Peppa Pig cake

First cake of the year, is the notorious Peppa Pig!

Not too sure what the craze is with kids, every childΒ I’ve heard about is obsessed with Peppa Pig! I must say for the little I’ve seen, it seems educational and teaches good values, which tends to be missing from kids shows these day and age, so keep it up Peppa!

Aashiya is also in love with Peppa Pig that she wanted one for her 3rd birthday. This was a big 12 inch vanilla chiffon cake with chantilly cream for her day care centre.

Are you or is your child infatuated with Peppa Pig too? What do you love about her?

Pocoyo vanilla chiffon cake

Here’s the 2nd cake for Tony, his younger son Nolan’s birthday. He ordered a vanilla chiffon cake (I checked again this time to make sure it’s not chocolate!) pretty much everything’s the same except for the picture on top – 7-inch, whipped cream filling, but he’d liked less food colouring – I see that my attempt to make the navy blue wasn’t really necessary after all!

I like this one light actually, especially with the yellow background, really makes the blue character POP!

I’m so out of it, it’s only after they’ve picked up the cake that I looked up this character – apparently he’s called Pocoyo, some kids TV show thingy?

Yes, in case you’re wondering why it looks bigger than that previous 7″ cake, it’s dos I made it 8″ this time to make up for that chocolate cake mistake. I’m surprised how 1 inch makes such a big difference, it doesn’t look as crowded anymore! Either that or I was too ambitious with the size of the rocket on that previous cake, who knows? πŸ™‚

Nolan’s classmates are in for a treat – Tony’s also ordered 40 mini cupcakes to share with his childcare centre on Tuesday!

 


Rocket chiffon cake

Tony, who’s ordered birthday cakes for his sons since I could remember, ordered 2 cakes this time, one for each son whose birthdays were just a few days apart.

He must have lots of faith in me (lol), ordered a cake 2 days before he needed it, on a Monday night! Haha, gave me a bit of a freight, but how could I turn him down, rushed to the supermarket during my lunch break at work on Tuesday, and after teaching got straight to baking the cake at 7pm. I was pretty proud that I managed to finish the cake just before midnight!

I made a 7″ vanilla chiffon cake with the rocket picture Tony had provided, filled with whipped cream. The picture of the rocket had a navy blue background, and since that was hard to make, I went with the darkest blue I could produce.

After finishing the cake, I went online to check the email Tony sent me, and there it was – 7″ chocolate chiffon cake with whipped cream – right in front of me. CHOCOLATE! How did I miss that? Well there’s no going back, he’s picking up the cake the next day at 4:30pm, I immediately emailed him and apologised for the oversight. I offered to salvage it by sprinkling chocolate on it, and thankfully he was nice about it and was happy with the chocolate sprinkle, hence the chocolate shavings you see at the bottom of the cake – I know, it was a lame save but better than nothing!

At least they said they all enjoyed it πŸ™‚

BTW this photo wasn’t the best I’ve taken, I literally got home at 4:25pm, took out the cake, sprinkled the chocolate around the cake, got the camera, by the time I set up the cake to take a photo, Tony’s car pulled up – I took about 3 snaps and hoped the photos came out ok – this was the best one, lol!

Cute Dinosaur Banana Cake

The banana cake + lemon icing combo must have worked, as Michelle came back to order another for her son’s birthday after the my little pony cake for her daughter.

This dinosaur on the cake was to match the invitation that was sent out for the boy’s party. It was a 10-inch banana cake, with no filling and thin icing, requested by mum, and the icing was of course lemon.

Instead of the usual border, I tried a different one, wasn’t too sure about the colour I chose (but it matched the cake!) but was happy with the look of it!


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!


My little pony banana cake

Michelle ordered this cake via my Facebook page, her daughter Brooke was celebrating her 4th birthday, and she loved My Little Pony. After some back-and-forth discussion, we’ve decided that a printed image would be the best fit, and as they’re after a cake that has less icing, they had requested a cake with no filling, and with a thin icing on top.

The combination I’m curious about, as I’ve never tried these 2 flavours together, but it’s a 12″ Banana cake and the icing is lemon – with edible image from Build-a-Birthday. As the cake was quite a bit bigger than the image, I had decided to decorated thus, and I think it worked well like this!

Happy birthday Brookey!


Mickey Mouse Banana Cake

First order in 2015, last time I made a Mickey Mouse cake it was my first time trying the piping-cartoon-character decorating style, how I’ve come!

This is also one of the very few none-circular cakes I’ve made, also the first banana cake order I’ve had, so a few firsts!

The cake turned out very well, super soft and moist, it was filled with buttercream of course, and quite liked the red/blue border that I attempted.
