I had so much fun with this order for little Mira’s first birthday celebration!
The cake has a vanilla bottom tier and a chocolate top tier, both covered with pink sugar paste. The top tier has baby’s name on the front with little gold dragees as accent, and a brown sugar paste bow.
The bottom tier is quilted and the little brown pearls were piped on with royal icing.
The cake topper is a sugar paste teddy wearing pearls and a bow, holding a pink #1.
There were chocolate cupcakes in gold paper cups and vanilla cupcakes in pink paper cups, decorated with handmade sugar paste cupcakes toppers teddybear faces – with bows and pearls.
There were also teddy-shaped cookies, decorated in pink, brown and white royal icing!
Mira’s mommy had a pink and brown tulle tutu made to go around the base of the cake, and the birthday girl had a matching tutu to wear for her party! 🙂 I got this picture from Nadine of the cake with its tutu!
Kim and her family have been regular customers of mine for many years, and this pair of sugar paste cowboy boots was ordered as a cake topper for a joint-60th birthday.
One one boot-strap is the name “PAT” and on the other the name “NAN”, and they are decorated with a floral design.
I also made a silver horseshoe that says “HAPPY 60th BIRTHDAY” with a silver star-shaped sheriff badge.
The gorgeous yellow sunflowers were made by another cake artist as sugar flowers remain my arch nemesis… 😛
The finished cake – baked by someone else – looked liked awesome!
This two-tiered cake was for Amelie and Tenike’s birthday celebrations.
The bottom tier is vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream filling and a pink and red, ombre buttercream cover, and the top tier is chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream, covered with yellow sugar paste and orange shading. Its decorated with vines, leaves and flowers.
The cake topper is handmade by me, two lion cubs, one sporting pink hair and a bow, and a smaller one with a bow, representing the two birthday girls.
This is a chocolate cake made to look like a tree stump, decorated with sugar paste toadstools, acorns, stones, vines, flowers, and hand made sugar paste animal friends – a fox, bird, bunny, owl, and raccoon.
The vanilla cupcakes in brown paper cups were topped with white vanilla buttercream, and decorated with handmade sugar paste owls in yellow, pink, orange, and mint green.
Here are the finished toadstools, leaves, and flowers, made in preparation for finishing the cake decoration and dried before being put on the cake.
