Colorful frills rainbow cake

Frills..they look real pretty n luckily not that hard to master the technique 😉 u don’t really need a steady hand for this..just some buttercream with the right consistency and nice colors 🙂

After crumbcoating the cake, I started “frilling” around the bottom

image

Working up and around the cake

image

Until I’ve reached the top..

image

Fill the tip with frills working from the edge towards the centre and top it off with a cute red heart 😉

pink wedding cake

made this pink n cream coloured cake for my cousin’s wedding..the bottom tier was  pink ombre cake – 4 layers on cake in pink hues..darkest on the bottom and gradually lighter towards the top..but I just coated it with pink buttercream and piped some chantially lace in very light cream buttercream

image

the top tier was my original rainbow cake – all 6 layers of em..and coated with light cream buttercream and piped some chantially lace in the same colour as well..some pink border piped using an open star tip an of course buttercream roses in dark pink, light pink n cream to top the cake 😉

image

just before going to set the cake at the wedding, I added two roses on the bottom tier

image

and here is the cake fully assembled

and here it is with the wedding set on stage (pelamin)

colors = colours

gee..it’s been a while since my last entry..have been extremely busy baking..phew! can’t wait for our vacation next week..yay!

today i’d like to talk on colours 🙂 it is really important to spare some time in cake decorating (or any designing jobs for the matter) to carefully choose/mix colours..I just love mixing colours to make my own “customised” colour..it will not only be unique but very pretty as well 😉

image

customised purple for the mini-doll cake 😉

image

magenta like colour for cupcakes 😉

customising the colours to match barbie’s dress 😉

Rainbow Barbie

Barbie=PINK! 😀
Got a request for a Barbie themed rainbow cake from Husna of UIAM Kuantan..and surely the cake was pink!

It was just a simple large rainbow cake topped with edible image of barbie and decorated with some pink buttercream and dragees and confetti 😉

The Ben10 number 1 cake

Here’s the picture of the number 1 shaped ben10 cake I posted earlier 😉

Thank u nurul from kuantan for ordering with us..and a bigger thanks for sharing the momentous pic with us 😉

Notice how the “photo flags” are used on this cake ;

Ben10 is number 1

Rainbow cake is getting “numbered” again 😉 This time it is the number “1”..Nurul from kuantan requested the cake for her nephew’s first birthday 🙂

As usual I baked a Square rainbow cake and layered them to start with..and cut into pieces like these

image

Arrange them into the number 1 (cut off a bit to make it perfectly number 1 and glued the pieces together with icing)

image

image

Covered the cake with icing..and now I love piping the sides of a rainbow cake with stripes of colors 😉

image

image

Nurul requested a Ben10 themed cake..and she wanted to put the birthday boy s picture on the cake..but since it was a very last minute order, I didn’t have time to prepare the edible image for the cake..so I gave her an alternative..photo flags to stick on the cake

image

Hope Nurul and her family is happy with the cake 😀 and I do hope she would share her pic of the cake with me..if she does I”ll share em with u 😉

63

Making a numbered cake is always fun..this time I’m doing a double digit cake – 63..it was a challenge for me as I’m used to make cheerful and cute single digit cakes for kids 😉

This 63 numbered cake is for a mom as a special gift from her kids..Kak Ida from bukit sekilau, Kuantan and her siblings wanted a number 63 cake for their mom..I feel happy to make the cake because I was given the freedom to use my creativity on this cake (every baker appreciates this i think..hehee)

At first I still had no idea on how to decorate the cake..even after the cake was baked I was still not inspired..hehe..but I kept on going..carved the cake into “63” (only after the cake was 100% done I realized a spot I forgot to carve on the number 3)

image

As I was deciding the color for the cake..the design of the just came to me..yay! The theme was pink and I suddenly was in the mood for roses 😉

image

image

And I was in the mood for chocolates..so here’s the cake fully decorated with buttercream roses and heart shaped chocolates all over..I hope it’s not too much..LoL

image

This was my favourite piece on this cake

image

I do hope kak Ida n her family especially her mom is happy with this cake 🙂

Send-a-cake: mini doll cake

I just love send-a-cake requests! Today I sent off this cute mini doll cake as a surprise for the birthday girl from someone special who couldn’t be with her on her special day..I love making people happy and making relationships stronger 😉

image

image

I purposely make the writing in a slightly darker shade to make it subtle rather than contrasting colors as I want eyes to focus on the doll cake, yet make it a personalised cake especially for the birthday girl..it is special but not too loud..I think..LOL

Halloween Cake

Got a request to make a Halloween themed cake, and I was all up for it 😉 when u think of Halloween, what comes to your mind? I pictured black cats, spiders n their creepy webs,  witches, ghosts, graveyards, and of course those carved pumpkins 😀

The color theme was black and orange (typically Halloween rite ;p) I first covered the cake with orange buttercream..then piped black and darker orange stripes around the cake

image

Draw a spiderweb and a spider in it (piped all “black things” on the cake using ganache”..that is one tasty spider!)

image

Another spider
