Gianluca turned 2 and loves hippos! So I made him a little sprinkle cake with a handmade fondant hippo on top. A few fondant balloons and the #2 were the finishing touches for the cake. The cake was vanilla with strawberry buttercream inside.
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.
When one of my previous customers came to me and asked me to make all the goodies for her 40th birthday because she loved my work, I couldn’t say no. I knew that whatever she wanted was going to be pretty and elegant. She didn’t disappoint.
Her vision started with a beautiful fondant pleated two tier, gluten free cake. The vanilla cake featured strawberry buttercream inside. The outside was adorned with white pleated fondant and several gumpaste flowers in pinks and whites. The cake was topped with a pink glitter paper topper that read “40 & Fabulous.”
To continue the gluten free theme, I made some home made gluten free rice krispie treats. I dipped the treats in white chocolate and drizzled light pink chocolate on top and sprinkled pink sugar pearls on top while the chocolate was still wet. How cute are these? They were perfect for the kids at the party.
Each guest plate feature an owl sugar cookie (also gluten free) that was wrapped in cellophane, tied with a light pink ribbon with a custom designed tag that read, “So Sweet of You To Come.”
If all this wasn’t enough, we added some beautiful white chocolate covered oreos, drizzled with white chocolate and topped with a fondant rose and pink sugar pearls.
Finally, as a surprise, my client wanted a BBQ shaped cake for her dad, who was turning 60 that same day! How adorable is this cake? The cake was a chocolate cake with cookie butter buttercream. Could it get any tastier?? Fondant food was included. What a great idea!
I loved this order so much! I loved how everything looked together. The colors all meshed perfectly. Everything was simple, pretty and elegant.
The client added a few other treats from others and I set up the dessert table for her. I love doing that! It is so satisfying to see the finished product all together.
