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.

These are just a few of the fun cake designs I get to make or I guess you could also call them novelty cakes.

Usually they are for birthday celebrations young and old but there is a wedding cake and a kitchen tea cake amongst them.

I particularly loved the challenge of making the birthday cake bus carry partying dogs to a 30th party – the design came from the smilebox animated invitation.

Yes I know this is a little bit early but I was just organising some images and I thought I would add these now rather than forgetting later. The reason I was going through my images is orders for Halloween cakes are already coming in!!

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!

The other day I had a phone call asking if I could make a birthday cake with an elmo theme – it was for someone who had planned to make the cake herself but things had changed at the last minute and she just did not have the time.

I had to say no as I was already fully booked and could not squeeze another order in no matter how much I wanted to help.

I then received another call filled with hope that I could at least make the elmo cake topper for her so I said yes and I am glad I did because it made me realise that really it was just a variation on my video tutorial on how to make a shaggy teddy bear.

The only changes I made were to make the arms and legs a little longer and squash his head a little so it was elongated slightly. I painted the inside of his mouth with black food colouring everything else is the same as the tutorial which is very easy but I do have to warn you making the fur does take a little time and it seems all the bears I make these days are the shaggy version but I only have myself to blame as I sit there snipping away!!

Elmo is very popular for birthdays so I hope this is useful.

This is my favourite cake for June and I have to admit it is purely because I made it for my amazing nephew Jasper’s 6th birthday.

Jasper is a master at constructing lego so I started with a simple lego block and then added the cheeky monkey from the birthday card I bought for him.

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!!!
