PBSS Members' Novelty Cakes for August...
A taste for travel
Kate Skelton made this fantastic travellers cake for her Dad's 70th birthday. Perhaps a more sensible approach to a suitcase than Paul's standing Wunderlust cake, but very well finished right down to the sand or is it brown sugar?
A concerto of cake
Christine made this fantastic Piano cake using Paul's tutorial.
"Yes, that's it!" said the Hatter with a sigh, "it's always cake time!"
If you follow us on Facebook then you may recognise this absolutely phenomenal Alice in Wonderland themed cake made by the very talented Karen Boyle. Not one we have on the site yet, but this one would certainly be very hard to live up to.
A flower pot pudding
Pamela Green made this for her daughter-in-law's birthday using Shawna McGreevy's antique flower pot cake tutorial.
The fast and the delicious
Pro member Jan Ransley made this fantastic Formula One birthday cake. Some fantastic shapes here!! I had to have a double take as it looked so close to Paul's formula 1 racing car. What an excellent job and I wonder if Netty managed to get a lift in one for her 80th!
Snooker and sugarpaste
This fantastic snooker table cake was made by Ken Willis. You can read about how a horrific accident led to Ken's career in the cake industry in his cake journey blog.
Sweet and sewful
Semra Ertuş Cömert made this cake for her best friends birthday. Look at the incredibly intricate designs!
A Spoonful of Sugar
This fantastic Mary Poppins cake made by Julie Rogerson (another Pro member) has a hexagon base of chocolate mud cake (yum 😋). Mary Poppins was a favourite of Julie's as a child and her model of the famous nanny is truly spectacular. Julie wrote all about her experience in entering Cake International in an earlier blog.
Pro member Nadine Waghorn made this beautiful cake for a christening. The design on the pram and bear are absolutely meticulous.
Rosanne Ferragamo Millett made this roasted Kalua pig cake for a family Luau. We had to do a double take to make sure this was a cake and not the real thing!!
Thanks for all the images and videos you have all sent in over the last month, there was so much to choose from and we look forward to seeing all your efforts for August!
