

Probably my all-time favourite –  front and back, complete with orks.

Yule Log, 2016.

I’ve been making Yule log the same way, with the same decoration, ever since I was taught by Mrs Miller in home economics at school when I was 11.  Which is now rather a long time…

Interlocking Lego Bricks, October 2016.

I’m quite proud of this one.  Different coloured cakes to create the effect of stacked lego bricks.

Lego Station (October 2015).

The significance of this will probably be lost on you, but I copied a lego station that my son had designed and for which we had ordered the bricks as a birthday present.
