These sugar pieces were made to go on an Alice in Wonderland-themed cake (baked by someoneelse).
A bottle with a “drink me” label, a Cheshire cat smile, colourful toadstools,
and the white rabbit’s pocket watch.
There were three white roses too, painted in a few places with red “paint”.
I was especially pleased with the pocket watch!
Ages and ages ago, I saw a cake artist’s tutorial where she used
isomalt to make a “glass” face on a pocket watch
and I have been dying to try it myself and I finally had the chance!
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!
