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

No Comments »

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.

Seems like Baby Birds are quite the rage right now for Baby Shower Themes.

This cake was for a friend, and she absolutely loved it.

Train Cake & Train Cookies

No Comments »

How cute is this cake?

Something I’ve never done before, but loved it. As it was for a 2 year old, we did not use Sugarpaste, just ordinary buttercream frosting.

Wheels were biscuits, and each carriage was filled with sweeties.

I also made some Vanilla Sugar Cookies to go with it.

Super cute (and tasty too!)

Baptism Cake – Decadent Chocolate Fudge

No Comments »

One of my regular clients contacted me to create something ‘decadent’ for her baby’s Baptism.

She wanted something different – as it was going to be shared at Church, so she decided on a Decadent Chocolate Fudge Cake, surrounded by Belgian Chocolate Pencils and topped with Chocolate Maltesers and pink flowers (which matched the cupcakes).

This is one of my favourite cakes to make.  It is so absolutely delicious plus of course it has the ‘wow’ factor as it is 100% chocolate.

I also made vanilla cupcakes to match (for those people who are not complete chocoholics!)

For me, simple is always the best!

What a fun cake this was to make!

Ice-Cream Shoppe Party’s seem to be the rage at the moment – how cute is this?

A Chocolate Fudge Cake, frosted with Cookies & Cream Frosting and decorated with cones, which were filled with sweeties and topped with ‘ice-cream’ and a mini marshmallow.
