Picture Post: Cake Extravaganza

15 10 2010

So once again I’ve neglected this blog.  A combination of life & work getting in the way of other pursuits.  I have also been experiencing problems with my netbook meaning I couldn’t get images uploaded.  All very pitiful excuses but thems the breaks. Onwards and upwards….this is basically a picture post of recent cakes with a little blurb about each one.  I do hope to get back on track with the blogging but I said that the last time, and we all know how that turned out!

This cake was for an 80 year old who loves watching the birds feed on her bird table.  I was given free reign with the design as long as it included a bird table and Robins (which are her favourite bird)  Sometimes I prefer to work from a very specific design, other times I prefer to be free to do what I want & in this case I was so happy with the outcome.  The cake is vanilla with raspberry and vanilla filling.  The table is fondant covered cake with handpainted woodgrain effect.  The robins are rice crispie treats covered in white fondant and hand painted with paste food colours.  The seeds are fondant.

Further pictures and the rest of the cakes are after the jump: Read the rest of this entry »
