Spring Breeze Cake

Spring Cake

Sweet colors and delicate flowers announcing Springtime and quite unusual for my flowers, not a single floristry wire involved in the creation of this cake!

This time I focused on colour and tenderness to conceive a design that could be very easy to recreate at home with basic equipment and little expertise and most of all, I wanted it to be super-pretty.

The perfect cake to celebrate the coming of Spring if you don’t have too much time to spend on the decoration.

You can find step-by-step instructions to make the Spring Breeze cake in issue 120 of Cake & Sugarcraft Magazine.

Wishing you a lovely month of March,

Vintage Charm Cake

I will always remember last summer as the season of roses and hydrangeas. I love those flowers, especially when they are together. Their shapes and colours are the epitome of Nature’s beauty!

Starting from those thoughts, a few months ago I decided to design a cake featuring roses and hydrangeas. The simple idea became a project in the 2nd issue of Squires Kitchen’s Bake School Magazine. The article is a step-by-step guide to making flowers, cake and mini cakes.

SKMP must have thought the same about the magical match, because to my surprise the cake was used on the cover of Wedding Cakes magazine, issue 45!

It is a great honour for me. Seeing my work, and what was intended as a homage to Mother Nature, on the cover of a world-renowned magazine filled me with joy. When passion and hard work meet, sometimes something magic is born.

If you-like me-love roses and hydrageas, please join me on March 15th, 2013 and March 17th, 2013 at Squires Kitchen’s Exhibition in Farnham, Surrey. We’ll learn how to make blossom mini cakes. See you there, then!
