The Fat Controller's Cake

Thomas is a very useful engine. He's also now a very delicious madeira cake. Moist, spongey, jam-filled yummy-ness. Touring the sugar covered hills of the Island of Sodor. Who's eaten Annie & Clarabel?

Trick or Treat!?!

You could wait until Christmas to enjoy some delicious Gingerbread. But why deny yourself something you and the whole family will enjoy. We know the housing market sucks, but as your mortgage prices soar why not enjoy some gingerbread. All spookily made, baked and decorated by hand, at home. A unique gift for the family to enjoy!

You don't have to live to 80 to have a cake this delicious.

Moist Madeira cake with edible, sugar-craft flowers, yep it's classy, we can spell sophisticated, and we can bake it too. You don't have to live til your eighty to enjoy a cake this delicious, but if you do it'll be worth it.

Death by Chocolate

Moist and delicious chocolate sponge, with chocolate ganache filling, chocolate buttercream and white and milk chocolate roses. Okay you'll hear your arteries hardening as you eat this. But if you've gotta die, best do it with a smile on your face.

I would just like to say that no customers died in the eating of this cake, go get some benecol and all will be well.

Elmo's Sesame Treat (Lactose Free)

Hey, hey, hey, everything's A-okay when you get your cakes from KarmaCake. This vanilla and buttercream sponge cake was especially made for a four year old who's lactose intollerant and contains no milk. What it lacks in fat and calcium, it more than makes up in yummy-ness. Tickle-me Elmo!

Better than a Krusty-Krab!

Moist vanilla, victoria spongeBOB, buttercream and thick, sweet icing. A fantastic treat from Bikini-Bottom. Perfect for any teen, and big enough for the whole family to enjoy.

Golden Snitch

Deathly Hallows? No way, there's nothing deathly about this Golden Snitch cake made for Tony's 16th Birthday, with edible wings and puzling mottoe. Abra-ca-de-licious vanilla sponge and tropical fruit jam, covered in white chocolate with gold shimmer. Yum.

The Muffins are back... and bigger than ever.

The muffins are back! We've improved on the recipe and with our new muffin cases (fresh from the Southend Garden Show) they're bigger than ever. Our Triple Chocolate Muffins have more choc-chips and our Blueberry Muffins now come with a crumbly coating and loads more juicy blueberries. We hope you like them as much as we do.

Forget about the cakes for a second...

We don't say it enough but some things are more important than cakes. We were back at the Epping Boot Sale today after our brief stint in Southend. It was great to get back in touch with our regulars and meet some new people. It's not all about the money after all. One of the people we bumped into was a really smart and genuine kid called Cody who apart from impressing us with his wasp fighting skills. Impressed us more when we heard about his mum's recent fight with cancer and his impressive efforts to raise money for cancer charities in the local area. Thankfully mum is well on the road to recovery and Cody is proving that despite what they say in the media, there are some really great and genuine kids out there. Watch the clip below. And please don't hesitate in seeing Cody play live if you get the chance.

Naughty but nice...

We know it's not all about weddings and birthdays at KarmaCake. We can bake cakes for any occasions, including hen-nights, graduations, anniversaries and even divorces. Yep, it's a bit off the wall but cakes are fun and we can create cakes for any celebration or family get-together. Above is one of our designs for a hen-night. I think the picture says it all. Naughty, but nice...

Take a look in the gallery to the right to see what other designs we can personalise for your party.

Claire & Matthew's Wedding Cupcakes

Congratulations to Claire & Matthew who celebrated their wedding this week. Above is a close-up of some of the cupcakes on show at their Wedding Reception at The Old Rectory, a full size picture of the Wedding Cupcakes can be seen in our gallery on the right-hand side of the screen.

For Claire & Matthew we built the cakes around a design they saw on the internet and created 100 Madeira Cupcakes. Each topped with flower-paste flowers and blossoms in pastel colours. The Cupcakes are wrapped in Filigree Paper Wrappers. For the top-tier we made a 7" Vanilla Sponge, full of fluffy goodness. This was topped with a posey of real flowers.

We're moving...

We're moving to new pastures, demand from our last visit to the Toll House Boot Sale means we're leaving Dunton for the greener pastures of Epping from this Sunday. The good news is that it means we can all have a bit of a lay in on Sundays as the Toll House is open from 11am til 5pm instead of Dunton's stupid O'clock start. We're a bit sad to be laving Dunton and all the regulars we have met but hope that some of you might follow us a few miles up the M11. We hope to see you there in future.

The market is located at Toll House Field, Woodside, Thornwood, Epping, CM16 6LG.

Anyone for tennis?

With the nonsense of Wimbledon starting monday it seems only right for us to be selling more delicious Strawberries with cool, and fresh whipped double-cream. If that information doesn't have you salivating we've got another treat. Okay it might be a bit of a seventies throwback but Adrian has created another fantastic Black Forest Gateau. Rich Chocolate sponge with Black Cherry and Vanilla Creme filling. Sprinkled with Milk Chocolate Vermicilli and topped with Black Cherries. Lovelly! We will be selling this either by the slice with whipped cream or in a slightly different loaf cake which you can take home and enjoy.

Size isn't everything, no, no, really.

We've all heard it before, size isn't everything. Well this has been proved right today because the Dunton Boot Sale was 'rained-off' today had a huge amount of cakes baked yesterday that needed selling. So we ended up instead heading to Epping. Yes we we're a little concerned upon discovering there were only about 30 traders on site, but hey an hour passed and well we were busier than ever. Thanks to everyone showing an interest and especially those of you who bought from us. We did really well thanks to your business. Cheers.

Don't panic!!!

The Dunton Boot Sale is OFF today because of all the wetness. Don't panic! We have a cunning plan, and should hopefully instead be going to the Premier Market Boot Sale in Epping instead because they open later. So hopefully the rain should stop by then. According to the organisers their market is still on today for you to visit from 11am. The details are as follows: The market is located at Toll House Field, Woodside, Thornwood, Epping, CM16 6LG. Open to traders from 10am and everyone else from 11am. So guess what, it's back to bed for a couple of hours, and fingers crossed the sun will be shining soon.

50th Birthday Cake

A great present for a 50th Birthday. Adrian has just finished decorating this beautiful 50th Birthday Cake. A fluffy madiera with a strawberry and buttercream filling, coated in fondant icing with royal icing details. The fondant icing is a metallic cobalt blue which will shimmer in the candlelight.
