I was lucky enough to attend a course yesterday to learn some new skills from a lovely lady called Jenny who makes the most amazing cakes. I’m particularly pleased with the mini roses although my painting skills need some work! But always great to learn some top tips..Cath Kidston Cupcakes

Sufer Chick Cake

Sufer Chick CakeThis was a fun cake to do for a surfer chick. A rich chocolate bottom tier decorated  to represent the sea and the top layer a vanilla sponge with vanilla butter cream and homemade strawberry jam.  Handmodelled figures sitting on the beach topped the cake off, complete with surf board.

And today’s cake is…

I was locked out of the kitchen today whilst the baking was going on, and I can see why now!

This little fellow was the decoration on a lovely chocolate birthday cake that was covered in Chocolate fondant icing.

Wishing you a very Happy Birthday Mair from all of us at Little Black Hen! x
