Here are a few of my favourite cakes from the past few years. I consider these my best and each time I attempt a new design I learn a new skill or find out how not to make a certain feature work.
My cousins 13th birthday cake. This was a copy of the real guitar he got for his birthday and my first attempt at a guitar. I was really pleased with how it turned out and the birthday boy loved it.
My first ever baby shower cake. The booties on this cake were tough to master. I was lucky to find a tutorial with templates on www.cakecentral.com which helped a lot.
This is a simple number cake that I was given free reign to design however I wanted. Covering the numbers with fondant was more difficult than I had anticipated but I was happy with the results.
This is a birthday present wrapped cake for a 40th birthday. I used this fabulous tutorial to help me with the bow http://www.cakeboss.com/FondantBowTutorial.aspx
This was a joint birthday cake for a father and son, their favourite hobbies were cars and weight-lifting.
A 1st birthday cake based on the little girls favourite teddy Mrs Duck.
One of my favourite cakes is this heart shaped chocolate box that a colleague ordered as a surprise for his wifes birthday. It was a copy of the one that Bakerella made for Valentines Day.
I used a dense chocolate cake to make the box and the ‘chocolates’ were made with the cake scraps mixed with icing, formed into chocolate shapes and coated in different types of chocolate. These cake truffles are a great way to use up cake leftover after carving a design.
