So, long time no post because I've been caking like a maniac!!! lol Anyways thought I'd touch base and showcase some of the things I've been up to :)
80's Themed Basketball cake
When I was asked to make this 80s themed basketball cake, I must admit I had to scratch my head at what that actually meant. Turns out she was having a fancy dress party for her husband and everyone was going in cool retro basketball outfits with afros!! How Funky!! Hope this cake fit right in, with all the complmentary colours to make it bold and stand out. The cake was strawberry and vanilla and the top was chocolate with chocolate ganache.
I have to say I loveeee making baby shower, baby themed cakes.. think the cuteness is just so totally my style :D I was asked to make another full month baby cake for the cute baby Jonathan. His mum wanted his cute little Nike shoes as the topper so with 4 photos of each side of the shoes to go by. I did my best to replicate them in edible form :) I love the little toot toot cars soo cute!!
Wedding Cake Tasting
I had my very first wedding cake tasting last month!! I was so nervous! I made a total of 4 cakes with some petit fours too. The flavours I showcased included:
- Lemon and Coconut
- Hazelnut and Chocolate
- Red Velvet
- Double Choc
FujiFilm Finepix X100 Cake
This was such a fun cake to make!!! When my clients sent me the link of this Fujifilm camera as inspiration I thought to myself. "I just have to replicate that!!" so lo and behold here is what I came up with :)
The Final product...
I didn't have enough time to take proper pics of this cake so we just took some quick ones outside Soho before the birthday boy came out the club to pick it up lol
Croquembouche and Cupcake Mania
Once again, I do apologise for the retarded photo quality! :( It was taken with the iphone... who decided it wanted to be temperamental and have a black screen when taking pics (Dont ask why - coz I got no idea!)
These lovely sweets were made for an engagement party. There was a croquembouche and a cupcake tower filled with lovely vanilla and red velvet cupcakes :)
