Snow White Cake

This Snow white cake was for the most adorable little princess, ''Snow White Tilly". My cute little niece turned 4 last week and celebrated her birthday with a princess party yesterday. I loved seeing her little face light up when she saw her birthday cake! I also loved seeing her eat her cake. She got chocolate all over her little face, but she was careful to brush the crumbs off her beautiful princess dress! She then proceeded to eat bites out of all the pieces of cake that were about to be served up to the adults! Can't ask for a happier little customer than that. Now I wonder whether she is still in her princess dress? I think it might have taken a lot to get her into her pj's last night!

Thomas The Tank

There is something very special about 1st Birthdays. Such a milestone for both parents and babies! My first cake this week was a Thomas themed number 1 cake. Mahhesh's mummy came up with a great design. She took ideas from various cakes, and I just adapted it all to create his cake. I loved making the figures and using such bright colours. It was such a large cake I had trouble photographing it!

James the Tank Engine

I am looking forward to making this weekends cakes but it is going to busy, as we are on the edge of wedding season! One of the cakes I am making is a Thomas themed cake for a first Birthday. As figure work is quite time consuming I made the sugar figures for the Thomas cake today. The faces are quite tricky to do, but I love the colours of James, so here is a preview.

Black and White

I love the look of black on a white cake as the contrast seems to make it ''pop''. Happy 50th Birthday to Johny! His elegant black and white themed party is tonight and his wife ordered this cake from me as an extra surprise for him. It was taken all the way to the central coast from Dural this afternoon. This is chocolate mud cake with happy celebration stars and black swirls. The one thing about black fondant is there is no room for error. Once that black stains the white, there is no going back! Despite that extra pressure I enjoyed making this cake, I hope they enjoy eating it too.

Eat your Cake too!

I make a lot of cakes, but it is not often that I get to eat them! This may be a good thing for my hips but my taste buds miss out! I made this cake for my brother as we had a special dinner for him last night. This is how they served up the cake and I have to say it was yummo! Behind us in a little private room Matthew Clarke (Cricketer) was having a function. Maybe I should have sent him in a piece.....nah.....too yum to give away! So here is the picture of the inside for a change. It is a strawberry, vanilla and chocolate cake, covered in buttercream frosting.

Being a bit of a rainy day, I decided to have a go making Cake Pops. I had some left over cake, so I thought I would give it a go. I mixed cake crumbs with some buttercream until moist. Then I rolled the cake into balls and put them in the fridge for a bit. I added the sticks, then dipped in white chocolate. It was just like making truffles. Then added the sprinkles. Warning: if you attempt to do these with a 2 year old "helping" you will end up with sprinkles EVERYWHERE! I am quite addicted to these and I would like to make them again. I will use smaller balls and proper lollypop sticks next time as they are by no means perfect. I would like to play around with the colour of the chocolate. I am not sure whether people would buy these, but they are yum and so much fun to make!

Noah's Ark Cupcakes

These Noah's Ark themed cupcakes were for a Mummy to be, who is having her baby shower today. The two by two animal theme suited the party as she is having twins! I had a lot of fun making the little animals, especially the elephants and hippos. I have a feeling she is having a boy and a girl.....who knows, how exciting to wait and see!
Cupcakes have been the popular theme at the moment. Though next week we have a graduation cake and the wedding cake orders are building up too. I have been inspired by the Masterchef v8 cake, so I am looking forward to doing some experimenting of my own. Now who wants to be a guinea pig??
