Bond, James Bond.

Continuing the theme of James Bond this week. 
Today would have been Ian Fleming's birthday.

Happy birthday to those who share their birthdays with the creator of James Bond.

First up, from Takes The Cake in Western Australia comes this fantastic Bond cake which has ingredients of the James Bond persona - golden gun, poker chips.

Another iconic Bond image is the Aston Martin car seen here in cake form from Etoile Bakery in London, England.

Do you know how Ian Fleming decided on his super-spy's name?
He wanted an unassuming name rather than something like "Peregrine Carruthers" and hunted around for inspiration. 
This came in the form of the author of a book about birds which he had in his collection and which he used often as he was a keen birdwatcher (a bit like Bond who also liked to "watch birds").

I love the sentiment of this next one: "licensed to thrill". lol.

How cool are these cupcakes in the Bond theme made by Cassandra Hickling of Cupcake Creations in Yorkshire, England. Brilliant cupcakes using some of the film titles for inspiration.

See you in a couple of days.
