This is the cake I made for the 12th birthday of my twins, Alessandro and Marco. They play in a basketball team, called ASD Master, and they love the Minions, and so I thought to make this cake. The minions players are my sons and their best friends and teammates: Alessandro and Marco with the numbers 62 and 68, Simona with No 20, Gianfranco with No 40 and Daniel with No 33. My twins and their friends loved the cake … and I was so happy!! :)

1963' Fiat 1300 Cake
1963’ FIAT 1300: the first car of “Sicily By Car – Auto Europe”, one of the leader company in the rental car. A cake made to celebrate 50 years of business (1963-2013) of Tommaso Dragotto, entrepreneur from Palermo, founder and president of the company. On the sides of the cake are represented some vintage cars and some European cities (Rome, London Paris) where the “Sicily by car – Auto Europe” has its own rental agencies. On the main side is represented the skyline of the city of Palermo and a FIAT 500 pink colored, same color of the soccer team of the city. I realized the car (my first car …) with gum paste looking at photos on the web and it was a hard job but I am quite pleased with the result! I hope you like it! :)
"profumi Di Sicilia (Scent Of Sicily)" Wedding Cake
In this time in Sicily the lemon trees are covered with white “Zagara” flowers that fill the air with their sweet scent. Inspired by this atmosphere here is “Scents of Sicily,” a painted Wedding Cake decorated with colors and patterns of the traditional Sicilian ceramics and adorned with white Zagara Flowers handmade with Sugar Flower Paste. You can find the tutorial for its realization on “CAKE”, the Blog of “Corriere della Sera” dedicated to Italian Cake Design: http://cake.corriere.it/2013/11/15/profumi-di-sicilia-wedding-cake-dipinta-ispirata-ai-decori-delle-ceramiche-siciliane-tutorial/
Orlando, Paladin Of The Sicilian Puppet Theater "opera Dei Pupi"
Orlando is the most famous character of the Sicilian puppet theater "Opera dei Pupi". The "Opera dei Pupi", typical of the Sicilian storytelling tradition, is a characteristic theatre where the puppets, manoeuvred by the puppeteers on forefronts appositely created, represent the exploits of the greatest medieval Chevaliers, and in particular the action of Charlemagne and his paladins. I have dedicated this work to my father and to my Sicily! I hope you like it! :)
Sugar Zagara Flowers, The Blossoms Of Citrus Trees
The Zagara, the Sicilian flower par excellence, is the fragant blossom of the citrus trees; the word Zagara derives from Arab terms “zahara” (to shine) and “zahr” (flower). I hand made the Zagara flowers with Sugar Flower Paste after observing the blossoming of a small lemon tree in my terrace in Palermo. And I hung up the sugar flowers at my tree for taking some photos …you can see it! :)
Holidays In ....hawaii! :)
