New Zealand Cake
Suitcase for a guy who is moving to New Zealand. Found a sample New Zealand passport and incorporated his pic, name, date of birth and the town he is moving to. Everything is edible. Red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. Thanks for looking.
Made for my friend who loves loves loves anything with cherries. Marzipan cake with cream cheese frosting (her two other favourite things!!). Thanks for looking.
Toblerone With Stuffed Strawberries
OK, so ever since the stuffed strawberries thread I've been wanting to try them. They were really fun to make. Toblerone cheesecake with strawberries stuffed with the same cheesecake.
Hazlenut And Pistachio Cream Cheese Cake
This is my own concoction of a hazlenut and pistachio cream that I made into a cheesecake. It then has a hazlenut and pistachio filling layer on top and then a layer of chocolate ganache. Spun sugar and sugar dipped hazlenuts on top. This cake was so delicious!! I'm enjoying a piece right now. Everyone absolutely loved it. Not for the calorie concious though!!!
My friend wanted a "housey" looking cake for her friend who has just recently bought a house. And this is what I came up with. Had a lot of fun making this cake!!
Blue Birthday Cake
One of Martha's cakes which I wanted to have a go at. I'm pretty happy with how it came out but I didn't let the choc melt enough and it caused me trouble when I was piping as little chunks kept getting stuck. Might have another go at it.
Anniversary cake I made for me and my DH. Inspired by one of Collette's cakes although nowhere near her standard. I was really happy with how it turned out.
21St Birthday Cake
Really nervous about this cake. It's my first big order. Three layers of chocolate mud cake on the bottom cake filled with vanilla frosting and whole pitted cherries. I carved the numbers and filled them with vanilla frosting and blueberries. Both covered in fondant.
I'm pretty proud of this because I drew it free hand. I don't know how to draw (except stick men) so I was pretty pleased with this. It a red velvet cake with white icing and then cream cheese frosting. I've put little sprinkles in all the different parts of the face.
I was so excited that I finally had a chance to make this cake!! I'm so happy with how it turned out. Sooo much inspiration from the talented people here and a great big thank you to franjmc for her fabulous bow tutorial. Choc Fudge cake, vanilla filling with raspberries. Covered in choc frosting. Covered in white chocolate fondant. Bow and strips also white choc fondant.
Not too sure if you guys have heard of Hi-5. They are a children's group/show kind of like the Wiggles and Barney. Kids here go crazy over them and this is their logo. It's a choc fudge cake with vanilla filling and raspberries, choc frosting and fondant. Name spelled out with fondant. I'm really happy with how this cake turned out. My kids are asking for one for them too!!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake
This is a chocolate peanut butter cake with peanut butter ganache filing and cream cheese icing. The client didn't want too much frosting so I had to make it a really thin layer.
OK, so I had no idea where I was going with this cake. I make all the cakes for work and pretty much have free reign on how they look and what flavours to use. This is for a guy at work who I don't really know what his interests are. It's orange cake, orange filling and orange BC. Chocolate swirls (or whatever they're called) on top painted gold with gold sanding sugar around the top edges. I think it turned out OK.
I gave the wrong dimensions for the cake board so it ended up being shorter than I wanted. Pretty OK with how it turned out although I wish I could get things as smooth as everyone else here. Oh well, I hope he likes it. It's for my 1st cousin's hubby.
Purple Birthday Cake
This is my first attempt at a tiered cake. I had so much fun making it. It's for my DB. Each tier is three layers and is my chocolate fudge cake with dulce de leche on one layer and vanilla frosting and raspeberries on the other layer. Covered with chocolate frosting and fondant. Decorations are gumpaste. Can't wait to get some more practice. All comments/criticisms are welcome as anything will help me get better. Also, I had sooooo much inspiration from everyone here on CC!! Thank you!!
Let's Play Cards
Really starting to like fondant although I have no idea on completely smoothing out all sides of a round cake! This is my secret recipe chocolate fudge cake (three layers) with buttercream filling and frozen raspberries, chocolate buttercream on the top and sides and then covered with fondant and fondant cut outs.
I am really proud of this cake. I was inspired by so many people here on CC especially rlsaxe (although she/he probably wouldn't want to be associated with this cake as it doesn't do their cake ANY justice). But I am happy with how it turned out. It was my first real attempt with fondant. It's chocolate fudge cake with buttercream filling and frozen raspberries and chocolate buttercream frosting.
Floral Birthday Cake
Three layer butter cake with caramel filling in one layer, and cream cheese frosting and fresh strawberries in the other layer. Topped with cream cheese frosting and sugar flowers.
Mother's Day Flowers
This is the bouquet of flowers cake with the chocolate tag and butterflies that I made. The cake went down a real treat!
The guy this was for is a cricket fanatic (not too sure if youguys know what that is, it's a very popular sport here is Australia, England and India). So I used FBCT to pipe some of the equipment like a bat, stumps and a pad with a little ball underneath. Chocolate mud cake with Lemon curd filling and topped with ganache.
This is my boss's fave. Every time we have cake he always says "It better be black forest!". So it's finally his birthday today and he's getting his cake!
