Xbox Controller Cupcakes

For my best friends birthday i slyly asked him what he prefers, he said he prefers cupcakes over a birthday cake with him not having a party.
So for his birthday I surprised him with some Xbox Controller Cupcakes. He was over the moon with them and refused to share them with anyone.

Custard Cream Cupcakes

One of my regular customers ordered a batch of chocolate orange cupcakes and as he normally shares his cakes with his dog, he order a special batch of custard cream cupcakes just for his dog. They were totally edible to humans but the dog loved them.

Iphone Cake

This was a 21st cake for Rachael. She worked at Carphone Warehouse and loved for Iphone. Her family thought it would be a great idea to get a massive Iphone cake for her birthday. As their is many people for the celebration they ordered an large cake, thankfully as it made it easier to fit all the apps on.

13th Birthday Giant Cupcakes

After attempting my other giant cupcakes i was finally happy enough to do my giant cupcake. She asked it to be in the theme of stars and hearts. She wanted it pink and purple. Just generally really girly.
I did the giant cupcake which they asked for then for it would look good with normal cupcakes and little cupcakes around the edges to add a bit of extra to the cake. 
They were really pleased with the cake and have spread the word and got me business since. 

Jubilee Cupcakes

Someone at worked asked me to make me some cupcakes so they could enter them into a cake competition at his work (BnQ). He entered my cakes and came first.

Second Attempt at a Giant Cupcake

For my second attempt i made a joint giant cupcake. The top of the cake is girly with butterflies and glitter. The bottom half is for a Hartlepool football supporter. 
Don't really think the two themes go together, but this is what the customer asked for. 

Spiderman Cake

Making spiderman and the writing onto of the cake tin so i know it fits.

The finshed cake

A girl i work for son's birthday was coming up so she asked me to make him a spiderman cake. When i delivered it he didn't believe that i hadn't bought it from a shop.

First Attempt at a Giant Cupcake

This is my first attempt of a giant cupcake. A neighbour asked me to make one for his daughters birthday, her birthday was three months away so this gave me plenty of time to practise. It was one of my friends at uni's birthday so thought id make for a giant cupcake to practise. This isn't perfect but i learnt what i did wrong with plenty of times to get better.

Vanilla and Flake Cupcakes

These are vanilla flavoured cupcakes with a flake topping.

Penguin Cake

These are the penguins ready to go on top of the cake

My best friend and his girlfriend went away travelling and while they were away it was Helen's birthday. As they were in South America they wasn't anywhere to get her a birthday present or cake. So in the emails he asked me to make her a cake for them returning. 
He only left me a day to do this cake but her favourite animal are penguins so we agreed this would be a great design for a cake, if i had more time i would have done this cake a lot better and detailed.  
He surprised Helen with it in a restaurant they used to work in and shared it round, I got a lot of good feed back from this cake. 

m&m's cake

For my second cake it was another friends birthday, when i used to work at spar me and my friend Ben used to have m&m's Friday. So for his birthday i made him an m&m's cake. The cake itself had m&m's in it.
