Last month of January I made this two-tier animal cake for my son’s first birthday and all his NCT friends. The cake was divided into three parts: the top tier, a farm; the front of the bottom tier, a jungle; the back of the bottom tier, an under the sea scene.
I had so much fun designing all the details and modelling the cute characters.
Making a 2D fondant dinosaur against the same cake, hugely helps to support the dinosaur -rather than completely 3D, which structure would be more difficult to make, specially if you’re a begginer-. And then those little cute Minions sitting on the actual cake instead of the real dino (also really helps for the whole thing to be sturdier and more secure!).
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.
This is the last cake I’ve made this year. Hopefully more beautiful and challenging cakes are coming for the next 2016!
Winnie the Pooh is the main character in this yellow cake surrounded by bees. I modelled this topper out of sugarpaste. I was pretty happy with the result. His face is so cute! He seems so happy splashing the honey! Lol.
The rest of the cake was also decorated with fondant, but for the grass (which was hand piped with green buttercream).
This year I made this cake for Halloween. No spooky, no scary… Just adorable, sweet and funny!
I used four layers of cake, being three of them 7 inch and the top one, 6 inch. Once the cakes torted and filled, I placed a dowel in the center to give the cake more stability. Then I carved it to make a rounded shape on the top. Once crumb coated and chilled, I covered the cake with white fondant, making some ruffles on the bottom. Then I added the ghost’s face details and also a handmade Halloween fondant spider on top of its head. Boo!
Hope you like it and get some inspiration to make yours!
