A Bit of Butter Icing Experimenting…

It was actually an order for Jeanette’s son for his paintball birthday party. He wanted a camo-theme but he didn’t want sugar paste, so I decided to try something I’ve been mulling over for a while, a three-colour butter icing swirl!
I tell you what – I was very pleased with the result but hells BELLS I had such a cramp in my hand when I was finished!

I must find a better way to pipe it on so that I can offer it for anyone to order…

Birthday Cake and Cupcakes

Marike and Curtis celebrated their 21st birthday with a cake and cupcakes in a green, white and silver colour scheme.

The chocolate and vanilla cupcakes were in silver paper cups, and topped with marshmallow icing in shades of pale mint green.
The chocolate cake was filled with dark chocolate ganache, covered with a pale green sugar paste and decorated with a sugar paste bow and pearls.

On The Road…

My nephew just turned 2, and he’s loving the Disney CARS movie at the moment!

For his birthday, I did a chocolate cake, filled it with caramel, and covered it with green vanilla butter icing “grass”. Then I added a sugarpaste road across the middle of the cake, added some sugarpaste stones and sprinkle gravel, and put his name on the side in sugarpaste letters.
We added a of toy car to complete the look and he had rainbow candles to blow out.

He loved it! As soon as we showed it to him he reached up and stuck his fingers into the road, adding “potholes” for good measure!
