Shimmy, shimmy, ya

Rachael Green made this absolutely mesmerising cake whilst on a course with Carla Puig at Zoe’s Fancy Cakes in Leeds. Rachael says if she hadn’t become a Cakeflix Pro and joined the Display team for Cake International, she doesn’t think she would have had the confidence to go on this course.

Crystal Palace

Armoured Horse

Mark Lawton did a fantastic job of emulating Dot Klerck’s very popular Armoured Horse Cake, which you can also learn via the CakeFlix website.

Flying high

water and wings cake
Suzie Bunner was given free rein when designing this birthday cake. The design was based on the birthday boy’s (or man’s) company logo of angels, wings and water and it certainly catches the eye.


Each and every entry this month was amazing and it really wasn’t easy choosing a winner. When looking at so many great cakes of a similar level, I then started to look at the presentation and photography. It’s brilliant seeing all these lovely members cakes coming through, it really makes my job so amazing. However, the hard bit is choosing a winner. For the attention to detail and giving such a realistic effect as well as great presentation it’s the lovely Violin by Joy Ruddell.
