Archery Cake & Cookies

Hi there,

Last week I made this cake for an archery-themed party. The birthday girl wanted a target, a bow and an arrow on top of a green cake, as well as some cookies to match the theme. I really hope she enjoyed it!!

The cake was iced and piped with green buttercream and the archery decorations were made out of fondant.

Some cookies were decorated with sugarpaste (targets) and some others were hand piped with royal icing (bows and arrows).

See you soon!

Pirate Cake

Hi there,

I really loved making this pirate cake for Meg!! Doesn’t it look summery and refreshing? lol.

A ship is sailing on the quiet and blue sea, whilst a pirate is smiling between two swords.  The treasure is close!!

I think this design would be a great choice for a kids’ party.

This cake was iced and piped with royal blue buttercream and the pirate decorations were made out of sugarpaste. The coins on the sides are chocolate ones!

Have a nice and summery weekend!

Batgirl & Spiderman Cupcakes

Hi there,

I never had heard about Batgirl before making these cupcakes -must be I’m getting old!!-, so I was quite curious and excited when I was asked to make them. After some research, I decided to make a cute and girly style (they had to be pretty for Spiderman, lol!!).

Hearthstone Cake

Hi there, 

This is the novelty cake I prepared for Ewa, my friend’s wife. She loves playing Hearthstone game (specially against him, haha) and since he wanted to surprise her, nothing better than a cake looking like the same game board to celebrate her birthday!

I decorated everything from scratch, including the hand made figurines. Everything was edible!

This game has several game boards depending on the four figures on the corners and we decided to go ahead with the one containing buildings. 

I misunderstood the figurine on top of the castle (it was unclear in the picture I used) and I made a kind of weapon. Actually, according to my boyfriend, it should be an hippogriff!! hahaha. 

I attach some step-by-step pictures of the decorating process. I had a lot of fun making it! 

If you still don’t trust me, here’s the proof it was a real cake, haha!!…

Cut of the Cake. Yummy chocolate!!!

Making this cake was a big challenge for me and I’m so glad I did it!

Have a nice weekend,

Ballerina Tutu Cupcakes (with Wings!)

Hi there,

One of the things I like the most when working with fondant is frilling!! I love frilling & I love frills :-)

So when I was asked to make these colourful ballerina tutu cupcakes for a 6 year-old girl I felt very excited! hehe.

Because of the wings, they actually look like pretty fairy dresses, don’t they?

Due to the upper shape of the tutus (I was just trying to give a 3D effect), it could be a great idea to fill them with some smarties to give an extra surprise!

This is one of the boxes with the cupcakes inside. I enjoyed a lot making them!

I hope you liked them!

Tinkerbell Cake 2

Hi there,

This is the second Tinkerbell cake I’ve made recently. I can confirm that Tinkerbell is being one of the superstars in the kids’ parties! Not to mention Frozen or Minions too, hehe!

My previous Tinkerbell cake was covered in fondant, whilst this one was iced and piped with buttercream. Both of them had tiny cupcakes matching the main cake colours.

The girl’s mum wanted a cake in pastel tones, specially a nice green one. She also liked the idea of placing a fondant heart on top of it.

 


Here’s a picture of both Tinkerbell cakes for you to compare and choose which one you’d like the most! Oh my, I couldn’t choose!

Buttercream Tinkerbell Cake. Pastel Colours.

Fondant Tinkerbell Cake. Pink & Purple Colours.

Have a nice week!
