Snail Rider

A Steampunk Screaming Snail Rider!  Sure why not…? This is my first attempt at a Steampunk styled piece and I had so much fun with it. It was also, for me, a bit of fear therapy too. I have a bit of a fear of snails – so the research and pictures of it almost broke me! I call this piece – “Rush hour traffic” as this is what it feels like sometimes. Please go and see all of the other pieces in the Steam Cakes Collaboration...

Hulk Smash!

Well it’s that time of year again… my son Cormac’s birthday.  Cakes are expected and time always seems to be short.  I always end up rushing his cakes for some reason.  So this time, I decided to try and come up with a design that would be easy to put together last minute and this one worked! I’m normally a one cake a week, kinda gal.  But this week I had 4 cakes to do!!  That may not sound like much to some of you.

While spending Christmas in Canada in the FREEZING cold, we had to entertain the kids somehow without turning them into icicles.  So we spent some time in a good few museums.  I couldn’t take my eyes off of the Native American clothes, headdresses and history in these places and the need to ‘cake it’ began.  So with a month to go before the Cork competition I decided to start my Crowfoot piece.  VERY unlike me.  I’m usually a last minute-mad-panic-like-crazy-trying-to-finish kinda girl. I knew I wanted to do a Native American bust and after some research I finally decided on recreating Chief Crowfoot, who was an amazing guy from the 1850s.  He brought peace between the First Nations and the government and was also known for fighting alcoholism among the Blackfoot people. After a chat with a friend in Canada I knew how I wanted to create the beaded panels with sprinkles (dragees/nonpareils) secured into modelling chocolate.  But I had no idea how long this would take.  I started with one of the...

"Bread" Chocolate Cake

I was the lucky girl that got this cake as a present from Av and Brian, I was stunned at the amazing level of detail in this cake, literally jaw dropping at how realistic it was, so much so that little Otis was picking off the pumpkin seeds!! You have such an awesome talent – Thank you!
