Birthday Cake for Lucia

21 Aug

Lucia Birthday

This was such a fun cake to decorate after I finally decided HOW I was going to do it. Lucia owns a clothing shop here in town so I knew I was going to do something with dresses, purses etc. When I saw the flower pots and the bright yellow and white striped awning out front of the shop and idea was born. This is it..cake flavor, marble with vanilla butter cream all other design elements I made from fondant.

Hair Salon Cupcakes

   Lemon cupcakes with lemon buttercream.

   I’m glad I only had a dozen of these to make. Making all the little things ( hand molded from fondant) to go on top was a little crazy but I do like how they turned out and my friend loved them too.

A Princess Birthday Cake

22 Mar

Birthday Princess

Princess cakes are so much fun, you can make them as “girly” as you like with lots of frills. This one, a 10″ classic yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream.  I made  bright pink roses in varing shades, wrapped the base of the cake in pink ribbon to match the roses and piped dots on the sides with touches of lavender here and there. The wand was handmade from fondant, the star I cut with a cookie cutter and was brushed with silver dust, the handle rolled and brushed with gold dust, a small silver bow added to the handle. The Tiara was purchased.

  Note: The Mother was so pleased when she saw the cake saying “that’s exactly what I wanted, a very girly cake” and of course that made ME a very happy cake decorator.
