Choir Themed Birthday Fun!

Its been a while since I have had chance to write a blog post – summer has come and gone and with it lots of new wonderful memories have been had! I thought I would start the month of September off with this blog post about a very musically themed birthday cake!

I was asked to make this cake for a gentleman called Bill who was in the prime of retirement and enjoyed in his spare time singing in an all male choir – so what better way of celebrating this than creating a birthday cake with all his fellow choir ‘boys’ (should I say men?!) singing their hearts out…with happy birthday I am sure!

The cake was a simple vanilla pod sponge with creamy buttercream…simple pleasures in life are sometimes the best.

how did Justin Bieber end up atop my Christmas Cake?

Before we start strange blog topic I know.

It is now January 4th and hopefully everyone is well rested, stuffed to the brim with sweet goodies and ready to kick their New Year’s Resolutions into 2012 with a bang! A couple of weeks ago I posted a sneak peak of the choir boys that would sit atop my Christmas cake this year and without knowing it (and completly oblivious to it until my 15yr old sister pointed it out!) I had created the pint sized pop star Justin Bieber out of sugar….not sure realistically how I feel about this but I still think they are all super cute!

So below are the final pictures of my Christmas Cake for 2011 I hope you enjoy and it gives you something to think about when you attempt a Christmas Cake in 2012!

 

Happy New Year to all the readers of this blog – I hope 2012 brings much love, happiness and cakey goodness into your lives!
