Winnie The Pooh Cake

Hi there,

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).

Wishing you all a very happy and sweet New Year!

Halloween Ghost Cake

Hi there,

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!

Have a nice Halloween night!!

Ballerina Cow Cake

Hi there,

The older I get, the more I love modelling. Working with fondant it’s so wonderful, therapeutic and funny. I can’t stop learning new techniques and styles to make my characters cute and fun.

This time I made a sugar cow wearing a frilly tutu and holding a playful position. She’s just a toddler, but she already wants to become a ballerina!! We all have our own dreams…! lol.

The cake was covered in cow hide effect fondant and decorated with some pink frills at the bottom, all matching the happy cow.

Hope you liked it.

See you soon. Moo!!

Dougal Cake (Magic Roundabout)

Hi there,

Guess who it is…

Not yet? And now?

No?? What about this?

Yeah!! I’m sure you know already. If not, don’t worry… I just knew him few days ago!

Last week was the first time I heard about Dougal, from Magic Roundabout TV show (must be because I didn’t watch it in my country when being a child). Despite he looked not familiar to me at all, I was asked to make a simple birthday cake with his face!! Such a cute and hairy dog!!

I hope you like it!

See you soon,

Thanksgiving Cake. Turkey in a basket!

Hi there,

This is the Thanksgiving cake I’ve made this year for some adorable kids.

I piped a basket weave effect with buttercream and toped the cake with a cute handmade fondant turkey and some autumn leaves. I also added a tiny fondant pumpkin on the board. I really tried to show the Thanksgiving essence with every detail and combination of colours. Hopefully you can feel it!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Zombie Teddy Bear… Happy Halloween!

Hi there,

HAPPY HALLOWEEN everyone!

This year, a part from the Halloween Cookie House I made recently, I’ve dressed up a giant teddy bear cookie (9×7 inch)… After playing with royal icing for a while, I’ve turned it into a zombie! 

To turn this lovely teddy bear into a (cute) zombie, I added small spooky details such as mummy bandages, a spider web, a snake, creepy spiders, a worm coming out through the teddy’s ear, a sewed heart, stitched wounds, a bone as a bow tie…

You can see the teddy’s transformation in the following pictures , lol:

Hope you all enjoy this funny/terrifying night!

Halloween Cookie House

Hi there,

This is the project I’ve made for this year’s Halloween night. It’s a 3D haunted cookie house! Handcrafted and completely edible! Yummmy!! Buuuut… unfortunately we’re not going to eat it, since I want to use it to decorate home for the Halloween’s party. I’m going to add a small lightbulb inside to make it shiny and spooky!

I wanted to build a cookie house since long time ago, and I decided to give it a try this year. I got my inspiration from the fantastic Haniella’s haunted gingerbread house. I added my personal touches and details everywhere to create both a creepy and cute project.

As you can see, there are a couple of witches in a difficult situation. One of them has just fallen inside the chimney. The other one has been literally squashed by the house!! In the entrance, there’s an original “welcome” poster and in the back of the house, there’s a boiling witch cauldron (that’s actually an extra cookie!!).

I prepared my own templates (walls, roof…) to cut the cookie dough and once the pieces baked, I iced them with royal icing. When dried, I assembled them together (royal icing is an excellent glue!!) until I got my desired 3D haunted cookie house.

By the way, this kind of projects are usually called “gingerbread” houses because the cookies to build them contain ginger (it’s a special recipe). Anyway, if you don’t like gingerbread cookies or simply you prefer to use plain sugar ones, no problem, it’ll also work! Just make sure they are thick (5 mm) and sturdy enough.

I hope you like it and you can appreciate all the small details in it!

Have a great Halloween night!
