Labyrinth Mural Cake
Through dangers untold, and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle, beyond the Goblin City, to take back the child that you have stolen. My will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom as great. You have no power over me. Labyrinth is in my opinion one of the greatest movies ever made, and it certainly played a big part in my life growing up. When I first had the idea of creating a Buttercream Labyrinth Cake, it was for something far more simple, and 2 dimensional, but I don't like to do anything by halves, so not only did I aim for 3D, but 100% Buttercream. I am so very proud of this cake. Not only because it looks good, but because it would have been so easy to settle. I could have made something with a hint of Labyrinth, and it would still have looked good, but I took the risk, and put SO much work into a cake that I had no idea what reception it would get. I'm thrilled to say that the response has been overwhelming, and while it's nice to hear nice things about your work, what is even better, is hearing how many people are inspired to try something DIFFERENT. Something outside their comfort zone, or what they thought could be done. That just fills me with so much joy. I'm also thrilled to hear people trying things by hand. We are losing far too many 'skills' because there's a tool/mould/gadget for that, and while I appreciate innovation, I'm energised by true Artisan efforts. I'm trying to sound preachy, but I personally am more moved or impressed by a work that has created at every step of the process. I hope you enjoy "Labyrinth Mural Cake", and I will have a blog post coming this week about how I put it all together <3
Naked And Gold Birthday Cake
I whipped myself up a birthday cake and threw every cake trend I could think of at it. The naked cake is covered with Swiss meringue buttercream. The drip is royal icing painted gold. The wafer paper flower was edged with gold and the double barrel bottom tier was covered with edible gold leaf. Completely over the top but very delicious!
Gluten Free Vanilla Cake
This was a little test cake that I made this weekend. I tried out a gluten free vanilla cake recipe before making it for a friend later this week. I halved the recipe and made a little 5" two layer cake. I tink I have OCD (Obsessive Cake Disorder) as rather than simply icing it then slicing it for a taste, I decided to decorate it with the leftover blue buttercream from my kayak cake and some of the extra fondant flowers I have on hand after doing the cupcakes last weekend. I also tried out a new butercream comb on the sides. Ideally it should have been baked an additional few minutes but other than that, no complaints. It has a nice texture and taste and baked higher than I expected of a gluten free cake. Because it was only for me I didn’t trim the bottom of the cakes off to make it look all pretty when cut.
Word seems to be spreading that I make cakes as this was for a co-worker of one of my boyfriend’s friends, someone that I do not know. Lol. She wanted a kayak themed cake for her daughter’s 15th birthday. My original idea was for the kayak to be the cake until she sent me pictures of the kayak. Racing kayaks are very skinny and with the dimensions too hard to make it a cake unless it was like 3 feet long. So instead I did my best to model one out of gumpaste for on a simple 9×12″ cake. I don’t know the correct terms for everything but the handle part of the paddle is two toothpicks glued together then painted black and the ends of it are gumpaste. To incorporate the aquatic club’s logo, I used yellow fondant to cover the cake board because the logo is black on yellow. Almost immediately after the cake was delivered (by my boyfriend) I received a very nice email to say she was (thankfully) thrilled with it.
This cupcake cake is such a timeless design, and super cute to boot! Perfect for a childs birthday, or even a baby shower! Thanks for looking!
Reggie, My Friends Old English Sheepdog
Reggie chewing his rosette.This cake was made with alternating vanilla, and buttermilk chocolate sponge layers. The head was all chocolate which is what Reggie's owners asked for. Reggie has become a Show Champion and this was to celebrate that fact at another show. We all had cake and a tipple as long as we were not driving. In his paw he is holding a sparkler which we could not light (health and safety brigade)
