Sex in the City Cupcakes

So I had to 'Chanel' the inner diva for these sex it the city cupcakes, lol.  Not that hard really.  It's not that often actually that I get to do something that is a mixture of a little more grown up but also fun & these were just that.

They were gift box for a special ladies lunch where they were celebrating a 30th birthday.

The cake for the cupcakes was 'Blondie' vanilla butter cake paired with a smooth vanilla buttercream.

They was a mixture or buttercream & fondant finishes, which I just love the look of.  I embossed the fondant ones for a little extra effect.

Of course hot pink & black was the perfect colour combination.

I think the high heeled shoes & the cityscape were my favourites.

Wedding Gown & Tux Engagement Cake

For this engagement cake I gave the bride to be some ideas for the cake & she picked a few which I fussed together to create this.  It could probably also be used as a wedding cake for a small gathering.

The cake was 3 layers of 'Killer Chocolate' (chocolate sponge cake) with chocolate buttercream filling & a chocolate ganache coating, then covered in marshmallow fondant.

It was a 10" square cake which is approx 50 regular serves.

I received these comments from the bride to be on my facebook page:

"Thank you so much for my cake everyone raved about it and it wad absolutely delicious - definitely getting you to make our wedding cake!!! Thanks again :)"

"Ooooooo that's my engagement cake!!! It was to die for and everyone commented on how good it was!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!" Amanda

Mickey's Playhouse Cake (or Minnie's actually)

I love, love, loved doing this cake it was so much fun!  The theme was obviously Disney's playhouse but with more of a focus on Minnie than Mickey.

It was a 10" square cake on the bottom (approx 50 regular serves) & the red playhouse body was approx 8 serves.

The cake was layers of 'Blondie' (vanilla butter cake) filled with a rich chocolate buttercream & all coated in a  chocolate ganache before being covered with marshmallow fondant.

I absolutely loved making the sugar characters!

Ballet Cupcakes

These beautiful cupcakes were for a little girl's 8th birthday.  She is a keen dancer & was even lucky enough to dance with the Russian Imperial Ballet when they came to Mackay, well done you!

There was 24 'Killer Chocolate' (chocolate butter cake) cupcakes with a mixture of buttercream & fondant finishes.

The toppers were all handmade by me & included flowers, ballet shoes (my favourite), tiaras & tutus in various shades of pink.

Cherry Blossoms & Butterflies

This cupcake tower was for a 21st birthday.  The brief was flowers & butterflies without too much pink  so these were my creations.

There were 24 cupcakes which were a mixture of 'Killer Chocolate' (chocolate butter cake) & 'Blondie' (vanilla butter cake) both with vanilla buttercream.

All the sugar decorations were handmade by me.

The top cake was 3 layers of 'Midnight Delight' (dark chocolate mud cake) with chocolate ganache filling & was a 6" round cake (approx 10 regular serves).

Sesame Street Birthday Cake & Cupcakes

These were another case of so called children's characters being used for a grown up birthday.  They were for a young lady who was a Sesame Street fan's 18th birthday.

There were 2 dozen cupcakes featuring the Sesame Street characters of Elmo, Grover, Zoe, Big Bird, Oscar & Cookie Monster all handmade using marshmallow fondant.

The cake for the cupcakes was 'Killer Chocolate' (milk chocolate sponge) & the rich buttercream frosting was chocolate hazelnut.

There was also an accompanying Sesame Street themed cake, which was a 10" round cake (approx 35 regular serves).

The birthday girls favourite character is Zoe so naturally that was who I had to make for the top of the cake.
