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 England Edition Series refers to Cake Projects I made while in England without my usual Cake supplies.

Valentine's Day mini Heart Cakes:

Valentine’s Day mini Heart Cakes.

So this is a very belated Valentine's Day post! 

For Valentine's this year I made some chocolate sponge and used a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut out little hearts. I then filled two hearts with whipped cream, added some melted milk chocolate on top as well as some more whipped cream and                                                                             finished it off with some red candy melts.

3D Suitcase Cake with Travel Notebook.

3D Suitcase Cake with Travel Notebook.

Yesterday I was invited to a Going-Away party by two very dear friends of mine and as always I promised them to make a cake to honour the occasion.

I was not bound to follow any specific instructions or wishes so I came up with my own design. I thought, since they're going to be travelling a lot, a suitcase would be the way to go. I also added a 'Traveling Notebook' where all the guests could write their name on with edible food markers.


The cake itself was 12" x 9" inches of Red Velvet cake with chocolate-chip Cookie Dough filling.

Commission: Three tiered Film/TV Cake

Three tiered Film/TV Cake.

Yesterday was basically my prom night so of course I had to bake a cake to celebrate the occasion.

 

Our motto was ABI at Prime Time (2015) and we had a white TV as a logo on our T-shirts and stuff...

The cake's theme is based on this motto, even though it is a bit more cinema than television...

The cake itself was a 6" vanilla sponge filled with whipped cream, a 10" red velvet cake filled with cookie dough and a 14" chocolate cake filled                                                                   with chocolate ganache.


(It was also 40°C/104°F  yesterday which still is not a great time to bake and transport a three tiered cake!)

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.

Edible Christmas Presents:

Secret Santa Snowman.

Since today was the last day of school before Christmas we did another Secret Santa thing in my history class.

I actually used the present I got from the last Secret Santa to make this Snowman.

I spend the whole day baking red velvet cupcakes, making caramel and white chocolate ganache, because I needed presents for a few friends I won't see in the holidays (read more), so I just used some of the batter for the snowman and painted him with some luster dust after                                                                covering him with fondant...

I even made these boxes in which five red velvet cupcakes with white chocolate ganache and four red velvet cupcakes with caramel filling were placed...

Snow Globe Cake:

Snow Globe Cake.

I recently bought a baking pan for small Spheres and since it is December I thought a Snow Globe would fit the season...

 

The cake is Chocolate Cake filled with white chocolate and dark chocolate ganache...

 

I used the airbrush to apply the blue frost...

 

The Silver Spray really enhanced this look!

Secret Santa Present:

Small Christmas present out of cake.

We all decided to do Secret Santa this year in my English Class, but I had no idea what to get the person whose name I had drawn, so I fell back on the one thing I can do - trying to bake something...

 

This present is vanilla cake covered in fondant and painted with all kinds of luster dust. The presents in the front are also made out of fondant...

 

The cake is about 4", I had to bake a 6" one and then cut out a circle in the middle...

Beach on a Cake:

Cake showing a scene on a beach.

Shortly before school was over our class had a little summer celebration. Everyone wanted to get a pool and swim, but I was a bit sceptic if our teacher would be able to get one set up (though we did have small blow-up ones we filled with ice to cool our drinks). So I tried to create a cake which would fill this need, at least in theory...

 

The cake itself is vanilla sponge cake coloured in a light blue to match the pool theme and filled with whipped cream. The decorations are made out of fondant and placed on brown sugar sand and the deep blue piping gel sea.
