These fantastic cakes are alive with cute and cuddly, sporty and adventurous, scary and spooky characters that will delight kids of all ages.

Choose from irresistible, child-appealing designs that range from Sketchbook, Computer, and Racing Car to Horrible Bug, Princess, Fishing Pond, and Fairy Town. There are even microwave cakes that cook in four minutes, designs that start with store-bought cakes, and ones specially created so that kids can get in on the fun and help decorate, too.

About Carol Deacon

Carol originally trained in Graphic Design and worked for a number of years as an art director in advertising. Then one day a friend asked her to make her a birthday cake…

Sally the dear friend in question, had for reasons that have been lost in the mists of time been saddled with the unfortunate nickname of “frog” whilst she and Carol were at school. Carol discovered a packet of sugarpaste in her local supermarket and created an experimental icing frog.

Carol was unsure at this time how sugarpaste would react to different situations. Her then flatmates became used to seeing the frog prototype appearing in various places around the flat – In the fridge (he became gooey). On the windowsill (he began to fade). In the freezer (he just didn’t).

In the end he just vanished – Carol suspects he came to a sticky end – the victim of a hungry flatmate after a night out on the town but his descendant graced Sally’s birthday cake with aplomb and Carol embarked on a new hobby.

After a few months of baking and decorating cakes, Carol left advertising and went to work at Jane Asher’s Cake shop in Chelsea for a year.

She also began to enter competitions to see how her work compared to others around the country and promptly won a car in a BBC Good Food Magazine cake decorating competition with a saucy seaside cake.
