Latest Cakes, Photoshoots and Party Styling

It’s been a busy few weeks at Red Carousel. Twins Brooklyn and Geraint, celebrated their first birthdays with a Sakura theme. I had a lot of fun making the cute Japanese Kokeshi characters.sakura Little Hayley celebrated her first birthday too. Firstly, with a cake smash photoshoot with The Studio Loft and then a Hungry Caterpillar party. The ladies over at The Studio Loft are great to work with and their photography is beautiful – they took my family photos recently. We created a pink rainbow cake and styled the set with donut shaped balloons and customised tassels. hayley cake smash.jpg

And here’s the Hungry Caterpillar cake, cookies and dessert table Red Carousel created. We also designed the save the date, invitation and other printables to suit the theme. I love setting up at the gorgeous Pollen restaurant, it’s a beautiful backdrop for a party.
