Burger and Chips Cake

Mmmmm…. this burger cake fooled a lot of people! It was soooooo much fun to make 🙂 I’d always wanted to try making a fake-burger cake and this was the perfect time… Phil’s birthday. He loves burgers (and cake) so the 2 went together hand in hand. I’d watched a video or two about how to create one and I also wanted to keep it as simple as possible (that’s how I always roll – simple.) How I Made It I used a very small round tin to bake 2 cakes (I think they were vanilla and chocolate in acontinue reading…

Ann’s 60th – 2 Tiers with Ribbon Roses

You think making beautiful roses is too hard? Nope. Read on. This cake was an order for a paying customer… in chocolate mud. The only request from my customer was that Ann liked blue – lots of blue! And she was happy with modern roses. So I became creative! I baked 2 sizes of round mud cakes, and covered them with the matching dark chocolate ganashe. Then came the pale blue coloured fondant. I stacked them and instantly – kapow – a professional looking cake. The fun decorations came next. A mix of white, dark blue and light blue ribboncontinue reading…

My Grandpa’s 80th – 2 tier ‘cooking’ themed cake

My Grandpa loves cooking. And he loves cake. And he loves purple. He is also a cake decorator himself. He made my 21st birthday cake 🙂 So when it was his 80th birthday coming up and I offered to make him a special cake, he jumped at it. And when I was lost for ideas, this is what my Grandma suggested. Cooking. A cooking themed cake! He loves baking and cooking and even taped all the daggy 80’s cooking shows to watch them over and over again and copy what the pros were doing. He really takes pride in hiscontinue reading…

Bek’s Birthday / Zebra Print Cake

This was a cake I made for my friend Bek. She is a single, fun, sassy girl and I told her I would make her a fun single tier cake to cut for dessert at her birthday lunch. Animal print and hot pink was the answer! Baking the Cake I started with a tall 20cm (8″) vanilla buttercake using 2 cake batters. To add to the surprise I added some Wilton Rose coloring to make the inside cake hot pink. Once it cooled I covered it in my buttercream icing recipe and covered the whole cake in smooth white fondant. Creating the Zebra Patterncontinue reading…

White Chocolate and Raspberry Blondies Recipe

After discovering a little secret ingredient called ‘essence’ *said romantically!* I concocted these babies – yum! The sweet combo of white chocolate, mixed with the fruitiness of raspberry in a delicious “blondie”. Raspberry Essence is the trick here, which is cheating to some but so simple to store in the cupboard and add to icings, fondant, chocolates and even cake recipes. It’s become a favourite flavour choice for our family – to add some difference to a simple chocolate mud cake. I often complement it with raspberry icing. Here’s my recipe. Ingredients 1+1/4 cup plain flour 2 Tbs self-raising flourcontinue reading…
