This was my very first cake assembly..... transporting this cake was a feat! The bottom tier was a vanilla buttercake and the rest were dummies all covered in fondant. The beautiful bride had full reign on the cake, her soon-to-be husband only stressed that whole cake shouldn't pink so I added more lavender and white to fit into the elaborately decorated ballroom... She requested different designs for each tier and lots &lots of cupcakes.... 400 all together
The idea on paper
Doorgifts... Hand painted monogram and a butterly on a printed floral base
Placed in beautiful personalised boxes by the bride.
When I received this order, from the sweetest person ever ~:) for her adorable one year old.... I never thought I'd be sculpting Tweety's face at 3am! The little bird looks easy on paper but I had to re-do it a few times till I was satisfied.....
Tweety perched on a swing which is hanging off a vine creeping up the no.1
All time favourites... Mr.& Mrs. Mouse
Tip: just paint little white dots to their eyes and they'll twinkle.
These were given to her guests. Two large cupcakes fit nicely in this dragonfly & hearts box
I received an email with a very cute request.... you see her dad LOVES his bed and does almost everything on it! So I made a miniature bedset as per the picture she sent me... including headboard, side table and lamp... with the no.66...
Having a cup of coffee with all his paper work next to his silver briefcase...
I had this idea for a Rocker cake a while back but was inspired by the darker haired one Adam who sang the 'Ring of Fire' on American Idol. I thought his version was+magnetic-! I was glued to the screen watching him sing that! and I am not even much of a rock fan.... ~haha~ so he must be really good....
Small details like the flames on the number make each cake unique...
If only we could all be like Barbie..... she tunrs 50 but looks younger by the day!?!
But then again a few wrinkles don't hurt, in fact it adds character to one's full life...
I wanted to do the 'different faces' of Barbie to showcase her beautiful transformation throughout the years but unfortunately the clients were not allowed to consume any products with Barbie (face/figurines) on it... so with the help of the website, decided to do her accessories and logo in cute colours.
Sally made this order all the way from USA....what a loving and thoughtful sister! She had wonderful things to say about Jenny and so incorporated all of her favourite people & things on the little cupcakes like her sons and grand-daughter, designer handbags and shoes, an apron, timber as she runs a logging company and longevity peaches. She is 55 but doesn't look a day over 30! The figurine represents her singing (she loves karaoke) in a glamorous evening gown ...
~that's the beauty of fondant, you can be your own fashion designer extraordinaire~
*my other dream job*
I'm just discovering all these awesome gadgets available for cake decorating... Life has become much easier as well as more fun as I can finally achieve so much more... like intricate details with textures, shapes and contours. For example, the hem of her black gown was made with a lace cutter which cuts the shape and imprints the design of the lace, then I used different nozzle holes to cut and make the lace look even more detailed.
I am NO football fan, now more of a cricket fan (!) but I think the Liverpool FC logo is cool...much more difficult than I anticipated especially trying to get the hand painted 'bird' right. I also liked how the fire turned out moulded with fondant for a livelier look.
Ryan's favourites are Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres so added their names on the FC scarf for a finishing touch.
