Now we've all been told size doesn't matter but well quite frankly I think we have all been fooled or at least lulled into a false sense of security because the truth is ladies and gents when you happen across something good ,even great, BIG is most definitely BETTER.
This is what I like to think when it comes to cupcakes so tada the ultimate Giant Cupcake made for the wonderful Nicole to celebrate her 18 th birthday.
This luscious, largish babe sat rather coquettishly atop of a wonderful cupcake tower in all her pink beauty to be admired and imbibed. Happy 18 th birthday Nicole. I'll post some more pics tomorrow.
Imagine being 21 again and getting ready to travel the world. Mmm remember that. Well anyway this was the theme of Hannah's birthday cake ordered by her lovely mum Sue. The world map is made out of fondant icing. I traced an outline from a children's atlas and sat down with my trusty scalpel and did a little bit of fancy cutting and voila... something like that anyway. Best wishes for your trip Hannah, you'll make memories for a lifetime.

This three tiered wedding cake is probably one of the simplest designs a bride could want for her wedding cake. That quote of, " less is more," seems appropriate in this case.
The design is simple yet elegant and the ribbon can be any colour to suit your theme.
I'll let you in on a secret the little bit of bling on the bow $ 2.99 from Spotlight.
Imagine how beautiful a lovely vintage broach or pin would look and if it has sentimental value it will make your wedding cake even more special.
Over the next month or so I am going to show you a variety of wedding cakes I have made and would love to hear from you to discuss your cake needs. Big or small It would be an honour for me to make your wedding cake. Contact me for a consultation and we'll come up with a design suited to your taste and requirements.
Of course I am still making and decorating cupcakes so if this is your preference please let me know. Call me crazy but cupcakes still weave their magic and are always a crowd pleaser.
Any way just some ideas to toss around, if you're interested please contact me I would love to hear from you. Thanks for dropping by and please leave me comment I would love to know what you think.
This was a yummy Hummingbird Cake I made for the family and got a little carried away with the decorating. I was thinking it would look beautiful as a centrepiece for a baby shower and matched with these cupcakes would look very pretty. What do you think?
P.S. A Hummingbird Cake is made with crushed pineapple.
