Phil and I are delighted that the studio has been chosen as a favourite supplier for Quintessentially Weddings...
This tree-house, standing over 1m tall was based on the adventures of the Swiss Family Robinson. It was judged by Mike McCarey (of Mike’s Amazing Cakes, Redmond, WA), and won the professionals category at the Cake & Bake Show, Earls Court, London, October 2014.
Madeira cake was baked in round moulds and covered with hundreds of individually cut leaves. Three huts were painstakingly designed and crafted out of pastillage, gum-paste and royal icing, along with figures from the adventure book. Interest in the Tree-house cake generated over 14,000 hits on the Peboryon Facebook Page.
This Cornish community church was celebrating their 10th Anniversary and wanted to feature the multigenerational congregation, aspects of worship, the church logo and values, all set in a Cornish context. A classic Victoria sponge with locally sourced strawberry jam and vanilla butter-cream was shared among the 200 guests.
Tin was the binding agent in this concept, being both a Cornish treasure and the symbol for a tenth anniversary. Designing it as a colourful novelty cake enabled the community values and relationships to be expertly displayed.
