So excited to be teaching this hands-on class at The Americas Cake Fair in October. Sign up for the class and learn the secrets to creating this stunning crown on a pillow cake. We'll also be doing an additional demo so there are lots of opportunities to pick up some fresh, new, cake skills. Hope to see you there! Xx
A Golden Snitch, Harry Potter's wand and a Hogwarts Crest sculpted by hand, were the edible elements that came together to make this spell book cake really come to life for one special young lady who just turned eleven. The worn leather book cover hid a delicious French Vanilla Cake with smooth Chocolate Buttercream. But don't judge me for playing with food...cos I'm not gonna lie, the minute Harry's wand was dry, it was waved once (or twice) while saying "Expelliarmus!" ;-)
What a little cutie pie!!! Recreating the Shopkins "Lippy Lips" character out of cake was so much fun. Such a tall, narrow cake took a bit of planning but the finished piece (at almost two feet tall) was totally worth the effort. We made sure to find some extra tall candles that looked great next to the giant lipstick, and what better way to line them up ready for the birthday girl's wish, than in little custom-made cupcake candle holders. Happy Birthday Emina!
Oh Snap! Fuzzy Monkey just went 3D!! For those of you who remember the Fuzzy Monkey Baby Shower Cake we created last year, well, 'Baby Xavier' just turned one (I know, how time flies!) and in a few short months he will be getting a new sibling. So we teamed up with Courtney and Joe again (mom and dad) to continue the theme and created a combined first birthday cake for Xavier and a gender-reveal cake for the new baby. Curious?…it's gonna be a boy!!! Who would have thought that a fuzzy little monkey would become the star of his own cake and then grow up to become a cute three-dimensional edible cake topper?!
For the birthday boy who loves dinosaurs, we created a fun Stegosaurus cake for him and his friends to devour. French Vanilla Cake with Hazelnut Buttercream, Chocolate Cake with White Chocolate Mousse, and don't forget those magical mushrooms—I taste-tested one, (you know, for quality control purposes) and they were delicious!
"Steg" the baby dinosaur was amazing to bring to life in the studio. He was four inches tall, green and covered in scales...not the usual qualities I look for...but he absolutely stole my heart!
