Another tank-shaped birthday cake for 6 year old Juan.
There’s chocolate cake and chocolate butter icing inside this one and I think its the 7th tank I’ve done…
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.
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…
There were vanilla cupcakes with white vanilla butter icing and glitter to go with it but I forgot to take pictures of those.
This was a birthday cake!
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.
