Gothic Engagement Cake

20131123-184212.jpg

My sisters friends got engaged and they are very Gothic people so she wanted to give them a Gothic engagement cake as a present. I drew inspiration from a cake I found on cakecentral.com which was a four tier wedding cake with hexagonal and round alternating tiers. Each tier had a specific design and I tried to incorporate two of those tiers being the steeples and the fence.

I made the tree, which I was quite chuffed with and I ordered the vampire couple for the top. Inside was plain chocolate with chocolate buttercream and I layered the board with. Black fondant and hand painted silver lines to mimic bricks.

Hope the happy couple enjoyed it.

Patrick cake

This cake is so funny. I had so much fun doing this cake – i really enjoy carving cakes and using skills that I have all of a sudden developed. – Don’t ask me to carve anything else!

Patrick himself is such a joy on the Spongebob show and he just makes me laugh so I am glad I got the oppurtunity to make him myself.20130523-155246.jpg

 

This cake was for a colleague’s son’s 5th birthday. They went to adventure golf and played putt putt. He is really the sweetest little boy and has such a big heart. About 18 months ago we went with him and his family to an orphanage to go and hand out Christmas presents and he enjoyed himself so much.

I’m so privileged to make this little boy’s birthday cake.

40th birthday- Zebra, Silver and Union Jack

20130523-153103.jpgThis cake is definately the BEST cake I feel that I have ever done. I have finally figured out how to make the edges of the cake sharp using the fondant smoothers and I spent a lot of time on each tier making sure I got it right.

My favourite tier is definately the silver, it gives such a perfect look and this it would look amazing as a wedding cake. The bottom zebra tier (which i had never done before so i winged it) was chocolate with chocolate icing, the middle silver tier was a dummy and the Union Jack tier was red velvet.

I am still in love with this cake everytime I look at it and I really hope that Lyndsay had a fantastic 40th birthday

McKenzie’s 1st birthday

WARNING! These are the BEST smash cake pics EVER!

I so wish I had actually seen this for myself! We unfortunately had to leave because we had another party. We made the smash cake for McKenzie as her present and I’s so happy she enjoyed it. The party was Winnie the Pooh themed, and I did the cake – which you will see further below in the post and i wanted a different smash cake so I settled on a little beehive. Chris made the little bees and he did an awesome job.
