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.
A couple of months ago I made this two tier wedding cake for my friend’s colleague. She wanted exactly this design. Making the chalkboard effect tier was easier than I expected. I brushed the black fondant with a bit of icing sugar and painted the message with white food colouring powder diluted in clear alcohol.
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.
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:
This is the birthday cake I made for a 4 year-old girl. It was a 10″ chocolate cake, covered in fondant and matching the party theme (fairies) & colour scheme (turquoise and pink, which I think it’s a lovely combination!).
I enjoyed a lot decorating it, specially when modelling the four sugar fairies. I love the ones with red hair sitting on the cake!
I also made some tiny cupcakes matching the cake, as well as some yummy cookies, but unfortunately I don’t have any pictures of those ones.
Last week I made a very interesting birthday cake, which I wanted to share with all of you. The person the cake was for, is a big fan of Pink Floyd’s music and Mario Benedetti’s poetry and she loves the cute Jolly Möh sheep and the white roses. So I designed a cake consisting on a single round tier with a Jolly Möh sheep on top wearing a Pink Floyd t-shirt and listening their music! To go with it, also made some hand piped cookies with Mario Benedetti’s verses! And, if that wasn’t enough, I also prepared a bunch of cupcakes toped with… guess what… Yes! More Pink Floyd and Jolly Möh’s! Overall, a very unusual combination that turned out to be pretty fun! Don’t you think?
I coated an 8″ round vanilla cake with scrumptious dark chocolate ganache and pink rolled fondant, trying to make noticeable sharp edges (I’m a bit obsessed with that!!).
Then, I added the rest of the decorations. I mixed 2D & 3D details to emphasize some of them. I really like the earphones that Jolly Möh is using, as well has her t-shirt, haha! She’s also holding a white rose as a gift for the birthday girl. As you can see for her position, she needs a big hug!! Hug me!!
It was particularly challenging to fit Mario Benedetti’s verses on a single cookie! But with a bit of concentration and steady hand, I could pipe them with white royal icing. My friend Mónica advised me that it would be a good idea to pipe white letters over sky blue cookies. She was right!
By the way, I’ve something on the works for Halloween. Something that I haven’t tried before and been wanted to do for a while now… Spooky!! Stay tuned
