Alexander & George's Bicycle Birthday Cake

My son's friends are having a cycling birthday party tomorrow at a local country park and their mums asked me to make them a bicycle cake. I have to admit that at first I was at a loss as to how to do something that might appeal to five-year-olds. I had a trawl around the net and thanks to 'Inspire.Create.Bake' I was able to come up with something fun that I hope they will like. I am pleased with the tread on the tyres - it worked out better than I had hoped. It was quite a challenge to cover the frame of the bike with fondant, the most difficult part being the handle bars.



  1. Wow, what a wonderful and amazing looking cake. Great job dear.

  2. Thanks Priya - I really appreciate you keep stopping by to comment on my posts!

  3. Well, I am one of the mums who commissioned the cake above, and I can tell you it was an exquisite cake. Not only was it beautifully executed but the attention to detail was outstanding. To top it all, it tasted heavenly! That I did not expect as most beautiful cakes are normally very bland inside, but not this one. I cannot fault it in any way. It was amazing. Thank you Sarah. Gx
