Latest Cakes, Photoshoots and Party Styling – Red Carousel Blog

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. 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. 


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.


I also made Hayley this Hello Kitty Pinata for another little party she was having at home. Made quite simply with cardboard, crepe paper, a hot glue gun, ribbons and some coloured paper. 

And lastly, we just made this carousel cake for Ryouna. This one took quite a bit of planning to get right. I was pretty happy with the way it turned out.
