This 21st birthday cake idea present design has to be my most popular when I’m asked to do two tiers but this week for the first time I was asked to make it in colours other than pink and white!! I was starting to think this would never happen.

This is the original design which was actually the first cake I posted in this blog.

This time the hearts were replaced with polka dots but other than that it is the same. You could also use stars or flowers in the design.

I did include a swing tag with initial in diamante on the top tier.

I really like the tiffany blue, white, black and silver colour combination.

The top tier was white mud cake layered with white chocolate ganache and the bottom tier chocolate mud with dark chocolate ganache.

Bye for now, Michelle

Sometimes you meet the nicest people when designing cakes for their celebrations.

This time is was the most adorable, happy and positive little girl who was so enthusiastic when choosing the design details for her First Holy Communion Cake. She definitely put a smile on my face!!

In the night garden is very popular – not that I understand any of it!! so it is not surprising Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy and Makka Pakka are also popular when it comes to birthday cakes. These are a few fondant cakes I have made recently – I hope you find them useful when designing your own cakes.

This ladybug cake collage came as a request from Sue in Canada asking if I could put some of my ladybug designs together in one image so she could use it to work from whilst making her daughters 1st birthday cake.

So Sue I hope this helps!!!

This is a girls confirmation cake design that I made lat week and I was really pleased with the final result. It used white, soft pink and an almost mushroom pink/brown as it’s colour scheme.

The design is simple but elegant with an embossed dove and cross on the top. White blossoms some with a pink centre soften and sweeten the design. A little sugar paste butterfly with the inscription finishes the design.

I’m doing a variation of this for a boys confirmation next week so I will also make a post for that cake.

I think variations of this would work well for many occasions. The dove could be replaced by a monogram, birthday number or even just a cross for a christening cake.

I have put a few photos together of a cupcake tower that I made this week for a 30th birthday celebration. The theme was black, purple and silver – diamonds and pearls.

The top cutting tier coconut cake with white chocolate ganache layers was shimmered dark to light purple with two rows of purple pearls and a single row of diamante to finish. The birthday girls initial “L” was made in black fondant and decorated with large diamante. On delivery the fantastic “30” in diamante was added to the cake. The birthday inscription was finished in silver and three purple candles one for each decade added to the cake board.

The white chocolate cupcakes were baked in black foil paper cases and topped with white and purple buttercream swirls. These were then decorated with large silver pearls and either white or purple smaller pearls all edible.

I cover the display boards that held the cupcakes in black and purple fondant and trimmed them with purple ribbon to match the top tier. The cupcakes were then displayed alternate purple/white/purple buttercream etc.

The purple has photographed a little out of true colour. I added a couple of the cupcakes to the display so you can see the effect. The reason I usually do not photograph the whole display is that I decorate my buttercream cupcakes in their packing boxes that way they do not get damaged so that is why you will see a lot of my pictures of cupcakes in boxes.

I just wanted to show you a christening cupcake tower that I made last week.

There was a selection of both chocolate and caramel cupcakes which had been topped in either white or pink buttercream (my recipe is so so so smooth http://inspired-by-chocolate-and-cakes.com/chocolate-buttercream.html ) or whipped dark chocolate ganache.

They were baked in pink, silver and gold foil cases to tie in with the christening theme. They were topped with handmade fondant decorations – a mixture of small embossed butterflies in pink and white, pearls, bows and blossoms in pink and white.

Some of the cupcakes were displayed on the families wire cupcake stand and others were packed into display boxes and tied with ribbons as gifts for the guests.

The top cake had a piped design in pink that included butterflies, flowers and a bird amongst the swirls. It was displayed in front on the cupcake tower as I did not chance putting it on top of the slightly wobbly stand!

The whole display looked lovely and I received a wonderful thank you and some photos that I have included in this collage.
