This March saw the 10th birthday of our favourite animated series Simon’s cat. In-case, unlike us, you have never lost hours of your evening to this addictive cartoon, let us introduce you! Simon’s cat follows the adventures of a mischievous and often hilarious fat white cat and his ever suffering owner Simon. Over the last 10 years their youtube following has grown to an impressive 4 million followers and what better way to celebrate than with cake! Here’s a sneak peak of the cake that we made for the party.
Take a look at our behind the scenes video here to see the work that went into this creation. Focusing on the amazing hand painted pictures and the making of the Simon’s Cat 3D model on top. If you haven’t seen any of the hilarious animations over on the Simon’s Cat channel, you MUST MUST MUST! – take a look here to see just what you have been missing out on!
Take a look at these awesome cupcakes made to celebrate the making of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, which is out in cinemas this month. Adapted from the best selling novel, this is the story of a book club in Guernsey which was formed during the German occupation in the Second World War. Featuring hand made potato peel pies, gin bottles, letters, and printed book covers, we think that these super fun cupcakes fit the theme perfectly!

When Barry M launched three new fabulous eye shadow palettes they decided to celebrate in the best way possible… with cake! Our decorators came up with three unique designs based on the packaging and colours of the new Fall in Love, Meteor Storm and Crown Jewels palettes – can you guess which is which? We hope the lucky recipients loved them as much as we did!
As usual team C&D have began thinking about Christmas far earlier than is probably acceptable, complete with the accompanying festive soundtrack! (for inspiration purposes of course) However, luckily for you guys this means that we have loads of time to come up with an amazing Christmas offering.

In addition to our standard offering, we also specialise in really amazing, original corporate cupcakes and can add any logo you like to our fun festive selection. If you don’t want to ferry them all over London, we also arrange deliveries, so we’ve got your corporate gifting covered! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info!
If you’ve been following Crumbs & Doilies for a while, you’ll know we love a challenge! As you’d expect, we were pretty excited when iconic British Beauty Brand Barry M (wow, try saying that ten times really fast) asked us to help them celebrate 35 whole years in the make-up game! Of course for a brand as unique as Barry M, not just any old cake would do. We created these bespoke colour-matched Strawberry Milkshake Ombré cakes, inspired by pieces from Barry M’s new collections. We created 35 identical mini-masterpieces for Barry M to send to some very lucky recipients. Happy Birthday Barry M – here’s to the next 35 years!
Who needs to catch them all, when you could just put them all on your cake? Such is the motto of Maxime, who prefers his Pokémon to be of the edible variety. This double-stacked cake is finished with silky smooth buttercream, with sugarpaste relief details and 3D sugarpaste models. Happy Birthday Maxime!
We’ve been doing amazing cakes for Athena and her daughters for years, and we know that whenever she gets in touch we’re going to be able to create something really fun. The brief this year was for an enchanting Snow White Cake. As always, Athena gave us an idea of what she had in mind, we drafted some ideas, sent her a quick sketch and she left the rest to us. We think the resulting cake is pretty magical!
We love a bride who knows what she wants, especially when what she wants is a delicious, ridiculous, drippy, decadent, triple-stacked monster of a wedding cake! Alice had her heart set on a combination of Cookies & Cream, Strawberry Milkshake and Unicorn flavours for her epic cake, and who were we to argue? We adore this mouth-watering masterpiece, and we hope Alice and her lucky wedding guests do, too.
We admit it, we’re kind of Harry Potter nerds here at C&D, so when Tej asked us to come up with a Harry Potter cake for a mega-fan, we were all over it! We love the magical, chaotic Diagon Alley, and thought that incorporating it into the design would make for a super fun cake. Our clever decorators hand-made and painstakingly hand-painted each shop-front, creating a very tasty diorama of the real thing. The cake is topped with a (very shiny!) chocolate frog, Bellatrix Lestrange’s wand, the Marauders map, and a big mug of Butterbeer, of course.
