Burty Bakler at Ashby magna

Ashby Magna Street Fair September 2017

Our first visit to this lovely event held in the centre of Ashby Magna village. There was a selection of stalls, some traders, and others fund raising for village events. Fortunately the weather was kind to us and with the Fair being held from 6:00 to 9:00 in the evening we had to use our lights to illuminate the gazebo & stock!

Glen Parva Gala August 2017

Using our own gazebo and table at the Glen Parva Gala. Unfortunately there was torrential rain before we set up and light rain/drizzle for a while afterwards. This didn't dampen our spirits and things looked even nicer later on when the sun came out.

Melton Mowbray Saturday Market August 2017

Outside again but this time instead of using our own Gazebo, this was a traditional market stall in the centre of Melton Mowbray. If you look closely you can see two fudge sample bowls on the front of the table. (We weren't having a huge sale, the 50% off signs were in Edinburgh Woolen Mill Shop's window behind us!)

Burty Baker at Abingtom Park Food Fair July 2017

Abington Park Museum Food Fair July 2017

Another lovely day at the Abington Park Museum in Northampton. Our last visit here was a Vintage Fair where we had our gazebo in their courtyard. This time it was a Food Fair and our stall was inside the museum in the beautiful Victorian Room. We were placed in the corner with windows behind us which unfortunately enabled us to watch the rain outside later in the afternoon! (Thank goodness we were inside!)

Monks Kirby Summer Fayre June 2017

A Burty's eye view of the Monks Kirby Summer Fayre. Unfortunately the picture doesn't completely capture the atmosphere of this lovely event, but at least you can see the setting in amongst the superb big trees (and the chairs set up ready for the next children's magic show!).

Sues Birthday Cake by Burty Baker

Sue's Birthday Cake

Another celebration cake made for a very good friend's birthday (I'm not saying how old she is!). As the cake was a gift it was designed to look like a wrapped present.

Burty Baker Jordans Cake

Jordan's Birthday Cake

Choosing a theme for keen footballer Jordan's 13th birthday cake was quite simple. A traditional Madera cake (and football) fondant iced with a custom made printed collar showing the logo & colours of his own football team Dunton and Broughton Rangers.

The separate football was made specially for his younger brother Keegan who is sucrose intolerant. So this was made sugar-free (using 'Truvia' a sugar substitute) and sugar free jam. The Fondant icing was removed before the cake was given to him

Burty Baker Rozannas Cake

Rozanna's Cake

This is the top tier of a multi tier cake made for professional opera singer Rozanna Madylus' 30th birthday. Hand made icing rose petals and a printed collar with music from one of her favourite arias.
