Ella’s Christening cake

Remember the dragon baby Full Moon cake I did recently for Ella? Now I had the opportunity to make one for her Christening! Her lovely parents left the design up to me. After some thought, I decided to try out one of the cake design from Debbie Brown’s baby cakes. I love the cakes in that book!!

Lightning Mcqueen theme birthday cake

Boys and cars!! I reckon  all boys love car!! In the last week alone, I made 2 car themed cakes for 2 birthday boys. This week, I had the honor to make a Lightning Mcqueen theme cake, one of the more popular cars themes among the kids!!
but
I have fun trying a few decorating technique in this cake.
This Lightning Mcqueen topper was firstly carved out from styrofoam, then covered with fondant for decoration and finally, I applied the detail and touch up. I have to say I was quite pleased with the result..

I even customised the Cars logo with the birthday boy’s name.

Hoot! Hoot!

This cake was made for Zach, the birthday boy whom I just made the teddy bear picnic cupcake towers for. His lovely mommy organised a birthday party for him on the weekend with the cupcake tower and then had another celebration on the actual birth date with another cake. What a blessed child!!!

The cake design is a duplica of the Hoot cake from Blissfully Sweet as requested by Zach's mum.
Thanks Jacki for giving me the permission to copy your cake design!
I’m pleased that Zach and his family enjoy the cake and the little birthday boy was happy to see the hoot hoot on his birthday cake Smile

Special shoes for the man in my life

This is a very special cake for the man in my life who loves sport shoes!!!

IMG_5790Always the shoes he likes are all so beyond my budget (yes he has really high taste with shoes!!!), so I rarely can afford to get him one. This year though despite of the hectic schedule I decided to make him a cake in the form of shoes he likes.

sport shoes cakeI decided to just make a small cake since we have been loaded with a lot of cakes recently. So this shoes cake is in kids size 4. This is my 1st attempt of shoes cake. When he shown me the photos of the shoes he likes – NIKE Kobe VII 7 WBF, at first glace it looks quite a simple design, but when I zoom in the detail, I was shocked to find out this shoes has so much of detail from its textures to its shoes laces!!! It took me quite sometimes to put up the detail but I’m quite happy with the end result.

Happy and  blessed birthday darling! This is the only “shoes” close to your dream shoes that I can afford for now!! Hope you like it Smile

Rose bouquet wedding cake

It had a rather interesting caking week this week doing totally different theme cakes. The former is a kid’s theme birthday cake and this is a elegant wedding cake.

This is my latest wedding cake. Design is inspired by Bella Cupcakes (Vanessa Iti).

Bouquet on the top tier is based on bridal’s bouquet and the diamond buckle in the middle tier is a similar buckle in bridal gown.

This is one of the cakes that I spent a lot of time on it mainly due to the rose bouquet. This rose bouquet on the top tier is based on bridal’s bouquet. It is all handmade and there are over 80 roses in that bouquet!! I’m glad that it turns out as what I want it to be, so all the effort has been paid off.

IMG_5631

And this is my first time playing with stencil! It is rather messy to begin with but I have learned a few tips throughout the process. Hopefully in near future I can try out more stencil design on the cake and can achieve even better result.

Oh, did I mention that this is not a real cake? All the 3 tiers are dummy cakes as per request by the bride.

IMG_5682

This 3 tiers dummy wedding cake is for hire as well! If you are under budget for your wedding cake but would love to have a beautiful elegant cake for cake cutting ceremony and display, you can consider hiring this cake from me and perhaps with some kitchen cakes to serve!
