Tahlia's Birthday Cake

Tahlia's Birthday Cake.

This cake is for a little girl who loves Barbie!
Wasn't quite sure what I was going to do at short notice
(the order came in Wednesday afternoon from the grandmother
.....thanks to Rhu from Pimp my Cakes... who was busy and passed my details on! x)
so I made a quick model last night to represent the Birthday girl in a beautiful Barbie dress!

Grandmother picked it up first thing this morning and loved it!
.....I even got a great big hug! LOL!

Abbie & Dom's Wedding Tower

A Wedding Cupcake Tower
for a lovely couple who got married yesterday! The weather was lovely and sunny
and the reception was held on the waterfront in Christchurch
at www.thejetty.co.uk
just beautiful!
Teal and White is a beautiful colour combination
and when decorated with daisies, seashells & pearls....perfect!
they wanted a splash of orange in there somewhere,
so I added orange daisy centres.
The cupcakes were Vanilla & creamy Buttercream,
Rich Chocolate & Dark Chocolate Ganache,
The top cake is a 6" Rich & Boozy Fruit cake
decorated to match the cupcakes. I love this design,
simple daisies and shells look so gorgeous together
.........and so fresh!

Hydrangea Cupcakes

Some quick cupcakes just to show off
my beautiful new Hydrangea cutters!
I ordered these the end of last week from Italy,
 from a very talented friend of mine Toni (Le Torte di Toni)
and they arrived today,
pretty good delivery time too hey!
Toni is an amazing young lady,
she won a TV Cookery competition
(which was quite a tough, long and what I would believe
an emotional experience!)
 This show was Italy's equivalent to Masterchef!
Please note that she has only lived in Italy for about 10 years
as she is originallyy from Australia
So she must be darn good!!!
Toni won her own TV series (along with her beautiful daughter)
making and decorating cakes!
Just how amazing is that!!!
Well, I just had to get the flowerpaste out and try them out!
I am sure you will agree they are beautiful flowers!!!

Flower Encased Cameo Wedding Cake

This simple designed cake would look fabulous at any
Vintage Styled Wedding,
big or small!
Each tier has a border of sugar pearls highlighted with lustre
and the top tier has a triple layer blossom
in pistachio green (a favourite of mine)
with a slight ruffle effect
and a cameo as the centre.

Last weekends Birthday cake.
A returning customer asked for a number 5 cake for their son 
in the theme of "Safari"
to go with the tableware they are having at his party!
(I love returning customers! such a nice feeling that they liked the last cake so much they order again!)
Don't get me wrong! number cakes are fine,
but they can look a little boring at times,
so I wanted to make this fun
..........and have got to say I really loved making it.
I have totally changed my mind about them now
and can't wait for someone to order another!

This cake was a triple layer chocolate cake
filled and coated with chocolate ganache
covered & decorated with fondant pieces
and hand modeled sugar tree, monkey, snake and crocodile!
All sat on a 14" x 16" cake board.

Flute & Piano Inspired Giant Cupcake

This was Thursday's Birthday cake order
for a musically talented young lady turning 18.

Her mother asked for a cake in the design of a giant cupcake,
Pink, with influence from the instruments she plays,
so I designed this!
......everything here is edible, 
(except for the three small wires at the end of the flute)
 even the flute is sugar (flowerpaste)
I am really very pleased with the results
and more importantly the Birthday girl and her mother loved it!

The cake itself is Lemon flavour.
