Yesterday I delivered a purple velvet cake and cupcakes to Moon & Sixpence for a wedding!

The purple velvet cake was filled and covered with my delectable cream cheese icing, and decorated with white chocolate scrolls and little handmade sugarpaste bugs!

The cupcakes, all in purple paper cups, were also topped with cream cheese icing and decorated with little handmade sugarpaste bugs.

And there were twelve special purple velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing (and no bugs) baked with my newly perfected egg-free velvet recipe!

Nicolene also provided little white boxes for her guests to be able to take a cupcake home with them!

A Cowboy Themed Birthday Cake

Using several cowboy themed cakes I found on the internet for inspiration, I designed this two-tiered cake for my nephew’s first birthday and his cowboy themed party!

The cake inside is a chocolate mousse cake, filled with strawberry and apricot jam to compliment the sweetness of the cake, and the chocolate icing under the sugarpaste cover. This cake recipe is always a winner because its a divinely rich and surprisingly moist chocolate cake.

All the decorations on the cake from the boots to the the fat grey pony, the fence posts and the cacti, the cow print, the belt and buckle, the hat and the bandanna on top- were all handmade by me, without moulds. I was very pleased with the “leather look” I achieved on the boots too!

A Blue And Brown First Birthday Party

Andrea ordered a cake and cupcakes from me for little Henry’s first birthday party and asked for a blue and brown colour scheme. The vanilla cupcakes with blue vanilla butter icing were made to accompany a cake…

This is a square, three layer, chocolate cake sandwiched and iced with chocolate ganache. I then covered it with white sugarpaste and decorated it with sugarpaste squares in shades of blue and brown.

Andrea asked for four sugarpaste bears to sit on top of the cake, and I made them in four different poses and four different shades of brown. Three of the bears are on the front of the cake and one is on the back behind the blocks.

The five toy blocks spelling out Henry’s name are decorated sugarpaste squares that I glued to squares of chocolate cake using cream cheese icing!

A Green And Orange Dragon Cake!

Thandi orders from me on a regular basis, and for her Matteo’s birthday she ordered a dragon cake!

I turned this one around so his head and tail were on opposite sides of the board to the ones I did before, but like the others it had a layered chocolate cake sandwiched with ganache for the body, a head made of rice krispy treats, and a neck and tail made of a cake and ganache “cake pop” mixture- which I can mould instead of sculpt.

Here it is covered in ganache in preparation for its sugarpaste covering.

And here is the finished cake!

Ballerina Birthday Cake

This is a delectably delicious chocolate cake, filled and iced with chocolate ganache (which I must admit to eating the remainder of when I finished decorating the cake), and then covered in bright blue sugarpaste.

It was then decorated with pink sugarpaste ribbons and bows, and topped with a handmade sugarpaste ballerina bear.
