Lustre And Blush Wedding Cake
This wedding cake was a real collaboration between the bride and I. She came to me with a few images but left the final decisions up to me and this is what we came up with! The top three tiers were painted with pearl lustre and each of the ruffle flowers on the bottom tier (there were hundreds......) were dusted with dry lustre. It shimmered beautifully in the light. The flowers matched the bride's bouquet, well as much as I could make them match! I love this cake and I'm very proud - I've been very unwell and this was my first wedding cake in a long time.
Black And Gold Wedding Cakes
Here's our finished wedding cake table, all edibles made by me! I wouldn't recommend that any bride makes her own cakes, it was stressful and other things got neglected because I was so busy with them. Despite this, I'm really proud of what I achieved and the cakes were a real talking point at the wedding.
Gold And Black Birthday Cake
The fourth cake at our wedding was my 40th birthday cake. The large black ruffles were edged with gold and the stand set it off beautifully. The topper wasn't my best work but it was quick and easy to knock up the week of our wedding.
Gold Sequined Cake In A Cake
Wedding cake number 3 for my own wedding (yes I went a little crazy..). I wanted to try and create my own sequined cake but only had time to make a teeny tiny one so thought what better way to dress it up than to pop it into it's own gold cake!
Gold And Black Wedding Cake
My own wedding cake number two! The gold and black were painted on with the gold sprinkles attached with piping gel. I made the topper to compliment the rest of our wedding.
Chalkboard Wedding Cake
I made this cake for my own wedding! Our wedding had a lot of chalkboard elements so it was an easy decision to reflect that in one of our cakes. The gold accent tied in with the rest of the decor and the wafer paper flowers were an easy way for this reasonably stressed bride to finish off the cake.
Naked Cake Love
Eight layers of peppermint choc mud cake goodness made up this gorgeous cake! The swiss meringue buttercream had a minty tang as well and I put crushed up peppermint crisps in between each layer. The fresh flowers were mostly orchids and a florist I most definitely am not! Love this cake.
A Minion Becomes The Flash!
My youngest loves the Flash and loves Minions so we decided to combine the two. This is the first time I've attempted a structured cake outside of a class - it was much trickier than I anticipated and was scary to transport but it got to the party in one piece. Phew!
White And Pearl Wedding Cake With Ruffled Flowers
Scrunch/ruffle flowers made from fondant adorn two tiers of this cake. Each one was dusted with pearl lustre. The other two tiers were painted with pearl lustre and had the damask pattern applied with royal icing. A wafer paper peony adorns the top. LOVE this cake!
Coral And Mint Wafer Paper Wedding Cake With Silver Leaf
Printed wafer paper in coral and mint patterns tied this cake in with the happy couple's wedding decorations. This is the first time I've worked with silver leaf and I love the impact it has on the cake.
Black And Silver Wedding Cake
I love this cake! It is based on a Sweet Art design the bride found. The flowers are wafer paper peonies and there are edible silver cachous on the bottom tier. It was fantastic to make a wedding cake a little bit different from the norm.
Elsa Inspired Dress Cake
Here is my Elsa inspired take on the fashion doll tutorial by Ipoh Bakery. The dress was chocolate mud cake and there were little blue lights behind the isomalt ice shards. This was for a little girl's fifth birthday and she loved it.
Half And Half White And Red Wedding Cake
The bride and groom wanted something fun and bright for their special day and this is what we came up with. The white side was painted with pearl lustre so it sparkled in the light. The stripes on the red side were silver to match the bling ribbon. The topper was designed in conjunction with the couple. Love this cake, it was certainly a fun one to make!
High Tea Topsy Turvy Cake
Where I live we don't often get the chance to do cake decorating classes. Handi Mulyana from Handi's Cakes made the trek down to Tasmania and I was lucky enough to spend six days with him and learned so many new things! This cake was my favourite, his high tea topsy turvy. I chose to stick to a mostly pink colour palette and I love the end result.
Lego Themed Wedding Cake
This cake was inspired by a Sharon Wee design the bride fell in love with. The top three tiers were painted with pearl lustre. Tier two had the swag stencil applied with royal icing and the exposed lego bricks were made with fondant. Tier three had Sugarveil lace wrapped around it. Tier four had scrunch flowers applied which were made from hundreds of fondant circles, each one was dusted with pearl icing. The bride and groom lego figurines were based on the happy couple.
Large Ruffled Wedding Cake
This cake was inspired by the Steel Penny Cakes tutorial - grab it if you haven't, it's super easy to follow! There are four tiers of cake under all of those ruffles - citrus mud, caramel mud, chocolate mud and white chocolate and raspberry mud. The ruffles are made from fondant and the edge of each one was painted with pink lustre dust. The flowers were pink and white to match the cake. I love this cake!
White On White Wedding Cake
Here's my new favourite wedding cake! The top two tiers were painted with pearl lustre. The damask pattern on the second tier was done with white royal icing so it stood out against the pearl finish. The bottom tier was covered with hundreds of scrunch flowers. I used a six petal cutter and each flower was dusted individually before it was applied to the cake so they shimmered in the light. The happy couple chose red velvet, marble mud and Jaffa mud for their flavours.
Vintage Pearl Wedding Cake
I love this cake! The bride's brief was vintage, pearls, ruffles and roses. The top tier and the pearls were painted with pearl lustre. The roses were Cotton and Crumbs inspired.
Wedding Cake Based On The Dress!
This wedding cake was four tiers of marble mud cake goodness. The design was based on the bride's dress. The top tier was lace so I used a lace mould. The sash was represented by ribbon and a brooch. The ruffle skirt was represented by fondant ruffle roses on the bottom two tiers. The cake was airbrushed with pearl shimmer.
Black, White And Red Wedding Cake
The bride came up with design and took elements from several different cakes she liked. The topper is acrylic and the bow was made from fondant - colouring the fondant like that was harder than I thought! I hand painted the couple's initials so they're a little wobbly...
Mocha Scruch Flower Engagement Cake
The cake was inspired by a Blissfully Sweet design. Ivory fondant was used as the base colour and the scrunch flowers were shades of mocha. The balls were made using a pearl mould. It's hard to tell from this photo but the bottom tier was extended so we could add more of those gorgeous scrunch flowers.
Ruffle Rose Wedding Cake
This was my first attempt at a ruffle rose cake and I think I'm in love! The cakes were 6", 8", 10" and an extended height 12" so it was massive - I bumped up the height of the 12" so I could add more ruffles. We left the middle two tiers white with just a little silver bling to fit the reception colour scheme - the dusty pink matched the bridesmaids' dresses. I've heard the cake was enjoyed which is awesome!
Elephant Baby Shower Cake
The design of this cake is entirely based on the event invitation. The chevron and polka dot patterns were made with edible images which was a lot harder than I thought! Especially wrapping the chevron pattern around the bottom tier and getting it to match. The elephant was made from fondant.
Happy 8th birthday to Bellah and Hayley! One of these little cuties was dark chocolate and raspberry mud cake and the other was white chocolate and raspberry mud. The fur was made from fondant and was just a little time consuming but the finished result was definitely worth it.
