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.

The chocolate cupcakes for this baby shower were baked in silver paper cups, iced with pink vanilla butter icing and white vanilla butter icing, sprinkled with a little edible glitter and topped with layered sugarpaste hearts and flowers in pink and white.

A Dragon Cake

I made another dragon cake! This one is green and was ordered by Collette for Nicholas’  4th birthday!

 

The dragon’s body is a chocolate mud cake layered with chocolate ganache, the neck and tail are a type of cake pop mixture of mud cake and ganache, and his head is made of rice krispy treats. I used some of the left over cake pop mixture to shape the body part of the cake a little rounder.

Once the cake had settled, I covered it in chocolate ganache and then hot knifed it to smooth it over in preparation for the sugarpaste covering and decorating.
