The cake is vanilla madeira cake with Italian Meringue Buttercream filling. The accents are all free hand painted using petal dusts and alcohol and also paste colouring. The passport is made from Flower Paste/Gumpaste and also dusted and hand painted. Glazed with Confectioner glaze for the final effect.
This Is Hectorwho Is Made Entirely Of Rice Krispie Treats And Fondant No Internal Supports Were Used This Is Actually The First Dog C
This is Hector...who is made entirely of Rice Krispie Treats and fondant. No internal supports were used. This is actually the first dog cake I've made, guided only by the photo of the real dog offered by the client and is part of two cakes, the other of which is the dog's bowl, bone and squeaky toy. A lot of fun...I'd do it again.
Forgive Me ~ Froggy
A little underwater fun with fondant and Tylose added. No moulds, no gumpaste. All hand made and edible.
Beauty And The Beast Theme Without The Characters To Prove It I Was Inspired By The Many Wedding Cakes That I See With The Brides Gown Be
Beauty and the Beast theme without the characters to prove it! I was inspired by the many wedding cakes that I see with the bride's gown being interpreted as the bottom tier and a tuxedo type top tier. I thought that this idea would work for what I had in mind....and I think it surely did. I had a lot of fun with this as it's so far away from my usual figure modelling techniques.
Two Madeira Cakes Covered In Chocolate Ganache And Sugarpaste The Top Of The Hat Is A Cake Board Covered In Sugarpaste And All Stuck Toget
Two madeira cakes covered in chocolate ganache and sugarpaste. The top of the hat is a cake board covered in sugarpaste and all stuck together with royal icing. No idea what the certificate should have said so I took it upon myself to make it up as I went along!
Hamish The Highland Cow
Made with fondant and CMC (Tylose) gum powder added. A cute little Scottish hairy cow...maybe not popular all over the world but I dare you not to smile!
Created by hand using sugarpaste/fondant with CMC/Tylose powder added. Babies always have the "aw" factor...this one made me smile
Made with sugarpaste mixed with CMC which is the same as fondant and tylose. Free hand painted tee shirt logo taken from an actual tee shirt. No room for error doing this...just hold your breath and hope for the best!
Another figure model with Sugarpaste and CMC added. The addition of the tortoise..or turtle..is just to make things a little more quirky, none of the usual cats and dogs for pets, right? I enjoyed creating this one.
Love You Bear
Cute topper just in time for Valentine's Day! Sugarpaste and CMC (Tylose), hand made. :o)
Oh dear...this ugly dude is made from Krispie Treats and stuck on top of a chocolate cake filled with chocolate fudge...but I'll bet you're still picking yourself up off the floor with the shock of this one...right? Dare I tell you that this was for my 6 year old grandson who just LOVED it. What happened to Thomas the Tank Engine and Curious George? I think I am well behind the times....
Bride And Groom
I did this piece for display at the NEC Cake International in Birmingham, UK so now the couple will be used for workshops. All sugarpaste and CMC as always, everyone loves a Bride and Groom!
Had fun with this one...pity this hunky man is in sugar form! Don't know that he exists in real life, maybe if you replace the sandwich with a beer bottle it would be nearer the truth. Lol! As usual, all modelling done by hand using sugarpaste (fondant) and CMC added (tylose). I'm off to Nigeria next week to demo this little man...woohooo!
A little cartoon fun with fondant! All new for 2012....I'm getting a little bit ahead of the game, I think!
I'm teaching this in Florida this year. Can't wait, it was a fun little piece to do. All fondant and Tylose mixed.
A little seasonal tutorial this time....but a standing figure can adapted for any theme. I had fun with this one. All edible....all fondant and tylopur mix.
This is a little tutorial. A cheeky little cow if I say so myself! Completely edible...but who would want to eat her?
Bride In Green
This is for a real bride but I'll surely be using her dress again in a workshop at some point. Thinking I might adapt this for my cowboy bride and groom for Austin in February. Yeah...sweet!
This is one of the classes I'll be teaching in Seattle in September. I may just add a few more little details to this though....
Another class subject....I say the same things on all of my photos these days, don't I! I need to think up a new script!
This is another class project so for the moment this will be tucked away in a box until it's time to promote it.
