Pervy Cupcakes for those with a saucy side!!

This has to be the perfect example of the customisation possibilities of the humble cupcake. 
Ordered as a birthday present for a friend turning 50, my customer explained that the birthday boy is a bit of a perv!!!
I really enjoyed making these, although I had terrible visions of offending him but I've been reliably informed that he loved them, especially the knickers!! 

£18 (+£4 p&p if required)

Disney Cars Tow Mater

This has got to be one of my favourite cakes to make so far!!
When my oldest and dearest friend's sister got in touch to order her son Kyle a 4th birthday cake I had no idea who or what Tow Mater was but by the power of google (Greyskull!!) I educated myself and accepted the challenge. 
He was so much fun to make, although I must admit to a few hair pulling moments, his towing equipment specifically!!

So here he is, in all his glory, goofy smile and all!
Happy 4th Birthday Kyle! x

P.S.  I still haven't had a chance to watch the film but it's definitely on my list of things to do now I've made friends with Tow Mater.

Girliness Galore!!

This weeks Coloured Bubble Cakery creation was to celebrate Ellie's 10th Birthday and the dawning of her double figures!!

Ellie's mum told me it needed to be very girly,  pink and purple with flowers and hearts and also suggested some very fluffy trim that I was able to find at my local crafty shop.

Filled with delicious vanilla sponge, raspberry jam and buttercream I can't wait to scoff the slice I've been promised with a nice cup of tea! :)

Happy 10th Birthday Ellie, I hope you have a fantastic day!

International Cake Show 2011

It may not be everyone's cup of tea, perhaps a little like a car convention might be for me, but this year's International Cake Show was well worth a visit.

It was absolutely packed with cake fanatics and their wheeled suitcases (for heavier purchases) making it a bit of an obstacle course!!
packed as ever!!

Not only were there stacks of shopping opportunities but also a fantasic level of competition cakes on display.  Here are a few of my faves...
I absolutely love cakes made to look like food... Roast Beef with
all the trimmings looking good enough to tuck into!

How real does this look???!!


And if you know me then you'll know I'm a massive fan of Johnny Depp (what female isn't?) and also Tim Burton so this one was right up my street...

For the more arty people... How about a dash of Gustav Klimt?

and for all those that appreciate a lovely cuppa...
Family Guy!!!
And for something a bit different for a Wedding...

Because life IS a rollercoaster!!
Just beautiful

Obviously the shopping was a thrill too... I managed to spend a small fortune on all sorts of bits and pieces. Including a brand new product that I am really excited to try out, I will blog all about it when I get a chance to give it a go... you'll never guess what it is or what it does, or can you?  Here's a sneak peek...

The Cakery is in Print once again!!

I am thrilled to be able to tell you that The Coloured Bubble Cakery appears in the November issue of Cotswold Style Magazine!
The article is all about turning a hobby into a business and once again I felt massively complimented to be asked to be featured.
For anyone out there that hasn't managed to get there hands on a copy, here's the article... (you'll need to scroll right as its such a huge image!)

Needless to say, my dad was as proud as punch!!  :) 
He tells me that he reads my blog from his sunny home in Corfu... so just a quick shout out to Mr T and Sally... love you both loads! xxx

For all the Fence Builders out there...

This cake was created to celebrate Brian's 70th Birthday. 
My client told me that Brian is a fence builder and that she would like his cake designed around that theme.
OK, I thought, where do I start with this one??  Well with a big fat vanilla and jam sponge for starters!
Man buildng fence...hmmm?  Well how about man having a tea break from building a lovely white picket garden fence?? 
I've been told it went down a storm.
Here's the cake...
