Made yet another nautical themed cake. This was my daughter's request for my grandsons 1st birthday. Also first time making a smash cake too. Lenny wasn't enamored with his smash cake.

Hamburger Cake For Chris
A hamburger cake has been one those on my "to do" list. It's my son, Chris's birthday, and I wanted to make something, fun, fast and easy. Thank goodness I baked too much cake and cupcakes a little bit ago and froze. And I also had extra icing on hand as well. Both good insurance for a decorator. I got a dreadful cold, leading to a chest infection, so having cake and icing on backup saved me. I looked at many cakes for guidance, and I used a tutorial by Wicked Goodies as reference. It was very helpful. Cake was vanilla champagne and the hamburger pattie is chocolate brownie cupcakes mixed with buttercream. French fries are toasted cake ends, and ketchup is piping gel and food colouring.

Hubby's Tropical Birthday Cake
s cake. I've never carved or shaped a stacked cake. So, decided I had to go for a rustic fun look, rather than the perfectly shaped pineapple I couldn't achieve. Cake is, of course pineapple, filled with pineapple curd and pineapple bc. Used a small square cutter to create the marks on the pineapple, dusted with colour dust to look realistic. Leaves are made from coffee filter paper. Wanted to create a tropical look to match the pineapple, so added two dummy tiers. Bottom tier, marble fondant effect tiles. 2nd tier bark/crackle effect using wafer paper. Used tutorial by Angela Morrison. Hibiscus is made from clay craft clay, free formed. Plumeria flowers are gumpaste. Finally got to use the bargoon barn board wallpaper I bought for the background.
