VW Beetle..... Happy 50th Cathy

The birthday girl has a couple of loves and one favourite is 'Boris' the beautifully restored VW Beetle.  I did a little research, i.e Facebook, to assist with the details and the decorated base of the cake  replicates the car's upholstery.

The cake itself is a classic vanilla cake, covered with buttercream and decorated with fondant.

Garden Party

I love this cake.......

Four little girls all celebrate their birthdays within days of each other, and I was asked to make a cake for the occasion.  I was given creative freedom, and decided upon a 'garden party'.
A mini Birthday Cake!

The cake is marbled White Velvet covered with buttercream.   I handmade all elements of the cake and it's 100% edible, even the garden table is a miniature cake.

The cake was accompanied by mini cupcakes.
Vanilla Cupcakes topped with handmade fondant strawberries.

60th Birthday

When asked to make this cake the only request I received was to have a couple of 'things' coming out of the cake. So I put my imagination to work - three simple colours of pink, yellow and white featuring some handmade frangipanis,  some floating butterflies and a little 'bling' for detail.

The cake itself is a Passionfruit Mud Cake.

Papa Smurf

A blast from my childhood past;- Papa Smurf..... who I believe has made a bit of come-back.  Hidden underneath the hand carved Papa Smurf is a vanilla and chocolate marble cake.

Happy 40th Big Sis'

My sister has hit the big '40', or is it the new 30?

To celebrate the occasion I made a Devils Food cake filled with dark chocolate ganache and decorated coloured fondant to match the party colour scheme.   I handmade all the decorations which are 99.99% edible - the butterflies are floating on floral wire.  

Happy Birthday Allison!

Happy "Diamond" Birthday - 60th
