This hot pink drip cake was made for a special lady turning 60. Inside was a vanilla sponge cake with vanilla buttercream and fresh strawberries. White chocolate was used as the drip and then hand painted gold for an extra pop of colour. Macarons and sugar flowers adorn the cake. As well as the gold glitter topper.
Two weeks, two cakes with macarons! This Sweet 16 cake had a bit of a twist with meringue kisses and stars. The cake was a lemon cake with raspberry buttercream filling all covered in a sky blue buttercream with hints of pink and white buttercream to create a watercolor effect.
Simple and sweet.
This year has been the year that we all turn 40. It’s been a year of parties. Some more special than the other.
When my best friend, that I’ve known since I was 6, asked me to make her birthday cake, I knew I couldn’t say no. BUT there was a twist. It was a two in one cake! Not only was it her 40th birthday cake, it was also her 15th wedding anniversary cake.
The theme was Alice in Wonderland and macarons (because those are her favorite things). She wanted a naked cake, BUT it needed to be a bit funky, so I made different colors inside.
And because you can’t have an Alice in Wonderland topper on an anniversary cake, I made a second topper specific for their wedding anniversary.
Happy birthday my dear friend and happy anniversary. May you have many many more years ahead of adventures.
Another school year has come to a close, which means a lot of new graduates.
I put together these cute black glitter card stock toppers for a set of graduation cupcakes. Quick and easy, but they looked great on top of some teal colored buttercream icing and a confetti cake cupcakes.
The other half of the cupcakes were teacher themed fondant toppers that included a graduation hat, some books, a ruler, an apple and chalkboards.
Congratulations to all. Wishing you continued success in the future.
Sometimes when you get asked to make the same themed cake (this year it’s Unicorns), the designs can become dated and repetitive.
Luckily, I have the best clients who always challenge me. I’m not really into figure modelling so when my client asked if I could make a unicorn cake with a modeled unicorn on top, I was a bit scared. BUT… I knew that I could do it.
And so was born Miss Unicorn. It did take a few tries to get her arms and legs just right and her head wanted to keep drooping forward, but nothing a toothpick and a few days of drying couldn’t fix. A few cute flowers in her hair to hold back her mane and she was ready for the party.
Miss Unicorn needed a cake of course so I made her a vanilla cake surrounded in strawberry buttercream. Inside was a strawberry rhubarb jam filling. YUMMY!!!
I love the way the strawberries make lines through the buttercream and look all artistic. I added some clouds and OF COURSE a rainbow. I did look at the end of the rainbow, no pot of gold unfortunately, maybe next time! LOL.
Happy 5th birthday little Aarya. I hope you and Miss Unicorn have a fun filled day.
