Buttons, Bows and Baby cupcakes

These adorable cupcakes were ordered by a lovely lady for her Baby Shower.

I love the blend of colours and the little sleeping babies perched on pillows of pink buttercream!

Each of the decorations were hand made from fondant and let me tell you with all the rain this week getting them to dry was a lesson in patience, the weather has been playing havoc with the completed sugar decorations, one day it’s hot and humid, the next it’s cold then right back to wet and humid… rinse and repeat. Arggghhhh  🙂

Just when I thought they were all dry it rained and they reabsorbed moisture from the air causing them to go soft again…very trying indeed lol

Fortunately the end result was what counted and they worked out perfectly, I had to bring a delivery helper with me on this one as the venue was at a lovely home which sat on top of a large hill with a VERY steep driveway, way too steep to drive up and hope they wouldn’t topple sitting in the back by themselves, so my assistant had to hold the cake boxes and pivot them to keep them level as we ascended.

The rain slicked driveway was a nerve wracking experience carrying boxes of cupcakes while repeating “don’t fall, don’t fall” under my breath, but they made it to the table unharmed and looking gorgeous, pity the same could not be said of me in all my rain sodden and wide eyed glory 😀

Mother’s Day

I hope Everyone enjoyed a Wonderful mothers day, for once I got to spend the day relaxing and having others wait on me, if only that would happen every day LOL

I made my Mother a cake, which she adored and took home with her uncut !!!

“Too pretty to cut !” she exclaimed …… but..but….

Mind you I was already too full from an indulgent lunch to complain with too much enthusiasm  🙂

When we were kids the street was lined with trees covered with beautiful pink cherry blossoms that used to swirl like a snowstorm when the wind picked up, so I chose a vintage cherry blossom design out of sheer nostalgia.

Did I mention I love all things vintage!

The cake was a light moist and chocolatey mudcake…..is Chocolatey a word? Ahh well it is now if it isn’t already !

The mudcake was coated in a good amount of chocolate Ganache, followed by a layer of white fondant which was then decorated with fondant blossoms and royal icing piped branches .   Yum!

Hello Everyone!

Well here I am!

I finally bit the bullet and decided to create a blog because so many of you asked me “where can we see your cakes online and see regular updates and discussions !”

Until now the majority of my orders were via word of mouth, so after much Uhmming, Ahhing and indecision I settled on a Blog as a way to ‘get myself out there’.

Unlike many other options it seemed to me that there was so much more freedom and interaction to be had via Blogging, it felt much more personal, which of course suits me, after all I do make one of a kind custom cakes  personally designed specifically for individuals, corporations, Special interest groups etc etc.

It all made perfect sense.

Not only can you all see my cakes, but you can comment, ask questions, arrange orders, or just chat, I’m really looking forward to it !!

Eventually, as my Cake Blog Journey progresses, I will be adding recipes, how to’s, Tips and tricks and all sorts of Interesting bits and pieces, as well as the weird and wonderful.

Sounds like a plan to me !!
