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.
Last weekend I decided to give IT clown a go. Yes, that creepy clown from IT film. Halloween is around the corner and this year I wanted to model something cool and someway challenging! To make his face I used modelling paste, which is a smooth and elastic sugar paste to specifically model. I tried Saracino brand and it was so awesome to work with. For the body and clothes I used fondant + CMC.
I just love loooooove making novelty cakes for children. Anything childish or colourful makes my day! Also, I learn many things about TV shows and films that I had no idea they existed! Like this Jake and the Neverland Pirates. I didn’t know who he was until I had to make his first cake!
Beauty and the Beast was one of my favourite Disney’s films when I was a kid. Since then, I’ve watched it countless times… And of course, I recently went to watch the new cinema version, which I really really loved!! Anyway, my cake is based on the cartoon movie from the 90′s.
Belle’s details (dress and roses) are fully made from buttercream and the Beast’s ones (horns and bow), out of fondant -with cmc-. There are several ways to pipe buttercream ruffles but I decided to use a leaf nozzle, piping from bottom to top. The roses are simple rosettes piped with a large open star tip.
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!
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!!
The tittle of this post may sound a little weird. But this is what happened: I received a request about a cake showing three themes at the same time. The birthday boy loved football, swimming and he’d just got a new Iphone as a present. So it had to contain the three things! Difficult combination, I know, but I had so much fun designing it!
Now that I look at the cake again, I would have changed small things, like making more detailed footballs and a more straight number one (the one on the right looks a bit wobbly, lol).
