This week is the writer Ian Fleming's birthday.
For those who don't know,
this is the man who created James Bond.
During World War 2 Fleming worked as an assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence in the Admiralty in London, privy to many secrets. It was his experience in this job that was to provide many of the characters and incidents that he was to write about later in the Bond books.
He also wrote Chitty Chitty Bang Bang for his son.
Sadly Fleming passed away way back in 1964
at the age of only 56.
There are some great images associated with James Bond and they are used in these cakes.
From Little Wish Cakes in Perth Western Australia comes this fabbo Bond cake. The image shows all four sides as well as the fantastic cake stand.
The Cakeworks in County Durham, England, made this James Bond birthday cake which is quite different from the one above. I love the wee Bond Figure sitting on the edge of the cake in typical Bond pose.
There's a whole party theme here including these Bond cookies with the birthday boy's image on them.
These were made by Casey's Confections in Arizona, USA.
At Variedades Dalila is this totally awesome James Bond scene - everything is edible including the helicopter.
I love these "baddies" - brilliant!
