Girly Girl Baptism Cake

It’s been a while since my last post.  Village Sweets created a Baptism Cake for a cutie pie “Lily-Rose”.  I made some Royal Icing Roses and painted them a soft iridescent Pink, roses to go with her name…  Gumpaste Bow and a Gumpaste Baby, I even added a cute ruffled diaper.  I draped a rosary across the cake as well.  Vanilla Cake and a Swiss Buttercream Icing, covered in an off-white Fondant.  

(This cake idea was from  Sophie Lacourciere, via Pinterest).

Cupcake Catwalk

Playing around with different designs for some cupcakes.  Ideas and possibilities are endless.  Cupcakes make great favors for parties, weddings and other events, especially themed occasions. You can easily just go crazy decorating them.  Here is a sample of some of my many cupcake designs, they are doing their best on the “Catwalk”.

Easter Garden Cupcakes

Easter will soon be hopping upon us, so I have been thinking up what I want my cupcakes to look like on my Easter table.  Hmmm, sooooo I have come up with a garden trellis with little roses!  I made up some Royal Icing roses and decorated my cupcakes garden style.  I think all the pastel colors made it look so springy!

Pretty in Pink

This cake was fashioned in  “3” and a “0” for a woman who is turning, you got it, 30!  tons of big roses in soft pink decorated both the numbers and a pennant banner was something different for the mention of the birthday girl.  Deep delicious and moist chocolate cake with butter-cream frosting, and just a few pearlesscent beads (edible) to add a little special detail to the cake.  We think,  so Pretty in Pink!  Bonne Fête Wilnie !!

Fresh Basket of Flowers

Making a cake can be so much fun, especially when it comes to design.  Put your mind to it and you can fashion a cake to whatever shape you like.  I love fresh flowers, especially from my garden.  An inspiring thought came to me to create a basket of fresh flowers complete with a ribbon wrapped handle and a pretty bow.  The flowers were made from Royal Icing and Gum paste.  The bow and ribbon were also gum paste.  I fashioned my handle with a Rice Krispie’s recipe.  The cake, a delicious moist Pumpkin Spice Cake and an Ultimate Vanilla Buttercream Frosting completes my basket weave piped design.
