About

Wonderful cakes with imaginative design, attention to detail and flair which not only look superb but taste absolutely amazing – that is my passion.

I started baking & decorating cakes about 15 years ago, much to the astonishment of the rest of my family, as before that I had always been a “freezer – microwave – plate” type of cook!!

My mam gave me her recipe for the fruit cake she used when she made mine & my two sister’s wedding cakes, so I tried it one Christmas, and it was delicious. The next year I decided to experiment with decorating the cake too, and it went from there.

I still use mam’s recipe for fruit cake – I have never found one to better it – I call it “Betty’s Fruit Cake” in her memory as sadly we lost her last year. I’ll post the recipe if anyone would like to give it a try. I take a cake into work every Christmas, and let’s just say you shouldn’t drive home after having a piece……but everyone keeps asking when the cake will be arriving, and there is never any left!!

I have now decided to take things one step further from just being something I love doing and recently had my website designed – www.cakesindividuallyiced.co.uk. I have called it Individually Iced because that is how I work – all my cakes are designed specifically for the individual recipient. Have a look at my post “The Edible Tractor” and you will see what I mean.

I have quite a few “individual” projects coming up over the coming months, so I’ll keep you updated on my progress….

  2. Hi Fiona, thanks for this, it is great to get such positive comments. I’m very new to the world of “blogging” but think it is great to have an outlet to share my cake “experiments” with. Hope you like the next few coming up….
