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.

wedding cake idea single sugar peony flower Inspired by Michelle Cake Designs

wedding cake idea single sugar peony flower with bees Inspired by Michelle Cake Designs

Hi, I was asked to show in more detail the wedding cake I have displayed on the side of my blog. So I went searching for the original images and I put this little cake gallery together.

The colours were taken from the wedding invitation as were the little bees.

The flower is my version of a peony or a full open rose and is made from sugar paste – I have made then in all sorts of colours.

The bottom tier is a double height cake which means it is two separate cakes on their own boards set up together before the final layer of ganache and fondant icing. This makes serving the cake very easy as you cut down to the first board, serve the top tier, remove that board then you can serve the bottom tier.

Bye for now, Michelle

I thought I would share some 4th of July cupcake decorating ideas. They are all simple and use rolled fondant icing.

I think as a mixed display they look fabulous – you can not go wrong with red, white and blue.

You could also just choose one design and keep it as one colour variation or mix it up. So you could choose the stars design and instead of white blue and red some could be red. white and blue and the others blue, red and white etc.

It’s a little hard to see in the cake gallery but the red and white striped cupcake with the blue heart has the blue heart embossed with stars to keep in with the theme.

I think a display of the LOVE design would look amazing.

I also made the paper cupcake cases to match the theme.

engagement wedding cupcake decorating ideas inspired by michelle cake designs

engagement, wedding cupcake decorating ideas inspired by michelle cake designs

These are some engagement cupcakes I made the other week for a lovely couple. The colours and design details match their engagement invitations.

The brown boards you can see are brown fondant covered cake boards with white blossoms and white ribbon trim. These were used to display the cupcakes in the centre of the tables – acting as centre pieces for the evening which I thought was a clever idea as it reduced the costs for the party but still made a lovely and personal display. I have only shown the boards with a few cupcakes on them as I did not want to damage them. The paper cases also matched the theme colours.

The cupcakes were three different flavours – chocolate mud, white mud and caramel mud. Two had rolled fondant tops with chocolate ganache underneath the other design had buttercream swirls.

Baby showers vary so much in size so in this gallery of cake designs I have included cupcakes which can be for a small family gathering or on mass for an over the top celebration.

The pregnant belly cake can be decorated in a dress that suits the colour scheme of the baby shower or the mother-to-be’s favourite dress or to match her personality.

I have a How to make the fondant nappy page on my website http://www.inspiredbymichelle.com.au they are really easy and can be made in advance making decorating the cupcakes on the day quick and easy.

The baby bottle cakes can be done in absolutely any design and colours – they could have a design on them that matches the invitation.
