Yes, they most certainly do. They did a guitar shaped brthday cake for my husbands birthday and it was absolutely amazing, both the taste and the look. The lady who runs it, Kate, is a professional cake maker/decorator! Its well worth the drive over to visit them and have a discreet "nose", a coffee and indeed one of their cakes!! - I wish I had a phone number for them, but I dont (broken mobile, long story!!)

Do not knock "professional amateurs" working from their kitchen. The hours needed to make a wedding cake (3 tiers) are enormous and they often do not earn even the minimum wage. I operated out of my kitchen in the UK making wedding cakes - this was after a two year course - and stopped making cakes when I moved here. Look at their pictures and then compare prices.

One word of warning - if you are going for sugar flowers be careful because of the humidity.

I actually own a cafe in the Malaga area and would like to tell you that i have all sorts of un-savoury people coming in to offer their services of " Home-baking " i certainly wouldnt entertain the Kitchen cook !!! i would prefer to buy from a fully licensed premises where i am sure that there are no animals etc. and their is a controlled standard of cleanliness.
Do you have any more details please JO, i host lots of communions and get asked for british style cakes and always struggle to find a reputable establishment......maybe i could work alongside Pic-niks. Many thanks

I shall go into Pic niks tomorrow and ask them to give me their phone number to pass on to you - alternatively, if you're fairly close to Alhaurin El Grande, you could pop in there - Simon and Kate are the owners, he does the talking and she does the work lol!!!!!!!

Celebration cakes are easy to make. The Be-Ro recipe is good



However icing them is a different matter.
