Sue Pinnick only joined as a pro-member last week and after watching one of our live sessions, decided to enter cake of the month! And boy are we glad she did ?
Not fully EGGstinct
Meghan Taylor was given free rein to create a yellow dino for a little boy, so she used this opportunity to try out the airbrush she received as a gift at Christmas for the first time! Meghan says she is happy with the results and we can understand why!
Music to your mouths
Susan Reynolds entered this musical themed design for February’s Cake of the Month. Susan made the cake for a 40th birthday and as you can see the cake features a wide variety of different musical themes such as ‘Rent’ & ‘Phantom of the Opera’.
Hungry for Handbags
Ken Willis created this handbag for this month’s entry and as you can tell by the hand holding it in the photo, it’s rather sturdy. Just don’t put your keys in it!
Fit for a Princess…
CakeFlix member Lorraine made this stunning Princess cake. The intricate design of the dress and the facial features really make this little lady stand out from the crowd.
Catch It If You Can
Summayu Anjum made this fully working remote control car cake for this month’s competition using Paul’s tutorial. It was for her son’s 9th birthday and she really wanted to surprise him with something special. In Summayu’s own words he was… “speechless…for a change!” ?
Whisking up some Wizardry
Therese May made this Harry Potter themed cake for a recent birthday. Always a popular cake design, we love the super cute Hedwig which sits proudly on top of all this hard work and attention to detail.
Cuddly, Cute and Cakey
Raluca Tircomnicu made this cake based on a customer’s Chow-chow puppy for her birthday. It travelled some 250km and arrived in one piece (which is always a plus). Adored by everyone, including birthday girl. This is all cake, except structure.
Baking a Bentley
Kate De Rousset Hall made both her first carved cake and her first car cake with this month’s entry. A 1930’s Bentley Blower, 4.5l Supercharged, this cake was covered in white Massa and then painted with sweet sticks edible art paints on a 30”x 18” board. The cake was decorated to recreate the eve of the Wellington straight at Silverstone, where the birthday boy had raced.
Describing her husband as a “hopeless” romantic! ? Gina Rickaby made her own flowers for valentines day this year using flower paste rose and leony, wafer paper chrysanths and ranunculus. We think sugar flowers are better than the real thing anyway Gina.
In The Bag
Andrea Babcock made this cake for her friend’s daughter’s 18th birthday. It is a replica of her favourite handbag making sure that all measurements were identical to the real bag. When it was presented to her, she had the real bag put next to it and you couldn’t tell them apart. Andrea was thrilled with it and it’s easy to see why!
A very puppy birthday
Viv Green made this super cute dog cake for a recent birthday. This little pup has such amazing facial features and the style of the eyes remind us of Sachiko Windbiel’s
A floral delight
Liz Hudnott made these rather exuberant sugar flowers to put on top of a fruit cake
. The cake was aptly made for the opening of a Floral Festival.
Reach for the sky
Jeannie made this wonderful Toy Story cake for her grandson’s 2nd birthday. Featuring various members from the popular films, this cake certainly goes to infinity and beyond!
A taste for the finer things
After recently making the switch from Premium, new CakeFlix Pro member Maria Bakes made this stunning Mulberry handbag cake for an 18th birthday. Maria used Paul’s moist chocolate cake as the recipe which she says is always a winner.
Sugar on the slopes
Jennifer Grocock made this cake for her daughters 21st who is a ski instructor in Switzerland. Some of the time and detail put into this one is simply outstanding.
A tasty tour
Carol Sharland created this wonderful red London bus cake. I think we can agree that the structure and characters are absolutely fantastic!
Little Red Riding Food
Astoundingly Jennifer Moran only started making cakes 7 months ago but says that she has been obsessed ever since. We don’t know about you, but we believe that obsession is really paying off! ?
Cool as ice
Ruth Wallace was commissioned by her sister to make this for her departing ice skating coach. The patterns and design of the blade are simply stunning!
Potty for cake
Angela Tomes said she “decided to have a go at this months ‘Cake of the Month’ competition” and we’re sure glad she did. Angela Tomes made her own version of Shawna McGreevy’s Antique Flower pot cake
for her 6̶0̶t̶h̶ ̶b̶i̶r̶t̶h̶d̶a̶y̶ (third 20th birthday ?)
….And the winner is….
Helen Swan was asked to make a replica of a converted railway building that was relaunching as a coffee shop and this was the cake for the party. Helen said that this is the first (and last lol) building she will ever make.
WHAT PAUL SAID?
There was an amazing range of designs this month and so hard to judge as the skills and techniques were so different. However, this month, there’s only one Winner and Paul’s chosen the Railway Building due to neat finish and attention to detail. Watch out for next month where there will be 3 prizes with the Winner receiving £200 to spend at The Cake Decorating Co.
