Cakes do not always have to be delicately piped or covered in sugar flowers, they can be fun and represent an interest or hobby.
The cakes can be fun aimed at the individuals concerned.
The only interest for many men is the car they dream of owning. This is sponge covered in sugarpaste but it could just as easily have been made of fruit cake.
Made for the local Sea Cadet Corp for their yearly inspection this was a large sponge covered in sugarpaste.
A full picture of the previous cake. The hat on top was a smaller cut and shaped sponge to represent the Navy cap. The top model was handcrafted in icing and could be kept as a momento of the event.
A Christening or Baptism cake does not have to be made with a religious theme though many are.
