More Mr Men Cupcakes!

Mr Men CupcakesA little casual Googling tells us that the Mr Men Characters were first brought to life in 1971… that makes us feel incredibly old, but is also a testament to how timeless these moralistic little guys (and ladies – let’s not forget the Little Misses!) are. Check out this super fun mix of hand-piped and 3D modeled Mr’s we did for Clara this weekend!

 

10 Wicked Years!

Wicked Cake 1

This September saw 10 years since Wicked, the story of our favourite gravity-defying green lady, first graced the stage in the West End. What better way to celebrate 10 Wicked years than with a sparkly green cake? We gave our classic Unicorn Cake a wicked makeover so that it was greener than Elphaba, added some glitter, green meringues and voila!

We hope the cast and crew LOVED the cake, and we wish them another 10 Wicked years!

Custom Olympics Cupcakes

Olympic Cupcakes Who knew that four years could pass by so quickly? It feels like just yesterday that Olympic fever struck our lovely city. Now it’s Rio’s turn, and we’re super excited… finally some coverage of professional trampolining on National Television! The guys at Seven Dials PR are excited too, apparently, as they commissioned us to create these Olympic themed cupcakes to send to their lucky clients.

Custom Doctor’s Coat Cake

Ducktor CakeThe lovely Lucy came to us for a retirement cake for her dad (prof McGurk to you!) and wanted us to include a nod to his excellent fashion sense! We hand-painted the design from his favourite tie onto vanilla sugarpaste, which encases a delicious Red Velvet sponge. Happy retirement, Prof. McGurk!

 

Monsters, Inc Cake

Monsters Inc CakeThe Monsters, Inc movie may be almost 16 years old (I know, right!) but it’s appeal is timeless. We recently did this scarily awesome cake for Hala’s 7th Birthday party! The monstrous cake features hand-made sugarpaste models of the whole gang, lurking outside the many doors of Monstropolis. Happy Birthday, Hala!

Octonauts Cupcakes

Octonauts

If you don’t have a child (or you aren’t) under the age of 12, you probably don’t know who the Octonauts are…. but even if you don’t, you can’t deny that they’re pretty cool dudes. What’s not to love about anthropomorphic animals who live under the sea and go on rad adventures? Nothing! Here’s some super cute Octonauts themed cupcakes we did for a, you guessed it, Octonauts themed birthday party!

Bespoke Dinosaur Cake

Dino Cake

We’re no stranger to Dinosaur Cakes here at C&D Towers – we’ve had many requests for all things dinosaur, and for us, it never gets old. This birthday cake, for Jurassic enthusiast James, is our favourite yet! Each tier is hand-painted and adorned with cut-out, painted sugarpaste Dinos. We especially love the intrepid little Jeep, rather alarmingly positioned between an active volcano and a hungry T-Rex…

 

Disney Princess/Wedding Cupcakes… of course!

Disney Wedding 1

What do you get a grown-up Disney fan to celebrate her upcoming nuptials? Wedding themed Disney Princess cupcakes, obviously! Our brief was to put an elegant spin on some Disney classics, and we love the end result.

Hydrangea Blue & Lilac Wedding Cupcakes

Hydrangea Blue 1

Despite appearances (drizzly cold June days, anyone!?) Summer is creeping in slowly, and that means it’s WEDDING SEASON! We love how different all of our brides and grooms-to-be are, and how they each have a unique vision for their big day. Emily sent us photos of the beautiful Hydrangeas they’d arranged for the day, and we did the rest. Congrats Emily!

Minion Madness

Minion Party

Everybody loves Minions, right? Well I don’t think anybody loves them more than Tristan, who may have broken a world record for “Most Minion Cakes at a Birthday Party” this weekend!

American Football Cupcakes!

American Football 1

Here’s some fun American Football Cupcakes we did for Max and Matthieu’s 9th Birthday, complete with sugarpaste trophies, chocolate footballs and buttercream grass. Happy Birthday boys!

Hand-piped Books & The City Cupcakes

Books & the City

We’ve had the pleasure of doing many an order for the guys at Simon & Schuster over the years and they always give us the freedom to create something really fun, whatever the occasion. Sara-Jade sent us the poster for their Books & The City event, outlined a few key elements that she wanted us to include and then allowed us to do our thing. We think the end result is pretty great!

Marine Biology Cake!

Under the Sea 4

Here’s a closer look a very cool Marine Biology inspired cake we did this weekend! We’re not sure about you, but personally we find sharks a little more er… palatable, when they’re of the sugarpaste variety!

Fun Corporate Cake Alert!

LinkedIn 4

Who said corporate cakes had to be boring? We’re big fans of this fun, tiered cake we did on behalf of the team at LinkedIn, as a gift for the guys at Unilever to congratulate them on an epic number of LinkedIn followers!

Hand-piped Tupac & Biggie Cupcakes!

Tupacs 3

Looking for a creative way to ask your bestie to be your Made of Honour? Jade commissioned us to create these bad-ass Tupac & Notorious B.I.G themed cupcakes to ask her best mate to be her (M)ade (O)f (H)onour. We’re not really sure how frienemies Tupac and Biggie really fit in here, but who are we to argue with a piping request this cool?

We hope she said yes!
