Gumpaste Figures & Flowers
And now for more Hello Kitty! This creation was to finish off our birthday weekend celebrating with family.
First I have to make a comment – don’t mind the cake plate! We got it cheap from a local store at the end of the Valentine’s day stuff. The original cake design we had planned to do would have matched it a little better. But then Emily and I ended up going another direction and I decided to just use it anyway as it made a great serving platter.
Anyway – that said… Emily laid out the design for this one. After seeing a few pics online, she knew she wanted a 3D head on top. The head is made of rice krispie treats. I’m making up a basic tutorial on making rice krispies for this purpose and how to create a shape with them to use like this. This kitty is covered in white chocolate melts. She has an M&M nose, gumpaste bow and I used a food marker for the eyes and whiskers.
The cakes themselves are 6″ and 8″. The top cake is white with mini chocolate chips and a chocolate pudding filling. The bottom is a chocolate cake with an oreo filling. All at the birthday girl’s request. 🙂
This fancy cake was made for my niece turning 6…and she loves Fancy Nancy and all things fancy herself. This is a 6″ round cake with buttercream icing. Fondant bow and “ribbon”. The crown & glasses are gumpaste and the necklace is made of sugar pearls.
This cake was for September at my husband’s work. It was based off another cake I had seen online. All fondant with gumpaste flowers. I used my airbrush to give it a gradient. Cake sizes are 4″, 6″ & 8″.
Back in June of 2007 I was asked to make a bridal shower cake for my wonderful cousin, Aly. This cake pic has had a home at the top of the blog since day 1 and I get SO many comments on that cake. Well now 3 yrs later we are celebrating the soon to be born baby to this wonderful couple! 🙂 So of course I was excited to do the baby shower cake! I went off of the party ware they had purchased ~ see a pic below to compare 🙂 Cake is all buttercream except the birds and nest, which are gumpaste.
I had the honor of making my mom’s wedding cake in early June. She requested the floating tiers and said she was using pink but otherwise let me do as I wished. So I ended up getting myself some new cutters to learn peonies and added in the hydrangeas and roses I already knew. The rest of the cake is buttercream. The hydrangea blossoms on the side are gumpaste like the top flowers. These tiers were 8″, 10″ and 12″.
Two tier cake (6″ – 8″) for a little girl celebrating her 1st Communion. Gumpaste cross and roses. Buttercream icing with fondant accents.
Three tier 6-8-10″ square cakes. Buttercream iced with accents of fondant flowers. Birds are gum paste.
Here is the March cake for hubby’s work ~ a little gift for them 🙂
My daughter is at it again – designing her own cupcakes to take to school today. She picked it all out… and even helped me do them.
