A Naked Wedding Cake!

The naked cake trend is huge at the moment, and it makes for a very different look as a wedding cake.

This white velvet cake is filled and just lightly covered with white vanilla butter icing (the flowers were added at the reception).

The bottom tier is red velvet cake with cream cheese icing, and the middle and top tier are vanilla cake with caramel butter icing.

When I was finishing the cake, the flower I had made to go on the top tier broke and I was nearly in tears!

Orca!

Emma had an “under the sea” themed party for her 10th birthday, and she wanted a cake shaped like a Killer Whale.

After looking at many different Orca cakes on the internet, a cake done by The Kennet House Cake Company stole our hearts, and I used it as inspiration for my cake, showing an Orca’s head peeping up out of the water.

The vanilla cupcakes with blue and white vanilla butter icing were decorated with ready-made cupcake toppers fitting her party theme.

Ninja!

This is a ninja-themed birthday cake for Joshua’s 7th birthday, decorated with sugar paste throwing stars and sugar paste katana.

I opted for red “robes” on the cake board rather than black, since I didn’t want the cake to get too dark.

The ninja stars are all around the cake and on top, but I wish I had made more to stick “into ” the cake! 😀
