How beautiful and delicate is this cake style? It feels like being in a fairy woodland, somehow magic… Sometimes the simplest and most natural looking things are the most special! That semi-naked effect of the chocolate cake going through the thin and random layers of buttercream… Those little piped leaves… Nur made a wonderful choice for her daughter’s first birthday.
The deers were made out of fondant, trying to give them an appearance of wooden figures (Ostheimer and Holztiger make amazing wooden animals!). The flavour of the cake was chocolate and rum -girl’s dad favourite flavour -. I’m personally not a fan of rum, but honestly that combination worked so well and even I enjoyed it!
Unicorns are very popular recently and I realised about this tendency due to the important increase in cake orders with this topic. Last week I made this playful unicorn cake for a little 6 year old girl. I heard she was so happy with it so am I!
Everything was made out of sugarpaste so it was completely edible if desired. The unicorn couldn’t wait and it started to lick the rainbow, lol.
Ben and Little Kingdom is a children’s television series very popular amongst kids. Ben, one of the main characters, is a young and friendly elf. The most remarkable features in this character are his big head, angular nose, pointed ears and his blue hat with an oak leaf sticking out.
Joshua and Edward, two adorable little siblings, were celebrating their birthday together. The party’s theme was Ben and Little Kingdom, and I was so glad to contribute with this colourful fondant cake to make their day even happier!
Ben is sitting on a ladybird called Gaston. We also can see the Little Castle. In front of him, there’s a delicious picnic. Everything was made out of sugarpaste. I just love modelling!
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.
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.
