It was a simple milk chocolate cake with cherry filling and chocolate ganache frosting.

Tips:

Cupcakes were decorated with colourful icing using the mehendi cones. So that I can use separate cones for different colours thus making the process of icing faster.

Butterfly

A round cake was cut and placed to get the shape of a butterfly and then decorated with icing. This is the first cake I decorated by myself.

Hungry Caterpillar Cake

by Helen
(Cayce, SC)


This is for my two grandsons' birthday party. They were 2 and 3 and had a double party. I used a 6 in. wilton pan for the head and made one layer, letting it rise up to round off the face. I cut it on each side edge to get the proper shape. I used chocolate sprinkles for the hair along the top row of cupcakes and cut slices of peep marshmallows for the eyes. I put a green jelly bean in each eye. I purchased a 1 foot square of grass from Hobby Lobby and cut it into thirds to place along the bottom of the catepillar. There are 36 buttercream frosted cupcakes with piped leaves on them. There is a black jellybean nose. I cut out paper antannae from lavendar stationary and colored them blue and black. It was quite a hit with the kids and parents as well.

The butterflies were made with a mix on gumpaste and fondant. I dried them on a cardboard "W" stand so they could look like they were flying and then painted them with food coloring. They were then attached with floral wire and inserted into the cake.

Ladybird children's cake

by Sugarpaste Dreams
(Dorset, UK)


It was for a children's birthday party so knew it needed to be bright and eye-catching. It is made out of red velvet with chocolate ganache filling, a combination that I know tastes amazing and not the usual jam and buttercream. I like to experiment with flavours and contemplated using a lemon filling but I know that chocolate was the safer option for children.

The head is also made out of sponge meaning that the cake could serve up to 20 people; I always make sure that my customers get the most portions they can out of a cake and always make everything edible and would never put plastic figures on a cake as I believe they aren't personal or bespoke.

I was very pleased with the outcome and think this is one cute ladybird that was friendly and hopefully you'll agree very bold.

Butterflies Birthday Cake

Butterflies Birthday Cake

Butterflies Birthday Cake

Hard icing is the best to work with.


Ingredients for decorating:

Lots of different pastel colored balls
Licorice strips - not ropes
Any sparkly edible decorations
Tweezers and earbuds


The only way to get the balls to stick to the icing is to wet the spot with an earbud, if you wet the ball all the color comes off. There is also edible fairy dust available, you use that to dust the entire butterfly after you have finished the decorating. I also put colored vermicelli in the batter when I bake the cake. The kids love it, as it adds a bit of fun.

Piggy Cake

Piggy Cake

Piggy Cake

My friend from New York was out vising and having some friends over. Knowing food would be needed, I asked what he'd like me to bring. He asked what my specialty was, so I jokingly responded "roast pig". To my surprise, he said "that sounds great! Let me know if you need help digging the pit for the roasting." I couldn't show up at his house with a huge real roasted pig, or empty handed..and somehow I didn't really think he believed me when I said "then that is EXACTLY what you will get", so I decided to surprise him with the next best thing...a piggy cake!



There was no set instructions or ingredients that i could find for a cake like this, so i began to construct the cake on my own...of what my interpretation of what a pig cake should look like. I ended up having to shape the cake by shaving off excess cake and finished it all with fondant. I even used a squiggly pink candle for the tail, which was lit and blown out as is any candle's custom.

Come cake serving time, my friend's eyes were huge as he sliced right into the neck of the poor pig, to reveal delicious Strawberry cake with whipped cream and fresh sliced strawberries center. It was a hit!

Noah's Ark Cake and Cupcakes

Noah's Ark Cake and Cupcakes

Noah's Ark Cake and Cupcakes

This 3-D Noah's Ark was done for a baby shower. I used my small oval pans and small loaf pan for the basic ark shape and iced it in fudge buttercream. The roof is made out of chocolate buttercream covered in graham crackers. The Noah's Ark is stacked on top of a single layer round which is iced in blue buttercream to look like water, and has blue and white marbled "waves" border at the bottom. The animals, though, are the fun part of this cake! All different kinds; hippos, elephants, snakes, birds, etc. are aboard this edible ship.

We needed extra servings for the baby shower, to supplement the cake, I did carrot cake cupcakes iced in cream cheese icing. Then I piped a little matching animal head on top, to go with the Noah's Ark animals!

Ladybugs Cakes

I made these cakes for my daughter's 1st birthday. Her birthday is in May so I wanted to do a "spring" theme. So I decided to go with lady bugs. It turned out really cute. I used Pyrex bowls to make the bugs and I used fondant to cover the cake board to like they were crawling in grass. I also made some little flowers out of fondant and gum paste to add a little "garden" like feel.

Penguin Cake

My friend's son was very interested in penguins, so that's where this cake came from! I did it for his birthday. It was a sculpted cake made out of several round layers stacked together and shaped to look like penguin. I used a cupcake for the head. I covered the cake in black fondant and used white to make the belly and eyes. The orange beak and feel are egg shaped cakes iced in buttercream. It's stacked on top of a single layer round for added servings and that is decorated with rainbow confetti and the birthday inscription!

Dragon Castle Cake

Dragon Castle Cake

This is one of the most challenging cakes I've undertaken. It is an 8" round stacked with half a 7" round on top, to create a mountain look. The short and tall towers are cake covered in fondant, and the thin towers on the edges are gum paste/fondant. The dragon is gum paste painted with red and gold dust.
