A Paris Cake for a 21st Birthday

I had never made a "Paris' themed cake before. Where do I start? Why, with Mr Google of course!

Mr Google helped out again with lots of images of a 'PARIS CAKE'. The majority were in white, black and pink. Not sure why as the national flag is red, white and blue. But anyway black, pink and white makes for a lovely colour combination for a female.

The next thing that stuck out for me on the majority of the images was - you guessed it - an Eiffle Tower. So began a search to find an ornament that would stand amongst the flowers, on top of the cake. Couldn't find one anywhere - I don't live in France but on the other side of the world - AUSTRALIA. I came to the conclusion that I would have to make one. Not sure if I could, so back to Mr Google to try and access a pattern and I found one.

So here is the cake [note it is without the famous structure] I thought I would leave that for the customer to place on the cake. Happy Birthday Carissa.

I used the pattern to copy the shape and added the 'iron frame work' details with edible ink pen.


Hi Janet,
I would  like to say thank you so much  for an amazing job on the cake.  Everyone loved it. It was a big hit. we would  recommend you to all our friends.

A Bright Cake!

A bright cake was ordered and so here is the result. Lots of bright with spots, bows and gerberas. Oh and a lollypop adorns the top of the cake.

The client baked the cake (economic) and I provided the "glorification"

The cake is to celebrate the birthday (number One) of Audrey and is to be held in the Botanic Gardens in Albury. Expected temp 40 degrees +.

I hope everyone survives!

Barbie Cake for Charlie

A Barbie cake was requested by my granddaughter Charlotte. She was to be 6 on January 1. She requested it have colours of pink, purple and white. Now I am an avid Op-shop shopper always searching for a bargain and it happened that I found a great Barbie with pink hair. When  I got her home I gave her the full beauty treatment and she turned out to be the ideal centre star of the creation.
The cake comprised six layers of butter cake coloured pink, vanilla and chocolate sandwiched with dark chocolate ganache and covered with white chocolate ganache. the layers of fondant are frilled around her.
I loved making this cake - 'twas fun!
