Drinking Horse Sculpture cake

This one was tough, it took a lot of planning but I loved making it and am really pleased with it. The structure was quite complicated as the weight needed to be distributed evenly to make it work.

Nic Fiddian Green creates the most incredible and enormous horse sculptures (think Marble Arch), my client loves them and so this was a tribute to him.

Here is one of his sculptures and I used this style to create the cake.

And here's the cake...

Company Magazine shoot Christmas Cake

This month Love to Cake is in Company Magazine. I was invited along to be photographed along side other young women who had set up their own businesses. It was pretty terrifying having my photo taken but I got through it and covered myself with fake snow which camouflaged me well...

Here is the Christmas Cake and cupcakes I made for the shoot. They looked wonderful in the pictures and I've had lots of calls which is brilliant.


Harry Potter Sorting Hat Cake

Here's a cake I made the other day for Rose's 6th birthday. This one smelt incredibly chocolatey and was full of squidgy chocolate butter cream.

I'm making a Horse sculpture cake this week using rice crispie treats as a structure for the first time. VERY useful. Watch this space for the pictures...

Halloween White Wolf Cake

Here he is, my favourite Halloween cake...
I had wanted to make something completely terrifying but the birthday girl was only 10 and loves the 'Twilight' movies so we went with a white howling wolf instead... I LOVE him and so did she.

His mouth was made with chocolate paste and then glazed so it looked incredibly realistic.

I will however be making the absolutely terrifying wolf cake at some point so watch this space...

The World's First 18+ Cake Shop

This Halloween Love to Cake took part in the world's first over 18 cake shop in Shoreditch, East London.

"Eat Your Heart Out and The Pretox Potion" was a huge success and the brain child of serial blogger Miss Cakehead.

There was coverage on BBC's The One Show so it promised to be a packed out event. Queues stretched down the road as hungry customers waited to experience the shop's gruesome delights.
With a background in Special make up and creature effects I literally jumped at the chance to get involved and covered in blood and guts once again.

This blog contains cakes that some people may find disturbing...

WARNING 18+ only

Love to Cake's Zombie roadkill cake.
No badgers were harmed in the making of this cake.

Wound and stitches cupcakes as seen

Vile vanilla, reeking raspberry and chilling chocolate made up the wounds and stitches cupcakes. Unbelievably, they were a sell out.

And so passes another Halloween. Big thanks to Miss Cakehead who allowed me to dabble in the dark side once more. I think I've got a taste for it again...
