Cake, cake and more cake!

Winter is a busy time for birthdays in our family and here are a few of the most recent creations:

My nephew was 3 in December and requested a Peppa cake for his Peppa Pig Party...





My niece turned 5 and had a clown/ circus-skills party. She requested a "Chocolate-Clown-Cake"...




And for my Mum's birthday we had a white-chocolate and berries cake...
