Princess Palace Cake

Hi there,

I recently made this super pink and girly princess palace cake.

It was fully iced and piped with smooth buttercream. The topper (palace) and side decorations (crown and wands) where made out of fondant.

For the piping, I used a small open star nozzle.

To make the standing 2D palace, the sugarpaste was mixed with CMC and rolled pretty thick (around 5 mm). That thickness is important to get a more sturdy topper and to be able to insert a skewer in its center to attach the topper securely into the cake. The skewer was inserted just half the way through the topper and when the central piece was still workable (not dry).

The castle and the turrets were made separately (same thickness) and then sticked together with edible glue when dry.

Just before placing the finished palace, I cut the skewer to make it shorter and insert it nicely inside the cake.

Hope you liked it!

See you soon,

Cupcake Train

Hi there,

This is the train made out of cupcakes I made last week for Hugo’s 3rd birthday. He’s still very young, but he decided by himself he wanted a train to share with his friends at his party. And this was the result: a train carrying loads of smarties!

The engine train was made of sugarpaste and the carriages out of cupcakes. The wheels were mini oreo, by the way!

I was given some fabulous feedback about it! It was funny to hear that the kids ate everything, even the grass and the track!!

And that was not all, there was still a small cake to share!

Have a nice week!
