Smurf Cake

No Comments »

My client sent me a picture of the cake that she wanted for her son’s 4th Birthday, but asked me to make it into a 2 tier cake.

I always change cakes that i get sent pictures of, as I do not want to be accused of copying another bakers design.

I loved loved this cake.   Super cute.

Two tiers of Vanilla with Vanilla Buttercream frosting complete with ladders and a couple of smurfs.  Simple again with just a number four and some grass and flower detail around the edges.

My client was super happy with the cake.  Always a good thing!

Hobbit Cake

No Comments »

Wow.  When I received a request to create a cake for a Hobbit/Lord of the Rings fan I was completely stumped.   I have never read any of the books and had absolutely no idea what to create.

Thankfully for me my husband is a JR Tolkien fan and was able to help me out :)

YM Hobbit Cake

Cake was Vanilla with Chocolate Frosting.

I decided to create a hobbit hole (or Smial) with Gandalf and Frodo sitting outside.  I can quite honestly say that this is possibly my favourite cake created to date.  It just came out so perfectly and when I delivered it my client was literally speechless.

The perfect cake for a 10 year old Hobbit Fan!

Pamper Party Cake

No Comments »

How cute was this cake?  Seriously?

Pamper Party Cake

Pamper Party Cake

A friend of mine was having a Pamper Party for her 10 yr old daughter (together with a sleepover of lots of little girls – brave woman) and wanted a Pamper Cake.

I had such a ball creating this cake.  I kept it very simple (I do not like cluttered cakes) and added some dots round the side for fun.  Included on top of the cake was Essie Nail Polish, Eye Shadow, Blush, Eye cream, a cucumber slice, a mirror and a towel.

Cake was Vanilla with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting.

Apparently all the little girls could not believe that they could eat the toppers.  So cute!

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

No Comments »

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!
