The Joy of Cake

I’ve made cakes and cupcakes this year with joy being a big part of them.  Excuse the pun, but it truly was a joy to create them.


Rachel’s 50th birthday cake consisted of an illustration by Stephanie Hill; a depiction of Rachel on her bike, singing ‘Joyful, Joyful, Lord we adore thee’, one of her favourite songs, riding to work (or perhaps the tennis court).  I decorated the cake with hand-made tennis balls and rackets to represent her love of tennis and the things that bring her joy.

Joy Cupcakes

Last Christmas, I created these joy cupcakes.  They went down a treat, with everyone who received them.

Goodbye shouldn’t always be about sad farewells.  So when Anne was leaving our church to move out of London, I was asked to create a ‘goodbye cake’.  This simple verse of scripture was the perfect send-off from her church family:


“You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace;

the mountains and hills will burst into song before you,

and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” – Isaiah 55 v 12

Cakes are usually part of the most joyous occasions, so there is definitely joy in cake.
