Hi there. I'm Jess, a self-taught baker. Sometimes I make things out of bits of paper, too.

Space wedding cake by thesearejessicakes
Space wedding cake
Last month I made a space-themed wedding cake for a really wonderful lesbian couple. The photos of the finished cake are really crap and make me want to weep. The whole day was so manic and I only have this instagram photo and one really terrible video of the circumference of the cake to show for it. 

Bottom tier was a fondant Orrery; top tier was a bunch of stars, covered in constellations mentioned in a poem their wedding was themed around. 

Both tiers were rainbow layer cake inside: the top was rose flavoured, the bottom was vanilla. There was also a bunch of chocolate cupcakes (which were the best I've ever made and I have no idea what I did differently but haven't been able to recreate them :'( 

Lastly, everything was vegan. 
Merlin Papercuts by thesearejessicakes
Merlin Papercuts
I made these to go on my birthday cake (i'm 21 wtf!!) + then put them in a 9" frame once the cake was cut. The cake itself was a vegan coffee rainbow cake, and it was fab. (Photos of cake in tumblr link below) 

My fondness for Merlin/Gwen kind of slipped through in this, as did my love for the Pendragon siblings being all sibling-ly. :3

Brighton Beach Huts by thesearejessicakes
Brighton Beach Huts
This was the last proper cake I made, back in September, for one of my best friend's 21st birthday. The fact that it's already April (and that MY 21st is just round the corner) is a bit terrifying. She was living in Brighton at the time and her mum drove this cake all the way down there from Manchester. I messed up the maths/forgot that 3D things have that third measurement, and this ended up being huge. (16" long, 6" tall, 5" deep.)
Mushu + Bartok 18th birthday cake by thesearejessicakes
Mushu + Bartok 18th birthday cake
Apparently I never shared this here??? Made for my cousin's 18th in August. Top tier was hazelnut + chocolate ganache; middle tier was a dummy; bottom tier was chocolate + chocolate ganache. Cake toppers were papercuts. All was vegan.
