Thank You Cookies








Hi Cake Sweeties

It has been a while since my last creation. I am not being lazy at all; in fact, my daily life is full of different commitments.

Before I have time to share what I did at the Halloween Party I was hosting last month, I want to share these beautiful thank you cookies I made for my friend.

Our boys will be heading to Prep next year. It will be the end of their Kindergarten Year with our nominated Care Agencies. Her son is with a private Day Care Mum since he was only a baby. There’s nothing like the customised treats to make an educator or a day care Mum in this case feel loved and appreciated…especially handmade treats. 

It’s always sad to say goodbye to a good educator and walk into the future. These cookies are also the perfect way to send your kids to the new school with a smile on their face.

Enjoy,

Beth

Mini Sushi Cake




Dear Cake Sweeties

It’s my dearest friend Nancy’s birthday. Nancy lived in Japan since she became an exchange student and came back only early this year.

I made her a mini round cake made to look like a sushi roll. I used tic tac to emulate rice (the idea came from “How to Cake It”).  Inside the cake, the salmon and avocado were all fondant. The wasabi and ginger were fondant too and the soy sauce is brown colouring in order to take a fun photo.

Dear Nancy

お誕生日おめでとうございます.

Thank you all for stopping by. See you soon for our upcoming Halloween No Tricks but Treats.

Miss Chelsea's 1st Birthday







Dear Cake Sweeties

Last weekend, the cake design was in collaboration with my friend who incorporated several of her and her baby daughter’s favourite elements onto the cake and the desserts. 

I like the way she got several elements complimenting each other at the end, such as the hot air balloon, cupcakes with fondant snowflakes and Ballerina Tutu Toppers; and macarons with fondant crowns really got family and friends’ hearts soaring high!

The 5” tall cake included handmade cloud formation border at the bottom. In the middle, she bought me the “two angels holding a heart” mould to use.

Flavours included vanilla and chocolate sponge cakes with milk chocolate ganache. Primary colours included shades of pink and purple. Flavours of macarons were vanilla and hazelnut sandwiched with salted caramel chocolate ganache. Flavours of the cupcakes were our beautiful and moist vanilla and very healthy beetroot red velvet.

It was a beautiful celebration and what a honour to be part of it.

Dear Chelsea

Hope that you had a sweet 1st birthday. Not that you need any more sugar, you’re already such a sweetheart.

Thank you for having us and we three musketeers had a fun and sweet time.

Thank you for stopping by. Hope to see you soon.

Gudetama Pudding Cake









Dear Cake Sweeties

Here is another Sanrio Character Cake I made for my dear friend's nephew. I love all Sanrio characters whether they are cheerful Hello Kitty or Lazy Egg.

In the beginning while doing more researches about this particular character. I found no one ever made this cake yet; so I don't have any references how it would turn out. Thankful the cake was well-loved! 

The cake was our delicious vanilla sponge cakes, which I added the marmalade syrup for extra moistness, due to the fact that I spent quite some times to carve the shape. After I am happy with the shape, I crumbed coat with our luxurious dark chocolate ganache. The birthday boy doesn't like chocolate so just very thin layered of chocolate filled and crumbed coat before I covered the whole cake with fondant.

This is also the first time I made the toppers (the giant cherry and whipped cream both out of styrofoam) after I finished decorating the cake. In the photo, the cherry and whipped cream occupied the top of the pudding equally. Hence, I waited until I finished decorating the cake before I started with the toppers like I always do.

Dear Louis

Hope you have an EGG-Citing day! Happy 10th birthday~ Thank you for allowing us to be part of your milestone celebration.

Designer Shoe Box Cake










Hi Cake Sweeties

My new fashion cake design is featuring a finely hand sugar-crafted red Manolo Blahnik stiletto on top of a white box with a red sugar-crafted rose.

The cake itself aka the shoe box is using two layers of red velvet cakes (no edible color but the beetroot purees) and two layers of carrot cakes, filled with cream cheese whipping cream and frosted with white chocolate ganache. You can't get enough of healthy elements here.

I am trying very hard with sharp edges on cornered cakes but I am happy with the final result because I have added the hand painted labels on both sides of the cake.

This cake is perfect for the fashion conscious or Sex in the City fans. A cake for my dear friend Claire who used to only wears high heel shoes all the times. Since she became a Mum of two beautiful girls, she is no longer wearing any, hence I made her this cake for her birthday this year.

Dearest Claire

Life is a journey so enjoy every mile. Happy birthday!

Thank you for looking and see you next time.

3D Rolling Pin Cake



Hi Cake Sweeties

Today I had a baker theme cake for my birthday this year again. I wanted to incorporate something that would reflect my style and one of my profound interests i.e. baking.

Last year, I had some basic caking tools on the cake such as a rolling pin, a wooden spoon and a piping bag as well as a figurine of myself. This year, I am settled on making a 3D rolling pin cake. I went with a new chocolate mud cake recipe I found online and gave it a twist on flour and sugar rations. It was a very dense cake but my children still like it.

I want to say thank you for everyone’s supports over the years. Although I am doing baking or caking as a hobby at the moment, and your supports and trusts let me getting creative and my imagination go freely every time. As Albert Einstein said: I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. I am deeply grateful that I can always use my imagination and get creative in order to create a piece of sweet arts for you and your beloved ones.

And Happy birthday to me. Hope to see you all very soon for my next creation.
Happy baking

Gender Reveal Cake




What Is Your Guess?
Little Gent or Little Lady

Hi Cake Sweeties

This is a cake that definitely keeps you guessing. A friend asked if I could make a cake for a small gender reveal party for her sister. Of course I would be very happy and honoured to do this :-)

I tinted my vanilla sponge cake with the colour symbolising the gender of the baby. It is also a fun cake filled with a colourful sweet surprise that tumbles out when they cut into it revealing to their eager family and friends if the baby-to-be is a girl (pink) or a boy (blue). Then, I frosted the cake with our Belgium White Chocolate Ganache and decorated with matching fondant scolloped borders and polka dots. Finally. I added two handmade fondant onesies cake toppers on the top. 

Gender reveal parties are a fun and exciting way begin the introduction of a new baby into the world. We also offer gender reveal cupcakes. If your are planning a party, please feel free to contact us.

Thank you for stopping by.
