This year's family Christmas cake was a bright and festive nativity scene, complete with handmade figures and of course the three wise men bearing gifts.

Although, my youngest niece (McKenzie - 2yrs old) was a little concerned I put baby Jesus on the grass.

Uncle Nee Naw

Yes it's Uncle Nee Naw's Birthday (aka Blue Dog or Wayne)! Firstly 'Nee Naw' is the name our niece, Ruby (4) has chosen because fire engines make a 'nee naw' sound and  yes Uncle Wayne is a firefighter.

This year's birthday cake was also designed by Ruby, who has been drawing pictures of Uncle Nee New's cake for weeks now - I didn't want to disappoint.  So the compromise was a caramel mud cake, Wayne's choice, with Ruby's design.

Happy Birthday Laura!

My niece, Laura, is celebrating her 19th Birthday and what a great excuse to make a cake.  

Aiming to please Laura and the instructions of my little niece Ruby (4 yrs), I baked a white chocolate mud cake covered it with white chocolate ganache and decorated to please both girls - Laura's favourite colours and Ruby wanted marble and roses.  Making the roses I was a little unsure of the lime green roses but I actually think it works.

Gears of War

I received a birthday cake order this week which left me wondering........

After some research I found the requested design represents a character from the X-Box game 'Gears of War'.

The cake itself is Devils Food cake, hand carved to shape, filled with dark chocolate ganache and covered with fondant. It was 'fun' getting the fondant around the edge of the cake with all the corners.
