This cake and cupcake order was for Desh and Niven’s baby shower – a red velvet cake with cream cheese icing, decorated with edible lace and my nursery-themed cake topper.
The entire cake topper is edible, and I made it on its own little cake board so it could be removed from the cake and kept.
The cupcakes for the shower were an assortment of some of my favourites!
The strawberry heaven is of course a fresh strawberry cupcake filled with a white chocolate and shortbread truffle topped with a strawberry cream cheese icing and shortbread crumbs.
The Oreo cupcake is a rich chocolate cupcake with an Oreo in the bottom, topped with vanilla butter icing that is then covered in a melted dark chocolate.
The vanilla cupcakes were topped with a blue and white two-tone vanilla butter icing swirl and the chocolate cupcakes were topped with chocolate butter icing, decorated with baby-themed sugar paste decorations.
The square vanilla cake was filled with caramel butter icing and cream cheese icing before being covered with sugar paste and decorated with handmade sugar paste figures.
Libby’s 50th birthday cake is decorated to echo her invitations – a vanilla cake with vanilla butter icing. I painted over the gold edible print “50” with gold lustre before adding the glittery sugar paste “50” on top of it.
For Emma’s “Cute as a Button” first birthday party, her mommy ordered a chocolate cake decorated with sugar paste buttons and little flowers, topped with a sugar paste “1”.
Nicholas celebrated his 7th birthday with this vanilla cake, topped with a sugar paste wolf, rocks and trees, and a butter icing river.
He wanted to be able to take the sugar paste wolf cake topper off the cake and keep it, so the wolf and the rocks it is sitting on are on their own little cake board.
