Purple Pansies

This is an extra tall, super decadent, white velvet cake with cream cheese icing – six layers of cake and icing inside!

It was covered with white sugar paste, and decorated with sugar paste pansies in shades of purple, yellow and white, white daisies, little purple butterflies, and a giant purple sugar paste gift bow!

That Unicorn Cake!

I did a version of the #HighwayUnicornCake by The Scran Line for a friend’s birthday, without the macarons, topping the cake with extra-tall buttercream swirls instead.
The chocolate drips down the side are painted gold with an edible luster dust.

This cake was so much fun to do, but a LOT of work!

Filling the cake pans with the raw batter in four colours took ages, one teaspoon full at a time, and then slicing each of the four baked cakes in half to have eight layers of cake and icing inside.

The cake was then covered with blue, pink, and purple butter icing in two shades, and the bottom had some confetti as added decoration.

These Boots Were Made For Walking

Kim and her family have been regular customers of mine for many years, and this pair of sugar paste cowboy boots was ordered as a cake topper for a joint-60th birthday.
One one boot-strap is the name “PAT” and on the other the name “NAN”, and they are decorated with a floral design.

I also made a silver horseshoe that says “HAPPY 60th BIRTHDAY” with a silver star-shaped sheriff badge.
The gorgeous yellow sunflowers were made by another cake artist as sugar flowers remain my arch nemesis… 😛

The finished cake – baked by someone else – looked liked awesome!

Anyone For Some “Beater Testing”?

Why “beater testing”?

Well, apart from the play on words (as in “beta test”) – testing recipes its expensive, and my loved ones are a little biased when I ask them what they think! 😛
This way, I get to work out exactly how long a new recipe will take, and how much it will cost, and I get unbiased feedback on whether a new recipe is a good one or not! 😀

I am planning on adding a range of sexy gourmet muffins to my repertoire, and I need FIVE people to test some new recipes for me!

For R108 (the cost of the ingredients) – you get a box of 12 gourmet muffins, in 6 different flavours:

Lemon crystal muffins
Banana walnut muffins
Jammy almond muffins
Pumpkin muffins
Cranberry orange muffins
Apple strudel muffins

Your test box must be collected from me on Saturday 15 July between 8am and 10am.
Then on Monday July 17th I will send you a few questions about your beater test to help me decide which flavours are a hit, and which are a miss!
If the date and time suits you – please contact me with your name and email address!
