30th Birthday Cake

1 Comment »

This cake was requested by my client for her friends surprise 30th birthday party. She was very specific. The cake had to be white, with this exact shade of blue, be decorated with dots and also have carnations on it as these are her friend’s favourite flowers.

I was a bit nervous that I would not be able to match up the blues correctly, but I did, and this was the outcome.


Instead of one large carnation on top of the cake, I did 5 smaller ones and clustered them together.

A simple design, but quite lovely. Oh, the cake was Dark Chocolate with Vanilla Bean Buttercream Frosting.

Baby Shower Cake

No Comments »

One of the cakes I’ve made in the last couple of weeks was this Baby Shower Cake.

It was a surprise gift to the mom-to-be, and my client and I kinda had an idea of what she wanted, but we also wanted it to be a surprise. So we used the decor for the baby shower as a starting point, and went from there.

And this was the result. A vanilla sponge with caramel and buttercream frosting, covered with sugarpaste.

The sleeping teddy ontop of the cake tied in with not only the decor of the shower, but also of the baby’s room.


Because it was for a boy, we decided on the blue sugarpaste. And can anyone resist the cuteness of a baby’s foot? Hence the footprints around the side of the cake.

I love how this cake turned out – so gorgeous but oh so simple
