Sugar and Cupcakes in Wonderland

These red velvet and vanilla marble cupcakes were topped with brightly-coloured,
handmade, sugar paste cupcake toppers – sugar paste domes with decorations,
completely covering the butter icing – little
teapots, toadstools, pocket watches, hearts, and top hats.

I also made several separate sugar pieces and cupcakes for this
Alice in Wonderland bridal shower – Mad Hatter top hats, a slightly crazy-looking mouse
that was to sit in a teacup, white rabbits in waistcoats diving down rabbit holes,
and Alice’s legs in the air with her petticoats billowing!

The cupcakes were Oreo (an Oreo in the bottom of a chocolate cupcake with
dark chocolate covered butter icing
), and refreshingly lemony G&T cupcakes!

Sugar in Wonderland

These sugar pieces were made to go on an Alice in Wonderland-themed cake.
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!

The toadstools were so much fun to do!

Here Be Dragons!

I have done a few cakes for Theuns’s birthday celebrations,
and this year he wanted a black dragon with red eyes!
I absolutely LOVE dragons, and I have done several dragon-themed cakes over the years,
but this was the first one covered in scales!

I am super thrilled with how it turned out – especially since it took a whopping
ELEVEN HOURS to cover and decorate (not including baking and sculpting it)!

Inside its layers of my delectable chocolate cake and melt-in-the-mouth chocolate butter icing,
and the board is covered with gold painted sugar paste discs.
I added a few pearls and little white sugar bones to make it look more like a dragon’s hoard!

Minette was thrilled with the cake too, and happy customers is exactly why I love my job!

Unicorn Cupcakes

I can’t believe I never posted these on my blog, and I was so pleased with how they turned out!
o.O   😀
The vanilla cupcakes in gold paper cups are topped with white vanilla butter icing, brightly coloured sprinkles, pearls, and flowers, and little gold unicorn horns and ears.

In fact, I was so pleased with the brightly coloured ones, that I did a pastel one too,
just so I could take a picture of it!

Everyone Loves Unicorns!

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!
🙈 Ugh!

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! 😂
