Joseph George

My little man turned one this week and since we had a whole bunch of people over I decided to make a really huge Carrot Cake that was double depth feeding about 50.
Since rolled fondant really doesn't go well with cream cheese frosting I decorated it instead with hundreds and thousands and a bow with a large number one on top; and idea I saw a while ago on Pinterest. I have to say, the floor was covered in sprinkles by the time I was finished!
The little stick in the top is a sparkler since he's too tiny to blow out a candle.

House Warming Toffee

My sister is moving into her new home this week and toffee is a wonderful house warming present since it travels well and lasts a while.
This was a really easy recipe, literally butter, sugar and a little water all boiled down, that's all! Once poured into the pan, it's coated in chocolate and flaked almonds, yum!

Matilda Mabel

Welcome Matilda Mabel Burlinson!
Since there would be no christening cake, Mr&Mrs Burlinson wanted a 'welcome to the world' cake so it was a white iced fruit cake with navy ribbon and her name and birthday piped around the edge. Very simple and not too girly!
Portion: 25 people
