Naked Chocolate Fudge Cake

No Comments »

I just love the new trend of ‘naked’ cakes.  Something so rustic and yummy about a cake with frosting peeking through the layers of cake and not hidden beneath sugarpaste!

Another Chocolate Cake with copious amounts of Choc Fudge Frosting.

Simple decor in the form of a heart made up of sprinkles.

Yummy :)

Ninja Turtle Party

No Comments »

Well after discovering that Ninja’s were the new favourite TV show for little boys, I received another request for a Cake.  Together with Cake Pops and Pizza Cookies.

My client sent me a few pics of what she wanted and asked me to add my personal touch to them.

The cake was a two tier Vanilla Cake covered in Buttercream Frosting, not Sugarpaste (as her son does not like sugarpaste).  Similar to my last cake with the ninja’s peeking out of the drain.

Added to that were Vanilla Cake Pops in the form of Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael with their trademark bandannas across their eyes.

My favourite creation from this order were the Pizza Sugar Cookies.  I just loved the outcome and they were absolutely delish!

Handbag Cake

No Comments »

Another of my regular clients is growing up far too quickly – as is evident by her birthday cake this year.

Her favourite colour is light blue and she is currently into style and fashion.  Her mum requested an unfussy cake so i decided on a simple ‘Chanel’ inspired handbag with a few scallops and swirls.

Cake was their family’s favourite – Vanilla with Caramel Cream filling (my other popular seller).

Ninja Turtle Cake

Who knew Ninja Turtles were back in fashion?  I certainly didn’t so had to do some research when this Ninja Turtle Cake was requested.

This was a Chocolate Cake with my Chocolate Fudge frosting.  This is probably my most popular cake flavour requested.

I must say I had great fun coming up with this design and do think that the Ninja’s are quite cute.

Barbie Cake

No Comments »

Shew!  Am so very behind in updating my website.  Apologies.  Life has just gotten the better of me this year :)

This was the first Barbie Doll cake that I have made.  I always thought they were really tricky and awkward.  But not at all.  It was super easy and i just loved the outcome.

It was a vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting.  By far my most popular for small kiddies.

Safe to say the birthday girl (and her mama and grandmama) loved it too bits!

Barney Cake

No Comments »

Barney is not my favourite character to create.  The colour is difficult to get right, and so is he.  But, a challenge I could never resist so ;)

This was a first birthday cake for little Elizah.  She loves Barney (what 1 year old doesn’t?) and her mama sent me a pic of the cake she wanted.

Such a lovely idea.  A cake in the shape of a present, with a big yellow sugarpaste bow, and Barney just for good measure.

Cake was Vanilla with Vanilla Buttercream.

And Barney turned out ok too!

Bizzy Bear Cake

I had never heard of Bizzy Bear when I was asked to create this cake for a sweet little girl’s First Birthday Party.  So I had to do some investigating.

And this is what I created.  A fun, bright and dotty cake.

The Mama and little girl both loved the cake – which was Vanilla with Vanilla Buttercream.

I also baked some Bizzy Bear Sugar Cookies which were added to the Party Packs.

Farm Cake

No Comments »

This cake was sooo cute.  My client requested a cake with the animals that her daughter loves most – cows, sheep, donkeys and pigs (yup, she’s a farmgirl!)

So the cake was Vanilla with Cream Caramel filling, covered in sugarpaste and decorated with modelled animals.  I then finished it off with a scalloped border round the side.

Owl Baby Shower Cake

A good friend of mine is expecting her 3rd baby, but her first girl, so I was delighted to be asked to make the cake.

I have been wanting to use an owl embellishment for sometime, and i thought this would be perfect.

And it was.

I loved it. Simple but pretty and girly.
