These chocolate cupcakes with toffee secret centres are iced with my secret recipe chocolate butter icing and decorated with a camouflage-inspired sugar paste dome.
Cherriheart sponsored these cakes for Mrs South Africa finalist Talita’s Cuppa-for-CANSA at Avianto!
You can see photographs from the event, including a Cherriheart fashion show, in these photos by Catherine Scott Photography.

Thandi’s little boy’s birthday cake!
The first tier is chocolate cake with chocolate butter icing, covered to look like a cow.
The top tier is green velvet with cream cheese icing covered to look like denim with a belt and a sheriff’s badge buckle.
All the decorations – the boots, stetson, pony, badge, belt, bandana, wagon wheel, horseshoes, cactii, fencing – are all made free hand by me – I don’t use moulds though I do use shaped cutters.
I am especially pleased with the phony as he is standing, not sitting, but I think I must make the stetson a bit bigger next time…
Gugu ordered a baby shower cake from me!
This is an extra tall cake – layers of chocolate and vanilla cake, alternately filled with caramel and cream cheese icing, and covered with caramel cream cheese before being decorated.
This cake was for a baby shower where the sex of the baby had not yet been revealed so its not specifically pink or blue.
This cake was an extra special order for me.
It was made for a couple who happen to be very dear friends of mine, and I had so much fun making it!
I had practiced the different kinds of ruffles in the weeks preceding the wedding because there are several different ways to do them, and I even “practiced” blowing up the tiny balloons so I could see how big they would be.
There are three tiers – chocolate on the bottom, then a blue, pink & purple layered vanilla second tier and at the top is a yellow, green & orange layered vanilla tier.
The tiers are covered in white sugar paste decorated with sugar paste ruffles and there are small coloured buttons half hidden amongst the ruffles to echo the bride’s button bouquet. The edges of some of the ruffles are dusted in light pink for a subtle splash of colour.
The wooden laser-cut banner was custom-made by Paperkutz and the miniature balloons echo the table centre pieces.
The wedding took place at The Hertford in Lanseria.
