simple butterfly cupcakes

buttercream swirl with pink butterfly, for my daughters school fete

pretty and pink - review

As I have mentioned before, I love all the comments I recieve about my cakes. Imagine how pleased I was when Ella's mummy had reviewed my cake on her blog!!!! Below is what she wrote.

'On Saturday 13th, my eldest daughter turned 5. About a week before her birthday I spotted a post on twitter which, for some unknown reason, I felt the need to click on the link… It took me to the wonderful blog of Rakhee from Leicester and a whole host of adorable cake images!
I just couldn’t help myself. I had to buy one for Ella!

When asked what I wanted, I was so vague… “Pink, Ella, 5″ was about all I managed to get out. I left the finer details in the hands of Rakhee…

Imagine my delight when I arrived in Leicester to see this beautiful work of art. It couldn’t have been more suited to Ella, her personality and her party theme. The attention to detail was just stunning. You can see for yourself!

Oh, and I must add, that this was DELICIOUS! I don’t really like cake. I liked this cake. I might just order one on a weekly basis to treat myself.

If you’ve got a special occasion coming up, and you’re in the Midlands, Rahkee’s cakes are a must!!! '

To read her wonderful comments in full have a look on her blog page
