We were honoured to be asked to make a birthday cake for Sir Ian Mckellen, so the incredibly talented Head of the C&D Kitchen, Sally, set to work designing this beautiful cake. Complete with gold foil detail, macarons and custom meringues, this cake has it all, with the final effect being both elegant and fun.
Happy Birthday, Ian!
Whether you made it onto the guest list for the wedding of the year, or were one of the 13.1 million people in the UK who tuned in to watch Meghan & Harry’s big day, we’re sure you’ll agree that their wedding was picture perfect.
Check out this awesome cake made to celebrate the Royal Wedding last week … featuring the ‘picture perfect’ couple themselves.
When we received a fun request to help with a Moon Landing themed birthday cake we couldn’t wait to help! With ombre buttercream, hand painted moon craters and a fun little astronaut on the top this is the perfect cake for someone with a fascination with the Moon Landings – we hope that Guy loved it!
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!
Mirror, mirror on the wall… could this be the most awesome Evil Queen cake of them all? Here at Crumbs and Doilies we love to come up with bespoke designs for any theme, so when Jas got in touch with ideas for an Evil Queen cake we were excited to help, and we love the end result.
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!

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!
You can’t go near the internet without bumping into a Unicorn, at the moment, and we’re not complaining. We love creating edible manifestations of these mythical beasts, and we think they make for the cutest cakes. Lucky Harper got not one but two tiers of Unicorn goodness for her second birthday this weekend. Happy Birthday, Harper, we hope it was magical!
We love bespoke work, not least because we get to spend a few hours hand-making cute little Cars/Unicorns/Minions/(Insert current Pixar character here), but also because the whole team gets involved in the creative process. Bespoke cakes don’t always have to be huge, bank-breaking sugarpaste-heavy affairs, and sometimes a delicious dreamy buttercream cake with a few special pieces will do the trick nicely!
Our small gang of office-based cake-obsessives love to come up with bespoke ideas for any budget, and there’s no project too small for the talented decorators in the kitchen! We love this cute little Disney Cars cake we did for Sebastian a few weeks back!
