Cakes Glorious Cakes - 2018

The cakes at this years Cake International were spectacular again. 

The life sized Harry and Meghan cake has been updated to show  Meghan carrying a baby book and Harry wearing a union flag and carrying a baby bag. Note the tiny teddy sticking out of the bag.

Harry featured again along with his mother Lady Diana and his brother William. A deserving gold winner.

We also had dogs, gorillas and eagles.

Another Gold Winner. Love how the dog is licking at the French Fancies. 

A Gorilla clutching her baby in her arms.

You can even see the ruffling of the eagle's feathers.

Laurel & Hardy made an appearance in Black and White and won Gold in their category.

Shoes and handbags good enough to eat.

There was magic and imagination with a Sorting Hat;

 An Outlander Cake with Jamie and Claire reaching out to touch the stone circle.


And an array of Discworld characters including:-

Cohen the Barbarian

The Librarian

The Luggage


And even the Late Sir Terry Pratchett made an appearance riding 
Great A'Tuin

This month marks a 100 years since Armistice Day and it was humbling to see how the bakers commemorated this auspicious date and honoured our fallen.  

Another Gold cake that won 2nd place.

Below is the well deserved 1st place.

A simple white cake with the only splash of colour the red poppy on the soldier's uniform as he bows his head and the poppy on the cross on the side of the cake. Along with lines from the poems; 
'For the Fallen', and 'In Flanders Fields'. 
A quiet cake that speaks to the heart. 
So deserving of Gold and first place.

Lest we forget.
