A Chanel bag cake is the answer as this is affordable and edible too, which is delicious and stylish present for your beloved mums, sisters, wife, daughters, girlfriends.

Harry Potter Book Cake

Hi everyone

This is my second cake this month. The birthday girl is a Harry Potter fan.

It’s a white chocolate mud cake with dark chocolate ganache. This cake features a Harry Potter book, a wand and a Gold Snitch.

Everything is fondant except the wings of the snitch are gum paste while the snitch itself is a cake pop. Gold lustre dust was used to make the whole book and pages look old.

Thank you my beloved friend for asking me; and to create this cake for his daughter's important milestone.

~ Welcome to the world of adults, Alex. Happy 18th birthday to a young woman who is more mature and wise beyond her years. You are ready to take on the world. Stay positive and focused while conquering all your dreams. ~

There is one more cake to come next week. Thank you for stopping by.
Until then…

Happy baking

Tiger Print Cake & Cake Pops

Hi Everyone

Today, I am going to explain a bit how I decorated this two-tiered tiger print cake and then, a bit about how I can improve the look from a nice cake to a fabulous cake. Hopefully, the idea can help you to re-create the animal print cakes at home. 

Here is my first attempt at making an animal print cake for my friend's beloved mum's 80th birthday celebration. Now I have time to review my own work, I think I can make it even more natural next time (to trust my skills even more). 

As I have no much confidence to paint the animal prints (one mistake can ruin the whole cake); I used my new found zebra print mold from Marvellous Mold this time. I was told to change the colour tone from back and white to orange and black in order to showcase the tiger prints. I then randomly arranged the stripes on the cake. 

While I am writing this story, I realised that I have two more ways to create this cake and make the tiger prints more realistic. I can apply the skills to different animal prints in the future.

Method 1 (Beginner): 

1. Download the animal print you want online. 
2. Cut out the stripes or shapes. 
3. Roll out the fondant/gumpaste 1/4" in thickness.
4. Place the striped/shaped template on the fondant/gumpaste.
5. Cut fondant around the template.
6. Stick on the cake.

Method 2 (Professional):

1. Purchase the animal print stencil wherever you can find it from a cake decorating store or a craft shop (I found one but it took one month to deliver so I didn't use this method this time)
2. Wrap the stencil around the cake
3. Spray edible ink over the (this requires a bit of skills and more professional tools like a spray gun). 

Otherwise, google online and they are so many cake professions demonstrating how to create cakes like these.

This is also the first time I made all these adorable candy coated cake pops (I normally use fondant to cover and decorate them). The reason was I always burn my candy melts. Thanks to www.divascancook.com for her detailed explanation how to work on the candy melts. I had a great success of making my tiger print cake pops. Jeremy ate two at the party.

I have two more cakes I want to share with you soon. Until then, back to attend my two little koalas. 
Thank you for stopping by. 

Happy baking
