I’ve been working on cake designs with complimentary cupcake toppers, and working out prices to go with them. This way you can pick a cake design and cupcakes to match, and I have some creative freedom to get my art on!
I have even come up with designs for a “Winnie-the-Pooh” and “Strawberry Shortcake” that won’t infringe on their copyright!
What do you think?
I was thrilled with how this turned out – I loved the bright colours on the pink cake,
and I finished with time to spare…
Then I checked my invoice again as I always do when I file it,
and the unicorn and rainbow were supposed to be pastels, not bright colours!
I had to redo the topper, so I delivered it to my customer that evening.
I managed to take the topper apart without doing too much damage, and redid the candle holders.
It looked great, but I could kick myself for making myself a few hours extra work! 😂
I did my first “gender reveal” cake for some very dear friends!
Decorated with a little blue sugar sneaker and a little pink sugar shoe, and pink and blue sugar paste hearts, it’s covered in a rich cream cheese icing so that the colour of the cake inside is a surprise – blue cake for a boy, or pink for a girl!
This one was blue inside! 💙💙💙
It’s such a privilege to do a gender reveal cake – knowing whether the couple is having a boy or a girl even before they do, and keeping it a secret!
A fluffy monster with googly-eyes for a little boy’s 5th birthday party!
Inside its layers of my delectable vanilla cake, with vanilla butter icing, and piped “fluff” in a blue butter icing.
My favourite part of the party was where the kids started chanting “Tongue! Tongue! Tongue!” for the birthday boy to pull off the purple sugar paste tongue and eat it, before sharing the sugar paste eyeballs!
