Ob & Gyn cake

I have to admit, when I was asked to make an 'Ob & Gyn' cake I did have to google it.... Of course, those with children would probably know it means Obstetrics & Gynecology. I honestly had no idea what the customer would like but I quite liked the idea of some sort of medical diagram for the lucky lady who has just finished her Ob & Gyn studies - and is therefore celebrating with cake - and so it became a pink and beige cake with the diagram on top. I do believe this is probably the first and last time I will write 'Vagina' on a cake...but, then again, you never know?!

p.s. you may have noticed a little shrimp in the womb... apparently the receiver of this cake used to call her daughter shrimp before she was born...

Spring Birthday Cake

This was a very last minute order from a customer who I had previously made a cake for to celebrate their new son, he loved it so much he ordered a cake for his girlfriends birthday. Luckily I had a few hours spare and he picked it up on his way home. Happy Birthday Annemieke!

Fetish party at Go Gallery

Last month saw the Go Gallery (on behalf of Sexy Art Gallery)open the Wasteland weekend with an exhibtion of fetish art by artist 'Gernot'. The female body has never been this erotic clad in leather, studs, netting and tight fitting rubber. Naturally I wanted to make some matching fetish cupcakes, inspired by the art itself, and these three lovely ladies kindly handed them round!

Happy Birthday to my little nephew Dexter!

It seems all children are fascinated by the smoothness of cakes, regularly I see them 'stroking' their birthday cake, totally forgetting that the rest of us are going to be eating that too! Never mind, that was nothing compared to the amount of blue tongues and teeth experienced by all last saturday at my nephew's 'Spiderman' themed birthday party. Must remember that...

A taste of Britain?

Who'd of thought it? My local Waterstones book shop in Amsterdam now sells 'A tatse of Britain', food for those Brits out here who miss Yorkshire Tea, Branston Pickle, Salad cream & HP Sauce!

Happy Birthday Emily, Charlie & Thomas

A customer of mine ordered a few cupcakes for her sisters birthday (no need for a huge '3-0' when you're that age!) and some for her two sons who are all celebrating this weekend! Happy Birthday!
