Creating and sculpting 3D cakes are so much fun, and a great adventure. From figuring out how to shape,, what to bake and how many to bake.
Got this job from our local baker’s group. I was just started baking again and this 3D cat seems like a good challenge to start off with.
Planned on baking some circles and some retangular cake. I end up baking a 12×12 inch sheet cake, and started stacking them together and later carving them. Cake carving has always been my favourite, it was such a pleasure.
The customer requested the cat to look like her daughter’s favourite plushie toy cat. I guess I nailed it? A chubbier version of the plush cat 😆
I’m just happy with how it turned out to be, and when a client is happy, it’s all worth it 🥰
hi there!!! how I missed blogging here! It has been really looooong since I last posted. I am still baking and decorating, the usual stuff, nothing to fancy yet not too shabby..heheh..been working on a few projects here n there..the kids are growing, 2 toddlers in the house ~ means hand are full, schedules are tight, lots of stuff to do and learn 😉
here’s a LEGO inspired cake complete with a lego man stick. this is the usual rainbow cake, with all 6 colourful layers in it 😉
have u guys watched the LEGO Movie? we have and I just loved it! “everything is awesome!” <– can’t get this tune out of my head for weeks…LOL
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 😉
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
I’ve always wanted to make a Barbie doll cake..but I don’t know who to make it for..huhu..thanks to my regular customer rafidah, I get a chance to make this beautiful cake. To me, the idea of a doll cake is not just the cake shaped like a doll, but giving the doll as a gift to the celebrated birthday girl as well ~ double joy! 😀
Rafidah requested the cake to be decorated pink and purple..I choose a Barbie doll with her dress readily “printed” on her body, so that I won’t have to put buttercream on her body..that would be messy and kind a ruin the beautiful doll..hehe..I had fun mixing the colors as I tried to match the colors on the doll itself..the colors turned out to be very unique and pretty 😉 talk about customized colors!
Here’s the Barbie doll cake fully decorated. Since Barbie has very long legs, I had to put not 4, but 5 layers of cake to hold her! I didn’t use the special Barbie “skirt” pan, just your regular round cake pan in different sizes and a small bundt pan for the top of the skirt and a bit of cake carving 😉
The Barbie doll cake after some personalization, made specially for the birthday girl Amina 😉
The cake definitely couldn’t fit ANY cake box! LOL 😀
So, this is how we impovise..heee 😉
Thank you so much rafidah. Your order really made my day 😀
