Sugar Paste Creations

Just a couple of projects I was working on this week. Inspired by spring a colourful bunch of Eucalyptus blossoms complete with gum nuts and my personal favourite an adorable Chanel styled purse with Cymbidium orchids { my current favourite flower. }

To quote my son " Can these be eaten, " Technically yes, they are made out of modelling sugar paste but who wants to eat a Chanel purse? Covet yes, eat no. Anyway they look great on top of a cake for that special someone of course with a set of matching cupcakes they'd be perfect. Hope you like.

Blue Elephant Cupcakes

These decadent chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream were made for a delightful young lady's birthday. You guessed it she likes blue elephants... so this is what I came up with and I think they have just the right amount of cuteness. Hope a great birthday was enjoyed by all.

Bron's 50 th Cupcakes

A colourful batch of cupcakes to celebrate Bron's birthday. It was a 1960's inspired party and the cupcake icing matched Bron and her daughters dresses perfectly.Thanks for the photos Bron and I'm glad you had such a great night.

High Heels in the Jungle

This was so much fun to make. An 8 " chocolate mud cake covered in ganache and topped with fondant which I then painted to look like faux leopard print. The little high heel shoe which I made out of modelling sugar paste adds the finishing touch. Happy Birthday Mariangela hope you enjoyed the cake. xx

Birthday Cakes

These are some cakes I did for sisters celebrating their eleventh and thirteenth birthdays. Sophie chose cupcakes with a black and white " dice " inspired theme and Lani opted for a larger chocolate mud cake covered with a dark chocolate ganache and topped of with a blue fondant icing. ( thanks to Planet Cakes new book for the recipe ) I hear you girls were given a very posh birthday treat at one of the city's big hotels...tres chic. Hope you enjoyed the cakes and had an awesome birthday xx

Confirmation Cakes

Here are the cakes I created for my youngest son's Confirmation on the weekend. The top cake was a lemon flavoured sponge filled with lemon curd and cream. Covered with a limoncello sugar syrup (which kept the cake nice and moist) Topped of with a white chocolate ganache and decorated in pale blue fondant. Cupcakes were an assortment of vanilla and chocolate and my kids said "They rock"

Please Can I Have Some More

I know, what is this you are saying. This is a cupcake site so what's with the big cakes. Well just a few more pics to give you some ideas when you place your next order. I can't stop myself but to be honest these would look divine surrounded by a coordinating batch of mini cupcakes just picture it...but in the meantime hope these shots give you some inspiration.

Black and White

Here are some classic black and white themed cakes I made recently. One with a little bit of bling and well the other I just think classic and contempoary. The cakes are 7" diameter and the chocolate mud tastes delicious. The only thing missing of course is some gorgeous cupcakes to match. The 7" cake comes in an assortment of mouth watering flavours and decadently designed and decorated to your brief all for the cool price of $ 65 boxed and delivered. Or if you think you won't be able to eat all of that there is always the option of the 5" for $ 50 which looks equally as cool. These cakes look fabulous on top of a cupcake tower and really achieve the wow factor. Let me know what you think.

Fifty and Fabulous

Here's a great selection I made for my wonderful husbands birthday recently. Clients brief absolutely nothing to frou-frou and restrain yourself please. That's easier said than done, so with a bit of stealth and cunning I did manage to slip on the little chocolate hearts on the gold cases. Flavours were choc-chip and ginger ( they're the ones with the honeycomb on top, very macho) um next, white chocolate and caramel mud with the aforementioned chocolate hearts and by no means least vanilla, always a winner.

New Kid On The Block

Welcome, welcome to my first ever blog. Thought this might be a nice addition to my web page where I can show off some of my creations. Some lavendar looking cupcakes fit for a 13 year old popped in a box with a tonne of ribbon make the poshest birthday favours going. Just what you need to impress and dazzle your teenage chums. I have also included a 'topper' cake I whipped up on the weekend. A 5'' inch fondant encrusted baby that went to a very cool 40 year old who by the way had an even cooler birthday bash.
