Hottest day of the year… Sweating at the keyboard of our laptop… And yet a Minion in a fur trimmed coat wins June’s competition! 😀

Another totally ace competition to wrap up June’s efforts! And what an amazing bunch of cakes people shared with us…

First of all the winner… What a dude! Even though we have been plagued by Minions for years… FOR YEARS! This one arrived on our doorstep just at the right, crafty time, what with the new movie! Both the we and the public could not resist the charms of Stuart, made to perfection by Melanie from The Custom Cakery. Congratulations girl! xx

– But before The Custom Cakery took the crown, we were in awe of Michelle Pattinson’s work, from VS Cakes. Made for her son’s 18th birthday, this is one mega Rugby World Cup England ball and trophy! Even the grass is edible… It’s made out of coconut chips FCOL. Send us a bit Michelle!! The trophy was made from fondant and modeling chocolate, airbrushed with gold, mixed with… wait for it… vodka! Which is, quite frankly, right up our street!

– Bluebird-cakes continued the charm offensive, with this work of Mr Peabody and Sherman, which screams awesomeness! Just check out the talent… Absolutely smooth, and such professional characterization.

– An absolutely outstanding cake, which was extremely popular with our “likers”, came from Aboutcake. This is one hell of a chocolate fudge cake, with hand painted… yes!… hand painted!… tattoo sleeve of Marvel comic dudes! Requested by a lovely girl, for her boyfriend’s 21st birthday (who also happens love boxing… can’t you tell?!), it took Claire 3 days to complete.
It seriously gave us tattoo envy. We’ll be popping off to the parlour soon! 11709510_974226442597703_3099254251063518199_n

 

– And last but not least on our list of contenders… Gaz’s Cakery’s GORGEOUS 30th celebration cake! We abolsutely adore this on so many levels. The artistry, the finish… the flouncy bottom tier… and of course, the board, covered with sheet music and pictures from the lady’s favourite musicals… A lover of dance, music and the aforementioned stage extravaganzas, quite frankly, this cake speaks to our inner girl. We LOVE! 11222646_974228572597490_436941781219368519_nAnd there we have it for another month…
