Football & Iphone & Swimming Cake. 3 in 1 !

Hi there,

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).

Have a nice Sunday!

Aladdin and Jasmine Cake

Hi there,

This is the fondant cake I made last week for Juju’s 5th birthday party. I heard she loved it, which makes me feel so glad! :- D

I think the combination of colours is quite pretty for this theme. Purple, blue and gold.

To decorate this 10 inch cake, I mainly used fondant (to cover the cake and the columns, to model the clouds…), gum paste (to make the plaque, letters and scrolls), and royal icing (to pipe the plaque’s outline and the bottom dots).

Thanks for reading and see you in the next post! I will post some Star Wars Cupcakes soon :- )

Archery Cake & Cookies

Hi there,

Last week I made this cake for an archery-themed party. The birthday girl wanted a target, a bow and an arrow on top of a green cake, as well as some cookies to match the theme. I really hope she enjoyed it!!

The cake was iced and piped with green buttercream and the archery decorations were made out of fondant.

Some cookies were decorated with sugarpaste (targets) and some others were hand piped with royal icing (bows and arrows).

See you soon!

Batgirl & Spiderman Cupcakes

Hi there,

I never had heard about Batgirl before making these cupcakes -must be I’m getting old!!-, so I was quite curious and excited when I was asked to make them. After some research, I decided to make a cute and girly style (they had to be pretty for Spiderman, lol!!).

Glove Cookies. Cross Stitch Embroidery Technique

Hi there,

Still very cold out there…! Brrrr! Fortunately, just one month left to welcome the spring. Meanwhile, don’t forget to wear very warm clothes to avoid unexpected colds!

In some of these cookies I used a kind of cross stitch embroidery technique to make them look more realistic. I first made a royal icing grid and then I filled with dots some of the small squares alternately in order to form several patterns. It’s a laborious task but really rewarding once you see the result!

In the other cookies, I just used the wet on wet technique, marbling the patterns to get a coolest one.

Have a warm week!! ;)

Merry Christmas at Coniq!

Hi there,

These are the Christmas cupcakes I made for Coniq’s customers! As far as I know, they were so happy with them! So am I! :- )

They were mainly purple and white, matching with the Coniq’s icon. As a Christmas decorations, I added fondant Xmas trees, baubles, snowflakes and holly leaves. I also personalised some of them with a hand piped message for their customers. 

Merry & Sweet Christmas to everyone!

Baby Shower Cupcakes. It’s a girl! (es una niña!)

Hi there,

These are the cupcakes I made for a baby shower last week. It’s a girl! The message says “es una niña” instead because the parents were Spanish ;)

I made some fondant baby toppers, which I decorated with fine royal icing details. I loved piping those tiny decorations, as well as frilling the bibs!

They’re quite cute, aren’t they?

I can also make a similar design for baby boys (blue & white), so any baby shower can be sweetened by acup4mycake :D

Have a nice week!

Frozen Themed Party

Hi there,

Last week I made these Frozen themed treats for a four year-old girl, since her birthday party was completely based on the amazing film Frozen!

According to her mother, she was very very excited with her Elsa Cake.

It consisted of a real doll inserted in a dress-shaped cake. I carved a round four tier cake to form the shape.  To get more realistic fabric effects, I covered the cake with fondant. The upper part of the doll was also dressed with sugarpaste. And this was the result! My first doll cake!

I matched the cake with some Frozen themed cookies and tiny cupcakes. To get the snow effect, I sprinkled granulated sugar over wet royal icing.

And here are the cupcakes! I tried to get really cold shades and colours to transmit the essence of Frozen. I also used crystal sugar to make the ice effect.

I hope you liked it. Don’t hesitate to leave a comment if you have any question!

Have a nice week.
