Castle Cake

I tend to give any cake ago, if you have an idea and you want me to try it then I will see if there is a logical way of doing it. This cake is a Castle cake, done originally for a little girls first birthday, it was all vanilla cake with vanilla butter icing and jam.

The base is a 9 inch cake, there are straws in the towers to hold them in place all the way through to the base. I was please with the way this one turned out, the tops are just pink paper made into cone but there to hide the secret sweeties underneath :)

 Ohhh the sweeties!
Ahhh the pink of it all.

Call of Cthulhu Cake

Hello Its me again. I thought this time I would post a dear friends cake that was done for his birthday. This is a gamers cake and Mr Flint had no idea what type of cake he was going to get. This was two 8 by 12 inch chocolate Guinness cakes, sandwiched together with chocolate and Guinness butter icing.

The Mythos design on the top was hand drawn on first using a scratching tool, and then piped over with royal icing. All the tentacles you see are all edible fondant icing. I had great fun with this one and the cake its self was quite big again.

Pumpkin Cake

I thought the first cake I would post would be one of my most favorite cakes. A chocolate cake in the shape of a carved pumpkin. This was three, 10 inch chocolate cakes all stacked up on each other and cut to the shape you see.

There was three kilos of fondant icing, and by the time I was done it was heavy!

This is about the only pic you will see of me, I'm not keen on having my photo taken but its gives you an idea of the size!

This was done for the Teesside Universities Animation and Comic Society Halloween Ball. I think it all went well!? I liked this cake because Halloween is my favorite holiday and it was great fun to make something for it!

Any who, thanks for listening to be ramble.


First Post

So, my partner and our friends use this to post their gaming and painting things. So I was advised this would be a good place to post some cake related things too!

So yeah, I game, and paint, and make cake. Some times its to do with gaming, but not as often as I would like. Other times its requests for more normal cakes, but I will be posting some of my older designs on hear over the next following months.

See I'm not in a position to be able to do much baking right now so it will be some time next year before I start taking more orders on a serious level. Doesn't mean I cant start loading up the work I have done so far!

I'll post the cakes on a cake to cake basis, so please give me your comments good and bad as I am always keen to learn! 

Thank you for listening to me ramble.
