Eadaoin & Daniels fab Wedding Day and Cake.

The Cupcake Tea Party Wedding Cake.

This cake was a pleasure. I met Daniel and Eadaoin one day in my coffee shop. They had lots of ideas regarding their wedding cake. I love when people know what they want, it means they have given time to their decision, and this means I don't have to read their minds. Eadaoin is a keen blogger with a fantastic eye for all things fabulous, cupcakes, china teacups and fab cake stands and so much more. So when she pitched her idea to me I was delighted to be able to make it. Eadaoin provided the tea cups and half of the cake stands and The Two Dames provided the remainder. So togeather we created this fantastic Cupcake Tea Party Wedding Cake.

Cupcake frenzy...

30 is the new 20 and 40 is the new 30..........

Cupcakes can be made to suit every occasion. The fresh flowers bring this cupcake creation alive. It was created for two fantastic ladies who were holding a joint 30th birthday bash. One of the ladies was in complete denial so we put '21' on her cake!!! They chose the colours to match their outfits which I loved, it helped to seperate each girl while also creating a fantastic masterpeice. Once the cutomer is happy I know I have fulfilled their specifications, win win situation. We eat with our eyes as well as our tummies so food should always look as good as it tastes, this certainly did.

Chocolate Biscuit cake with a difference! AKA Aislings Chocolate Biscuit Cake

The Two Dames Chocolate Biscuit Cake has been a family recipe for as long as I can remember. It is one of our bese-sellers in our coffee shop. The decoration on this cake was designed especially for Aisling. She rang me one day with an idea of a cake, chocolate biscuit cake with a sweet twist, and this is what we created. It is lovely when any of my customers come to me with an idea because I tend to run away with it and go wild. Every cake i make is always different, It is wonderful to have such imaginative customers and customers who are brave enough to give me complete control. I love to get carried away. I have told Aisling that I was naming this particular cake after her, it is unique to her now. It also tastes as good as it looks.

We eat with our eyes!

The Two Dames are always trying to keep the customers interested because without our customers we would cease to exist. With that knowledge we always try to keep them interested and satisfied. Creativity is my passion and i love to eat with my eyes. It is very important to remember that the food must always taste as good as it looks. So seasoning at the start of homemade soup is crucial, the correct balance of ingredients in our homemade dressing is also very important, our breads, our cakes , our sandwiches, our quiches and everything else we create. Flavour, taste and appeance are what set The Two Dames out from the rest.

It is a new year and The Two Dames are very proud to start 2010 off with there first Bridgestone Award which will be mounted today. We have spent the last 3yrs working hard trying to please the public and enjoying every minute, so far so good. With Marta as our right-hand woman we are very lucky to maintain a high standard. To finish 2009 we commissioned a piece of art work that would depict The Two Dames in colour rather than words and luckily for us a friend/ great customer Johnny created this wonderful sign.
