Here is the cake I entered into the Go Bake Cake Decorating Expo 2014. It came 3rd place in my division & I’m super proud of it :) Hence all the photos!!! I was inspired by my friends fabric Charlie Jane Designs. She has this awesome fabric with the Plus & Arrow print on there. My husband made me a plus & arrow so I could imprint the fondant & use it like a stamp :) It was my first time using silver leaf! that was an experience!!
and if you follow my work then you’ll know how much I love pin wheels!!
Hope you like this cake as much as I do!!
Country Theme 21st
Another Country theme, but different again! It was fun making a more cartoonish horse rather than the realistic one I’m so used to making!
This was 8” & 6” chocolate cake with chocolate ganache :)
21st Cake, Country Life & Deer Hunting
I made this for my neighbour’s daughter’s 21st. It has a little bit of everything, her horse, country life, she enjoys hunting deer & it also shows places she has lived & studied.
It was interesting working on a cake that essentially had no back! every part of it had to be perfect!
They loved it - super happy :)
My daughter’s 10th birthday cake
I love the colour of this cake - the black with the neon rainbow colours. I first saw it from Bloom Cake Co. and asked if I could re create her design, which I’ve changed parts of for my daughter.
Bella is into 1D at the moment… so that had to be there. She also loves her onesie - so I decided to make her in her onesie on top of the cake :) her face turned out a little ‘older’ than I intended… unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to change that!
She loved it! YAY!
5th Fairytale Birthday
A unicorn & rainbow were required for this little girls birthday :) her mum had organised her birthday around fairytales - it sounded like an awesome party!! There is space on the board as mum was going to add some special things to the board :)
Ducati Bike Cake Topper.
This was made for a guy who ended up having 3 different celebrations & the bike went on each cake :) that’s some value for money right there!! ;)
Combined 60th & 40th
This cake was for a mother & daughter celebrating their birthday’s together. Peacock themed cake - original design for the side of the cake was from Royal Bakery.
