I’ve had to dig out the old sugar flower making skills recently…lovely to be stretching a different creative muscle!

So here are a couple of close ups of a sugar flower made using a dog rose cutter…which can be made to look a wee bit like an open peony too.

Here are some fantastic photos (thank you Emma G!) of some lovely embossed rose, lavender and lemon cupcakes that I made for a great party by Who’s Jack magazine at Proud Galleries in Camden…the cakes are hand embossed using a lovely little floral cutter, and made with real lavender, rose or lemon…lush

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”…

But I’ve done some lovely ones in the past, have a look at the below:

these are wee vanilla cupcakes with simple handmade sugar flowers
looks a bit like chocolate milk cake with mascarpone and fresh strawberries to me!
