Long-time no post!

We have had such a busy time at Angels Cupcakes lately and our larger, celebration cakes have really taken off! I have posted quite a few pictures on Facebook so do check them out!

First let me get you up to speed on what’s been happening since the last entry.

We have had 2 classes at our new venue; Claremont Farm, a full intensive learning day and a cupcake perfection class. The new venue is great because they have a professional kitchen which we can utilise and give more extensive demo’s etc.

This slideshow shows the ladies hard at work on the intensive class. I am always amazed at the beautiful creations they produce.  Our next class is on Sunday and following that we are having a ‘Midsummer nights Dream’ themed cupcake class for Halloween instead of the traditional pumpkins/witches type decorating- route!

Whilst we are on the subject of Halloween below (& in slide show above) is a picture of a Spooky Gothic castle cake that we made for a Gothic-themed 30th Birthday party recently! The cake was a surprise but apparently went down a treat!

'30th Birthday cake for a Gothic-themed party'

This cake was very popular on our Facebook site and occasion cakes generally, as I mentioned earlier, seem to be making a come-back! But we still love Cupcakes too,  our Christmas Cupcake workshop sold out in September but we are really looking forward to seeing the creations our students produce on the Halloween class first! I will keep you posted! Check out our other cakes on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/AngelsCupcakesUK

Hi, just a quick post to share a couple of photos of two of our recent, more unusual, cakes with you!

We have been really busy lately with various projects such as planning our next workshop and full day-course and designing cakes for peoples occasions and weddings, plus we are busy planning which products we will be selling at the July Summer Fayre in Port Sunlight and testing new flavours. So it really is all go!

Below is a picture of a cake which I actually designed for my brothers birthday, it isn’t very often I get to really go to town on a design with a bottomless budget and as he is such a huge fan of the stars and astronomy the cake was themed around that!

The cake surface was mostly airbrushed because I wanted to create the ‘Galaxy’ effect so I used various colours including purple, blue, black, white and red!

The planets were made from various coloured fondants and glitters! Below is a picture which shows the planets more closely!

I was really pleased with the overall effect and my Brother was also very happy, he was reluctant to cut into the cake because he liked it so much but all his birthday visitors were pleased that he did! The cake was a Victoria sponge with a blend of strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant conserve filling and vanilla buttercream with a layer of fresh sliced strawberries!

Below is another cake we produced recently. This was a Casino themed cake for a 10 year-old girl who had recently attended her Grandmothers casino-themed 70th birthday party and wanted something similar!

The cake was a vanilla and pecan sponge with maple buttercream and plain white fondant with coloured fondant playing card suit symbols. The playing cards and casino chips were made from edible pastillage both of which were brought to life with Rice paper prints. The numbers on the playing cards represented the birthday girls birth date and age, and the numbers on the dice also made 10 🙂

Hope you enjoyed looking at our cakes!

For anyone who doesn’t follow us on Twitter or Facebook, just a quick post to show you one of our latest creations! The Ginger Cat Cake complete with cola flavoured whiskers and reflective collar!

We will give you an update soon regarding our latest news and our test kitchen findings from this week but for now I will leave you with Charlie! 🙂

Just a quick blog post to share a picture or two of a novelty cake which was definitely a first for me!

Hope you like them as much a my client did!

I am so ashamed that it has been so long since my last blog, disgraceful! I can only say it’s kind of a good thing because I have just been so busy lately. Particularly busy with celebration cakes at the moment and wedding order enquiries! I also have a family wedding next year which I am helping to arrange so lots of very exciting stuff at the moment, well if you like weddings and cakes it is!

Below is a picture of a valentine theme cake. It’s a fairly simple design with embossing and a sheen. It is hard to notice the sheen on these pictures so I have given you a close up! The filling is buttercream and beautiful strawberry conserve!

Anyways lots to do today and a ‘boob’ cake to finish, will post pictures asap!
