Kat's Birthday Cake

Kat's birthday was earlier this month but I did not have time to make her a cake, so I finally has a chance to do it! Her favorite flowers are bright happy Gerber daisies, so I made some daisies and did some piping work. The cake is a french vanilla with raspberry filling, covered in fondant with fondant flowers. This cake is a double layer 6 inch round cake. I did all the piping with piping gel, but I'm wondering if piping with butter cream would have been better? Well, trial and error, I guess it's also personal preference. I haven't decided which I prefer, so I'll keep experimenting!

Steve's Birthday Cake

Beer mug or frothy cafe drink? I was trying to go for a beer mug for my cousin's birthday cake, it's a really simple french vanilla with raspberry filling cake, covered with chocolate fondant and butter cream on top. This is a mini 3.5 in. round cake. It's only a 2 layer cake, although I made 3 layers, I thought 2 might have been enough, but with time, my tall mug became short, probably because the filling probably flattened with time. Anyways, every cake is a continuous learning process. Beer mug, frothy coffee, or hot cocoa, bottoms up!

Kristin's Birthday Cake

It's my good friend Kristin's Bday and what better gift than love and time. I made her 1/4 sheet red velvet cake, her favorite, and filled it with cream cheese frosting. Her favorite color is pink so I made this girly present cake for her. The cake is covered in chocolate fondant, the leaves are made out of chocolate fondant, and everything else is made of gumpaste. I also brushed some gold dust on the flowers and petals for some extra shimmer to it. There's nothing better than spending a lot of time on something to give to a friend, especially when it tastes good too =). Happy Birthday Kristin!

New Years 2010

Happy New Years!! What better way to start the new year than to ring it in with happy vibrant sunflower cupcakes with cute little lady bugs for detail! These are mint chocolate cupcakes with basic butter cream. I also experimented with some poured fondant on a few cupcakes (the last image). I used chocolate poured fondant for the top of the cupcake, and basic butter cream for the sunflowers, leaves, and vines.

All I did for the poured fondant was heat up some fondant in the microwave for a few seconds, added some water and mixed it to a runny texture, and dipped the cupcakes in then to get a nice smooth and even texture on top. It was a little tricky trying to get the right consistency but with practice it will become easier. Happy New Year everyone!
