Wii Console Cake

Happy Birthday, Shin Yih

Wii Console Cake
Are you young in heart? Our friend – Shin Yih is. A father of one beautiful baby girl, Hannah who takes his Wii games seriously. I thought I would keep it simple the first time I tried to make a console cake for his birthday.

I baked two 6” square cakes Jaffa Mud Cake, which allowed me to double the size from the real life Wii console. I think this cake is a combination of guilty pleasures and edible fun. It is complicated but I am pretty happy with the result at the end.

Dear Shin Yih

Happy birthday on your very special day.

To everyone, thank you for stopping by!

Dark Chocolate Panel Cake

Cakes by JudyC
I went to join Judy, the owner of Cakes by JudyC on Sunday to create this beautiful decorated Chocolate Decadence Cake.

The top of the cake was decorated with the fresh roses or you could top with your own sweet treats on your cake later on. Well, another creation that I can’t easily cut through it just by its beauty.

The flavours were “White Choc Mud Cake” and “Dark Choc Mud Cake”.

Thank you for stopping by.
Happy baking~

First Topsy Turvey Cake

Happy Birthday, Claire

A two tier topsy turvy cake for my dearest friend, Claire.

Inside the bottom tier is the chocolate banana cake with milk chocolate ganache covered by the dark chocolate ganache. Inside the top tier is the chocolate mudcake & Bailey with milk chocolate ganache covered by the dark chocolate ganache.

The cake is covered in pink and white fondant; decorated with chocolate and white fondant strips and pearls.

The topper is a white pastillage Mardi Gras mask embossed with non-edible feathers, pearls and diamante rhinestones. Not shown in the photo are some blossoms at the back of the mask to hide the support.


The mini emblishments are made from several molds covered by 24K edible gold leaf.

Dear Claire
We know we are getting old when the only thing we want for our birthday is not to be reminded of it. I just want to say: enjoy the night of the celebration and the cake.  Happy Birthday to you.
