Rule of engagements

Two friends of mine (incidentally with really similar names!) got engaged around the same time. What better gift (especially when you don't know what else to get them hehe) than something edible and pretty... and pre-emptive of their big day.

Matchy matchy

For two special ladies on their birthdays... I chose black and white for understatedness and elegance but I couldn't resist using a bit of colour. Big bows are always a winner with me. And those roses were made without a rolling pin, cutter or balling tool - I call it the lazy caker's rose, easily done in front of the tv!

Anniversary cake

Every 10th wedding anniversary deserves cake! As it was a special occasion only for 2, we wanted to scale it down but keep a grand towering 3-layer look. The size came to 4" on top, 5" in middle, 6" on bottom. And even with such small sizes, dowels are still necessary - take my word for it!
