The Tales of Two Baby Showers Pt. 2 - Gloria

Two baby shower cake in a week, haven't done that in ages!  This is a cake for a work baby shower for a colleague.  It was sort of a surprise, but she knew that we are throwing her one.  It would have been near impossible to hide it from her.  
It's a baby Simba cake from Lion King.  The cake topper is made out of fondant and gumpaste.

Don & Su Wedding Cake

Wedding cake theme is Parisian.  I want the cake to have a classical Parisian feel so after an afternoon meeting to brainstorm... Here's the end result

Smiley face - 2 hr cake challenge?

So, 2 hours for a cake (except for cooling time - of course! :)) No problem!
I'm not much of a procrastinator but hey! it happens specially when it is a very
simple cake.  Simple cakes are the hardest! I'm like.. "no sweat!" I can do that tomorrow!!! So, I baked... 45 mins at 2:00am
Left it too cool as I am thawing my butter overnight  (didn't count)
I made the buttercream - 30 mins at 6:00am
Iced cake - 15 mins
fridged to set the buttercream whilst I have breakfast (didn't count)
fondant and decorate - 30 mins
---total time 2 hours---

Justin's Ninjago Cake

 This was a very fun cake to make!  I love replicating.. it's very challenging but very fun!

Justin's name was hand cut with the LEGO print insipirated.  The "NINJAGO" and eyes was also handcut on fondant.

Gold dragon was hand drawn

The Tales of Two Baby Shower Pt. 1 - Paola

Wow! It's been awhile since my last posting.  It has been a CRAZY year.  No time to post so I'm looking forward updating my blog.  Let's start with a Baby Shower for a soon-to-be-born Baby Boy!
 Vanilla Chiffon Cake with Mango Buttercream

 Guest favours! Matching blue pails with a lolly and baby boy theme candies

On top of the cake above, my first foray to diaper cakes!  

The cake theme is based on this party theme decoration

200 cookies in 2 days!

Rainbow cookies + Vanilla, orange and lemon sugar cookies + matching bows = so cute!
The dilema.. bake the cookies way in advance so I am not rushed with icing and packaging but the sugar cookies won't taste as fresh or bake 2 days before the event and don't sleep but you have fresh tasting cookies for the event? Well.. the later of course! After 2 days in the kitchen...

Colours of the rainbow. Sugar cookies(Vanilla, orange, lemon) iced with royal icing.

Star Wars Cake

Star wars cake...hmm, so many options... lego-like or not! But in the end, I found these cake toppers as a set,  with light sabers that actual lights up.  Instead of making the 3D figurines that will cost $$, this is an another alternative. 

3D Panda Cake

When I received a request for a panda cake and the first thing I asked if they wanted a cutesy panda cake.  Definitely cutesy! 'Po' from Kung fu panda definitely came to mind so here is what I came up with...

Edible bamboo, chocolate covered rocks, gumpaste 3D panda

Stargazers Wedding Cake

Nirvana's wedding cake.  I had the pleasure to meet her fiance and parents and they are very sweet! One of the things I love about making event cakes are the people you meet. Delivery was new experience as I never delivered in a yacht before, there reception is on the Magic Charm yacht.  The cake is made out of buttercream (not fondant), I haven't worked in buttercream for many months.

Red Velvet with cream cheese frosting, gumpaste lilies and filler flowers

Edible gumpaste flowers

Pavan's Wedding Cake

This is such a timeless, elegant and simple design! I loved how this cake turned out.  The whole reception area is decorated with the same colours and I am so happy that the ribbon colours almost exactly matched the bride, Pavan's theme.  The ballroom is beautifully decorated!

Website Questions

Hi Everyone!  I got a few question about my website.  My main website is forwarded to my other site

Please be advise that if you typed the former and did not get forwarded to the latter, please use the second site. 



Got a request for a Naruto cake. A what cake? Naruto. Well, I guess this anime is not yet my children's age genre so never heard from it.  Google is the best place to research and educate ones self!

So, here is the result!
