Doggie Birthday Cakes

I am not sure what bread these dogs most look like, but I know they are mischevious little chocolate brown puppies! I had a bit of fun with these ones as I think my inspiration came from a book I used to be read as a child. "The Pokey Little Puppy". I think it was a Golden book and it was one of my favourites. So in true pokey little puppy style, one of my puppies bottom is sticking in the air, digging away. I created the ''dirt'' by colouring some caster sugar granules. Complete with little bones and puppy prints these are for a birthday party tonight, but could suit many occasions. I must dig that book out and read it to my son. Sorry about the bad pun.....

Puppy Cupcakes

Sandra is a dog lover, so for her Bithday her friends ordered some puppy themed cupcakes for her as a surprise. With a girlie pink and green theme, this is what I cam up with. They are vanilla cupcakes, covered in white chocolate ganache and then fondant. I had fun dusting her name with edible gillter too!

Army of Frogs

A recent frog loving customer ordered 75 frog themed cupcakes for her Birthday party. It was quite a sight to see so many lined up on my kitchen bench! These were individually wrapped as little thank you gifts for every guest. I love that idea so I am now sourcing new little boxes that would be perfect for an individual cupcake gift.

Sam and Pete's Wedding

What a beautiful wedding and a gorgeous bride! I loved making this cake for my friend Sam and her lovely husband Peter. This is a 3 tier chocolate mud cake, covered in chocolate ganache. It is covered in ivory coloured fondant, with about 150 little white flowers. Each tier is separated with a ribbon covered block, which gives it a special and heightened look. It fit in perfectly at the reception, held at Wolfies in the Rocks. It is wonderful to be there to see one my cakes cut, eaten and enjoyed. Congratulations guys!
