Gluten free minecraft cat cake

This was a TradeMe order, the birthday boy really loves this minecraft black/white cat, and wondered if I could put it on the cake!

The cake was made gluten free, vanilla flavour with buttercream filling and topping, the cat was interesting, very simple yet I had to incoperate 3 shades of grey and black to create this image. Maybe I could have made it bigger but the tail took up more space than I had imagined, so had to shrink the kitty!

Lychee Creme Brulee

First of all, yes, I’m still around! Haven’t had any orders recently, so am posting one of my home-experiments instead.

We were at Logan Brown a few weeks ago, and had this absolutely amazing Lychee Creme Brulee, that I thought I should try making!

So after taking out 50ml of my cream and exchanged for lychee syrup, and putting 1.5 pieces of lychee in the centre of each creme brulee before pouring in the custard, here it is!

I must say it wasn’t as amazing as Logan Brown’s, but I’m getting there, will try again next time when I have lots of egg yolks 🙂

 


T-Rex Gluten-free cake

Yes, yet another belated cake post!

The birthday boy is apparently very particular about his T-Rex, which must have a red head, yellow body, pink and purple hands and feet. This made for a very colourful combination! I made my own decision to change the back of the dinosaur to red and the front to yellow, so as not to have a clashy “cut-off” line between the red head and the yellow body. Fortunately the boy was happy with it!

Personally I liked the multi-coloured border 😛

 

 

 

Feedback:

What a great trade, we all enjoyed the cake very much and my little boy loved the T Rex on top. Thank you.


Cookie-pops


I’ve had the idea of making cookie-pops for AGES, but never got around to doing it.

Finally, here they are! Decorated with royal icing, although next time I won’t even bother dyeing the cookies in all sorts of colours when I’m going to ice over them anyway…

Apologies, the last photo is a bit yellow (it was no longer sunlight)

 

They can be yours at the Frank Kitt Underground Market at Wellington on Saturdays between 10am-4pm if you’re quick! 1/3 of them have already been snatched up!


New cakes for sale

It is interesting to go back and see my post in Feb and discovering that I’ve managed to produce different cakes every week, for that variety and testing my imagination (also to keep returning customers interested)

Every week I find out that certain products are very popular, and some not so. Then the following week, somehow the products that were popular the previous week suddenly got left aside while other products are snatched up quickly.

The doggie cookies, for example, sold extremely well the first week, then the second week no one was interested. 3 weeks later, suddenly everyone wants the doggie cookies again.

There’s one week when I suddenly had heaps of customers who needed gluten-free products! What were the chances?

The ones that have been constantly popular are definitely the mini cupcakes though. It’s the cuteness of the size and the little gummy bear sitting on the top, I have decided, that makes people go “awwww!!!!” and just had to try one.

Here they are!

 

Aren’t they cute? The blue cup is chocolate brownie, red one is strawberry, and the green one is vanilla.

I sell quite a few of these every week, and I am planning to add more flavours for all to choose!

 

Another popular cake of mine, which is my absolute FAVOURITE carrot cupcake recipe, is this one:

 

Unfortunately I haven’t mastered my Japanese Cheesecake (chiffon cheesecake)’s presentation, so I feel a bit embarrassed taking photos of them, but they’re also among the most popular cakes I’m currently selling, which means I will continue to sell them!

New addition to the pantry is my attempt at Rainbow Slices (based on the Kueh Lapis, or Indonesian/Malaysian thousand-layer cake, but my version) which has a very rich and dense texture, took me a good 7-hour work, and here it is:

I will not be able to attend the market for the rest of April, but will be back the very first Saturday in May, so don’t forget to come and try some of these cakes! 🙂

Fruit Cake

Christmas is near! A fruit cake is of course called for, and I bake 2 types of fruit cakes: rich ones, for people who likes them for the richness; or a lighter one, which is more buttery.

Fruit cakes must be ordered 2 weeks ahead for the flavour to merge, or a month is even better.
