London birthday cake

London Birthday cake

This is a recent creation of ours, and as the title explains it’s all about London!

A beautiful cake that symbolises’ the best the capital has to offer.

It’s decorated with beautiful iced run-out’s of various London landmarks such as The London Eye, Tower Bridge, St Pauls to name a few.

The balloons add a nice splash of colour to this cake making it a perfect celebration cake.

The cake filling was a delicious victoria sponge layered with vanilla butter cream and raspberry jam, could you ask for more?!

With the jubilee celebrations just around the corner I thought I’d share with you this wonderful crown jewels cake.

Using the striking colours from the crown itself this cake makes the perfect center piece for jubilee parties.

However your celebrating, I hope this crown jewels cake inspires you to have a great jubilee party!
