First Display

I've been working on making four different dummy cakes (which will hopefully end up in a local shop tomorrow!). I figured that I ought to produce a few different styles, appealing to different folk so I went for:

Believe it or not, I've made a hole in the centre and added florists' foam inside the hollowed cake shell! All in an attempt to keep the flowers fresh for as long as possible whilst on display. Who would have thought?

I'm not sure if I'm overly keen on this - but hey it's certainly something different from my usuals.

Serious (Royalty)
If I could only present this to the man himself - King Abdullah :-)


Oh So Pretty!

I'll be eagerly waiting to see what passers by have to say!

Strawberries & Chocolate

Strawberries are in season and my local fruit & veg shop owner claims he has the best in town - and I believe him, they are really good. I bought a punnet or so last night, dipped them in chocolate and used them to dress a chocolate fudge cake I was making for a friend's BBQ.

And what to do with left over frosting? Vanilla cupcakes, swirls of buttercream with chocolate covered strawberries to complement. Mmmm!
