I am never too surprised by the requests for types of birthday cakes, both novelty and classic. You are only limited by your imagination in terms of what you would like to see in a cake! I have in the past made all sorts of cakes from football cakes, to sugarplum fairies to treasure chests and iPods. At the other end of the spectrum, I get asked to make elegant cakes with roses and blossoms and other beautiful flowers. A recent request was for a ballerina wearing an apron and holding a wine glass and recipe book in each hand – I can tell you that was a challenge I could not resist!

So whatever takes your fancy, please contact me, you never know…I might just take up the challenge!
