Bunting Cake and Vintage cupcakes

I was asked to create a vintage style cake for a 21st birthday, the brief was 'she loves vintage' so I eagerly put forward my bunting cake, a cake I had been dying to do for ages. My customer agreed! So here it is! A two tiered affair with sugar bunting around the edges. The cake itself was a simple Victoria sponge.

The cupcakes were made for a customer who popped round for a wedding cake consultation, her brief was 'Wedgwood, daisies, pearls, pink roses, vintage style' so this is what she got :)

I used a little bit of black sugar paste mixed with white and a touch of royal blue gel colour to create the Wedgwood blue colour, I just played around with it until I got the right grey/blue tones.

Vintage style cakes rule!!

You can now book yourself onto one of my cupcake decorating workshops and pay online, yey!

I had some workshops this weekend and was joined by some really lovely ladies, I thought I would share some photos with you.

This workshop was a vintage inspired cupcake decorating workshop; the ladies decorated 9 cupcake each both vanilla and chocolate. They used buttercream piping techniques and learnt how to pipe with royal icing to create beautiful vintage designs. To decorate their cakes they learnt how to make sugar roses, teapots and teacups as well as how to use lots of different cutters and get the best look from them with lots of tips and advice.

On top of all this they enjoyed a delightful afternoon tea served on vintage china which consisted of delicate finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones with clotted cream and homemade jam and lots of little cakes, they have to keep their energy up!

Vintage Wedding Fair in Leamington Spa

I exhibited at the Vintage Wedding Fair in Leamington Spa yesterday and it was great! I saw two of my lovely friends there who are getting married soon, one of them bought her dress yey!

I also met up with some good old Twitter friends, Rachel Spivey photography and Daisy Cupcakes, two fabulous businesses and lovely, lovely women! I was amazed by the quality of the stall holders and felt so inspired by the wonderful vintage businesses we have out there. I was also very impressed with all of the lovely brides and grooms I met on the day, they were all so chilled about their days and had a clear idea of what they wanted or at least a colour scheme which is a start!

The day was set off beautifully by the Polka Dot Dolls who sung fabulous 1940's and some 1950's songs, it was dreamy, I could have stayed there all day. I would definitely recommend these ladies for your wedding.

I will very much look forward to meeting up with lots of brides and grooms I met on the day to chat afternoon teas, vintage china and cupcakes!

Thank you to my amazing boyfriend for the photographs!
