  • Red Velvet Chocolate Cake

    red chocolate cake

    Cake Dreams is excited to announce a new flavour and more importantly, a new colour cake. Red Velvet is, as the name suggests, a red cake. But better still, it's a red chocolate cake! Based on a traditional recipe from the southern United States, Red Velvet is a deliciously moist layered cake with a unique and funky tone. More palette for your palate, as it were.The basic list of ingredients...  View This »

  • Cakes for Birthday Boys

    Dinosaur Cake

    Don't get me wrong, I like a handbag. I like shoes even more. But as cakes go a handbag is not the most creative. So I am overjoyed to have recently been commissioned to make some new, different & fun cakes - for boys!! Lets hear it for the boys! First of my new cakes - BUGS! A Black Beetle (actually 2, the 1st was for a production company who made a show called BUGS!. The 2nd was for a...  View This »

  • Shoes & Handbags Cakes

    Louis Vuitton Handbag Cake

    Extremely popular cake designs are shoes & handbags. Chanel handbags, Juicy Couture handbags but most especially Louis Vuitton! Also shoes - women love shoes (I love shoes too!). I fell in love with the idea of lime green Louboutin shoes that I was commissioned to make recently - that's lime green with the red sole. I want a real pair for myself! But back to the cakes - Louboutin shoes & a...  View This »

  • Cake Dreams - How It Works, At Its Best

    personalised cake north london

    August has been a month of Grown-up cakes. Cakes for Adults are always a fantastic creative challenge. Everything is posiible. For example I've made a Pinball Machine cake, Bowl of Salad and Bowl of Chips cakes, the Bathtub from 'Scarface', and one of my favourites- three Flying Pigeons (like the flying ducks circa 1950)!  This last weekend I was commissioned for two unique cakes.  The first...  View This »

  • Doctor Who Comes to North London - as a Cake!

    doctor who cake

    I wait forever to make a Doctor Who cake and two come along at once! The first one was for a boy in north London, who had a Dalek last year. This year-a Sonic Screwdriver cake! ( I love it when kids see the cakes & desperately want to touch or in this case hold the cake in their hands!) The second was for a woman turning 50! A Dalek old-style. Unfortunately the cake was a surprise because I...  View This »

  • Christening Cake and Birthday Cake Celebration

    christening cake and birthday cake

    It seems that summer is a time for Christenings & Birthdays combined. Most often Christening cakes are very simple design. Plain white decorations-flowers, baby shoes, Bibles. Maybe a little blue or pink accent. But I have been lucky this summer! The Christenings have been celebrated along with the birthdays! One for a girl & one for a boy. The girl's was a Bible with baby shoes & for her...  View This »

  • The Corporate Logo Cake / Cancer Research UK

    race for life cake

    I've done many "corporation" cakes over the years at Cake Dreams for companies all over London. Basically cakes with corporate logos. Pretty much as dull as it sounds (so dull I often don't take photos of them). But this weekend I was very pleased to be able to make a cake for Cancer Research UK for their fundraising efforts for their Race For Life. In the past I've made cakes for Carr-Gomm in...  View This »

London is such a magnificent city and looked its best on the Royal Wedding Day.  Cake Dreams was definitely caught up in the excitement with our own Royal Wedding Cake, made for a 'royal wedding party' hosted by some of my American clients in north London: a 3 tier cake decorated with bunting, initials of the bride and...  View This »
