Commission: Red and White Rose Naked Weding Cake

Red and White Rose Naked Wedding Cake.

 

This is the second commissioned Wedding Cake this year.

 

This is a tall, three tired red velvet cake filled with chocolate chip cookie dough.

 

The three tires are 8", 6", and a special size 5" round cake, each with four layers of cake and three layers of filling.

 

The design is again a "naked" cake, which leaves the handmade red and white fondant roses as the decoration.

 

This cake is 15 hours of work, 5 and a half alone for modelling the roses by hand.

 

Making cakes is no cake walk!

Commission: Three-Tired Naked Fruit Wedding Cake

Three-Tired Wedding Cake decorated with Fondant Flowers and Fruit.

This is the first of two Wedding Cakes I was asked to make this month!

 

It's a lovely three-tired cake. The first and third tier are chocolate sponge filled with cookie dough. They are 6" and 10", respectively. The second tier is red velvet filled with cookie dough and 8".

 

The "naked" (without fondant) cake design is currently very popular. Each tier is glazed with semi-sweet chocolate ganache. 

 

The fondant flowers and leaves are based on the flowers and colour scheme used for the invitations. They were all hand made. 

 

The fruits are blueberries, figs, raspberries, red grapes and physalis.

Golden Unicorn 3D Cake:

Golden Unicorn 3D Birthday Cake.

This beautiful golden unicorn is made out of red-velvet cake and filled with chocolate chip cookie dough!

 

 

This was another birthday cake. The horn, ears, hair and flowers that decorate the unicorn are all made from white fondant. Everything gold was hand painted. A good dusting of gold lustre-dust let the unicorn's fondant mane shine.

 

The cake interior consists of 4 layers of 8" (inch) red-velvet cake, filled and dirty iced with chocolate chip cookie dough and everything's covered with white (vegan) fondant.

Make-Up Birthday Cake

This is a beautiful one-tier birthday cake covered in pink fondant and decorated with flowers and makeup (both edible and made out of fondant, of course). 

 

This was a commission and I was so excited to have an excuse to make a make-up cake! I loved making this design.

Mini Black & Gold Cakes-England Edition:

Mini Black & Gold Cakes.

 These are two approximately 10x10 chocolate sponge cakes. Both have three layers of sponge and one is filled with whipped cream and the other with whipped cream and milk chocolate ganache. 
Both were dirty-iced in milk chocolate ganache and then covered with black fondant.
The roses and deco are made out of golden gum paste.
(Also the small Cake Box I bought for them has really tall sides which is super for                                                                                                decorated cakes!)

Happy Easter! Red Velvet Cupcake Nests-England Edition:

Happy Easter Red Velvet Cupcake Nests.

Yesterday was Easter Sunday and to celebrate I thought it would be nice to have an Easter egg hunt - or in this case an Easter nest hunt!

 

I prepared three nests with little chocolates and Red Velvet Cupcakes, which I'd decorated with fondant flowers and fondant Easter eggs.

 

The hunt was over fairly quickly because we had a lot of people over and not many places to hide but I hope it was still fun!

The cake itself is red velvet with cookie dough for the top one and chocolate sponge with black forest filling(whipped cream/ganache/cherries) for the bottom one.

Commission: Frozen Flower Cake

Two Tiered Frozen Flower Cake.

I was recently asked by my best friend to do a frozen-themed cake for her. I had just bought some new flower cutters, so I thought frozen flowers might be a nice idea.

I spend about 6 hours on this cake since flowers take very long when one makes them by hand and also some for the very first time.

I used my airbrush to make a gradual shift from deep navy blue up to light pink on the white fondant before adding the flowers, snow flakes and diamonds...    

     

The cake itself is a 6" and an 8" chocolate sponge with vanilla pudding filling and chocolate ganache icing...

Caramel Buttercream on Chocolate Cupcakes:

Caramel Buttercream on Chocolate Cupcakes.

 

So, I really wanted to try to incorporate my home made caramel into a cupcake frosting.


Since I'm not a big fan of buttercream I wasn't too sure about this one, but I used about half a cup of vegetable shortening and half a cup of butter with about 1 1/2 - 2 cups of homemade                                                                         caramel sauce (sugar and milk                                                                               cooked about an hour and a half).


The consistency was great, I really enjoyed piping on the cupcakes, but taste wise I'm still not sold on buttercream...

