Dog Cupcakes

Hi there!

My friend Isabel is a passionate dog walker. Like me, she was a cake decorator, but she decided to change cakes, flour and sugar for the love,  joy and loyalty that dogs bring. Few weeks ago she asked me to make some “leaving” cupcakes to say goodbye to some of the owners. Personally I am a big animal lover and I was so excited to make them. But I was even more excited to see these pictures that the dogs’ owners sent her when they received their gift! Omg, how adorable are they?? So cuuuuuute! Looooove!

Pomerian

Dachshund

Yorkshire and poodle mix

What’s your favourite one? Are you in love with any particular dog breed? I love all these cuties! But look at the Pomerian’s eyes… Could they be more  bright and playful? Aww!!

One of the dogs tried to eat itself… Really! lol. It’s impossible to cope with such a dose of cuteness!!

Have a lovely and doggie weekend!

Cheshire Cat Cake (Alice in Wonderland)

Hi there,

Last weekend was Maya’s 6th birthday. She had a Mad Hatter party theme (Alice in Wonderland). This is the cake I made to make her day even more special. I heard it was nice and yummy! Yay!

It was a 10 inch buttercream coated cake with little handmade fondant decorations all around.

Hope you like it and you get some inspiration.

Have a nice week!

Sprinkle Cake

Hi there,

This is a three tier sprinkle cake I made for Liberty’s birthday. I thoroughly enjoyed making it!

Wasn’t sure about which wallpaper choose to take the pictures and I used both :- ) Which one do you like the most?

I used three round 8″-6″-4″ cakes (between 4″-5″ tall), and despite there were loads of sprinkles, I just used around 270 grams to cover the three of them! I had bought 2 kilos of nonpareils because I wasn’t sure about the amount I would be using, lol. I still have enough to make more similar cakes and also topping some cupcakes! Anyway, it’s always better to work with more sprinkles than you need and then remove and keep the excess.

Under the sprinkles, I just used buttercream. A firm and cold crumb coat to get sharp edges and then a final thin coat to stick the sprinkles to the cake.

Hope these tips help!

Have a nice, sweet and colourful week!

Magic Garden Cupcakes

Hi there,

Last week I was so lucky to contribute with these mini cupcakes in a kids’ party set up by the professional Mystical Fairies team. They organize amazing children’s parties and performances with a lot of interesting themes for kids. This time, it was a Ben & the Little Kingdom-themed party and they wanted to form a little garden with mini cupcakes.

I appreciate that Mystical Fairies sent me these beautiful pictures to be able to share them with all of you.

Have a nice weekend,

Alice in Wonderland Cake & Cookies

Hi there,

Last week I made this two tier fondant cake for little 5-year-old Layla. Her birthday’s party was Alice in Wonderland – themed and she wanted a big cake and some cookies to match it. I tried to do my best to make her day very very special.

Inside this pale green cake (colour which I find very beautiful and girly), there was a couple of moist chocolate cakes covered in delicious ganache and filled with yummy vanilla buttercream.

These are some of the Alice in Wonderland cookies I also made:

Ready to go!

Hope you liked them!

Have a wonderful week,

Rainbow Unicorn Cake

Hi there,

Few days ago I made this colourful rainbow unicorn cake for little Sofia. Despite she’s very young she was determined to have a unicorn birthday cake full of colours everywhere.

I made a buttercream petal effect on the sides of the cake. This technique is specially time-consuming when using several colours although really effective!

Both the unicorn and the rainbow, as well as the little clouds, were hand modelled out of fondant.

I made other treats to sweeten Sofia’s birthday party, like some iced cookies and these delicious mini rainbow cupcakes.

Have a nice and colourful week :-D

Advent Calendar Made Of Mini Cupcakes

Hi there,

Christmas is getting close! I should have done this calendar before in order to start counting from the 1st of December, but better late than never! The good thing is that today I’ll be able to eat 14 mini cupcakes in a row :D lol.

Jocking aside, these little treats don’t last so many days, so it’s better to eat them just after making them, sharing them with your family and friends.

Actually my friend Arnau gave me this lovely idea last year and I’ve finally made it real!! :) I dedicate it to him!

Have a nice Christmasy week!
