The Little Black Dress Cake

Sometimes you can picture a cake in your head, the design , colours the overall "look" you are trying to achieve. It's very gratifying when you are able to pull it together and make it happen. I feel this way about this little cake. It just strikes a chord with me, simple nothing fancy but like the ultimate little black dress just so right. A timeless classic that will get you through many situations. Enough said oh one more thing, the cake begged to have matching cookies. My cupcakes with wee shoes would complete the ensemble, treat yourself to all the accessories and have your Carrie Bradshaw moment, ha ha . Please enjoy let me know what you think. x
P.S. The flower next to the cookies is my sugar paste Peony I made at Alan Dunn's workshop. You'll see more of that on some cakes.

I had a bit of fun with this one. A cake to celebrate a 40th birthday for a fellow who enjoys golf. Cake is chocolate 7" covered in fondant icing all decorations edible apart from the flag pole which is a skewer. Hope you had a fantastic birthday.

Black and White Wedding Cake

I know I have shown this design before but sometimes less is more. This was the wedding cake I made as requested for Kristy and Chris. The wedding was Friday the 17th February and the cake flavours were bottom tier chocolate, middle tier white chocolate and top tier caramel mud. Best wishes to the happy couple it was a pleasure to make your wedding cake and I wish you all the very best.

Comic Book Inspired Cupcakes

Ute ordered these cupcakes to help celebrate her husbands birthday. The party was themed around comic book/ super heroes with the host and hostess dressed as Poison Ivy and a little cowabunga Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. { I hope I got that right }

Anyway I had a lot of fun making these. I hand painted some of the images and cut out the others from fondant icing. They look pretty cool all grouped together and what a great theme for a party. Hope you enjoy the pictures, thanks for dropping by.
