Here is Marieke’s description of her Superb cake:

The reason why I choose to make this cake is that Mary Crawley is one of my favourite characters. Lady Mary is the eldest daughter of Lord and Lady Grantham. She is widow to Matthew Crawley.  Mary is a frosty woman and the big question in the series is will she ever be ready to love again. My favourite quote of Mary is the following one; “I’ve decided to live in the present and not spend my life regretting the past or dreading the future”. The cake I made is a two tiered (6 and 8 inch) square cake. I used mint green, black and mother-of-pearl in this cake. For the gloves and the bag I used the dots texture mat from Sugar Artistry. One of my specialties is sugar flowers. I think that the black sugar chrysanthemum adds beautifully to this roaring twenties cake.

Before Jenny asked me to join this amazing group I hadn’t watched a lot of Downton Abbey, but once I started researching I got pulled into a world or incredible costumes, amazing textures and times gone by. I decided to go with the maids outfit with elements from the housekeeper as I had never done a fashion inspired creation before and I have never done just a black and white one either. I was drawn to the white lace on the aprons and the black lace on the house keeper. I wanted to see what I could create without jewels, beading and embellishment. I covered the top tier in black fondant and then completely in cake lace which was a first for me, but I love the way it turned out. I covered the bottom tier in pleats, trying to ensure it looked natural and flowing. The middle tier was the biggest challenge, taking as many elements of the white lace as I go to recreate the pattern and style. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jenny again for inviting me and allowing me to be apart of a truly incredible collaboration with such other amazing artists.

Here is Karolina’s description of her Terrific cake:

My inspiration was a Renault 12/16hp Launderette (1911) — Lord Grantham’s first car at Downton Abbey. I absolutely love and adore vintage cars, so it was dead easy for me to choose what my inspiration for this beautiful collaboration would be. My chocolate bas-relief was created to resemble vintage postcard, made out of modeling chocolate, sitting on rice paper background, all hand cut and hand painted. To get good idea about the proportions of this particular car, I studied lots of pictures and worked out my own detailed blueprint for it. I airbrushed precise outlines of the car, but then, during work I relaxed a lot and worked free-style, which I enjoyed very much.

This Fabulous cake was made by Jonathan Theuma from JT Cakes.

Here is Jonathan’s bio:

I’m Jonathan from the tiny Island of Malta which is in the Mediterranean.  Creating cakes is my passion. I was introduced to cake decorating by my father. I started decorating simple cakes when I was just 17 years old. When I was 21 I attended a sugar flower course and after that I used to do some sugar flower decorations on wedding cakes my dad used to bake and cover.  In 2004, when I was 25, my father suddenly passed away.  I abandoned the cake world for almost 7 years. I started again 4 years ago from scratch.  In October 2014 I created a first in the cake world – floating box cakes.  My speciality is gravity-defying cakes and painted cakes.

Here is Jonathan’s description of his Fabulous cake:

For my inspiration I wanted to do a tired cake based on the harem pants outfit worn by Lady Sybil in Season 1.  I wanted to recreate the shades of blue colours, bronze and black, using as many possible elements and texture from her dress. The bottom tier is carved cake and I did pleats the match her harem pants. The second tier is covered in black fondant and piped royal icing painted in bronze. For the third tier I took some elements from her top dress and did a quilling effect. I also did a touch of abstract painting on top tier with matching bronze sugar roses.
