Cupcake Weekend

The main theme of this weekend was cupcakes. I baked a record number of nearly 200. Thankfully I had help decorating - the lovely ladies of the Super Swirls workshop were naturals in making the most beautiful cupcake swirls. Ofcourse they got to take their cupcakes home to show their family and friends. These cupcakes were made and photographed by Vanessa Hollis.

More cupcakes for a 40th Birthday, pink and stylish. 

Last but certainly not least a cupcake tower! The only directions I was given were: there will be 70 people and the theme is Jungle - go for it. I had the freedom to decorate my heart out. Since it was for a gorgeous little girl's first birthday, I decided to keep the theme very sweet and cute.

A busy weekend with 50 mini-cupcakes in an Animal Farm theme. These little buggers were deceptively time-consuming to make! The wedding cake was a joy, not the candy pink I have been working with lately, but a refreshing pinkish orange. I could not lift it, it was so heavy. Luckily my delivery driver is very strong!!

Crazy cake weekend

What a crazy cake weekend it was. On Saturday I met 5 lovely ladies for a private Super Swirls cupcake decorating workshop. On Sunday I delivered 80 cupcakes for a beautiful Christening and had to part with my pet project for the week: a birthday cake for a young nurse. Loved making this one!

Roses and Pearls cake

A quick cake for my MIL's birthday. I can't take all the credit for it, my 3-year old daughter helped me a lot (as it was a family cake). She helped me bake, ganache, cover and decorate! I'm so proud!

Giggle and Hoot cake

I was asked to make Hoot from ABC's Giggle and Hoot for a first birthday party, covered in buttercream instead of fondant. I don't normally do buttercream covered cakes, in fact I haven't made many 3D novelty cakes either, but took the challenge! Three tiers of cake, filled with ganache and covered in buttercream with fondant accents. How cool is our little (or should I say BIG) Hoot!

Cupcake designs

I tried out some new designs for the fun of it - and to use my leftover flowers.
