A Tank Cake For A Girl!

This is Helena’s birthday cake- my chocolate cake and chocolate butter icing- sculpted into a tank shape.

When I first heard it was a army-themed party for a girl I thought I could do the tank in a pink, black and purple camouflage, but apparently this is no girly girl, so I do hope she’ll forgive me putting pink laces in the boots!

The pictures are rushed because I only just finished it in time for its collection, so I didn’t photograph all the sides…

The chocolate cupcakes are topped with my chocolate butter icing and decorated with handmade sugar paste grenades on sugar paste discs.

Vintage Cake

I very seldom get to do sugar flowers ‘co they’re very time consuming to make and as a result they’re expensive, so when Eleanor ordered a vintage-themed cake with roses and lace and pearls I was really looking forward to doing sugar roses!

Its a vanilla cake filled with vanilla butter icing, covered in white sugar paste and decorated with sugar pearls, an edible sugar lace border, a sugar paste bow and sugar roses – two blooms and a bud, with simple rose leaves.
I was pleased with the final result, although I think I should have put the bud next to the two blooms on the other side of the bow… :P

There were vanilla cupcakes with white vanilla butter icing and glitter to go with it but I forgot to take pictures of those.

Not the Turtles… :P

Okay, so you know I don’t infringe on copyright when it comes to decorating cakes and cupcakes, but when a young someone has their heart set on a theme I try to do something that fits without crossing the line.

These chocolate cuppies with green vanilla butter icing (gluten, egg and dairy free) were for a Ninja Turtles birthday party, and they went to school, so one cupcake was decorated with a pizza slice, a sword and a “tortoiseshell” six.
