Celebrating a 21st birthday with a traditional design ‘key of the door’. A key of the door was presented as the gateway to the future. We think the future’s sweet for this birthday girl.
You can’t have failed to notice that a big birthday has been celebrated this week. We may not have got the call to make a cake for HM Queen Elizabeth but we did get to make lots of cakes for other people celebrating big birthdays this week. This is one of our favourite selections because it features Oreo cupcakes and gold decoration. So, you see, these cupcakes are fit for a Queen – or, at least, a Queen for a day.
Sometimes, when a big celebration is being planned, it’s difficult to decide on the type and size of cake you need. You’ll wonder if you have enough cake, whether it will stand out on a buffet table heaving with enough snacks and savouries to feed a mob.
Sometimes a single tier cake just won’t fit the bill, no matter how big it is. Adding extra tiers can provide greater impact and another bonus is that each layer can be flavoured differently to give your guests more choice. The cake featured here was for a 21st birthday celebration but can easily be adapted for an anniversary or other big celebration.
The flavours used here were chocolate and vanilla – a delicious combination.
As you can probably imagine, we get lots of orders for cake and cake colours vary right across the colour spectrum. In recent months, though, one colour has risen above all others to become the firm favourite – the colour pink.
Now, obviously, we all know that pink is the official colour for little girls and stands for sugar and spice and all things nice but this surge in requests for pink coloured cakes also led us to think about what other meanings the colour pink might have and we came up with these gems:
Pink is a delicate colour that means sweet, nice, playful, cute, romantic, charming, feminine, and tenderness. ‘In the pink’ means healthy. Tickled pink means being happy and content. While both red and pink represent love, the colour red represents heat and passion; the colour pink represents romance and charm. Hot pink is used to communicate playfulness, while light pink is used to communicate tenderness.
So, you see, it’s understandable that people like pink cake because it conjures up sweetnessand affection.
