This is a beautiful embossed cake with hand cut-out lettering that I did for a photoshoot with http://www.jakefitzjones.com/

Its made with a recipe that involves a high cocoa chocolate milkshake (oh yeah) and mascarpone – its probably in my top five favourite recipes…what do you think of the way it looks?

I’ve also done ones which read “I thought you didn’t like cake” and “its not for you, its for me”…

I make a lot of cakes with edible flowers – rose and lavender being my favourites. The pic below is of one with made with a classic victoria sponge recipe, customised with some amazing Persian rose essence and fresh (edible, as long as you don’t eat a hundred) rose petals…
