Well I have to say I had not realised just how popular Elmo was for birthday cake designs. Since I put my Elmo Cake Topper post up all I have heard about is Elmo so I have put some of the cakes I have done together in this cake gallery.

They are simple and have great bright colours which young children really respond to. Of the two face cakes of Elmo one is smooth and the other has been made shaggy. The other thing which I should mention is the coloured balls around the base of some of the cakes. They can be all the same size or change from large to small – but the reason for the mention is that this is the first thing the children go for they just love them and most of the time they are just happy to have the balls then wait for the cake to be cut!

Bye for now, Michelle

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!!!

I thought I would start putting together different ideas for cake designs by cake colour. The first is Pink Cakes.

They range from christening and 1st birthday to 21st and 40th birthday cakes. The blossom cross cupcakes were for a christening the others were for easter. There is also a pregnant belly cake for a baby shower in the colour combination pink and black which always works.

The pink and black 40th birthday cake had silver detailing from the invitations that her mother had made.

Pinks come in such a wide colour range from soft baby to hot hot pink, dusky pink to mushroom pink. My advice is if there is a particular pink you want matched then just give your cake designer a colour swatch so that they have a reference. Colour matching is easily done as everything is hand coloured.

I hope these fondant cakes inspire you in finding the perfect cake design for your occasion.

Beautiful baby teddy bears decorate all these cakes. I make smooth bears and a shaggy version and they can come in any colour combination you wish. Some of the christening or baptism cakes also include a little crystal cross on one of the bears paws. Like the jungle animals if you carefully remove the bears they can be kept as a memento of the day. Fondant bears are not only for baby’s cakes the image with the two shaggy bears was for a 25th wedding anniversary.

I thought I would also show you my video on how to make the shaggy teddy bears – they really are very easy to make.

This is the link http://inspired-by-chocolate-and-cakes.com/inspired-by-michelle-YouTube.html and look for the How to make a shaggy fondant teddy bear video.

Enjoy! Bye for now, Michelle

Today I’m adding another couple of cake collages. The first one is some of my jungle cake designs. This has to be the most popular theme for christening and first birthdays for little boys. But I have also included a picture for a little girls theme as well. All the animals are made out of fondant and if carefully removed can be kept as a memento.

The animals can be made ahead of time but I would suggest if the monkey is going to sit on the side of the cake then add his legs and tail on the cake as you will get a better fit. Having said that my timing and work load usually means I’m making the animals fresh in position on the cake!!

1st birthday are probably the most celebrated until we reach the age of 16, 18 or 21 and parents put a lot of time and effort into planning the first birthday party. Creating a cake that is unique for this occasion is very satisfying and rewarding. This is just a selection of ideas – if you like the princess castle theme then I have also posted a collage of these cake ideas.

And of course more ideas can be found on my website which is inspired-by-chocolate-and-cakes.com or an easier way is inspiredbymichelle.com.au
