This cake was a special request for a 6 moth ” birthday” for the sweetest baby boy. Half a birthday?! Why not half cake?
Despite the fact that is was presented in half, it was half of a 10 x 8in cake so everyone had a piece of the juice pistachio cream cheese filling in the small get together.
Last year was the map, this year is the eagle.
Let the eagle soar!
Happy 4th of July to y’all.
This is Stuart.
Stuart is made of sugar.
Be like Stuart, be sweet!
Since Bill is a worldwide sensation, I thought Stuart could join him!
This is my first try on figurines and I’m really happy with the result. Stuart is a new achievement and brand new possibilities. You will see more from his familly soon. Stay tuned 😉
I present to you the “mosake” (mosaic cake)!
Me and my better-half celebrate our birthdays on the first days of January and, of course, the dates could not go without a cake.
The original idea was to make a simple cake with a mosaic band in the middle, but it felt wrong. Well not wrong… but little. As I was assembling, it was just too cute to be only a band and I went for the whole thing.
The succulents were a personal challenge. I have been thinking about succulents for a while, since they are everywhere in the (use-to-be-dry-not-anymore…) California, and this was a great match! The colors complement well and they look well placed.
- 6 x 8 in (it was quite tall);
- Orange and chocolate cake;
- White chocolate ganache filling;
- Gumpaste succulents and cords.
Special thanks to Valerie Pradhan, from the Wilton Method, from who I learnt the technique to make this beauty possible.
