Once bitten forever smitten - Sight, smell, touch and taste

Enjoying a cake uses four of the five senses (all except hearing). When you see that cake you just want to taste it, when you smell that sweet mallowly scent of fondant icing you start to salivate, when it gets onto your tongue you feel the lightness of the sponge and the sweetness of the frosting on your teeth and then your tastebuds are all at once satisfied by the melting butteryness and sugar rush.

The whole concept of Delicakes is that the taste and mouthfeel is so mouthwateringly yummy you will always want more. If you dont like fondant your cake can be covered in butttercream frosting as above or creamcheese for a clean finish as below
Or you can go for a fondant decorated cake to reflect a favouite hobby such as this Snare Drum cake that had a chocolate and vanilla marble cake hiding inside.

All cakes can be ordered by email, and there are now separate websites for Birthday cakes and Wedding cakes so you can quickly find what you want, best wishes, Janet

Once bitten forever smitten - Chelsea Flower Show

This week is Chelsea Flower Show and although I've left it too late to get tickets I am celebrating the Queen of English flowers with a fresh rose design in Lime Green. Yes I know its not typical - and it may not be real but this Rose Topper cake has been made specially for my sister and the cake is a lemon sponge with a zingy lime cream cheese filling and I wanted the decoration to complement the filling!
And just to show that Carnations are still a popular flower here is the Wedding Cake I made for a lovely couple who were so not 'My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding' 
 If you have a big celebration coming up why not have a bespoke cake made especially for you - email orders via the website contact form or text 07714286911
best wishes, Janet

Once bitten forever smitten - Colour Blocking

All the fashions for this spring and summer are about big bold blocks of colour - and they dont come bigger or bolder than this fantastic 40 - covered in red glitter and sugar diamonds what diva could mind turnng 40 if they had a cake like this to celebrate.

I think the equivalent cake for children would be a lego bricks cake but I havent made one of these yet so here is one made by Dragonfly.

There are so many ways to link cake with current trends and fashion, so if you want a birthday cake and fancy one shaped like a handbag or a shoe let me know by emailing me your order or check out BirthdayDelicakes
Best Wishes, Janet
