Imagine being married for 50 years.... more than a whole life time for some of us! Mini cakeART to represent his favourite car, an Austin, golf, her favourite handbag & pearls, their favourite destination and a miniature 2 tier wedding cake which were packed in individual boxes and given as doorgifts to their guests.
An Austin convertible... I had to make 24 of each design, this car 'killed' me as I could not delegate the moulding as they were too intricate so took many, many, MANY hours to complete all the little parts like the grill, bumper and wheels...!
Morocco... Mamafia helped me out with these so not too bad ~TQ~
Golf ball and tee...
Gold clutch and pearls... fun to do! strung fondant pearls with white thread.
I'm hooked on Pocoyo now! I watched it on YouTube in Spanish...didn't understand a word but was amused by these little fellows... I also noticed that the background is always plain and simple (concentrating on the characters) so I smoothed the butter icing in pastel colours and let Pocoyo, Elly and the rest do their 'thang'.
Some food for Elly: a burger, strawberry jam sandwich & strawberry shake.
Pato resting after watering all the daisies while Sleepy Bird gets ready to fly.
I didn't have to do any research for this birthday cake. You see my family are fish lovers...Pa is into Koi and my eldest brother is into tropical fish. They were both marine fish enthusiast at one point so found some old books and files (from the 80's *yikes*, yes we keep useful material in Mamafia's abode for ages...) of all the different fish species....
A trigger fish, a school of sardines and a butterfly fish picking at the corals for morsels of food.
Enjoying lots of champagne after a good dive... with his scuba gear and an approaching turtle....his name neatly scribbled on the sand.
Also added a frangipani as they are celebrating this milestone at the Pangkor Laut Resort where those beautiful dainty flowers are aplenty.
Clown fish galore, anemone, sea horse and another scuba diver creating bubbles to form the no.40.
More fish and coral at the back...there's a surgeon fish in there, somewhere too...
When I got an order for another Star Wars cake I immediately decided that it would look like a poster as I had seen so many amazing ones before.... So did my research on all the planes and battleships and chose the Trade Federation Battleship in the background with Luke, Yoda & Chewy in the foreground. The former 2 turned out well I think but Chewy looks really scary! He was hard to do....
Double chocolate cake with ganache center...
I had the picture of this design in my mind with the midnight sky effect but didn't know how to execute it as I haven't been for any formal decorating classes so as usual Mamafia came to the rescue. She went for classes in the 70's and she still remembered... and had lots of handy tips to give me...
Tip: After pumping black butter icing, place patches of blue and cream icing in clumps. Press them down in a smudgy way, then use a spatula to spread it out ~artistically~ to give that marbled effect.
