Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: This was a very personal cake for me to make, as it was for my dad's 80th Birthday. I wanted it to show his life and interests. As my mum had died only a couple of months previously I wanted to include her but not to be morbid or sad. So I decided to make models of our family sat on the garden wall of the family home, but when we were children & our parents were young. It was great fun to make and I tried to make the models as true to life as I could. It was truly a labour of love. Plus my dad loved it!!

What are you most proud of? It was the first time I had stacked a tiered cake and it worked perfectly.
