Tiffany & Co cookies

A few weeks ago, I was asked by Tiffany & Co to make small cookies for their QueensPlaza shop.  I then received an email from one of their customers telling me how much she loved the cookie she had at the shop and if I could make the same cookies for her bridal shower.  How could I say no?

Racing Car cake

I'm not crazy about character cakes.  I think it is more fun and imaginative to take elements from a character and interpret it in another way.  This cake was created for a little boy who is a huge fan of Lightning McQueen.  Instead of modelling the cars from "The Cars", I made 'grown-up' race cars with the cartoon eyes and mouth of the movie characters.    

 Plus matching cupcakes.

This is the lovely message I received from the little boy's mum:

Thank you so much for my sons wonderful birthday cake. It completed his special day of turning 4. He was in absolute awe when he saw the racing cars around the base of the cake, he thought it was magical. It was a beautifully decorated cake, I couldn't have asked for anything more. The individual cupcakes were also a huge hit, each with their own individual race car on top. Once cut the cake was quickly devoured, it was rich, moisture and delicious. Everybody was raving about it, who could blame them, it exceeded my expectations. We'll only ever order our cakes from you because of the quality of ingredients used along with your exception talent.

Thank you for your care and attention to detail. I'll look forward to your next creation.
