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.

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.

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.