This was also my first try at making a buttercream rose...

Flowery Jewellery-Box Cake :

Flowery Jewellery-Box Cake.

Soo today was my last official day of school, so to celebrate I though I should make a really pretty cake. I had yet to use my button-silicone moulds and I thought I could do a sewing kit/jewellery box kind of thing and, to give it a little something, add a bunch of flowers...

It took me quite a while to place all of the flowers and buttons and such which made this a very time consuming cake.

The cake itself is Red Velvet with                                                                         Cookie Dough filling; a favourite of                                                                     mine and most of my classmates.

Commission: Two-Tiered Black Anniversary Cake

Two-Tiered Black Anniversary Cake.

I was asked to make a two-tiered anniversary Cake with a black and red colour scheme and two requested designs pained on the top tier.


For this design I covered the cakeboard in fondant and then airbrushed the edges black. I also used the airbrush on the plate where I drew the designs on, since I was too afraid to paint right onto the cake.


The cake itself is covered in black                                                                        fondant and decorated with red                                                                            fondant roses and rose pedals. The                                                                        6" top tier is red velvet cake filled                                                                        with white chocolae ganache and the                                                                    10" bottom tier is chocolate cake                                                                          filled with cookie dough.

Spring Flower Cake:

Spring Flowers Cake.

Soo, I haven't posted anything for quite a while because I was studying and taking my finals, but I have now returned with a flowery spring cake!

I made a colourful flower bouquet out of edible wafer paper and sat it on top of four layers of 6" red velvet cake. I filled and frosted he cake with cookie dough and then covered it with white fondant.

Since the cake got a lot taller than I anticipated, I had to wrap the fondant around the sides and then cover the top separately. I also tried to paint some grass and leaves, but it didn't look that great so I added some white fondant flowers along the bottom and top edges to try and rescue the                                                                        design a bit.

Airbrushed Cherry Blossom Cake:

Airbrushed Cherry Blossom Cake.

So remember when I said I wasn’t going to bake anything soon... Well turns out I only had to come to the conclusion I did not necessarily /have/ to bake something for me to do just that!

 

I airbrushed this cake in some kind of ombre blue syle with dark brown 'twigs' going up the sides and used some new silicone veiners for the cherry blossoms and the leaves, which I also airbrushed.


The cake itself is chocolate cake filled with chocolate cream, iced in dark chocolate ganache and covered in white fondant.

Doll Dress Cake

Doll Dress Cake blue and pink.

After waiting for quite a while I finally found someone, who wanted a Doll Dress Cake as much as I wanted to make one!  

This design is heavily based on the requested character from the movie 'Princess and the Pauper' Erika. I had to pin her hair up and wrap it to avoid getting frosting in it. 

The cake itself is a half sphere on top of two to three layers of a 6'' chocolate sponge filled and frosted with cookie dough and covered in fondant. 

 

I actually baked another 6'' layer, but after filling the cake I did not need it. The sphere made the dress look way more bulky than it should, but I just wasn't ready to try and carve a dress myself out of a few layers of cake...

Commission: Birthday Cake with white roses and a Bollywood feel to it.

18th birthday cake with a Bollywood theme and white roses.

At first I had no idea how to go about this design, but then I thought this was a great opportunity for my edible Lace and I really liked the idea of the contrast between the red and the white fondant. The cake itself was supposed to be chocolate with ganache filling and cherries, which was something I have never tried to do before, so I hope it turned out alright and of course somewhat edible...

Light Colours and Flowers:

Cake covered in light blue fondant, decorated with flowers and piped vines.

Summer break got a little boring, so I tried to make a cake with very light colours and pink-ish flowers. I admit, the result was not what I was looking for...

I find vintage cakes very beautiful and I wanted to work with light, pastel-like colours, especially the blue of the fondant, and add one or two flowers as eye catchers but it got a bit out of hand...

                                                 The cake is red velvet cake with a                                                                      white chocolate ganache filling.

Gum Paste Pedals:

Cake covered with gum paste pedals in different shades of pink.

The cake is a marble cake decorated with gum paste pedals in three different colours and iced in pink whipped cream.

This was supposed to be a cake for the summer festival my school hosts every year, but due to a heavy rainstorm the festival was cancelled. This was very disappointing, because making so many pedals per hand took me quite a few hours....
