Sweet Treats for a Birthday Party

For Aiden’s 2nd birthday, his mommy baked his birthday cake, and ordered sweet baked goodies from me for the party guests!

traditional baked cheesecake served with fresh chopped strawberries and citrus

strawberry cupcakes topped with cream cheese icing,
and caramel-filled chocolate cupcakes with caramel and vanilla butter icing

iced sugar cookies – checquered flags, cars, and planes

red velvet “brownies” made with chopped macadamia nuts, cherries, and cranberries,
and snickerdoodles (my favourite FAVOURITE cookie)

Wedding at Val Bonne Country Estate

What a nerve racking delivery to Val Bonne Country Estate! A million, squillion speed bumps and drains on the way there – with a cake in the boot! AND then I tripped on an inch-high step as I walked into the reception hall, and nearly threw the cake across the hall!!! o.O 😀 

The two-tier cake is vanilla cake with white vanilla buttercream filling. The top tier has a white sugar paste cover, with a border of sugar pearls, including a few turquoise pearls in between. The bottom tier is covered with light pink buttercream rosettes. The cake topper was provided by the bride.

The cupcakes were a delicious assortment of flavours! There were dark chocolate covered Oreo cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes with chocolate buttercream, and lemon cupcakes with lemon curd filling and cream cheese icing.

I hope Mr & Mrs Visser had a dreamy day!

An Easter Piñata Cake!

I have been DYING to do one of the “on-trend” unicorn cakes that are all over the internet, but I haven’t had the opportunity*, so when I saw this bunny cake design I decided it would be perfect to do a similar design for our family’s Easter celebration.
I’ve also been dying to do a piñata cake, so I made this a “surprise inside” cake using jelly beans!

Here is the chocolate “giggling bunny” cake I did for my family – full of jelly beans!  I was rushed, so his hands and muzzle aren’t as soft and rounded as I would have wanted, but everyone loved it!
I decorated the cake board with sugar paste carrot tops, and sugar paste Easter eggs.

To protect the jelly beans inside from the moisture of the cake, I made a little “box” with melted chocolate.

*SOMEONE PLEASE ORDER A UNICORN CAKE! 😛
