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 πŸ˜‰

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)

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 πŸ˜‰

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

This was my favourite piece on this cake

I do hope kak Ida n her family especially her mom is happy with this cake πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜‰

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

Pink Ombre

I’ve planned on doing ombre cakes for a long time but as usual haven’t got a chance to do so..this time when I got a request from cute Ras on making a mini rainbow cake, I requested to make her a pink ombre cake instead πŸ˜‰ luckily she says yes and here we have my very first pink ombre cakeΒ 

and Ras being a dear, shared the photos of the cut cake with me πŸ˜€ (which I really appreciate a lot! )

initially I planned on naming the cake Rainbow Uno, but the cake is better known as ombre cakes…but guess what, maybe I WILL call this cake Rainbow Uno, as rainbow cakes are what we do best πŸ˜‰

Thinking of some variations of colors for the Rainbow Uno series ~ and this one is “Pretty in Pink”

hannah montana guitar cake

mr amirΒ requestedΒ a hannah montana themed cake for her daughter, and I offered him a hannah montana guitar cake instead! i just love cake carving..have toΒ seizeΒ this opportunity of a cake project! πŸ˜‰

went to the baking supplies shop to find the largest cake board, and all they have was a 13×18 board..ah well, that’ll just have to do πŸ˜€

baked a chocolate cake in a 9×13 pan n cut it out into a guitar silhouette

Barbie doll cake

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! πŸ˜€

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 πŸ˜‰ 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 πŸ˜‰

Thank you so much rafidah. Your order really made my day πŸ˜€
