My Joy! 

It's not often that during a cake delivery I am lost for words. Those that know me will possibly say I am never lost for words.

Well One of this weeks deliveries was such a day, I had the privilege of making a birthday cake for a really special little boy who until today had never been able to eat his own birthday cake. 

Our challenge was to make a wheat, soy, dairy & egg free cake!! We persevered and checked our ingredients my husband and I determined to get it right. We had too there was no other option. After quite a few failed attempts I finally had produced a lovely rich cake chocolate fudge cake that was free from all of the things that could make little Albert ill. 

We delivered this Disney Plane themed cake this week and I am sure the customer won't mind me saying that when she cried at the sight of the cake and my heart melted. Birthday cakes are part of a celebration that celebrates life!! Every birthday is a 'big birthday' and should be celebrated with those you care about and care for you.  This is a huge reason I love and do this job, and why my family put up with the late nights and early mornings and a sometime rather grumpy sleep deprived wife/mummy. It fills me with joy! I am one very happy cake lady this week.

Have a wonderful scrummy evening! I know I will.

Special Moments

Looking through some old pictures and I found this little gem, and it made me realise that cake has always been a part of my life. My 1st birthday cake, it wasn’t pretty but my Mum made an attempt and let’s be honest at that age I probably ended up wearing more than I ended up eating.
My love of cake now is more than just the taste, it is pictured here it is the simplicity. My big brother kissing my head probably after singing me happy birthday with my older sister watching on, I’m guessing my mum is taking the picture but we were all there, Together. At that moment there was a unity in the family with no fighting, shouting or sibling rivalries.

Cake to me now is more than just to eat, it is the key to any special occasion, a wedding, a birthday, a christening all have that magic moment that, snapshot in time captured forever, and I am so happy now to be helping make people make these special moments and being a part of something so wonderful.

Sweet memories everyone!
