In The Night Garden - Full View
Not sure if you have this programme & characters in American. In The Night Garden is a very popular childrens programme. Customer wanted a christening cake based around the characters.
I wanted to have a go at the stripe style cake. I had been given a cloour scheme to work with. Decided to add Hellow kitty and birthday girls name to it.
Buzzlight Year - To Infinity & Beyond!
2D buzz using the spaceman wilton cake pan. As I find this pan quite boring I decided to cut the arms & the legs out to give it a bit more movement. I think it worked quite well.
Pooh Bear's Colourfull Circus
Winnie & his friend piglet at the circus. I must say thank you to kaz79 for this idea. The customer was more than happy with it as it more than she requested. So much so that she has since ordered 4 further orders with me :-)
Contemporary Simple Wedding Cake
Customer wanted a simple cake, but one that made a statement. Bow at front & on top modelled freehand and finished with sprays of diamantes. Bride was very happy with overall look.
Burgundy Calla Lillies
Customer wanted a traditional style wedding cake, but with contemporary colouring. Think that the combination of burgundy, gold & ivory works well. Bride was very happy with it. Burgundy colour was custom made.
Cake done for customer who really is like this in the kitchen. I was inspired by Debbie Brown from her book Cakes for Men. I was happy with the way in turned out.
Designer Shoppers Dream
Created for a lady that has a complete passion for fashion & shopping. The Cloe handbag is lemon madeira, the Diesel shoe box is chocolate orange madeira (made with 100% organic cocoa) & the Tiffney boxes are spiced maderia with bailey's buttercream. The ring is edible and can be removed and woven. The sugar shoe was a model of the shoe that the customber actually wore at her birthday party.
Jungle Fun - Monkey
This is just 1 of 3 animals that I have freehand modelled for a jungle cake. I am really happy with it, he looks really cute so I named him 'Morris the monkey'.
Hearts & Butterflies
This cake is the 2nd time it has been ordered, but this time I did cake in the shape of a heart. Butterflies done in florist paste and brushed with shades of luster dust. Paper & letters modelled freehand in fondant.
Pleats & Lillies
Pleated icing done on 3 tier wedding cake. Lillies placed to both sides of cake with strands of bear grass. Rum fruit with rum apricot glaze. All modelled in fondant, lillies done in florist paste. Drapers were dusted with pale gold luster dust. I also made the monogram topper as well.
Cake was done for a customer who wanted cake to match the colours of her outfit she was wearing for her 25th birthday. White, silver & grey/blue. All modelled freehand. Paisley design painted freehand with edible cocoa & petal dusts.
Puma trainers (sneakers), nikey bag & trainers both modelled freehand. Nikey & Puma logo painted freehand using edible cocoa & petal dust. Cake was for a personal fitness instructor. I really enjoyed doing this cake as I didn't realise how realisic the shoe would come out.
Fruits & Nuts 1
Customer not very keen on icing wanted a decorated cake so I came up with the option of fruits & nuts. Cake was a rum fruit cake, I made a rum apricot glaze to attach fruit & nuts & made a rum syrup to glaze fruit & nuts when attached. Then finished off with a thick bow around cake.
Poker - Winning Hand
Done for a 21st birthday, customer wanted a cake that expressed her son's love of poker. Everything seen in the picture is edible... including the money & the cards - 'Straight Royal Flush'. Customer was blown away as she couldn't believe it was cake, and kept asking if her son had to cut it & how to cut it. I was really pleased with the finished look. All modelling done in fondant, satin silver luster dust used on case.
Cake designed as a bottle of Baileys. Label was hand painted with edible cocoa & petal dust. Done for a customer who loves Baileys, but she is currently pregnant so can't drink. So she still managed to have her Baileys without the Baileys.......hee, hee, hee!!!
Music Lover & His Car
Customer wanted a cake that would link both the birthday boys interests, so I came up with this idea. All modelled freehand in fondant.
Done for a lady that is completely mad about scrapbooking. Book covers and sheets that are out of book are fondant, icing on board was done to look like wooden surface. Scissors & rings on side of book are made from pastillage. Edible images used. Cake was Amaretto sponge with Bailey's buttercream.
Elegant Present Cake
Wanted to have a go at the knotted bow tutorial on CC. I think it came out ok. Customer was very happy with it and very amazed that it was icing. Made the top bow slightly different by adding strands of beads and scroll detail on both bow & cake.
Cute No. 9 Cake
Not really a fan of doing number cakes, so to make it exciting I tried todo it as cute as possible. Freehand modelled rabbit, I coved cake in luster dust.
