Happy birthday Simply Delish!

On 1st June this year it will be Simply Delish’s 4th birthday!

I don’t know where the time has gone. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind; fun getting to know all my customers, crazy cakes, challenging cakes, tiring, meeting deadlines and working until the early hours. I’ve met some great inspirational people along the way and, with almost 400 cakes going out of my kitchen, I can’t believe I’m still standing – just about!! Many thanks to all my lovely customers and I look forward to another crazy year of creations and sugar mountains.

Thank you!

Cake Trends: sugar people!

Hello again… is it still the summer or are we in a time warp?

I promised I’d share some more of the ‘cake trends’ that I’ve noticed over the last year, based on some of the most popular requests from my customers.

So here’s trend number two: sugar-paste figures!

These are some of my favourite cakes to make, I get very involved with the details, and obsess over tiny things like the positioning of eyebrows – it can turn a figure from scowly to friendly with just a few mm of adjustment.

Very small children love to see their favourite characters smiling at them from their cake, whilst more mature customers have requested their loved-ones in cake form, usually with the tools of their trade or hobby.

Do you know someone who would love their own little Winnie-the-Pooh or Peter Rabbit? Or, perhaps someone who would like their own sugar-paste mini-me? Sugar-work is a real head turner, and makes for very photogenic cakes, as you can see!
