Cupcakes and cake for my SIL's surprise baby shower. Cake is 6 inch chocolate mud cake.
Baby Shower Cupcakes
Made these cupcakes for my sis-in-law's surprise baby shower. Vanilla cupcakes with white choc ganache and chocolate cupcakes with choc ganache. Fondant details.
Noah's Ark 1
This was the 'Noah's Ark' cake I made during the workshop with Debbie Brown, here in Melbourne. At the workshop, we were only able to make 2 pairs of animals (elephant and pig). Then when I got home that night, I added another 8 pairs of animals.
All Too Much
This is the 'All Too Much' cake I made in a workshop with Debbie Brown in Sydney, Australia. This was a simplified version of the original as there wasn't enough time to complete the other kid figure models. Sofa and side table are cake.
These are penguins from an online interactive computer game called Club Penguin. My kids love this game, and my daughter requested these for her birthday cupcakes, to take to school. So I did 30 penquins, and 30 puffles (the penguin's pet), whew! They went on top of 30 cupcakes. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a photo of the cupcakes (long story). Sorry, didn't bother to re-arrange a few of those that toppled over, oh well. The orange one that's lying down is actually holding a birthday cake.
Made this for my goddaughter, Leanna. Choc mud cakes in 5 and 8 inch rounds. Covered and decorated in fondant. Wanted to have a 'rope and bead' theme on this cake.
An 8 inch orange flavoured buttercake for my niece, Rachel, who is visiting from Singapore. She turns 7. She loves Winx Club and her favourite is Bloom. This was a surpirse cake for her and she was so delighted when she saw it. Cake covered and decorated in fondant. Bloom's eyes were particularly challenging as I used a thin black rope for the outline. Just wanted to try decorating an image in fondant, for the experience of it. I think next time, I'll settle for royal icing colorflow, haha.
My daughter, Ashley, just turned 9. She's a big fan of Harry Potter. She's read the whole 7-book series, and is reading it again, twice. She's currently on the 5th book. She requested a HP cake, particularly with the Gryffindor seal. Cake is white choc mud cake, and covered in fondant. Seal is also in fondant, royal icing writing. Added a figure model of Harry Potter in clay, which I made for her to keep.
Oliver's Christening Cake
Double stacked 6 inch chocolate mud cakes. Baby booties and big bow are made of modeling fondant.
Made for a birthday girl named Isabella who loves her Nintendogs, and has a labrador named Goldie, and a husky named Fear. A 9 inch chocolate cake covered in fondant. Pattern inspired by a Hallmark gift bag. Dogs, toys, and dog bowl are clay on a fondant board.
A giftbox cake for a cousin, to which my nephew inquired "Is the cake IN the box?" lol! Now, that's a nice compliment :) Original design by Sharon Zambito of Sugarshack. Cake is an 8 inch chocolate mud cake.
My mum's cake, Peggy Porschen style. I did it in brown and pink as I thought it was a 'mature' color combo. Thinking back, I shoud've done the white in pink as well. I was gonna pipe a royal icing rose, but didn't want to make a batch of royal icing just for one rose. ;) Did a simple fondant ribbon rose instead (I still have to learn how to make a proper one). Anyway, mum loved it. It's a 6 inch choc mud cake. All in fondant.
This was for a combined Christening and Dad's 40th birthday celebration. They had a green colour scheme which perfectly matched their party decorations and invitation. The middle tier was decorated using a baby stamp set, and painted with luster dust to highlight. The bottom tier was decorated with a mixture of plain and textured strips. A special thank you to Vera Figueredo for letting me 'borrow' her 'ball on string' design. a> Bottom and top tiers are choc mud cakes and middle tier is white choc mud. Sizes 7,9,11. This was a very heavy cake. Lucky it survived the 45 min trip to the reception.
Trimmed an 8 square choc mud cake to a handbag shape and covered in fondant. Did this in a course with Planet Cake in Sydney, Australia
Bride And Groom
I did it! This is my very first attempt at bride and groom modeling. I've always wanted to learn how to make one of them, so I just went ahead and made one :) I bought ready-made black paste and found it challenging to work with. It was quite soft while I was handling it (I have warm hands). If anyone has any tips/advice with working with black modeling paste, I appreciate your input. Thanks for looking.
An 8 inch choc mud cake covered with fondant and fondant stars on wires. Did this on a course with Planet Cake in Sydney, Australia.
Made this for a cake shop, and modeled from a photo they sent me. He's about 2.5 inches tall and made from modeling fondant.
Dog & Puppy
My first figure model sale - woohoo! Made this for a cake shop who requested a dog and puppy included with their bride and groom topper. Modeled from a photo they sent me. This was a lot of fun.
Chocolate mud cupcakes with easter theme, covered with fondant and fondant decorations with some royal icing (basket, and flowers, grass).
Made this for easter. Found instructions of making the chick on the net, so thanks to whoever made them (sorry I can't remember - I just googled it).
