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!

Hulk! Smash!

This green vanilla cake, filled with cream cheese icing, was made as a gift for my nephew’s 7th birthday party!
He had a superhero party, so I made it to look like Hulk’s fist smashing through the ground!
My nephew was thrilled with it!

Cake Designs!

I’ve been working on cake designs with complimentary cupcake toppers, and working out prices to go with them. This way you can pick a cake design and cupcakes to match, and I have some creative freedom to get my art on!
I have even come up with designs for a “Winnie-the-Pooh” and “Strawberry Shortcake” that won’t infringe on their copyright!
What do you think?

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! 😂

Boy or Girl

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!
