The Wiggles Cake





Hi Cake Sweeties

Before I talk about Paul's second birthday cake, I wanted to share this colourful cake made for a sweet little girl first.

For sweet Sherie's second birthday, Sherie's mummy wanted "The Wiggles" cake just like this one from "Contessa's Cakes". 

The cake is our 8" delicious and moist chocolate mud cake, filled with dark chocolate ganache and fondant finish. All figurines including the rainbow, a number 2 with yellow Wiggle's hair bow on it, and stars with her name, are fully handmade sugar crafts and edible except of the wires.

~~
Dear Sherie

At 2, you are twice as adorable and precious as you were a year ago. Happy second birthday, cutie pie!
~~

I love how colourful this cake turned out. Sherie was definitely getting "blown away" with this unique cake design. Mummy told me that she loves the cake so much and couldn't stop starring at it. There is nothing better than a happy little girl that appreciate the work that we put in.

Thank you for stopping by.
Happy baking

Great Gatsby Cake & Desserts











Hi Everyone

I was quite nervous for a few weeks leading up to my hubby's 40th surprised party early this month. He thought I was working for someone's engagement party the whole time. A big thank to all family and friends who helped to hide the whole things very well. He was very stocked and touched on how much effort I put in just for one night to spoil him.

We had a Great Gatsby inspired birthday party. It sent my heartbeat racing (in a good way) to see all these beautiful Great Gatsby cakes online. 

The design of Paul's cake came from the invitation (please check out 巧比工作坊). One tier of chocolate mud cake and one tier is a dummy cake. Decorated in a beautiful black, white and old vintage gold combo. The finishing touches were a sparkly gold diamante ribbon with white feathers and beaded bow for the bottom tier; with a gold acrylic number topper and handmade name plaque for the top tier. I added gold splatter on both tiers to complete the Gatsby look.

I did make the cake stand for the party so the gold on the cake can match the gold on the cake stand.

Furthermore, the desserts for the Gatsby event included:

1. Chocolate Cupcakes with a white vanilla buttercream decorated with gold sprinkles
2. Chocolate and Hazelnut Macaroons with chocolate ganache and Nutella filling; painted in gold lustre dust mixed with vodka
3. Brown Sugar Cookies were decorated with fondant; stamped with a vintage car or number 40 cutout then with gold splatter too. If you are a vintage car lover, you may notice the car is a 1930s model but I just couldn't get hold of one in 1920s. 
4. Dark Chocolate Cigars were delicious because I added some milk chocolate ganache as filling
5. Rock Candy sticks: store bought
6. Mini champagne: store bought
7. Ferrero Rocher: store bought 
8. Gold Jumbo Candy Balls: store bought

Venue: Runcorn Tavern

At the end of the night, most desserts were gone so no favour boxes packed to take home, but a party like this is sure to have every guest feeling like they are in a dream for one night! This party might be quite over the top and ostentatious from the other birthday parties I have organised so far, but that's really what a Great Gatsby themed party is all about. We left with another great memory surrounding by loved ones again.

For more information of how to organise a Great Gatsby party, please check out "巧比工作坊". 

Thank you for stopping by. I have another cake to share from our own celebration on Paul's actual birthday.

Later then and happy baking

Emmet Lego Movie Cake




Hi Everyone

Before I tell you about my hubby's big 40th surprise party two weeks ago (am still waiting for the professional photograph); I want to quickly show you this Lego cake I made for a little boy's 8th birthday over the weekend.

Daniel is a sweet boy who and his big sister love to look after my two kids whenever we meet up. Mum was my wedding makeup artist and we were next door neighbours and didn't know each other until the wedding. Daniel was born two weeks after my oldest niece Sophie, he as well has always in bakingmummy's heart. Due to mum and dad's working commitments, he has no birthday party this year but I know he will love a cake to celebrate at home.

I cannot think of anything but a Lego cake for an 8 years old boy. Funny enough, I haven't got time to see the Lego movie. Hence, I went online to google some ideas. I came across a video on Youtube by "Creative Cakes by Sharon". Straightaway, I knew I had to make this cake for Daniel.

The only thing I added to the cake was the yellow candy lego blocks. The cake was a vanilla buttercream cake with milk ganache then covered in bright coloured fondants.

~~
Dear Daniel 

A birthday is a gateway,
A birthday is a door into brand new adventures you've never had before.
So sail away or fly away into a fresh new year.
You are eight years old! Hurrah...Hurrah!
The world gives you a cheer.
~~

Until next time which will not be long, stay sweet~

Happy baking
