Vintage style wedding cupcakes

I made a few for a trial run for my sister’s wedding. Very pleased with the way they turned out. Added them to my Kate’s Cakes Facebook page as well, who knows might start doing it as a business again!


Octonaut Alert!!

2 of my smallest Grandsons love the Octonauts and it is Jack’s 3rd birthday in September so I set about making the decorations for his Octonaut cake. Now it has to be perfect, the kids won’t settle for any old look alike so these are the toppers I have made so far. Captain Barnacles, Kwasi, Peso and Tunip! I will post pictures of the final cake once it has been completed, I am hoping it will be a show stopper so watch this space!! I am doing my sister’s wedding cake at the same time so am keeping busy!



Ruby Wedding Anniversary Card.


I made this for my cousin’s anniversary this weekend. My sister and I were her bridesmaids in 1972 and I still have the earrings she gave me on that day! Used Pink Petticoat papers, various dies and punches and ruby rhinestones and a WOC mini rose. I decorated the inside to match and made a co-ordinating box for it to go in.
