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!
I can’t believe I never posted these on my blog, and I was so pleased with how they turned out!
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!
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!
