This birthday cake was inspired by the little boy’s invitation – sugar paste dinosaurs, rocks and plants on a square vanilla cake filled with caramel butter icing!
I am really chuffed to have found a way to give my animals four legs so they can stand on the cakes rather than have to sit or lie down. It takes longer but I love the end product.
My brother and his sweetheart are expecting a little girl in December, the first little girl in our family after my siblings and I all having boys – eight of them – and this weekend we had a shower for them.
Instead of buying them a gift for the shower, I made them a cake.
Everything on the cake is edible, including the sugar lace! The cot itself, the blankets, cushions, mat and teddy bear are all made of sugar paste.
I am thrilled with the end result! The edible lace worked perfectly as embellishments for the blanket and pillows, and I added pearls to the lace collars on the cake.
I ended up having to put last minute “feet” on the cot ’coz when I put it on the cake the first time it went through the sugar paste cover!
This is a 6 layer rainbow velvet cake filled with cream cheese icing and a raspberry butter icing, made for Thandi’s Vegas-themed birthday party! All edible and all handmade by me!
Its a 12″ cake so by the time it was finished it weighed a ton!
Thandi also ordered some Oreo cupcakes for her guests – a chocolate cupcake with an Oreo in the bottom, topped with my vanilla butter icing and covered in dark chocolate.
And she ordered vanilla cupcakes and carrot cupcakes in jars for her guests to take home with them.

This cake is layers of vanilla cake and pink velvet cake with cream cheese icing and caramel icing, decorated with handmade sugar paste bugs having a picnic. The picnic treats – the cake, cupcakes, cookies and the plates the treats are on as well as the blanket, all are made with sugar paste by me.
