MJ’s 60th Gatsby Party

You may not know who MJ is so let me start by introducing you to the most fabulous woman in the word… my mum Jenny… otherwise known as MJ. Slightly off topic but if you like meringue check out her chocolate and balsamic meringue recipe here!
Anyway, 28th of December my step father organised the most beautifully bonkers surprise Gatsby party for my mum. Imagine lazer sky lights, singing waiters, Canapes, 5 course menu, Pornstar Martinis, flappers, Tommy guns and an endless amount of champagne.
So why am I telling you about this? Well I was in charge of the cake!!! With only 3 days after Christmas to prepare 80 cupcakes, 3 different flavours, 40 sugarpaste topper’s and a whole load of decoration; I was definitely feeling the pressure. However, it all came together in the end and I was so pleased with the result that I had to share it with you.


The cakes – Red Velvet, Vanilla, Milk & White chocolate, Dark Chocolate & Popping Candy.

And the man himself!


If you are having a cocktail party, then you need Thomas Colombo. He’s very Italian, very funny and makes VERY good cocktails!
Check out his website  http://thomascolmbo.com/

If you are in need of an amazing chef for dinner party/event then I highly recommend Thomas The Caterer. At the party we had a new type of catering called bowl food, mini portions of lots of different dishes served in bowls – I am still dreaming about his Butternut Squash Risotto and NYC sliders.
